This morning, I’m super proud to introduce a new contributor to the FashionIs Everywhere team! I met the beautiful Anouare a little more than a year ago and we immediately talked about working together one day… and that day has finally come!
Every 2 weeks, Anouare is going to share her fitness must-sees, must-haves and must-try’s… so that we actually want to go back to the gym. She’s starting right away with the hottest gym bags out there (because if we want to get back to training, we need a stylish bag;)
Long gone are the days when we would exercise in baggy old t-shirts and ratty sweatpants. If, like me, you understand the power of a cute workout outfit, you’ve probably put some thought into pairing your mesh-accented gym tights with your snake print Nikes (guilty!).
This fall, why not give the same attention to the item that you use to carry your gear around? Leave your Céline at home, these cute and functional gym totes are the new It bags!
High Gloss and High-Performance
I love jazzing up an outfit with a little bit of sparkle, so I am digging the shiny finish of this bag. The stylish Lolë duffle features several compartments so you can fit your whole life into it while staying organized: A laptop pocket, a yoga mat compartment, a detachable cosmetic pouch, a shoe bag and even a key chain and smartphone pocket.
This sporty Lululemon clutch (48$) is so genius that I wish I invented it. It is big enough to carry all your post-workout essentials but small enough to fit into another bag. If you tend to commute to the fitness studio already dressed for your sweat session, carry it instead of a bulky bag. The machine-washable clutch opens up to reveal extra storage space and also features a large pouch to store your sweaty clothes.
Not your Boyfriend’s Duffle
This is a classic, no-fuss Nike gym bag (70$) with a feminine twist. The black and white colours will match any workout outfit while the polka dots keep it fun and girly.
From the Office to the Yoga Studio
If you work in a more conservative setting, this HYBA bag (60$) is sleek and smart enough to take you from the office to the yoga studio. Made with water-resistant nylon and polyester, it can fit your yoga mat and your lap top.
