Hey all you fab, fit, fashionistas! Just because it’s Fashion Week in NYC, doesn’t mean we can skip a sweat-sesh. This Workout Wednesday it’s all about couture calorie-crunching. I’m super psyched to be sharing the winning look from the “Field Day” Challenge from episode 8 of Project Runway! The winning look was this awesome ensemble designed by Helen Castillo and will be reproduced and sold for Heidi Klum’s New Balance line (HKNB)! 

Designers were asked to create performance-wear that was fashionable and functional … and that it is. These high-waisted leggings have extra stretch to provide lots of mobility in a slimming sleek black design with colored mesh details. While the off-the-shoulder, flashdance-esque tee is amazingly soft with just the right amount of neon. And can we discuss this hoodie? The adjustable cinched waist and light-weight mesh is ultra flattering and great for trips to the gym. Or better yet, pair it with heels and skinnies for girls night out. Talk about a multitasking must-have!

I’m giving away this original (SIZE SMALL) workout masterpiece to one lucky reader! Just follow the deets below to enter!

    I would love to be he envy of my workout buddies. The jacket is the best! I think I would wear it with other things as well. Please, please!!! I had brain surgery 1 year old and had to shave my head. Very traumatic. I’m working to make myself a better person. This would be a great addition. 🙂

    Immediately looked up this outfit when Helen won! The NB pricetag is a bit hefty for my budget, so winning it would be beyond amazing. Love, love, love!

    I LOVE this outfit – super stylish and fun!! I always love their fitness wear challenges on Project Runway. This outfit is perfect to transition into the winter. And I really loved the shirt, even though it was the judges least favorite part of the outfit! (I retweeted and like on instagram – if you need the names just ask 🙂
