Meow! Sexy Leopard & Mesh Fitness Wear

The Skinny Confidential talks fitness wear.

Oh meow!!! This mesh top x these leopard leggings are a sassy AND fun combo, right?

Quite honestly, I get so bored with workout clothes so excuse me if I’m way too excited when something spicy comes along.

Lately I’ve been super into barre class & this get-up is literally PERFECT for barre.

I’ll do a whole post on my barre experience, but in the meantime just know that if you try barre it’s important to wear pants that are stretchy and comfortable…& well, these leopard ones are super stretchy and even though they’re print, they’re slimming.

As we all know sometimes print isn’t very slimming…so thank God for these leopard babies that suck it in ( big time!! ).

Anyway I’m huge fan of Carbon38’s workout clothes in general but I’m especially a huge fan of all the mesh they showcase ( remember this post? ).  I like how you can kind of see-through the material but it’s still sort of a mystery. Options to wear under mesh: a hot pink sports bra, a lace bandeau ( contrast is fun! ), a white sports bra, &/or little spaghetti strap.

Ultimately when I take a barre class I’m typically running errands afterwards, so this workout outfit is ideal for errand situc. I don’t look like I’m homeless AKA too lazy to change my scrubs after a workout. EVEN THOUGH THAT’S TOTALLY THE CASE. HA! I actually look pulled together in this baby.

What’s your favorite spicy workout outfit? Do tell.

Happy Tuesday! x Lauryn

SHOES : White Nikes

TOP: Carbon38 Mesh Top

PANTS: Carbon38 Leopard Leggings


  1. LOVE the mesh detail on the shoulders and on the back of the top. If I did not work at an office, I would seriously live in workout clothes. I firmly believe that investing in cute workout pieces can take you from the gym to errand to a casual lunch.

    This top and leggings are the perfect example of that.


  2. Love the post and your pix but can’t say I’m a fan of the flatlock seam in the crotch (rise seam). I don’t understand why most big brands use it. It’s like sayin’…..look down here. It’s like a gusset saying “Here’s the target”. Get rid of both gusset and front crotch flatlock seams and I’d be a lot happier.

  3. If my blog isn’t indication enough, I am a serious activewear connoisseur. I am loving Splits59’s new hand-painted raven capsule collection and their white viper print. I’ve also been obsessed with Alala lately, and I’m super excited to have a package from them coming my way right now! I haven’t seen you mention Alala on your site, but you should definitely check them out, I think their stuff might be right up your alley. 🙂

  4. Love this post! I love barre classes! You were actually the one that got me into taking Pure Barre 🙂 Here’s my latest:

  5. Have you seen the Koral Activewear line? OBSESSED. I am dying for the one piece, but a little scared of it. I think you could totally do it though!
