Best Workout Socks + How I Style Them
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
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?
