From Sweat to Style

It’s easy to figure out what to wear to a workout, but for fitness trainers, dressing for life outside the gym can be a little tougher. Raquel Greer Gordian, founder of Greer Image Consulting, visits the wardrobes of three Austin trainers to put together fashion-forward looks for their lifestyles.
WHAT TO WEAR TO A...NETWORKING EVENT
As owner of The Barre Code Austin, Cami Kirschner is ambitious and savvy, which is apparent in her style. For this look, I pulled out her knee-high boots to accentuate her power and presence. The key to a great outfit is knowing when there’s too much or too little, so I finished the look with a few clean and simple pieces. The blazer, tee, and jeans play into Cami’s straightforward personality, while being effortlessly professional.
WHAT TO WEAR TO...DATE NIGHT
Brittany Collinge is a nurse who takes her fun-loving attitude to teach at Wanderlust Yoga. For her outfit, I enhanced the colors and textures of her balayage waves through the leather, suede, and stretch cotton in her outfit. The no-frills shape of her moto allows her to fit in a downtown setting, while the caramel color makes her warm and approachable for date night. Accessories are key for any outfit, so I tripled her necklaces to accentuate her playful personality while also adding romantic, feminine detail.
WHAT TO WEAR...OUT ON THE TOWN
Flor Beckmann is a Nike Master Trainer by trade and Texas girl at heart, so for an evening out, I combined her edgy style with Western details. The double-buckle belt is a vintage-inspired piece, and I updated it with her cream leather vest. Mixing metals is a simple way to make a neutral outfit more energetic, so I popped her silver buckles with gold-trimmed black booties.
