Gone are the days when activewear was something you’d simply sling on and sweat in, and it’s come a lot further than just being for pro-athletes or gym addicts. Now considered a style all of its own, it sits perfectly alongside others on the high street, making the transition from barbell to brunch as easy as can be.
As the fitness industry booms, the gap between fashion and activewear narrows, with more shops than ever having whole ranges devoted to the trend. So, how to stay up-to-date? Here’s the Spring Summer 2019 activewear trends you need to know about.
Last year’s activewear was all about looking and feeling great; this year brands are upping their offerings by considering performance gain too. With an upsurge in people wanting to track their progress, new collections from brands offer the latest performance innovations and promise to help to push you to the next level.
Embrace the seasons
Under Armour have released their RUSH collection, which promises to help you give that extra 1% to your workouts, while Nike took their Free Run to the next level in combining comfort and durability, and adidas re-booted their UltraBoost 19 shoe to make your runs smoother while still looking great.
With outdoor training becoming increasingly popular, epic challenges like running a marathon or long-distance cycling have become a must-do for many. However, even as summer approaches, we can’t get too ahead of ourselves and forget the UK’s unpredictable weather.
Fortunately, layering options are everywhere this season, ready to facilitate your diverse fitness choices and see you through those crucial training sessions; wear the same collections whatever the weather, and on the gym floor too.
With the summer on the way and the clouds (hopefully) shifting, it’s time to liven up our activewear wardrobes by adding some much-welcome some colour.
Freedom To Match
From Nike’s jazzy collaborations with inspiring artists, to the natural colourways showcased by do, expect to inject bright hues, awesome patterns and great shapes into your workout.
Freedom to wear what we want in the gym and not feel judged is fuelling a love for combination outfits, and this season it’s all about the tights with the matching sports bra.
Multi – living
For Spring Summer 2019, shapeless tops are out and the supportive crop is in, while high-waisted leggings are sure to make women feel great at any size. If you’re still not a dare-to-bare in a sports bra kind of soul, the matching mesh top and leggings from do are a top choice.
From adidas’ UB19 to Nike’s Epic React, there are whole collections designed for being shown-off on the streets and yet perfect for your workout. Heading for brunch in the latest Nike Tech Pack is the done thing, while wearing running trainers as sneakers is as cool as it is comfy.
