Style File: Fitness Fashion
These days, people are exercising their fashion sense during their workouts. In today's Style File, 7's Belkys Nerey shows us the latest ways to look great at the gym! If you've hit the gym in South Florida lately, you know a ratty T-shirt and sweats just won't cut it. More and more of us want to sweat in style.
WSVN -- A quick search on YouTube, and you see the fashion of fitness dates back to the 80s with leotards and headbands.
Fast forward to '08 and you can look just as stylish at the gym minus the big hair.
Janis Saffell: "If you're excited about the way you look, you're going to be excited about going and working out."
Miami Designer Janis Saffell's brand new line Couture Active Wear is made for women who want to pop in the gym and still look good after they sweat.
Janis Saffell: "Something that is more fashionable versus athletic so you can go from the gym to go out shopping and still look fresh and fantastic."
You can mix and match printed tops with their capris, cargos or shorts. Then, throw on a jacket later. Each piece is made with great detail from hardware to pockets, so they look like regular clothes.
Barbara Quanstrom: "One of the things I love about our collection is the detail in the pants. It's like the new jean."
Another plus, all of the clothes are comfy, and they suck you in.
Janis Saffell: "It basically holds you in and gives you a desired booty effect, so it's good for people who want to show off what they worked so hard in the gym."
For added sass, the line even includes jewelry, headbands and bags, so, after you run, you look runway ready. For you serious athletes who love to stretch your limits, check out Lululemon Athletica in Aventura Mall.
Robin Myones: "Our clothes are designed by athletics for athletes, so fit and function are foremost."
Their athletic wear is great for yogis with pants made to bend with you and tops that don't rise up. They also make their clothes to be quick drying and anti-stink, good for sweating in our hot weather.
Robin Myones: "Definitely our fabrics set us apart. We pride ourselves on our technical fabrics, whether it's our quick drying moisture wicking fabrics or organic fabrics."
You'll also find features like a hidden pocket to stash your gym card and a slot made just for your mp3 player, so go get physical and look fabulous.
Janice's Couture Active Wear line can be bought online and at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. Lululemon Athletica is located in Aventura Mall.
