Who says it’s just for exercising?

WORDS BY HEATHER GWYTHER

Being active is important. Everyone knows this. And come January like clockwork many of us will sign up for Barre and HIIT, or embrace the brisk outdoors and endeavour to achieve the golden ticket of 10,000 steps. But let’s be honest, often, we’d much rather be doing something else entirely. Prowling, partying and pontificating are all viable options. But what are we supposed to do with all the activewear we invested in when we did want to exercise and now, well, do not? Wear it, of course. Here’s how to make your activewear work for you (for a change).

FOR PERKY LAYERING

Whether you wear it after a swim in the sea or to make winter runs considerably cosier, this Year Of Ours hoodie is the perfect accompaniment to exercise – and life, for that matter. We find that it perks up an all-black look instantly and, simultaneously, pairing it with black makes it less saccharine. Life is all about balance, isn’t it?

FOR GOING OUT OUT 

Attention-seeking in this pink metallic Heroine Sport sports bra at your reformer pilates class is one thing, but where it really deserves to shine is during a completely different kind of exercise: dancing in a club surrounded by (fully vaccinated) people. Sweat stands no chance against its moisture-wicking magic, either. But you might want to check your makeup.

FOR SLEEK MONOCHROME

Perhaps you have days where colour feels too much and entirely black feels far too miserable. Either way, monochrome is always an option if you can’t decide what to wear and wish to remain relatively chic. Keep a monochrome outfit sleek by opting for the Spiritual Gangster white cropped tank that you’d usually reserve for yoga, alongside kitten heel mules and high waisted black trousers.

FOR A DEGREE OF MODESTY 

Sheer dresses are all well and good – particularly on holiday – but, being quite literally see-through, they require a certain amount of consideration to be worn without complete confidence, and the real conundrum is actually what you’re going to wear beneath. Underwear is not ideal and leggings would be uncomfortable in sweltering heat. The solution? Hotpants – these black Spiritual Gangster hotpants to be precise. What’s more, whip the dress off and you also have perfectly decent sunbathing attire. Or, paired with a sports bra, you’d be all set for some exercise - but that’s only if you want to.
