the Real Girl’s Guide to ac­tivewear

Jan­uary = gym time, but your kit can go way fur­ther than the tread­mill. Here’s how to work it…


oc­ca­sion: date night sport: bal­let

Fem­i­nin­ity is key. Whip out your best tulle skirt but pair with a biker jacket and edgy clutch to avoid look­ing like you’re in fancy dress – or an ex­tra from The Nutcracker who’s lost her way.

oc­ca­sion: shop­ping sport: cross­fit

Ba­si­cally what you’d wear to ev­ery sin­gle gym ses­sion but with a fash­ion twist. Think slouchy jog­gers, Stan Smiths and a satin bomber. You’ll look ef­fort­less, su­per­cool and, most im­por­tantly, you’ll be the com­fi­est you’ve pos­si­bly ever been.

oc­ca­sion: girls’ night out sport: 100m sprint

Paired with leg-length­en­ing strides and killer heels, a body­suit is a very flat­ter­ing al­ter­na­tive to your party frock. Plus this black buy from PLT comes with ruch­ing de­tail, which, as we all know, is any girl’s se­cret weapon.

oc­ca­sion: work sport: cricket

Make a chunky cricket knit the fo­cal point of your out­fit for a twist on prep­pie pol­ish. Off­set with a bright pleated midi skirt, Gucci-in­spired loafers and a crisp white shirt. Your of­fice won’t know what’s hit it.
