Gym Class

Get on the fast track: These snazzy shoulder bags will leave your tired old duffel in the dust.


Tired of that ratty gym bag you've lugged around since your college days? Check out the new batch of retro-chic styles. They're hip enough to bring to work and sure to brighten up your routine.

Best known for its sturdy watches, Fossil also turns out a durable, compact gym bag ($34) with a handy cell-phone pocket. For a seriously fifties look -- and a bit more space -- check out the Hummel bag ($44 at Stackhouse). Want something to go with your mega-trendy striped Adidas sweats? The company sells a roomy black-and-white tote to match ($30). Our favorite bag of all? Puma's ($45) cool blue one. It's large enough to stash an extra sweatshirt and has a hidden pocket underneath for optimal storage capacity.
