Half of the excitement around dinner or brunch out has to do with what we’re wearing. Over the past few years, the same has become true for the gym. Sure, we’d sweat things out without the fashion but, truth be told, nothing motivates us to hit a good class like a cute color story!
In the same way that a capsule wardrobe for work can streamline busy mornings and make Mondays easier to bear, organizing your gym clothes into a capsule wardrobe for the gym can be a total lifesaver. Stay consistent with those workouts knowing you’ve got a sports bra you can count on and all the comfortable little essentials that make working out fun and easy – and maybe even stylish.
Here are seven high-performance pieces – and one breakthrough workout tool – from Carbon 38 that can keep up with you seven days a week. Look through our list and see if you’re missing any of these useful essentials…they’re all 20% off – exclusively for Chalkboard readers!
The Tee: Carbon38 Crop Tank in White | Clean, flattering, and stays put start to finish. This is the tee we could never have enough of – it’s a fit for every type of class and the one you’ll wish wasn’t in the wash time and again. Stock up on a few! CHECK OUT
The sports Bra: Sayang Seminyak in Mauve | This intricately woven crop top offers medium support and maximum style points. The high neck makes for a flattering and lengthening look, the woven back gives the illusion of lightness, but won’t let you down. The perfect cut for your fiercest pair of high-waisted leggings. | CHECK OUT
The legging: Takara Legging in Wine| Ready to be in beast mode at the gym and need a look as fierce as you feel? The Takara leggings by Carbon38 sell out time and again for just that reason. They’re flattering AF, high-performance and will also become the legging you’ll wear most often outside the gym! CHECK OUT
FRANK & EILEEN Asymmetric Sweatshirt | This cute sweatshirt is easy to throw on over anything. The asymetric hem elevates it from basic and all black to something a bit more stylish. We recommend sizing-up for a breezy but still fierce look. CHECK OUT
The Jacket: Blanc Noir Motion Panel Puffer | A good workout could boost your winter immunity, but leaving class after breaking a sweat without covering up? Definitely not. We love this flattering structured puffer for ultimate cold-weather style. Listen up, New York. CHECK OUT
The Shorts: Takara Bike Short in Black | Cut from the leggings with the cult-following, these sleek shorts are the perfect blend of function and style. The thick, high-rise waist band won’t cut in and the liquid-like material keeps everything in place. Black, seamless, easy to slip on – these are the leggings you grab for a morning class before you’ve even woken up. | CHECK OUT
The Shoes: APL Bliss Sneakers | Light, comfortable and gorgeously streamlined, these shoes fit like second skin. The stretchy upper means they slip on with minimal effort (key!) and come in black, grey, pink and a full rainbow of other options – depending on your style. CHECK OUT
The tool: the Hypervolt | The Hypervolt might not fit into a capsule wardrobe per se, but trust us when we say this high-tech massage device melts muscle soreness, breaks up knots and boosts circulation like no other. It’s streamlined and highly effective — the ultimate accessory to pair with your capsule workout wardrobe! CHECK OUT
