back to blog

Activewear is no longer confined to just the gym, whether you’re heading out on the school run, quickly popping out or grabbing a coffee with the girls, performancewear is now an acceptable outfit choice for casual everyday wear – and we are LIVING for it.

What’s better than popping on your comfiest pair of leggings, throwing on an oversized sweatshirt with a smart coat, and rounding off with your trainers and STILL looking stylish? It literally couldn’t be easier to embrace the trend wherever or whatever you’re doing.  And, it gets even better… we’ve done all the hard work for you by rounding up the key pieces you need to invest in and how to style them. Easy peasy!

Black Leggings

Black leggings are the ultimate essential. The foundation of the athleisure trend and critical to your activewear collection, invest in a pair that mix comfort with style.

Opt for a pair that offer all the supportive elements such as deep control waistbands and squat proof fabrics, whilst tapping into trends with mesh inserts and the latest prints.

Easy Overhead Sweatshirt

Perfectly paired with your trusty black leggings, go for styles with bold slogan prints or varsity-inspired stripes and embrace the season’s latest trends, or go for a classic zip through style and keep it simple.

Running in the gym or running errands, supportive crop tops will keep everything in place.

  Ideal for layering underneath your activewear or wearing alone, find crop tops made from stretch fabrics for the perfect fit and finishing in a variety of lively prints and patterns.

Cycling Shorts

Who’d have thought cycling shorts would be a style we willingly wanted to wear every day? But as an alternative to leggings, they are fast becoming a new favourite.

Nail daytime dressing with peplum style sweaters and complete with leather-look jackets and studded accessories.

On a round-up:

  • Fuse plus size fashion and function into one. Choose performance fabrics that support your shape and provide comfort, whilst remaining stylish with trend-led details and prints.
  • Invest in pieces you can mix and match. Mix up your matching sets and pair with all your separates. Choose versatile styles in neutral colour palettes for easy mixing and matching too!
  • Think about where you are going. How you’re dressing in a sweaty workout to how you’re going to pick the kids up is going to be slightly different. Swap crop tops for loose and floaty performance tees and you’re good to go!
  • Accessories are key. This is where you nail the athleisure trend, from oversized coats, big sunglasses and alternative trainers to your gym pair, these are the pieces that will take the look up a gear.
