SheFinds Fitness Week: Stylish Sweating
January 11, 2007
Fitness Week Feature Find: Lucy running apparel
Why: Personal confession: I’m a cute workout wear convert. I used to wonder, “What’s the point of buying fancy workout gear when you’re just going to sweat all over it?” That was before I discovered the wonders of technical fabrics and activity-friendly design. The Lucy warmup hoodie is a workout MVP. Worn over insulating base layers, it’s great for chilly-weather running. Or toss it on after sweaty gym workouts — the mesh fabric keeps you warm while letting your skin breathe.
I usually get overheated running in pants on the treadmill, but the technical fabric of Lucy’s low-rise pants kept me cool and dry. The pants sit on the hips, and they come in short, medium and tall lengths, because really, one size hardly fits all. Another benefit of stylish workout gear? Looking good is an amazing motivator.
Price: pants, $60; hoodie, $65
