After every intense workout, I can always count on the presence of wet hair in my face, bright red cheeks, and sweat stains across my favorite activewear top. If I’m extra lucky, sometimes there’s even a smear or two of jet-black “waterproof” mascara around my eyes. It’s a #lewk and I’ve come to accept it. But then there are times when I need to pull myself together after a workout and I cant just embrace the sweat. For those occasions, I’m thankful that Victoria Beckham has discovered a formula that should take me from hot mess to haute mess in double-quick time.
Beckham is famous for making even the simplest pieces look like high-fashion. I’m hardly surprised that she has a three-step rule that helps her avoid looking like a sweaty mess after the gym. “A baseball cap—definitely—because after a workout, the hair can look questionable,” she said at a Reebok event on Wednesday. “Also, a good pair of sunglasses and an oversized men’s tailored coat over the top of your workout clothes. There you go—you just made yourself look very chic.”
A baseball cap and sunglasses? I can definitely do that. Plus, it’ll save me a whole lot of money on sweat-soaking dry shampoo. And when my fiancé questions me about the sudden disappearance of all his nice coats, I’m sure he’ll understand. Posh made me do it.
