It’s amazing to think just how far activewear has come over the last few years. Remember when heading to the gym meant finding an old tee and a simple pair of leggings? These days the clothes available for working out are seriously fashion forward. This probably explains why activewear often sneaks its way into our casual wardrobe and is worn out and about and as far away from a treadmill as possible! From designer threads to old sports favourites such as Nike and Adidas there are so many on stylish options that you’ll be jumping aboard the athleisure trend in no time.

Check out some of my top picks for updating your activewear wardrobe below:


Printed shorts

These bright shorts are ideal for a major sweat session.

Black tights

You can never go wrong with a pair of classic black tights. Love the tie finish on this pair.

Cut-out top

Think beyond the humble tee. There’s plenty of great workout tops these days with interesting finishes.

Pastel jacket

Elevate your workout topper to this pastel bomber. The best bit is it’s so chic that it can easily make its way into your regular wardrobe.


Whether you’re after a pair of sneakers that are bright, all-black, white or with a simple colour accent such as this pair, the humble trainer has well and truly become a fashion staple.

Patterned sports bra

The boring ol’ sports bra is a thing of the past. There are so many interesting prints available these days you’ll find it difficult to choose one.

Printed backpack

Who needs a plain bag? Carry all your gym gear in style in this stylish Stella McCartney for Adidas backpack.

2-in-1 top

Clever design means that you can often find sportswear with built-in sports bras to make dressing for a workout a cinch.

Statement leggings

Venture into adventurous territory and try out a pair of statement leggings. The bolder the print the better!

Matching set

You can’t go past a cute matching sports bra and leggings set for the ultimate in chic workout gear.
