Pilates Class to Lunch Date in Style
Q. How can I go from Pilates class to a lunch date in style?
A. Skip the Lycra and bulky hoodies and opt for figure-hugging casual pants, body-skimming jackets, and sheer tops in luxurious fabrics like cashmere, silk, or jersey. We love layers of soft long-sleeved tees in bright shades like fuchsia (pictured at right) or cobalt. "Weekend clothing should be functional, but also fashionable," says Bobbie Thomas, host of Style Network's Fashion Police. The key is in the silhouette: Streamlined and flattering is the look you're after. For weekend pants, we're loading up on Juicy Couture's striped tracksuits in cashmere (top and bottom, $298 each; at select Bloomingdale's stores) and Adidas by Stella McCartney button-cuff pants ($150; shopadidas.com).
