I never really understood why anyone liked "designer" activewear until I started going to the gym regularly about a month ago. After I caught the exercise bug, I immediately went out to try and find some cute workout duds to encourage the new habit and prevent me from sweating on every black tank top in my closet. What I found was...uninspiring. If I see one more cutesy workout top with a contrast paisley print on it, I'm gonna barf all over the place. Now, an Adidas by Stella McCartney Gym Bag? That's something I can get behind.
Adidas and Stella McCartney have been releasing seasonal collaborations for a couple of years now, and this is the first time I've ever felt the urge to buy anything from the line, let alone the entire line. Leopard print gym bag? Yes please. Speckled workout tights? I'll take those, too. Just give me all of it so that I may never contemplate a Lululemon purchase ever, ever again. The best part of this line, of course, is that it's not much pricier than those boutique workout collections. Below, the best bags from the bang-up line.
