The best activewear to style beyond the gym
By Daniël Geldenhuys
Your Januworry financial shituation is probably not the best New Year resolution motivator. Quite the contrary. Take your 2019 fitness goals for example: you're probably well aware of the way a great new piece of activewear can breathe new life into your workout. But a girl's got to eat, so when it comes to purchasing new activewear you need a slightly better excuse than 'this will put me in a better headspace to meet my fitness goals.' Look no further than this roundup of the best active pieces that can be styled far beyond the gym. That's double the wear, double the value, and so, half the price. Mathmatical!
Buy a pair of workout leggings in an unexpected colour. Anything that's not black, white, navy, or grey should do the trick. They'll stand out during your workout, and you can wear them layered under a casual printed dress for a look that's very Balenciaga. Add some futuristic sunnies and it's a lewk!
The modest top
Modest activewear can be hard to find. Enter this crew neck tee from Adidas, cut boxy and long enough to cover the booty. It also pairs with just about every pair of jeans ever, giving them a clean, sporty edge. You can even layer it under dungarees for a perfect balance between active and casual.
The (not so) casual tee
If you're living for the gather detail on this tee, then wear it for a workout and a night out. Paired with the right statement mini skirt and a killer pair of heels, this tee is ready for a night on the dance floor. After all, the club is a workout all its own.
The track shorts
Comfort is king with Kappa's peach Banda shorts. Casual as they may be, they can certainly be smart-styled. Go masculine with an oversized shirt, or feminine with a slick bodysuit.
After your workout, just add trousers and you're good to go anywhere. If that happens to be the pool, Umbro's bodysuit transitions from activewear to swimwear. It really is a bodysuit suitable for every occasion.
