Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - GET INTO IT -

Pos­i­tive Vibes

Own­ing your sporty- chic pieces in pub­lic means wear­ing them with con­fi­dence and a fierce at­ti­tude. Be body-pos­i­tive and love the skin you’re in!

Neu­tral Ter­ri­tory

A monochro­matic pal­ette makes ac­tivewear su­per­ver­sa­tile – and black = luxe, so wear black or neu­tral-coloured leg­gings and take it from there. El­e­vate the look with a bomber worn over a sports bra – or try a leather or denim jacket.

Accessories Agenda

Don’t feel re­stricted: you’re not ac­tu­ally head­ing to the gym. Accessories are the game- changer – so work it with a chic hand­bag, sun­nies and state­ment ear­rings.

Fancy Foot­work

Sneak­ers are a com­mon go-to – but that doesn’t mean you can’t ex­per­i­ment with stilet­tos or even com­bat boots. In fact, Joan Smalls paired com­bat boots with high-rise tights – and we’re so grate­ful for that un­ex­pected style state­ment.

Dou­ble Trou­ble

You’ll get max wear out of pieces that com­bine func­tion with fash­ion. For ex­am­ple, high­waisted com­pres­sion tights will draw sweat away from skin and keep you cool – and lat­ter your booty on the dance loor. Lucky for you, there are plenty of mul­ti­taskers out there!
