Ask Belle: Workout Bags
Dec 9, 2014
I recently started working at a company that has an on-site gym. I generally workout in the mornings before work, however that means I need to shower there. I am in the market for a stylish workout bag that is office appropriate but will also hold my clothes for the day, plus shower/makeup accessories. I am trying to keep a price range of less than $100. Is there anything you can suggest for this?
Thank you, Jessica T.
While I don’t think many people would judge you over a gym bag, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. You should look for something simple with some size to it. Here are a few suggestions:
This Sole Society travel satchel, in my opinion is the perfect gym bag. It can hold all the essentials, and the separate pocket below is perfect for dirty gym clothes, a wet towel, or your shoes. Sole Society also makes a large weekender in oxblood, black, or tan that could work well. And their braided leather oversized satchel is another excellent choice; I love the charcoal grey.
Prefer a fabric bag? This striped gym bag from Athleta is a good casual, but not too casual bag.
