The French term Apprécier means “to grow in value over time,” and a new lifestyle website of the same name, founded by InStyle Special Projects Editor Cindy Weber-Cleary and entrepreneur Stephanie Stahl, inspires women in their 40s, 50s and beyond, to do just that with their style. A mix of shopping tips, how-to advice, and pro secrets makes Apprécier an at-your-fingertips style guide.

We asked the fashion gurus of Apprecier to give us their Mother’s Day gift picks for chic and sporty moms who want to go from the gym through the rest of the day with cool casual style. With so many options to choose from these days, figuring out what to buy to fit your fitness and lifestyle routine can be overwhelming, but half the fun of working out is dressing for the occasion.
