Whether you’re working your ass off at REV or walking your pooch, you bet you’re rocking your athletic wear. Athletic fashion has taken over, and fitness junkies can sport their favorite workout apparel wherever, whenever. You work hard to tone that bod, so why not show it off with what the fashion experts have gifted to us, as “athleisure.”
By now, you’ve probably seen REV barre instructor Kelsey McGlynn, who besides wearing a smile ear-to-ear, is always wearing a chic outfit, whether she’s bringing the burn to her clients or taking a class. Kelsey is here to show us how to easily go from REV to almost any situation (did someone say happy hour?). And, with winter fast approaching, she’s got you covered with all of her favorite cold-weather accessories—all you need are a few key staples to take you from the studio to the street.
Leggings are technically pants right? Kelsey’s favorite pair? She gets hers from Girlfriend Collective. (Bonus: these leggings are partly made from recycled materials so you can look good and feel good about what you’re wearing) Choose from a variety of colors, and wear them to barre, spin, your next Netflix binge, and of course, the bar to grab a few drinks with your tribe after class.
Not Kelsey. Hide it under a hat or a beanie. Kelsey loves to rock her post workout look with a beanie in the winter. Her fave: Spacecraft Otis Beanie from EVO in Grey and Red colors.
Need that extra layer on your way to your workout? Grab a cozy scarf! It’s one of Kelsey’s favorite accessories to throw on over her gear on the way to the studio! It’s especially key after you’ve put in the work, you’re still sweating, and not quite ready to put on a jacket. Her fave: A plaid blanket scarf like this - ModCloth- Loch & Key Scarf in Forest Plaid.
And, when you are ready for that jacket to complete your athleisure look, try this one: A hoodie from Terminal D London Uk; Kelsey found this gem during her recent trip to London at the Stable Market Camden Town. In Kelsey’s eyes, this style staple a total game changer. “After I work out I often continue running errands, and I don't change out of my workout gear,” she says. Just throw on a jacket to dress up your workout clothes, and you look like a rock star.
Post sweat sesh, you don’t need to put on a full face of makeup (FYI: you’re beautiful just the way you are) before kicking it with friends out on the town. Try locally handmade everyday facial oil to keep that glow going with Face Nourish by SoBotanical. Kelsey LOVES that it’s organic, hydrating, eliminates toxins, and adds a glow to your skin.
Kelsey is always looking for eclectic jewelry pieces to add more style to a more simple athleisure look. Right now, she’s loving EarthBones: Locally handmade everyday wear accessories. Find her pictured ring here. Or find your own unique piece at EarthBones at R. House’s Greater Goods Market.
At the end of the day, Kelsey loves to mix and match styles to create trendy, yet casual looks that work for her busy schedule and keep her feeling confident. And, you can too! Don’t be afraid to rock that post-sweat session glow, because you earned it!
