It’s in our DNA to accessorize (that’s our story and we’re sticking to it!). Accessories can add interest to or add a little personal expression to any outfit, so why not add to your sweat style game by tossing an accessory or two into the mix! Not only are they fashionable, accessories can also be very functional. Below are a few more reasons to invest in that item you’ve been coveting:
To save money – buying a bottle of water each time you go to spin class adds up and most studios now have filtered water fountains. Invest in a durable, easy to clean water bottle once and your wallet will thank you. We love S’well bottles, they come in fabulous designs, keep drinks cold for up to 24 hours and can be used for hot drinks, keeping them toasty for up to 12!
To minimize germ transfer - Now, we don’t want to make germaphobes out of everyone but let’s be honest, it’s cold and flu season and you can’t control how well someone wipes down their weights after they use them. Props Athletics makes functional, badass looking gloves that solve the problem. Wear them to spin, barre, pilates, the gym, etc. Wearing them reduces your chances of soaking up other people’s germs, provides increased grip with the addition of silicon on the palm, and makes you look super hardcore, in the best way.
So you don’t slip – most barre classes request that everyone wear socks, preferabley with grips on the bottom. So why not look fly while you pulse? If you have a straight up shoe obsession like us, then dressing up your tootsies is likely right up your alley. We love Shashi socks, especially the mesh style with a little additional sparkle #blingbling
