We’re all about doing things in style – and that’s not just limited to workwear.
Whether we’re dashing to the yoga studio or getting our powerlifter on in the gym, it helps to have the right outfit to complement a good sweat sesh.
Especially now that the ‘athleisure’ trend is officially here to stay, it’s not hard to find activewear that’s fashionable and functional. And forget about expensive international shipping fees – we’re all about supporting homegrown brands.
Here are 6 styles we’re coveting for fall 2016.
lululemon Marbled Mix Speed Wunder Tight, $138
Marble print has been huge for a while, so we’re excited that it has finally found its way to our go-to style of workout pant: leggings. This style courtesy of OG fitness brand lululemon is supposed to feel like a second skin, complete with reflective details and waistband pocket to stash your stuff.
Lolë Barbara Jacket, $168
This jacket is the perfect piece for those days when you start off chilly but end up sweltering by noon. The easy-breezy draped front gives off an effortless vibe, but the military-inspired details make it perfectly on-trend for fall.
Michi Matrix Bustier, $230
Clearly this is not your basic workout top, but we’re totally digging its “business in the front, dominatrix in the back” vibe. Will wearing this top whip you into shape? Probably not, but at least you’ll look good trying.
Titika Breeze Bra, $48
This strappy bra courtesy of Titika is the stuff minimalist dreams are made of, and the burgundy colour has us falling for autumn. Pair this with a flowing tank that shows off the back or a pumpkin spice latte with extra whip. We won’t judge.
KarmaLuxe Mercedes Short, $82
Admittedly, bike shorts are not the sexiest kind of exercise gear. However, the mesh panels on this pair from Karma Athletics pulls double duty: they keep you cool (literally) and look cute. Plus, the longer length means you don’t have to worry about these bad boys riding up while you crush that class.
Public Myth Empire Sports Bra, $69
With semi-sheer mesh panels in the front and the back, this ‘peak-a-boob’ sports bra is certainly not for the shy. While we can’t recommend it high impact workouts – lest you want to risk a wardrobe malfunction – we think this would be perfect for yoga, pilates, or even just a night on the town.
