Every once in a while, I make a genius style discovery. Today is one of those days. I admit, what I 'discovered' has been in front of me the whole time. The item I am referring to is gym shorts. In my defence, I hate the gym, so it took me a while to really SEE them... Lazy girls of the world, you know what I mean, right?
Why gym shorts? They're comfortable, they're sweat-proof and they're the easiest pair of shorts to throw on and off (elastic waists FTW)! Moreover, the regular short-shorts silhouette is just a bit blah at the moment. Plus, the athleisure trend is not going anywhere. So, now, I ask you, ladies, why NOT gym shorts?
There are many ways you can style a pair of these wide-legged, sporty shorts. We like how Taylor Swift switched it up and wore them with a sweater, red lipstick and a fancy bag!
Elizabeth Tamkin from Manrepeller wore hers with a white shirt and ballet flats - and we loved it even more!
Want more? Here are 5 outfits you can style with just one simple pair of black gym shorts. One on-point look for each weekday!
All you need is a neutral coloured top with flirty details and some tan essentials and you're ready for a day on the town.
Resort to PJ dressing for a chic yet relaxed vibe. Wear the look to a party or an artsy event and show 'em how it's done.
Add an edge to your gym shorts by pairing a high-neck t-shirt, retro sunnies and sharp boots with them. Supermodel vibes, anyone?
Going to the movies? Get those gym shorts out! Club a graphic tee with 'em and layer the look with an oversized denim or neoprene jacket. Tada!
Happy hour just got happier, girls. Your cami tops make a great companion for those gym shorts. Add an elegant black blazer and pumps to the outfit and you're ready for your soiree!
