The Fashionable Body

Diana Maciel A- A A+

Gym Gear and Wear Tends towards the Dowdy and Baggy, But it doesn’t to be!

Monster Mix
When gadgets get very small, they get pretty darn cool, but the size can also be a problem for people who tend to lose stuff. This is where these Mix Monsters iPod Shuffle 4G cases from Fred & Friends come into play. They’ll dress up your Shuffle as colorful one-eyed monsters and in turn you will be a monster on the treadmill.
$8.95 - www.amazon.com
 
Tanked Up
We love this tank layered over a simple workout bra. The twist detail on the back gives it some edge and the foiled logo in black-on-black make it a chic addition to your gym bag.
$29.99 - www.shopadidas.ca
Mat Matters
This thick yoga mat is luxuriously dense and cushioning—as opposed to the Presbyterian comfort minimalism of cheaper versions. A simple, elegant design, it will also help you claim a little extra space on the crowded yoga studio floor.
$94.00 - www.Manduka.com
 
To the Max
The spring 2012 Nike Airmax colorways seem to be ripped from the runway. This lovely color-blocked style in grey and red mesh will update your workout gear, and they are amazingly priced, too.
$56.66 - www.nikelv.com
 
Women of the Board
Yes, surfers are sexy, and that’s never a bad place to start. Better news is that their fashion sensibilities can be right on the money. A sterling example are these “Boyfriend” board shorts from Cambria that are both forgiving and clinging in all the right places.

Bag Lady
Go from sweating at the gym to looking cool while running errands after Pilates. The Puma workout bag has all the makings of a fashionable handbag but is made to wait patiently in your YMCA locker while you work out.
$62.99 - www.puma.com
 
Step it Up
This is iPad-meets-pedometer. Striiv is a keyfob “fitness tracker” with a touchscreen display that tracks your steps and even has a built in game and virtual world that rewards you for meeting goals. Striiv will even send you messages of encouragement. A fun way to keep in step with your work out.
