BarreWear

I am super proud of myself. I have taken seven barre classes and am loving every minute of it. Each class is different and challenges me in a different way. I feel my core getting stronger and that strength is resonating through the rest of my muscles. It’s super convenient for me to stop by Pure Barre San Rafael on my way home from work at least four times per week.

But even with feeling proud that I am sticking with these barre classes, I’m not 100% on my game mainly because I have a limited closet when it comes to workout/gym clothes. Sure, I have a couple pairs of comfy yoga pants and some baggy tees that I bought from Target ages ago, but I see people in my barre classes in cute pants and tops and I have to admit – I get a bit jealous of their barre style.

I’ve been posting barre related photos on my personal Instagram account and last night a clothing account called Life By Lexie followed me. Not knowing who this company is, I of course tapped on the profile and fell in love with the posts. Life by Lexie is a site full of barre and yoga related tops and sticky socks! Another cute site that Veronica shared with me yesterday is called BarreSocks. They don’t just sell socks, but tanks, tees and sweatshirts related to barre.

Here are some of my favorite barre related clothing finds:

These are just some of my favorite. Target has a great variety of graphic tanks that’d be really cute in a barre class, too.

I’m always looking for cute barre class gear, so let me know if I missed your favorite brand!

Pop Physique Releases Capsule Collection

My favorite go-to workout class, Pop Physique, has expanded their clothing options from just graphic tees and tanks to now include a signature capsule collection of workout clothing.

Pop Collection1

From left: The Pop Sweatshirt ($68), The Pop Sports Bra ($42), The Pop Varsity Tee ($52)

This first capsule collection, “designed in LA with New York in mind,” contains 7 items that “tells the authentic story of the modern woman.” I really like the fact that they’ve kept it very chic and streamlined – mostly all black, with pops of blush and beige. The addition of mesh panels in several of the pieces gives the collection an edgy, urban vibe.

Pop Collection2

Pop Physique has been gaining in popularity (counting such celebrity clients as Trina Turk, Selena Gomez, Kat Von D and Diane Kruger), so it’s a natural progression to now include workout apparel that can be worn to class (SoulCycle comes to mind as another class that has done this successfully).

If you haven’t tried Pop Physique before I highly recommend it! It’s a one hour ballet barre-based class that utilizes the principles of dance to create long, lean lines and tight, compact muscles. I took Pop classes religiously for the 6 months leading up to my wedding and had fantastic results.

What do you think of their capsule collection? Would you purchase any of these pieces?
