The festive period is over and the time to overindulge in rich foods and endless prosecco has come to an abrupt end. Instead, we’re left feeling sleepy, bloated and a little bit lethargic. It’s time to kick those sluggish feelings to the curb and get our physical selves back in check.

Whether you’re planning on hitting the gym, starting an early morning running routine or taking on a new fitness class, it’s probably time to update your athleisure wardrobe. Wearing comfortable and stylish sportswear can really boost your confidence when taking on a new sporting activity, so we’ve compiled five fitness looks to inspire you and your wardrobe.

 

Look 1: Monochrome
Keep things simple with a classic black and white ensemble. The darker the colours the better, as stains won’t show up as quickly. If you’re worried about sweat stains showing through, try and avoid grey materials as these show moisture the most.

Look 2: Pretty Pastels
With spring on the horizon, why not brighten up your workout with some seasonal shades? We’re seeing lots of pastel pinks coming through into SS18 fashion.
