When you workout every day, active wear can get as repetitive as your fitness regime. And there’s nothing like slogging it out on the treadmill in uninspiring get-up to kill the last remnants of your motivation. If you’re looking to update your workout wardrobe without breaking the bank, read on.
We’ve been dropping shoulders at sales and hunting through bargain bins to find you the best budget buys. Want to look luxe for less? Check out these sporty pieces.
1Nimble Lauren Long Tights (Dream)
Floral meets edgy in these whimsical tights from Nimble Activewear. A seamless, slip-on, slip-off design, you’ll find no zips and no fuss. The perfect update to the classic Lauren Long tight.
2Country Road Run Systems Breaker
Wind and water-proof, this versatile breaker from Country Road is a worthy addition to your workout wardrobe. Wear it on runs, to and from the gym or throw it on when you have no intention of getting sweaty – if you change your mind, it’s got you covered.
3lululemon In A Cinch Tank
Tops are often the hardest active wear piece to buy. Sleeves are irritating, straps fall off our shoulders, and breasts play peek-a-boo. So we opt for an old tank or tee that we can toss after a few months. The result? Dag. Enter: lululemon In A Cinch tank. It’s the perfect cut top that’s cinched in at the back to minimise bulk and movement during your workout.
4Cotton On Body Sport Mesh Caged Bralette
Cotton On Body’s latest collection, Olympic Fever, has us spoilt for choice of luxe for less items. We can’t go passed the Miss Mesh 7/8 tight, Strappy Crop, and of course the Sport Mesh Caged Bralette
5Running Bare The New Guard 3/4 Tight (Bambi)
Named after the beloved Disney character, Bambi, this 3/4 tight will have you running through woods in no time. We love the bespoke floral print and suck-me-in, high-rise waist band.
6Nike Pro Indy Cool Bra
With a V-neck silhouette and low racer back, the Nike Pro Indy Cool will sit discreetly under any sports top. Extremely comfortable, it provides low level support making it ideal for walking, weight training and yoga.
7Puma Faster Than You Shorts
Lightweight, soft and versatile, we love Puma’s Faster Than You shorts. With high-cut sides and a pull-on waistband they’re comfortable and flattering.
8New Balance Accelerate Tight
Chanel Gigi Hadid in the New Balance Accelerate tight. An update on the classic all-black, we love the pop of red.
