Sticking to a fitness routine is hard enough let alone in the dead of winter and frigid East Coast temps. But with the right gear that looks and feels fabulous, that’s half the battle. So when NikeWomen asked me to put their new Zonal Strength Training Tights to the test, I was super psyched to take the challenge! I was asked to style them 5 ways throughout the week from workouts to date night, and everything in between! And NYC has had a roller coaster of temps this month ranging from 65 degrees to freezing, but these tights kept me comfy and looking cool, no matter what the weather.
First up! Hitting the streets for a hardcore sweat-sesh keeping up my cardio with jumping rope, walking lunges and burpees to keep my heart rate up and my muscles toned. This bold bright bra is right on track mixing fashion and function to hold me in no matter how high I jump! And keeping with my colorful vibe, I love the pinky peach sports bra paired with these rockin’ Flynit Training kicks that keep me light and fast on my feet.
Whether I’m on foot or cool cruisin’ for a fit-filled day of outdoorsy exploring, I want a workout look that seamlessly goes from my fitness activities, to daily life—without a hitch. This cool crop top allows me to do just that, and mixes into my sporty wardrobe any day of the week.
It’s important for me to keep a healthy balance of work and play in my life, so when I get the chance to kick up my heels and take a carousel ride, I’m in! Being dressed and ready for an adventure at a moment’s notice is key for me, and these tights allow me to do just that. The subtle print and gradation of color in a grey-to-black hue make them versatile enough to play perfectly with a sheer blue tulle skirt. They keep me warmer than stockings and the stretchy soft fabric keeps up with my fast pace no matter how much I move, even in a skirt. A rainbow sequined tee with gemstone flats add just enough sparkle for high-energy style and a day of fun!
On days when I don’t have meetings or photo shoots, I like to pile comfy layers over my workout gear for coffee dates and catching up on life. That way, I’m ready for a workout anytime throughout the day, no sweat! And when it’s super cold, these tights keep me toasty and trendy tucked into my snow boots with pops of color peeking out for fun.
Running from meeting to events during the week keeps me on my toes, but comfort is key for me, no matter how dressy I have to be. So, if I can find a way to sneak my gear into my outfit under flirty skirts and heeled booties, I will! It allows me to stay on the move in style, and reminds me that after my work is done for my business, I have NO EXCUSE not to do more and get my daily dose of fitness in at the end of the day. Plus, no matter how much I might dread it, I always feel energized and refreshed after a workout!
Finally, to end the week I love to dress up for date night in NYC. I’m usually coming from a workout, so when my sequined tunic and silver bomber can seamlessly coordinate with my tights, I’m one happy girl. And adding some sparkly ankle boots and glam accessories ups the ante for a night on the town after an action-packed week!
