Is Your Workout Wardrobe Ready for Fall? See What's in Style & Win a $100 in Fitness Apparel!




I love Fall (especially here in New York City) but it always comes a bit too early. Save yourself from goosebumps and an itchy-sore throat by dressing more appropriately for the inevitable temperature drop. Put your summer stuff away for next year and check out these Fall trends that you can easily plug into your fitness wardrobe. And that's not all...I'm giving away a $100 gift card to Bodywear Boutique so that you can shop for a new fall workout outfit and say goodbye to summer in style!

* Long Board Shorts *

They've graced the runway from Gryphon to Diane Von Furstenberg's shows and now it's time to wear them where the make the most sense-- in the water and at the gym! From a functional standpoint, surfer shorts are lightweight and dry fast. I absolutely love the late summer vibe they exude which is a nice way to transition into Fall--just pair with a long sleeve moisture-wicking top or rashguard. I know board shorts seem odd worn indoors, but I say DO IT! Who says splashes can't be made out of water?

* Open Back Pullover Tops *

It's all about the BACK this fall, and activewear designers are determined to help you show it off. This season you can find a range of back-revealing styles but my favorites are pictured below because they layer beautifully with a sports bra. All 3 styles have a peek-a-boo quality to them and the less they match your sports bra, the better! Pullovers are great for outdoor workouts and chilly gyms. I like to wear mine for the first 15 minutes of my yoga practice until I heat up. They're also quite sexy to walk around in post-workout. The ivory colored Calvin Klein pullover from Bodywear Boutique is irresistible.

* Leather Gym Baggage *

Autumn and leather go hand in hand, which means your canvas and nylon gym bags have to go! This season it's all about soft, white leather. It's neutral enough to match your fitness attire but will stand out against the sea of black bags at the gym. Designate a bag like the one below strictly for the gym and leave your high-maintenance glam bag (i.e. YSL, Minkoff, Chanel) at home. Designer purses at the gym are so last year. A leather duffel--vintage or new--will give you an effortless edge that many will envy. I'd rock this duffel with Cargo Capris, a colorful workout tank, a pair of retro-style Puma sneaks and a denim jacket. Done and done!

* Tough Rubber & Glass *

Water bottles typically aren't cool. The stainless steel ones are bulky and their screw tops are annoying. Plus, don't you hate that metal taste they give your water? Ick! This Fall, Takeya is my saving grace because they spare me from buying Poland Spring bottles and feeling like a planet trasher. They're top of the line water bottles that work as hard as you do at the gym. Tough, stylish and they don't break when dropped. The perfect accessory, if you ask me.

Mizzfit, I'm going to have to go with the Avani Tie Bottom Organic Cotton Legging for the win.


anonymous September 21st, 2011 2:25AM

I'm going to guess the Alo Yoga Cargo Capri - super cute and you can wear them while running errands and still look cute. I absolutely love open back shirts and the cool water bottles that your show above.

Cool giveaway! Keep up the great work.


anonymous September 21st, 2011 2:26AM

Me again - for some reason my name came up as anonymous and my fingers were too fast for me spelling my name at the end - LOL - it's Monica.


Amy Horvath September 21st, 2011 4:13AM

My best guess would be Planet Body Drawstring Capri with Knee Pocket. So cute.. Also since red is the color of the season (so says the runway...) I would also personally buy the Bia Brazil "Double Stripe" Capri in Black and Red! Love the cute clothes!

MizzFIT September 21st, 2011 7:02AM

Hi Monica,

Thanks for sharing your guess! I'll reveal the answer in about 2 weeks! Thanks for reading MizzFIT!


MizzFIT September 21st, 2011 7:03AM

Hi Amy!

Yes, red does seem to be the color this season. We sure did see it on the Emmy's Red Carpet, didn't we? So glad you liked what you saw on Bodywear Boutique's site. I'll reveal the giveaway winner in about 2 weeks :)


MizzFIT September 21st, 2011 7:46AM

Hi Suzan,

Great guess...the suspense is mounting! Thanks for playing and I'll post the winner soon enough.


Tamara P. September 21st, 2011 8:00AM

I'm guessing it's the Alo Yoga Cargo Capri, which could be worn as "streetwear" or to hit the gym.

Evanice C. September 21st, 2011 9:04AM

Yogi Kangaroo Pocket Tee - Super cute and very practical !!!

Evanice C. September 21st, 2011 9:08AM

ooops - I guess I did not read the question - sorry - But the Tee is still cute !

MizzFIT September 21st, 2011 12:33PM

Hey there Evanice,

You can still guess a capri style, it's OK! I realize you made a mistake!



MizzFIT September 21st, 2011 12:36PM


Super cute capri's! We shall see...


Jenifer Wright September 22nd, 2011 7:06PM

Gotta be the Alo Yoga Cargo Capri!! Soooo cute! Love, love, love! :)

Lizz C September 23rd, 2011 7:14AM

Hi!!! I'm going to guess the Public Myth Paradise City Crop since it's the first once I clicked on.. well bc it's cute! :D Hope I win

MizzFIT September 23rd, 2011 4:59PM

Hi Jenifer,

Thanks for your guess. Stay tuned!


MizzFIT September 23rd, 2011 5:00PM

Hi Lizz,

You're so cute! Thanks for guessing. Can't wait to pick a winner!


Ashley H September 27th, 2011 6:27AM

I'll guess the Alo Yoga cargo capri.

Marianne September 30th, 2011 2:23AM

I think its the Ion Actif Fitted Jean Active Capri. These would be sooo cute with a white tee and accessories before/after your workout! Reminds me of jeggings!

MizzFIT September 30th, 2011 4:16AM


And who doesn't love jeggings? I think I own at least 10 pairs of jeggings. Thanks for guessing and I can't wait to reveal the mystery capri!


Karen campbell October 7th, 2011 7:58AM

I am going with the Bia Brazil Faux Pocket Workout Capris! Sweet site, thanks!

MizzFIT October 10th, 2011 5:20PM
