The new year is the perfect time to have a renewed focus on health and fitness and in 2016 I’m promising to do more to stay active. After a busy festive season and a holiday overseas, I am so excited to be back home to embark on a new exercise routine, and with the summer weather being so gorgeous it’s a great time to train outdoors. And what better motivation to exercise than some new workout gear? I’m making a few new additions to my fitness wardrobe at the moment and I am loving workout gear in neutrals, greys and lighter tones.
When choosing sports wear, I always use a checklist:
- Flattering: I always choose shapes and styles which accentuate my body and try to find styles which are feminine.
- Durable: If I purchase quality products, I find that not only are they comfortable and provide the right amount of support, investing in quality pieces also means they usually last a lot longer.
- Versatile: The best thing about active wear is that you can usually mix and match the items. I always shop knowing what pieces I already have and try to find items which will work with that look.

It’s important to have a pair of quality, well-fitting runners so if you can, make sure to get a proper fitting. I love these sneakers as they’re lightweight and the colour works easily with the rest of my workout wardrobe.
Stock up on some simple tees to rotate throughout the week. As always, you can’t go wrong with a classic white t-shirt.
Sometimes leggings are just too hot to wear during exercise, especially when it’s really warm outside so I like to have a pair of shorts in my exercise wardrobe.
SPORTS BRA: Bodyism
A great sports bra is so important for providing the right support during training. I love the fact that gone are the days of just plain black or white sports bras and they now come in a range of fun prints and colours.
LEGGINGS: Adidas by Stella McCartney
Of course I have a go-to pair of black leggings, but sometimes it’s nice to mix it up with a pair in a vibrant print or colour. Only Stella McCartney could elevate a pair of leggings into something quite stylish!
It’s important to have a great bag to carry around your workout essentials but think outside the box and opt for a striking backpack instead. It’s definitely easier to carry around and I find it’s great for when I’m heading to a workout from home or the office.
