There was a time when sportswear meant dull, drab and extremely unflattering – the kind of thing you’d throw on, dart out the door and pray not to bump into anyone you knew in. Thanks to the increasing amount of time we’re spending working out, sportswear options are better than they’ve ever been.
1. VETEMENTS X JUICY COUTURE
Just look at the Vetements x Juicy Couture collection that stormed its way into Paris Fashion Week AW16. If a tracksuit is further than you’re willing to go in the name of exercise though, Juicy Couture’s Performance range, could be just the ticket! With body tailoring designs and in a range of bright, floral tones, you’ll never have a fear of gymwear again!
2. KATE SPADE NEW YORK ACTIVEWEAR
If the gymwear selection in your wardrobe leaves much to be desired, never fear, kate spade new york activewear has got you covered. Now available from the Bicester Village kate spade new york boutique, the collection combines bold colours with comfortable, flexible body-shaping materials such as Supplex and Lycra, to suit composed yogis and treadmill junkies alike!
3. SALVATORE FERRAGAMO ANIMAL PRINT TRAINERS
Trainers are one item in the wardrobe that will never go out of style. With so many options to choose from, make sure your next pair of kicks tick the boxes for offering style, comfort and durability. These Salvatore Ferragamo Lisel suede and leopard-print trainers will bring out your inner wild child!
4. STYLISH BACKPACKS AND GYM BAGS
This season, we’re swapping handbags for rucksacks. Perfect for everything from midweek commutes to weekends away, the trusty rucksack is often underrated. Keep your gym kit packed up with backpacks from Furla and Bally and multifunction gym bag from Cath Kidston. With handy side pockets for all those easily-lost garments, it’s soon to become your closet staple!
5. MARNI x ZALANDO COLLABORATION
If you love a shoe collaboration as much as us, you couldn’t do much better than the MARNI x Zalando range. Alongside Zalando, Marni have redesigned a selection of footwear styles from Reebok, Dr. Martens, Timberland and Vans. The collaboration takes on the classic styles from each brand and injects them with a modern, monochrome twist.
