The UCF Recreation and Wellness Center might not be a fashion show, but that doesn’t mean your treadmill can’t be your runway.
In the fashion world, the term “sporty” doesn’t necessarily have the most fashionable association. It assembles sights of over-washed Soffe cheer shorts, a tried-and-true high school “Seniors Class of 20-Something” tee and not-so-chic baggy drawstring sweatpants, and it usually can be applied to the 9 a.m. class go-ers.
But thanks to the UCF Bookstore/Barnes & Noble College and UCFpromos.com, sporty is playing in a whole new court. No longer referring to the 1983 Jane-Fonda-leotard-hair-scrunchie workout attire of decades past, this season the trend got a modish and digitized fashionably active twist.

Offering a fashionable take on gym essentials, the bookstore’s new reversible pinnies are more stylish than your average lacrosse pinnie.

The pinnies come in women’s and unisex; one side is black with University of Central Florida written in gold while the flip side is gold with a black Knights logo, made by League and priced at $29.99. Adding a bit more flair, the women’s pinnie also comes in a reversible blue and green in addition to a pink and green.
