Forget running in heels—Aussie boss babe, fashion pro (and January Jones doppelganger, IMO) Zanita Whittington prefers lacing up a pair of sneakers, whether she’s behind the camera creative directing a photo shoot or in front of the lens showing off her serious street style game. But the model’s affinity for activewear doesn’t end at her ankles.
Her Instagram feed is filled with stellar #OOTD inspo (plus, don’t-miss cameos from her cute pooch) that effortlessly combine athleisure staples like cropped, crewneck sweatshirts, shrunken white tees, and strategically placed tube socks with her designer duds. So what’s her secret to striking the perfect fitness/fashion balance?
She prefers to keep things simple, favoring clean-lined separates and unadorned accessories. Take, for example, her collection of kicks. While some sneakerheads will admit to owning dozens of trainers, Whittington’s whittled hers down to “about five or six pairs” of mainly white, unembellished treads, including one set she can’t live without. And nope, it’s not her Stan Smiths.
