Stella McCartney & Adidas Inspire Us To At Least LOOK Athletic

Exercise is important. Very important. But sometimes, we skip the cycling and just let people believe we did all the work, while we sneak off for a mani. The secret to our ruse: the Stella Mcartney and Adidas collaborations that have changed the way we look at workout gear for the past few years. Mixing the British designer's luxe sensibility with the athletic brand's functionality, the spring '13 line particularly steps up our activegear game.
The current designs gives our hoodies a high-fashion boost, blending sheer fabrics and floral patterns into our otherwise plain-spandex workout clothes. Plus, when mixed together in an artful lookbook that seems to leap off the computer screen, we have no problem incorporating a few treadmill-ready pieces into our everyday ensembles. And hey, if that means everyone else believes we look miraculously chic and pulled-together for having "been at the gym for the past few hours," well, who are we to correct them? Jump — or saunter — ahead for all the spring '13 looks available at Adidas now.
