While exercise in our twenties used to be rather punitive, these days we prefer to choose a workout that makes us feel good. For Hannah, that means a yoga session or swim in the pool, for me, it’s lifting weights or booking into my favourite boxing class. But it isn’t just what we do that needs to feel good, it’s what we wear while we’re doing it.
For us, there’s nothing more motivating than new activewear – especially new activewear in vibrant colours and feel-good prints. So, from leopard print leggings to floral sports bras, we’ve rounded up the workout wear that’s guaranteed to induce serious endorphins before you’ve even broken a sweat (and will work perfectly for post-class coffee or brunch too).
Made from recycled polyester, Nobody’s Child’s debut activewear collection is packed with the dreamy prints the brand is famous for. This floral combo is top of our wish list.
M&S’s best-selling Good Move range is one of the best activewear collections on the high street. This season, the silhouettes are sleek and the prints chic – case in point this snake tee.
These two-tone leggings are the perfect way to ease out of your go-to black leggings and embrace a little colour.
You know those wet, gloomy days when you really don’t want to run? This divine bubblegum pink jacket will give you all the get-up-and-go you need.
With their phone pocket (game-changer) and floral print, these leggings are pretty and practical.
You can’t beat H&M for affordable activewear that performs well. Part of the Conscious collection, this super-soft seamless set also comes in a gorgeous lilac shade.
No-one does prints like Sweaty Betty, and the squiggly “Love to Move” is their latest. We’d wear the leggings with a black sweatshirt on lazy weekends.
Hot pink activewear: clearly a 2022 trend. These are from Adidas’ “Hyperglam” range, designed to “inspire you to move your body and stretch your imagination”.
We both have these leggings and can confirm that they are both seriously comfy and squat-proof. And they’re leopard print – enough said.
Soft but supportive, this Reebok bra is way too nice to hide under a workout top.
Boden’s activewear is every bit as smile-inducing as it’s mainline. Even better, this set is a total bargain in the sale.
Made with sustainable fibres, this strappy racer back vest is like wearable Vitamin D. It’d look bloody gorgeous with these leopard print leggings.
This set is making us want to book a holiday more than a gym class, but we’re here for it.
With it’s ruched front and floral print, this one’s almost too pretty to work out in.
With stellar sustainability credentials and inclusive sizing, Girlfriend offers top tier activwear. We’re obsessed with this lilac shade.
You’ll never want to wear a basic black sports bra again.
