Chic gym-to-office bags: Stylish carryalls from Adidas, Gucci, and more to hold your workout gear and daily essentials
Working out fashionably
Cult brands such as Lululemon and Kydra have elevated our athletic wear from dowdy oversized shirts and FBT shorts (remember those?) to stylish sports tops and flattering leggings. But what about the gym bag that accompanies us to our workouts? Admittedly, we tend to reach for the nearest tote that will contain all the gym necessities (while hoping to maintain a vestige of style).
So what makes a gym bag great? While mini bags are popping off trend-wise, gym bags can’t be petite. These hold-alls have to fit a change of clothes, toiletries, exercise shoes, makeup, and work things — especially if you’re going from the office to the gym.
Material matters, too. Synthetics such as polyester are practical choices, as they are easy to clean and water-resistant, while natural materials allow you to transition between social occasions without the hassle of lugging multiple totes. Most of all, our gym bags have to be fashionable — nothing less for us stylish set after all.
To aid you in finding your perfect holdall, we've rounded up our favourites below.
