Whilst we’re on the topic of fitness fashion, I am a big fan of the British acitve-wear brand, Sweaty Betty, and often find myself scooping-up entire training outfits there when I was just planning on an innocent browse. I’ve always been particularly taken by their ‘yoga’ range, because the clothes are so incredibly relaxed, the fit is flattering and the materials are usually super comfy – great for either lounging around or being active. Also, their ‘workout wear’ (which I’m wearing in these photos, shot for a Facebook banner) is very functional too, with summery, fun bright colours & prints that aren’t too garish to actually wear! Its a feminine-looking range of clothes, with technical materials that I think justifies their slightly premium price-point.
I know new outfits can encourage me to go to the gym if I’m lacking motivation to train; it’s not a catwalk but you are allowed to look and feel good at the gym, plus dedicated training gear can often be designed to enhance your performance (e.g. oxygenating / breathable / moisture-wicking fabrics etc.) – though that’s also just a good excuse to go shopping

PANTS: I’m wearing the ‘Adrenaline Ombre Run Capri‘ 3/4 pant. The underwater-inspired print is made of Polyester Polybutylene and is super-tight, stretchy, lightweight and pretty comfy. The only downside with this material is that it’s not completely opaque when stretched, which can get a bit risqué to say the least! so I recommend getting a larger size so the material doesn’t stretch too much becoming too ‘invisible’. Detailing includes reflectives at the knee for visibility, an elastic waistband and a functional back zip pocket.
TOP: The ‘Finish Line L/S Run Top‘ is long-sleeved with their trademark thumb-eyelets, figure-hugging, but comfortably breathable, with gorgeous scrunchy, girly details.
VEST: This is a pretty classic ‘Athletic workout Vest’ (in what they call ‘electric lime’), and the material is something called Meryl which has a soft feel to it. It’s lightweight, stretchy and I especially like the length of the top – it’s a bit longer so you can pull it down if you want to cover up a bit.
