The gym was the one place where we could all look somewhat awful and let our guard down, red cheeked, sweaty and out of breath…but wearing stylish clothes while feeling exhausted, couldn’t hurt, right?

These outfits are now worn outside of the gym, and are part of people’s regular wardrobe ensembles.
