“You know when you have a workout at [6 p.m.] and have to go to the club at 10? This is it,” Bretman Rock asked on his Instagram last April after he tried on a Nike tank top that looked like a dress on him. The top literally reached to his thighs and he just cinched his waist with a belt, wore heels, and put on a blonde wig—ready to go out and party.
Activewear and athleisure items are proven to be versatile when it comes to sporting them from casual days to late-night gatherings. We’re going to focus on the latter because sometimes we don’t have the time to go back home and change into our party get-up. So here are the pieces you can cop and customize for your next night out.
Under Armour Women’s UA Perpetual Bra
Let’s start with a classic black sports bra. You can simply wear a cardigan or a printed polo over it, and change into jeans. You’re good to go! This one from Under Armour comes with breathable pads for extra comfort and support. So you can move freely all night. Available at Greenbelt 3.
Victoria’s Secret Incredible Ultra Light by Victoria Sport Bra
If you want a more colorful sports bra-turned-bralette, opt for this peach one from Victoria Sport. It’s described to have a “second-skin fit” to make it easier to move in, and also adjustable straps. You can pair this with a dark blazer or a breezy cover-up. Available at SM Megamall.
Adidas Long Sleeve Crop Top
This is a ribbed crewneck and designed with Adidas’ tri-stripe on the sleeves. You can wear this over your sports bra after working out and pair this with jeans and heels. No one would know that you spent an hour in a boxing class. Available at Glorietta 2.
H&M Short Sports Tights
In case you haven’t seen our cycling shorts video, we showed there how you can wear it on a night out. You can go for a neutral-colored one or black, or go with a fun color combo like this one from H&M. It’s black with pink on the waist band, and you can wear an oversized shirt over it for a comfy feel. If you want to show some skin, feel free to wear a bralette. Available at SM Makati.
Nike Women’s Tailwind Running Tank Top
This tank top is made of translucent fabric and has wide arm holes. You can wear a cute bralette underneath if you think your sports bra isn’t party-worthy. Plus, it’s pretty breezy to wear, especially if you’re going to dance the night away at a crowded bar. Available at Power Plant Mall.
Puma Evo Aikido Pant
If, by any chance, you practice aikido and have somewhere to go, you can wear these pants straight to your night out. It’s wide-legged and comes in a neutral color. The best part is you can wear any top with this, and you can go with either sneakers or heels with this one. Available on Zalora PH.
