Add extra motivation to your gym routine with these fashion-forward fitness pieces....
If you’re in need of a little motivation for all those spinning and Barre classes, there’s only one thing for it: stylish sportswear. Lucky for us, there’s plenty of inspiration around when it comes to Insta-worthy outfits (because if it didn’t go on the ‘gram, did it even happen?), and with Net-A-Porter seeing a massive 97% hike in searches for sports gear on its site last year, now’s the time to gear up.
If you’re planning on workout out regularly (or simply grabbing a latte in your cool new leggings), it really is worth investing in high quality gear, that won’t stretch or become see-through after a few washes.
And if you’re unsure of how to style the street trend, the no one does off-duty quite like the supermodels. Look to Gigi and Bella Hadid, Stella Maxwell and the Jenners for a few pointers. For AW19, don’t be afraid to layer with a big puffa jacket for ultimate comfort, and don’t forget those chunky boots or trainers.
As ever with streetwear, there are plenty of 90s vibes around, thanks to crop tops, branded joggers and retro trainers, and if you can wear the same colour from head-to-toe, extra sartorial points for you. Neon is making a big comeback this season, so make sure you inject a bit of colour in your outfit, and statement leggings are perfect if you’re going for that LA look.
It’s all about layering too, which is perfect for winter, so make sure you wear a crossover knitted cardigan (Katie Holmes eat your heart out) over a pastel crop top for yoga, while a camo long-sleeved stretch top is great if you’re pounding the pavement.
The key is to have an outfit that will take you from workout to lunch without bothering without having to change, because it’s just too damn on point. That said, it does need to do the job at the gym too.
It’s all well and good looking stylish, but if you don’t have lightweight, breathable fabrics, then they’ll you’ll get overheated and sweaty in no time. Lucky for you, both dedicated and high street sportswear brand have got you covered with the latest technologies. Whether you’re doing yoga, spinning, pilates, HIIT or barre, there are plenty of stylish pieces that will keep you cool while you workout.
