Did you know Lands' End carried sleek workout gear? I didn't until about two weeks ago when they invited me to test out some new gear.
One of my first tips for those undertaking a fitness program is to dress the part. Shabby sweats won't inspire you to carve time out for YOU. Rather than spending big cash on gear, go to Lands' End for well priced staples in incredible colors.
Since I like to switch my workouts up (a little running, a little yoga, etc.) I favor a all-purpose workout wardrobe. The Colorblock Performance Pants is perfect for me. I love the clean lines and pops of color on the waist band (and if you love all black, guess what they are reversible) plus they won't get stinky thanks the lifetime antimicrobial properties. I found them to fit true to size--no big squeeze trying to get them on. The fit is flattering since the color (ten different choices) hits at a forgiving spot on my waist. The best part...the price only $45.
What to wear on top? It's easy: The Performance Tee. 10 feel-good colors, such as Sunset Coral and Azure match back to the pant. The top offers the freedom of movement without looking baggie. If you hate clingy tops, but don't want to wear a junky tee, this top will leave you covered and stylish. Maybe inspire that extra workout each week! It's all got built-in UPF 35 and the antimicrobial benefits of the pant for all of you lucky souls in warm climates (it's 23 here in NYC). $19.50
