Bold Prints, Bright Hues: Meet Your New Gym Look

Next time you’re running the trails or hitting the gym, take a look around. In case you haven’t already noticed, when it comes to athletic clothing, brights and prints are taking over. Why? They’re fun, bold, and give that extra kick of motivation. Here’s how to incorporate them into your workout.

For Women:
Pair big prints with small. Try a legging in an allover high-contrast design (you can get away with it, promise) topped with a tank in a quieter one.

For Men:
Energize your routine with masculine, tech-driven patterns. Think gradients and abstract maps on either top or bottom – never both at the same time.

Start loading up on prints and color. Our Reebok Boutique opened Wednesday, August 6, at 11AM ET.

Get Enlightened: How to Wear Metallics for Spring

1411865504_RLLZ_1

Ahh, metallics. The not-so-distantly-removed cousin of Trends We Hesitate to Try. According to the spring 2013 runways, however, we can go ahead and embrace the precious tones as a new wardrobe staple. Here’s how.

Stick to the classics. While multi-hued metallics are majorly on-trend right now, you can never go wrong with silver, gold, or rose-gold metallic tones. A silver pair of heels will punch up a jeans-and-tee ensemble.

Play with prints. Fun prints are an easy way to wear this trend without going over the top. A brocade or floral print adds subtle texture.

Anchor it. The great thing about metallics? They’re universally flattering. If you’re aiming to be noticed, select one piece and build your look around it. A light gold skirt, paired with a neutral or chambray top, will nail this trend on the head.

Drop a hint. Adding accents is a fun way to incorporate this trend while still looking office-appropriate. Cap-toe metallic flats, gold-trimmed anything, and the old standby of bold statement jewelry will always pair well with a floral dress or structured blazer.
