Summer might be over, but that’s no excuse to give up on your workout routine—and maybe even pick up a few new pieces to wear while you get your bod in top-top shape. I’m always on the hunt for stylish workout clothes that can definitely be worn beyond the gym, so read on for a few of my favorite pieces that can go from the street to spinning!

1. A Peplum Top
I know what you’re thinking—peplum to the gym? Yup! This functional tank (Peplum Sport Top; $35; is almost too cute to sweat in!, but don’t worry, I tested it and it’s top notch. The breezy moisture-wicking fabric allows for plenty of ventilation during a workout, and looks stylish after I’m done on the treadmill and make my way through the city to get home. I also opted for a high-top sneaker for my street stroll and, when I get to the gym, I can swap them out for my yoga socks or cross trainers. For a groovy way to keep the tunes flowing, I’m loving these retro-inspired headphones from Puma to pump my playlist on!
