Happy Monday everyone! It's time to play yet another thrilling round of Fashion Trends I Just Don't Get. This month's fashion WTF on the street?....the 80's workout outfit.

I've seen this Sporty Spice get-up on more than a handful of chicks lately and am confused...more confused than I was the first time I picked up a thighmaster. Two-tone sunglasses, bright torn sweatshirts, bike shorts and classic Keds wouldn't seem so out of place if I had eyed them sweating to the oldies on an elliptical at the gym or an episode of VH1's I Love the 80's, but out in the open at the movies, mall and brunch? I'm not feeling the burn.

Don't get me wrong, this trend might work out for you if you're under the age of twelve and/or have a slamming body...but for future reference, when you buy athletic clothing it might be a good idea to reserve them for athletic activities. Unless you want people to hear your body talk.

p.s. Accessorizing with cute bangles doesn't help. It just makes your outfit seem even more purposeful.
