As someone who strives to exercise most days of the week, I’m loving the fact that many of my favourite brands are releasing exercise lines. The new kid on the block is Camilla. While the brand is known for its beautiful, colourful kaftans, their new athleisure range is the perfect combination of vibrant prints and comfy silhouettes, and this pairing is already a fave.
One thing I can’t get enough of right now are bike pants. Who would’ve thought they’d make such a triumphant comeback! While a solid colour is practical, I love the fact the mosaic print used on these shorts ups the vibrancy and gives them a little more personality. Great workout gear is always a big motivator and these shorts are sure to be in high rotation. This vintage look t-shirt and sweatshirt is reminiscent of Princess Diana’s iconic gym looks, which is right on trend! I love how the crisp white plays against the bright blue of the shorts, allowing the colour to pop.
While this combination works well, the true test is how comfy it actually is and I can attest to the fact that I could do a big workout in this outfit. But the best bit is it translates well to going out to pick up a coffee or grab breakfast afterwards, so it definitely ticks the style and substance box.

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.
