Workout Fashion For Summer 2013



Now that summer is just around the corner, you might be thinking about revamping your workout wardrobe if you’re going to be spending a lot of time up in the gym working on your fitness. Your workout gear needs to be the perfect mix of effective and easy-on-the-eye.  Here are our favorite low and high budget options.

Primark t-shirts and vests

There’s no need to spend upwards of £10 on a simple workout vest. Budget fashion brands like Primark make a huge array of colorful and fashionable workout vests and t-shirts available to the gym bunny on a budget, which you can mix and match on top of your shorts or leggings and sports bra combo (whatever your needs!) You can go for a vest if allowing your skin to breathe is important, or a long-sleeved top if you wish to cover your arms.

Speedo Women’s Dive Turbodive Leaderback

Made with unique Endurance fabric, this cool swimsuit comes in a fun ‘galaxy’ print – which makes it ideal for fitness swimming and looking cool at the same time. Like most Speedo suits, the low cutout at the back makes the design look modern and trendy, whilst the high front means you don’t have to worry about any in-pool wardrobe malfunctions.

Lululemon running pants

This US-based yoga and running brand make some of the best cropped running leggings. We like the classic design in the pastel lemon color. Made from the highest quality fabric, these stretchy running leggings return to their factory shape so that they last for a decent amount of time. They’re not cheap but they’re definitely a good investment for the future if you plan to incorporate running as your main form of cardio.

Nike Free running shoes

Good running form and injury avoidance start with good quality footwear. Nike remains at the head of the pack with its wafer-light soles, breathable fabrics, and gorgeous designs. Invest in a pair of Nike Free running shoes and they will see you through the running season ahead. We like the bright neon yellow-green colorway. If you’re going to go neon, you might as well go big! As well as making you super visible when you’re road running, these are on-trend enough to be worn as streetwear.

When you’ve put in a couple of months sweat with your new fitness regime, it might be time to treat yourself when you’re ready to step out in something a little more black-tie than your workout gear!
