It's super easy to throw on sweats, a sports bra and a ratty T shirt for your regular workouts. But why not dress with a bit more panache, not to mention technology?

APPAREL
Newer fabrics with spandex have the ability to retain their shape and performance while also allowing your skin to breathe which will keep you cooler and more comfortable for longer.

A great workout wardrobe should include three lengths of basic black (or other dark neutral) bottoms: full, cropped and knee length. These three will provide you with options for different seasons. Bold colors and prints seem a bit too fussy to NWS and simply arent as flattering as black, navy and gray. A cult favorite is the Groove Pant by Lululemon. These are so fabulous if you pair them with the right top and accessories you can easily wear them for non exercising pursuits pre and post gym!

A good sports bra is vital, especially if you are well endowed. Breathability is essential to prevent acne and skin irritation. Look for a variety of colors to spice up your basic black bottoms. A new style by Champion features a full coverage sports bra with an empire baby doll mid section rather than a tight fitting bodice.

ACCESSORIES AND GEAR
A headband that won't budge is key for keeping hair off your face. Goody Stay Put bands and elastics in black are the best in general form and function. A wide fabric bandeau is also a stylish way to tame hair during and post workout.

Sneakers, or trainers, have come along way in style - not to mention stability. Adidas, Puma and Nike offer great looking shoes with metallic accents that offers a fun yet sophisticated look to basic sport footwear. Trainers don't have to be bright pink to show off your feminine side.

For gym bags or yoga mat holders look to Stella McCartney for Adidas. Her design esthetic brings high end details and color palettes to an otherwise lackluster category.

A girl's gotta stay hydrated so grab a good looking reusable bottle that you'llbe happy to reach for time and again. BPA free versions abound - try Nalgene, Bobble (which filters as you drink), Kor or Kleen Kanteen.

BEAUTY
Refresh your skin post workout with a hydrating fine mist from an Evian atomizer for your face and a fragrant yet natural spritz of light body splash such as The Body Shop's Total Energy Uplifting Spritz.

Eos lip balm is da bomb (apologies) for organic moisture and the bright spheres are super easy to spot in the gym bag. The price allows you to stash multiples in strategic places like a gym locker, car and desk.
