Fitness meets Fashion
Forget the tank top and shorts at the gym—fitness has become fashionable, and now you can be dressed to kill from the athletic courts to the yoga mat. The Miami-based production company FUNKSHION (known for producing events such as Miami Swim Week) showed off the latest trends in activewear from top brands like Beyond Yoga, Luli Fit, Michi, Shape Active and Ultracor, along with interactive wellness events, nutritional panels and fitness classes, at a four-day event called THE RETREAT Miami. This summer, keep cool (and sexy) in mesh, whether it’s a top or a head-to-toe outfit. “I think the mesh trend is making activewear more feminine,” says Luli Hanimian, founder of Miami-based company Luli Fit. “Mesh styles are comfortable, breathable and, most importantly, stylish. They can be worn to the gym over a sports bra, out and about layered over a tank, and for a night out, you can pair it with your favorite bralette.” When it comes to leggings or sports bras, take a cue from hair trends and choose an ombre style—and slouchy “joggers” are hot to trot, whether you’re really jogging, or just jaunting to Happy Hour.
