Shop the look: Active Wear

18th January, 2016

 

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.

RUNNERS: Nike

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.

TOP: THEORY+

Stock up on some simple tees to rotate throughout the week. As always, you can’t go wrong with a classic white t-shirt.

SHORTS: Nike

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!

BACKPACK: LeSportsac

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.
