Sport Luxe

I have built up quite a reputation amongst my friends for wearing sportswear (*cough* leggings) as my daily uniform. I have no misunderstanding that leggings are pretty much form-fitting tracksuit pants, in fact there is a debate about whether they can even be counted as pants, but I love them. I’m a pretty active person so being comfortable and (hopefully) presentable is my goal most days. I definitely don’t get it right most of the time.

Thankfully in recent years the design of sportswear has become a lot more fashion-orientated, making the integration of sportswear items into daily life a lot less cringe-worthy. So with that in mind, I’ve rounded up some items that I think hit the spot in terms of wearability, comfort and fashion.

Uniqlo is a great band for staple wardrobe items. Their Spring 2015 collection is a good example of sophisticated activewear.

Oysho Gymwear Studio’s Spring 2015 collection is ballet-inspired so I am sold.

Outdoor Voices is a brand that “take(s) it as a given that activewear must perform, but we see it as a virtue that our clothing also looks good and fits well”. That is a philosophy I can definitely get behind.

Ok this one is a bit of a cheat, because it is definitely only for swimwear and not regular wear. But I thought it was too nice not to mention. Cynthia Rowley’s latest surf and swim collection is both flattering and functional. Her wetsuit designs are clean and beautiful, something that is rather uncommon with this type of clothing. Take a look.
