Best Workout Socks + How I Style Them

Hey guys!

It’s time for a fashion post! I haven’t done one of these in a WHILE, so I’m super excited to show you a few different looks that I’ve styled for the gym. I also challenged myself to show you 3 different outfits using 3 different sock styles.

I know that socks can seem like an afterthought most of the time, but they are so important! When you don’t wear them, your shoes smell! Or you get blisters! Or you develop even more serious injuries!

To be 100% honest though, I myself was guilty of not giving my feet the best care when it came to socks. I would just buy little boys’ socks since that gave me an automatic “no-show” look and it was cheap, but oftentimes, they would slip off mid-run. BAD IDEA.

Coincidentally, when I was watching Shark Tank (one of my fave shows), this sock start-up called BOMBAS was pitching their newly “re-engineered athletic-leisure socks with a mission to help those in need.”

Interesting, I thought.

When the owners said that socks were the #1 most requested item at homeless shelters, I immediately remembered all the men and women I saw on the streets on cold winter nights, my heart wrenching with sorrow, wondering if they had enough sleeping bags or coats to keep warm through the night.

This business has heart, and that, I respect tremendously.

They’ve donated over 900,000 socks since launching their company.

So, in today’s post, I am going to be featuring 3 different gym looks using 3 different sock heights from BOMBAS, in partnership and in support of their mission and their awesome product!

You can see all the socks I’m wearing in this post HERE!

LOOK #1: MONOCHROMATIC CITY CHIC

EF2A7016

Monochrome and super sleek. If you’re walking to your local Pilates or Barre studio, this look is it. Black leggings with a little ankle detail, a black bra with some edgy straps, and a grey wind jacket. No-show socks are a MUST here, as nothing can compete with the ankle detailing on the pant. Black sneakers of course.

This BOMBAS Invisibles sock as well as the others in their collection feature “invisitoe” which means that they got rid of the annoying bump that runs across the toes on most socks. The seams are hand-linked so you don’t feel anything across your toes!

LOOK #2: STRETCH SIREN

Feeling like a dancer in this bodysuit! I love stretching while feeling graceful, and beautiful – you gotta rock a leotard one of these days! It’s so fun! Kinda awesome that these socks match my pillows.

Check out this neat design! Because the honeycomb structure (from the bees!) is naturally strong, when knitted here, it provides extra support and tightness in your arch where you need it most!

LOOK #3: DANCING QUEEN

I had so much fun putting this one together. As many of you know, I LOVE dancing – and I LOVE dressing as fierce as possible when I am feeling the music. This outfit features a bright sports bra, booty shorts, a long sleeved mesh top, and wedges with pink calf socks. Oh and how do you like my braids!? I actually did them myself!

The Bombas Calf Sock isn’t too tight, and doesn’t slip down! WOOHOO!

The socks are comfortable, thick, and most importantly, they are backed by an honorable mission. Oh yeah, and Shark Daymond John ended up investing in the company! SO COOL!

If you guys want to give these socks a try, just go to Bombas and use the code “BLOGILATES” for 20% off your first order! We even created the Blogilates Fitness Pack which includes all my faves! Check out the pack HERE!

They also have an awesome 100% happiness guarantee. Basically, if you don’t think they are the most comfortable socks you’ve ever worn they will refund your entire purchase!

There you go guys! I hope you had as much fun looking at these styles as I did putting them together! Comment below and tell me which style you like best from my 3 looks! And…would you want more fashion posts?

    Hi Cassie,

    I was wondering what sneakers you wear/recommend for your HIIT and indoor workouts. I’ve tried searching through your youtube video descriptions (recent and older videos) and your website here, but I can’t seem to find any comments or mention of particular sneaker brands/styles – perhaps I’m not doing a great job hunting. Sometimes I look real close to see the brand but then I realized it doesn’t help too much if I don’t know the style.

    Thank you for your expertise!
    Emily

    My favourite one is #1 even if #2 is….<3

  3. Barbara A Shelton says:

    you look like you are enjoying life in the dancing queen look my fav

  4. Lacey Moyse says:

    I love #1 & #2 . Monochromatic looks rock plus I’m a former ballerina. But I LOVE your sneakers in #3. Where can I find those?

  5. Kylie Heng says:

    I had to take time to decide, but I think ultimately my favorite look is the first one. So chic! More fashion posts would be amazing! I love your style~

  6. Aemy says:

    omg I LOVE the look of those socks! What a great idea for a company! And the outfits are gorgggg but I particularly love the “Stretch Siren” look because it’s different, simple, and super sexy <3. Plus, anything that makes me feel like a ballerina is a keeper in my book. 😉

  7. Victoria says:

    Yes plz, more fashion posts!?

  8. Jessi Summers says:

    The dancing queen is a super cute look! 😀

  9. Cynthia B says:

    All three looks are really great! I want to know where you got the pants in look one and the mesh shirt in look three. It was a good idea to cover your chest in that second picture on look two it looks very classy. Heehee classy Cassie, lol

  10. Alyssa Gonzalez says:

    Cassey where did u get the sports bra in the first picture? I would love to wear that with ur black leggings!

  11. Rachael Hirstein says:

    I love the Dancing Queen one the best! It’s so fun and sporty!

  12. Kathryn St John-Shin says:

    I like the 1st and 3rd looks…on you. I myself wouldn’t/couldn’t wear those because of my belly. The leotard though is way past my taste. Even on you I’m not entirely sure of it. It comes awfully close to showing off bits that should stay hidden unless you’re an actress going commando and looking for attention. No insult intended because you still look good in it but it’s not something I like to see.

    As for the socks, I’ve tried all those lengths though not from that brand. I’ve always had a problem with the no-show socks slipping off so I stopped getting them. I tried the calf high kind for awhile but my clothes never went well with them so I didn’t get more when they get holey. My fav are the ankle socks because they protect my Achilles’ tendon. I always get C9 Champion from Target and have never had a problem with them. They look very similar to the orange ones you have on. My socks are getting holey again so I may try this new brand here. Maybe…

  13. Joanne says:

    I love the picture where you’re posing so gracefully in those orange socks! But you look graceful in all the pictures. 😉 I’d love to see more fashion posts! I’m super picky with socks, and I’ve never seemed to be able to find the perfect ones! Thanks for writing this blog post!

  14. Clair Yee says:

    where did you get the mesh top from?

  15. Grace says:

    Love it!!!! Thanks Cassey, would definitely read more fashion blogs in the future. My fav are the grey socks, could do with a pair of those!!!!! 🙂

  16. Michaela says:

    LOVE these ideas!!!

  17. I’d never thought I’d say that SOCKS look so good but here I am thinking that!

    1. blogilates says:

      Haha yay

  18. Alyssa says:

    These socks are so cool! I love the honeycomb pattern. With the invisible socks, do they fall down at all? That’s what I always worry about when I’m running or working out. It’s no fun pulling up your socks all the time lol.

    1. blogilates says:

      No they actually don’t! There’s a little rubbery thing at the ankle that holds them up.

  19. Cassie says:

    The city chic and dancing queen have to be my favorite outfits!! I generally don’t pay much attention to socks, but I never realized how important they are for health and fitness! These look so cute–thank you so much Cassey!

    1. blogilates says:

      Thank you!!

  20. ClaireG says:

    I have never heard of this company. Thanks for the info! It can be hard to find socks with the “invisitoe” feature. I have some socks with large seams, and they become really uncomfortable and scratchy when working out.

  21. Kasia says:

    I think I remember those wedges from Cardio Warmup!

    1. blogilates says:

      Yuppppp

  22. Hannah says:

    Where is the grey windbreaker from?

    1. blogilates says:

      It’s an old style from Lorna Jane

  23. Chantel says:

    I love these looks.

    1. blogilates says:

      So happy you like!!

  24. Firzanah Firdaus says:

    Beautiful pictures Cassey!! ❤️❤️❤️ & it’s so warming to know that BOMBAS had donated to the homeless!

    1. blogilates says:

      I think it’s so wonderful!!
