A survival guide to looking effortlessly chic in your activewear
As women (and men) of the modern day, we manage to compile so many elements into one day. From the 6 am workout, kids drop off, work, pick up, cooking to cleaning - it’s not often we have the time to outfit change for each occasion! Here are some hot tips about how to be effortlessly chic in your activewear whilst being comfortable enough to tackle what the day throws at you.
We know managing the household in the mornings are tough, especially if you have kids, making the trivial task of what to wear to the gym more difficult than ever. To start, throw on a basic tank such as the Upside Muscle Tank. This tank is a best seller for us and is so because of its signature logo and soft 100% cotton material. The Muscle tank has low armholes which allows for maximum mobility perfect for training or reaching for that morning coffee.
Secondly, you can never go wrong with a pair of activewear tights. As our top half is basic, and doesn’t have any colour, a star piece to your effortlessly active ensemble is the Vie Active Rockell tights in Navy Leopard Ombre. These leggings have a spandex material in them which gives the body a slimming silhouette that is sure to keep you looking and feeling amazing. If colour isn’t your thing, or winter isn’t inspiring any creative flare, a safe yet stylish option is the Varley Slauson Tight in Black. These tights are made from Varley’s signature four way stretch fabric that keeps you looking and feeling cool. With a pocket on the hip, Varley offer the comfort of a yoga pant with the look and versatility that a jean provides.
Once your top and bottom is sorted, throw on a jumper for warmth either wrapped loosely around your shoulders, or pop on a statement jacket for that edge. We have been loving our new arrival Jaggad Akuro Sweat in white for the perfect pull over jumper that offers style and comfort. This jumper is a perfect gym essential to usher you to and from the gym with warmth but also looks great styled with a pair of denim jeans, Superga’s and sunnies.
For those who are looking for a jacket to complete to morning rush to grab a coffee in between working out and the rest of your day, the Pilot puffer in black is cult classic. The puffer jacket started trending with models such as the Hadids and the Jenners and has shown no sign of slowing down any time soon. As well as being perfect for a statement jacket for activewear you can also follow in the footsteps of the Hadid’s and pair it with a leather pant and heels for grungy daywear. The Pilot puffer jacket is made of premium waterproof fabric with a 90% down/10% feather inner, keeping you as toasty as that long mac from your favourite café on those chilly winter mornings.
Finally, to complete the desired look for coffee shop chic, adding an accessory will help to lift your whole look. It can be as simple as finishing it off with a cap or some sunglasses - we’re currently loving the New Era caps or Quay’s Strange Love Sunglasses in Brown with its frosted champagne frames and smoke lenses. But if there’s one accessory that takes your outfit from 0 to 100 - it’s having great skin. When your skin and health is good you feel confident, and when you’re confident, you can rock anything!
