Whist we’re still on the topic of celebrating the new year, we’ve decided to motivate you to go back to the gym in style. Not only is working out always a bit more fun when you get to show off your cool new leggings, but there’s also something seriously motivating when you spend a bit of your money on activewear to actually go out and get moving.
Don’t get us wrong here, we love going to the gym, but these active clothes can also be a great alternative for busy days doing errands or helping a friend on moving day! Activewear has undoubtedly become a fashion staple for all of us who like to be active and enjoy combining fashion with sports. Whether you’re looking to get back that bikini body on track for Summer or simply want to upgrade your basic sports clothes, here are the top 4 new (and not so new but stylish) brands we’re swearing by.
Alo Yoga is one of these activewear brands that dress you beyond your gym studios. They have cozy teddy coats to make sure you don’t catch a cold after your spinning class, trendy lace leggings to help you feel good on the treadmill, and longer style sweaters for your busy shopping days. Our editor Kira is actually a big fan of that brand, and their fancy collections help her stay active at any time of the day! Our favourite items? Don’t need to ask us twice, we’re obsessed with their old pink line of hoodies and jackets…
