Whether you're an athleisure enthusiast or a Barry's Bootcamp fanatic, chances are you've got a drawer full of leggings and sports bras spilling over at home. Stylish gym-wear can be the key to a great workout (not that it has to be), but sometimes the bottomless pit of black tops and pants can feel a bit boring. Luckily, celebrities have endorsed the easiest way to instantly dress up your workout outfit.
Hint: It's all about the bag. By adding a simple, structured purse into the mix, fashion idols like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Gigi Hadid bring that extra ounce of polish to their look. The result is that it's easy to transition from workout to whatever's after without feeling too underdressed. Whether it's a simple crossbody or an office-ready, sophisticated satchel, we think these stylish ladies are onto something.
