What's trendy for the gym?

Q:I’m not a runner, but I plan to step up my walking, and get to the gym more this year. Any new footwear I should check out?

A: "Even 20 minutes per day of brisk walking has been shown to give our metabolisms a kick in the ol’ jogging pants. Footlocker has new womens and mens footwear geared to cross training and walking – and replacing your old sneakers with a new pair is one of the best things you can do to get on track." – Catherine Dunwoody, Style Expert

Best Dressed For Less - H&M

"When a store like H&M has a sale, the deals are ridiculous! I put together this fabulous mens look for just $75. The faux fur hunter cap tops off this nordic toggle cardigan perfectly, especially when layered over a t-shirt and cargo pants. Cozy-cool, and just right for this chilly weather."

Best Dressed For Less - Gap

"Wide leg pants for under $20? Get this entire look from Gap for just $104, including this tweedy Chanel-inspired jacket, romantic blouse, and these classic black trousers. All pieces that are timeless, but never boring. Love 'em."

Very well priced at $149.50, and available at Tip Top Tailors. Santa baby indeed….”
