How to amp up your activewear game
Posted on July 31 2017
We get it – life can be hectic, especially when you’re running from pillar to post every day. Maybe you’re juggling the school run with training for that epic mountain run. Or perhaps your daily commute starts with a spin class followed by back-to-back breakfast meetings.
One thing you shouldn’t have to worry about is your clothing. That’s why we’ve created a series of stellar activewear items to get you working out and looking fit without style falling by the wayside.
All it takes are a few carefully crafted styling tricks to get that sportsluxe street style down pat.
Skinny Jeans Meets Gym Leggings? Yes, please!
If we could live in leggings for the rest of time, we would. Honestly, is there any item of clothing as comfortable out there? Actually, yes there is! With fit and comfort in mind, we’ve created a range of wear-anywhere leggings specifically designed for active mums on the go. Our ACAI black trousers mimic the look of skinny jeans while being super lightweight and high performance to boot. Best of all, they’ve been designed using breathable, water-repellent fabric with innovative four-way stretch. Simply put: you won’t want to take these off…. and why should you? Flit easily from the school run to the trail run and back again. No sweat!
The Devil is in the Details
This look has downtown cool written all over it… no wonder it’s a favourite among gym-loving celebrities. Why not make like Gigi and Gisele and incorporate an intricately-laced strappy sports bra into your ensemble? We can’t think of a better way to show off your hard-earned shape. Supercharge the urban cool factor by layering a longer-length loose-fitting vest over it Fame-style. Slip into a pair of easy loafers or little grey booties and you’ve got an outfit ideal for a morning at the shops or a catch-up brunch with friends.
Just because you’re done sweating in a cardio class doesn’t mean you need to cover up with a boring track top. Switch things up by slipping into something sleeker, like a trendy blouse to layer over your sports bra. By leaving a sexy sliver of skin across your belly, you strike the perfect balance between chic and cheeky. Throw on an edgy little moto leather number or a satin bomber jacket, and you’re well on your way to effortless athleisure style. The trick is not to over think your outfits. Invest in classic separates that can be mixed and matched into different combinations. Soon you’ll have created an interchangeable workout uniform that’s as versatile as it is functional.
Accessorize Like a Pro
Let’s face it – if you want to stand out among the regular mums who run, you’re going to need to amp up your activewear game. Enter: cool-girl accessories. We’re talking edgy, fashion trainers, luxe faux-leather carry-all bag and metallic mirror sunglasses. To carry off this look, we suggest you keep the rest of your outfit monochrome and simple. Sleek leggings and a fitted tank top, all in sexy and luxurious, head-to-toe black creates a chic persona to die (or, in this case, sweat) for.
