Hands up if losing weight/being more active/joining a gym/run a marathon is one of your New Year’s resolutions.
Well, it was one of mine last year (and this year too, of course) and I became a bit of a gym fanatic, but I was suddenly confronted with the sad truth: my gym wardrobe mostly consisted of leggings with holes in and awful should-never-be-seen-in-public T-shirts. Sure, in theory, it does the trick, but it didn’t really help in terms of getting me motivated to go out for a run or go to the gym. I started looking out for nice sportswear and I’m happy to report there’s plenty of amazing brands out there that needn’t cost the world and will get you looks for all the right reasons.
H&M and GAP have become some of my favourites for basics, Adidas by Stella McCartney for the wow-factor, and Liberty’s collaboration with Nike have become a permanent fixture on my feet, whether I’m working out or not. London-based designer Lucas Hugh has upped the ante completely and has turned functional sportswear into completely covetable pieces. This is my pick of the new generation of sportswear
