"Work it" While You Work Out

by Stacy Cox

After overindulging a little since Thanksgiving (darn those pumpkin and ginger snap lattes!), I find myself fighting with a little somethin’ somethin’ extra spilling over the waist of my jeans – and it’s not pretty. So, like many of my fellow resolution-makers, it’s back to hitting the gym with fervor. In honor of this renewed fitness inspiration, it’s the perfect time for us to investigate the latest in fashion forward workout attire.

Printed Yoga Mat & Mat Bag

These yoga mats are so much hipper and edgier then my old clunker in navy blue, so I am opting for the Damask model. Stacy’s navy blue yoga mat: R.I.P. 06/2007 to 01/2009.

Hit the gym and get a drink afterwards in these leggings with the famously retro stripes (which just happen to elongate and flatter your legs).

Burton Fly Insulated Pants

For snowbunnies, these insulated pants pack toasty insulation into a weatherproof, shred-ready shell. I picture these with a cute thermal or cashmere sweater with a zebra or leopard print and voila you are a snow princess! They come in antique white too.

What fashion article would be complete without a handbag of some sort? This gym bag has a removable cosmetic case and shower caddy. Personally, I wouldn’t mind toting this around on a daily basis, it’s cute and simple.
