Good quality workout pieces are hard to come by, but ones I can easily transition from a workout outfit to an all day look are even more rare. This is why I was excited to come across this lovely faux leather workout jacket from Movimento Apparel. Though it doesn’t look it, it is a very breathable faux leather made with a spandex blend so it’s a thinner more gym like material, (unlike leather which is usually a thicker material and not very flexible). My favorite part about this piece is the long circle scarf on the neck, because it’s so long it actually covers most of your chest and all the way down the torso. I don’t personally go to a gym to work out, I get my exercise thru hiking and doing Pilates or yoga. So this jacket is ideal to have on a hike where we often go out for food after and sometimes stay out longer than anticipated. Though for a more intense workout at a gym where you’re really moving and don’t want the circle scarf to get in the way, you can circle it more tightly around around your neck. I have a special discount code for 15% off of this jacket as well, “VELVETFIT”.
To show how easily this piece can transition from a gym look to an everyday outfit, I decided to only change the shoes and add a bag. This change takes only seconds. The only other thing I would possibly change is to put my hair up in the first look if you’re doing a more intense workout, however I was going on a mellow hike and didn’t mind having my hair down. The second look took me only ten seconds to change into. I just slipped off my workout shoes, zipped up my boots and I was good to go. I didn’t change anything else about this look except the shoes, and grabbing my purse. You can see within just a few seconds the look is much more polished. I will have a direct link to the jacket listed below along with all other outfit details.
