Do you ever find yourself wishing your gym clothes were a little more stylish? That’s exactly what NYC designer Stephanie Howard was thinking when she conceived her World Stretch line of workout pants. She and her mom, Sally, have designed a funky, fashionable collection of workout wear that’s both flattering and functional. As their mission statement says,
“We have discovered what seems to be a gaping hole in athletic wear. It is all high tech and no fashion. Our Mission here at World Stretch is to fill that hole with our superb Fashion Athletic Wear designs.”
Stephanie knows what it takes to create clothes that work in the gym because she’s a certified personal trainer. She uses high-tech stretch fabrics that wick moisture away from the body as you exercise. At the same time, her designs incorporate bright, colorful patterns that are so cute, you’ll find yourself wanting to go to the gym–if only to wear these great pants!
We tried out a pair of World Stretch pants from the “Super Black” line, which are black capri leggings with decorative splashes of color. (We tried the Kryptonite green variety.) We were a little hesitant at first because 1) it takes some guts to wear form-fitting capri leggings to the gym, and 2) we weren’t sure we could pull off the bright colors without feeling silly. All our fears were laid to rest, however, as soon as we put on those pants. They are sooo comfortable and extremely flattering. Best of all, no one in the gym had pants that looked like ours! We felt so trendy!
World Stretch pants definitely make working out more fun. If you’re looking to renew your motivation to get into the gym, a new outfit might be just the thing to do it for you. We suggest giving these whimsical athletic pants a try!
(If you’re a member of our 5th Ave. gym, you’ll see Stephanie this Thursday June 7 at the summer kick-off open house party. She’ll be there presenting a trunk show of her World Stretch pants.
