How to Take Your Outfit From Workout to Weekend in 4 Steps

You know those days: the long, planned-out Saturday that encompasses running errands, meeting a friend for lunch, and trying to squeeze in a workout. Mary Seng of Happily Grey, who just ran her first half marathon earlier this month, opts for Lucy Activewear looks that keeps her going through the day—no matter where she finds herself.

Keep scrolling to see how to style your workout attire for an entire day of activities.

Whether you’re running from a nail appointment or brunch with a friend, find versatile pieces that you can easily wear out without a hitch, even if you do miss your afternoon Spin class.

“Always being on the go, I need a wide variety of strong pieces that can weather any climate, for any distance.” — Mary Seng

If you run, you’ll need less equipment with you and therefore can punch up your accessory game with a mini crossbody. If you’re more of a yogi or a Spinner, keep a larger bag with you to store any layers you won’t necessarily need for your workout.

“Darker hues or neutral colors make it super easy to style your active wear with trendier accessories. Once you’re ready to hit the gym, you just lose the scarf and statement sunglasses!” — Mary Seng

A lot of workout wear is bright, but opting for pieces that work best with your wardrobe is key to day-to-workout style.

“I’ve always been more attracted to even tones—gray, white, black, darker blues. It feels more sophisticated and minimal.” — Mary Seng

Peel off the pieces you don’t need for a workout, but when you’re ready to tackle the day, add accessories that keep your outfit bold and you.

“I always layer for chiller temps in the evenings. You can always take pieces off as you start to warm up in your workout. On a really chilly evening, I layer a tank, thin pullover, and then my lightweight Lucy down jacket.” — Mary Seng
