Designer Kelley Dooley believes fashion can be functional—even in the gym. “When I was training for a marathon, I couldn’t find anything cute to wear,” she said. “That’s when I realized I could fill that void myself.”
Dooley launched BodyRock Sport, a glitzy line of workout spandex and swimsuits, to accommodate desires of fitness fashionistas everywhere. (Bonus: The Kardashians love ‘em!) Hate tan lines from armbands? This adorable sports bra has a built-in iPod pocket. Gym duds looking drab? These shorts will add some pizzazz to your plyometrics.
Last week, I met up with Dooley and fitness guru Amanda Russel for an intense Pilates-based workout in Central Park. Even in 90-degree heat, the ladies looked fabulous sweating in silver studded bras and tanks. I was more than inspired to try out my new Zip ‘Em Up top in hot yoga!
