Some of us may be like Taylor Swift. We work out in private and suddenly emerge from our burpee bubble polished and dressed in feminine sets, lace-up heels, and carrying a top-handle bag in lieu of an old, sweaty-clothes-filled tote. But, then there are others who take a different, more visible approach to workout gear. See: Rihanna.
While we can't assume that RiRi was coming straight from a cardio class last night as she hit the town in NYC, her clothes might suggest otherwise. The singer wore what appeared to be gym shorts (or boxers, or at the very least, slouchy Bermudas) and a sports bra for her night out. Had she paired it with sneakers, the ensemble may have been a bit too casual and kickboxing-class-ready for evening hours. But, with a sleek, strappy heel and a killer shade of deep-maroon lipstick, the undone look is totally rad. And, so much more comfortable than a "going-out" dress you'll fidget in all night long. Although, who's to say what's comfy for Rihanna — remember, she has no qualms wearing little more than sparkles.
In honor of embracing that signature fearlessness, we lined up a few similar Bermuda shorts ahead. Bra tops, though, are completely your call.
