S/O to Gym Class:
Activewear is making a furious come back this season and Christ on a crutch, are we excited. So we’d like to shout out to our gym class heroes in teeny bopper movies over the years. Now let’s face it, the 70’s might very well be the golden girl mother of P.E. fashion. High-waisted track shorts paired with some regular tees and striped knee socks (alternatively we like thigh highs), giving you body-ody-ody and mile high legs. Remember, if you can see the rounds of your cheeks peeking out from your shorts, you’re doing it right. Here we have Carrie and those bad bullying mean girls, also from 1979, we have P.J. Soles and an outfit I have on hand for any occasion, the bodysuit and the the high-waisted white gym short. God bless. As we run right through the 80’s (because we assume everyone owns a spandex bodysuit and sweatbands for Olivia Newton-John-esque workouts), we come to the 90’s and here’s where gymnasium fashion gets wild. From Buffy the Vampire Slayer (movie), we’ve got bright bra tops and the emergence of the bike short in crazy prints matched with leggings and high ponies. And who could ever forget Clueless, the black and white babies of Beverly Hills yesteryear, remember, layering is key and bike shorts make your ass look fan-fucking-tastic. Accessories are a must in the 90’s and your socks must always match your outfit and come mid thigh, if you’re going to wear socks. Hair-wise high pigtails, and oooh, braids braids braids. As we come to the early 2000’s we meet with the meanest girls of them all, The Plastics. Now gym class in this generation wasn’t as high fashion, but baby tees, booty shorts and trainers in coordinating monochrome palettes just seem so right. Hair amazing and relaxed, and lip gloss is a must. You can’t be Queen Bee if you can’t look good when you saunter out of the locker room. Remember your icons of the past, children.
