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.
