- Activewear is totally acceptable to be be seen in right now and I kinda love it. More and more brands are making stunning luxury designer activewear and I have been wearing two different brands lately which has changed my whole outlook. I spend a lot of time at bootcamp, which is another word for rolling yourself about in the mud. I love bootcamping but I tend to buy my clothes for bootcamp in cheap sports shops like Sports Direct. I have been feeling super daggy in my sports kit lately, everything is mud and grass stained, ripped at the cuffs and tinged with a dank smell…sexy huh? Well, things are slowly changing and I am adding more lush items to my kit, which in turn makes me feel a whole lot better about myself.
UNDER ARMOUR X MISTY COPELAND
This collection is part of the Misty Copeland (ballerina) and Under Armour collaboration so style and flexibility are key aspects of the garments. Iam not one to wear a teeny crop top and leggings but this outfit is the perfect alternative. You can have you midriff on show but the leggings are high waisted and the top isn’t actually that short so you feel quite covered up and only showing the slimmest part of your tummy. I won’t be wearing the top half as much as the leggings but even after only them for a month I have worn them non stop. The fabric is elasticated and sucks your legs in the perfect amount. The fabric is quite thick so perfect for the imminent wintery weather.
Monreal, as seen recently on Kate Middleton is new to me and I am already in love. The fabric is the right amount elasticated and super soft to touch I love the waist band, which is really elegant, check them out here as I didn’t photograph that part. The biggest draw to me with these leggings is the incredible reflective patches dotted around in a aesthetically pleasing way. I am a keen runner and after work I will have to run at dusk. I tried the kit out at dusk last week and the reflective patches worked incredibly well making me feel a lot safer running along the street.
What do you think? Would you spend a little bit more on your activewear to feel better about yourself?
