Elements of Lindsey’s Outfit
1. Printed Athletic Pants
Lindsey’s printed Nike pants caught my eye immediately. Black and white is a great go-to color combination to spice up any workout outfit, and it goes with absolutely any top and shoe combo.
2. JMU Camelbak
Staying hydrated is important, especially during the hot weather months! College Camelbak water bottles can usually be seen all over most campuses and here Lindsey is showing her school spirit with her JMU one.
3. Nike Trainers
These shoes are so simple, yet the perfect addition to Lindsey’s outfit; black shoes go with everything. These would be just as great for the gym as they would for an athleisure outfit.
