11 Workout Looks That Actually Resemble Real Clothing
It's official: workout wear and ready-to-wear have collided to bring us an intriguing hybrid of movement-friendly clothing that actually looks quite chic. While some athletic brands may still favor neon and Spandex, the new workout ensemble looks like it could easily be worn on the street without inciting ridicule. We combed through our favorite fashion sites and pulled together 11 athletic looks that are passable for post-workout activities, too.
