Getting motivated to squeeze in a workout is hard enough—now throw in looking cute as well. We caught up with Fabletics Chief Stylist Ginger Ressler to provide a heavy dose of #fitspo just in time for our sale launching on today at 12pm ET. She’s sharing her favorite tips to ensure you look gym-to-chic—without any wardrobe changes required.

Style Tip No.1: Plan Ahead: “An easy way to look pulled together after working out is packing transitional pieces into your gym bag,” shares Ressler. “Plan ahead the night before by laying out your workout look to see what can transition throughout your day. Pair our ‘Ramla’ vest over a printed workout tank—one a little longer in length—to allow a bit of the pattern peek out of the vest.”

Style Tip No. 2: Play with Patterns: “Using patterns and pops of color to streamline your look can help you create an easy post-workout grocery run outfit,” says Ressler. “Chose a patterned sports bra, like the ‘Doon’ sports bra in mosaic print, and coordinate it with a bottom that uses the same print, like the zipper leggings. Wear a neutral workout tank, like the ‘Oula’ tank in dark grey, for the gym but swap out the tank for the ‘Scoop’ tee, which is just sheer enough to show off the print.”

Style Tip No. 3: “The great thing about the athleisure trend is that you can often take your leggings from the gym to the office by adding a few key pieces,” shares Ressler.“The ‘Salar’ leggings in raspberry Taos print can be dressed up with a great black tee, a black boyfriend blazer, and pumps. [For fall] add a long black coat and booties.”

Pretty Perfect: Laura Mercier’s #Flawless Beauty Rules

Screen Shot 2015-07-30 at 6.03.49 PM
Beauty editors (and aficionados) agree, that when it comes to cult-beauty brands, Laura Mercier tops the list. Her can’t-live-without products emphasize enhancing your natural beauty—not covering it up. “Laura’s inspiration for her palettes come from many sources such as fashion trends, runway shows, etc. but the consistent theme throughout is that the palette colors have to complement one another,” shares Benjamin Ruiz, Director of Global Creative Artistry for Laura Mercier.“She’s removed the guess work and paired the perfect shades together.”

Now, you can shop the A-list makeup brand’s coveted cosmetics today at 12 EST on Gilt; plus, pick up a few expert rules from Benjamin Ruiz. And at up to 65% off, we promise you’ll be tempted to overhaul your (entire) beauty routine!

Rule #1 Make It Effortless: “Keep the skin looking fresh and natural by selecting a foundation that complements your skin tone and provides the correct amount of coverage you desire,” explains Ruiz.  “My favorite combination is Laura Mercier’s Primer Radiance used with Tinted Moisturizer. Next, decide on your priority—maybe it will be your eyes or brows, perhaps bold colorful lips, or flushed cheeks. [Whichever you choose] let that be your focus. This way, you’ll achieve your most effortless look.”

Rule #2 Purchase Duplicates: “ The realization that you forgot to pack your favorite brushes and tools when you’re traveling or about to touch up makeup at work is one of the worst feelings!” shares Ruiz. “I [personally] have multiple brushes of the same kind and I recommend that everyone at least have a travel set for this reason. Laura’s travel brushes are ideal because she designed them to be portable as well as essential.”

Rule #3 Don’t Overdo It: “Lip color is extremely personal and depends on the desired look,” explains Ruiz. “If you want to go subtle, try selecting a shade closet to your own lip color or at the most, a shade or two darker. The wonderful thing about Laura’s Lip Glaces is that they’re sheer and allow a ‘color shy’ person the ability to experiment with fun colors!”
