EX­OTIC PRINTS

Health & Fitness - - Back to the Gym -

Eye-catch­ing prints that make you think of far­away places will be fu­elling your gym ses­sions this autumn. Made for cool-weather work­outs, flo­ral prints take a dark turn in dusky red hues and deep rain­for­est greens. Team these pieces with sim­ple black and white num­bers

1. Lorna Jane Ama­zo­nian Bra (£55; lor­na­jane.co.uk) With a print that re­minds you of trop­i­cal jun­gles, this max­i­mum-sup­port bra will keep you feel­ing com­fort­able through high-im­pact work­outs. It comes with a cute strappy back that you won’t want to cover up.

2. Bou­davida Spirit Crop Zoom Leg­gings (£72; bou­davida.com) These leaf-print leg­gings will keep you cool dur­ing hot ses­sions. The mesh pan­els and cut-out de­tails per­fectly blend func­tion and fash­ion for a fit­ness fix that will feel good while you sweat. Buy them from Septem­ber 23.

3. Body­ism I Am Rosy Leg­gings (£135; body­ism.com) In­spired by wild blooms, this flo­ral print con­trasts against block black to cre­ate the il­lu­sion of longer and leaner legs. Clever stuff. We adore the match­ing I Am Rosy tank top, with its flo­ral hem (£90).

4. Lu­cas Hugh Hum­ming­bird Leg­gings (£95; lu­cashugh.com) Avail­able in black and red, these AW17 leg­gings are made from a tech­ni­cal knit that boasts com­pres­sion fit and breath­able, sweat-wick­ing prop­er­ties. Great for floor ex­er­cises such as yoga, there are no zips or seams to chafe you.

5. Chilly’s Trop­i­cal Edi­tion Bot­tle in

Pineap­ple (£25; chillys­bot­tles.com) Stylish water bot­tles are the ul­ti­mate arm candy for gym-go­ers. Why not match yours to your out­fit? We love this lim­ited edi­tion steel bot­tle.

6. Sapopa Poppy Bra (£117; Sel­fridges) Ital­ian ath­leisure brand Sapopa comes in an on-trend colour pal­ette of muted hues. We love this laser-cut bra for sim­ple yet ef­fec­tive gym style. Team with the Agilita Leg­gings with Skirt (£153).

7. Sau­cony Free­dom Iso in Berry/White (£139.99; Sau­cony.co.uk) Not only are these train­ers right on trend, but they’ll also sup­port your body through any gym ac­tiv­ity – weightlift­ing, run­ning, oh and they'll look good in the café, too.

8. Roxy Shadow Swell Back­pack (£39.99; ur­bansurfer.co.uk). Hit the gym, of­fice or cof­fee shop with this dual-print sports bag, which com­bines two of this sea­son’s hottest prints – mono­chrome and trop­i­cal. n
