Statistics have shown that you’re roughly 99% more likely to bump into your ex, your crush and/or that smug girl from work when you’re looking your absolute worst.

Okay, we lied, There are no statistics, but it’s totally true!

We’ve all been there. You’re hot and sweaty after a serious gym session (not in a good away) and upon leaving you bump into the man of your dreams.

You’d love to stop and chat, hell you’d love to invite him over. If only you weren’t a) wearing absolutely no makeup and b) in those dodgy yoga pants that are kind of really, really faded at the ass.

Fear not #fitfam. It isn’t all doom and gloom. Behold, our top five tips for leaving the gym without looking like a hot mess.

Over-compensate with oversize
Turn your exercise look urban, á la Rita Ora, and void a super-sweat by looking super-slick. We are totally digging this vintage looking sweater.

Not only will these sunnies help to hide your post-workout sweat face, they are also essential for any aprés-gym creeping you may wish to do. Pursue your crush like a pro and look damn good while doing it.
