Autumn Athleisure Essentials

By Caroline Lucey

More than ever before, women are spending a significant portion of their week in activewear. Whether it's your favourite sports bra and tank combo for your weekly run, spin class or HIIT workout, or a pair of trainers, leggings and a jacket for weekend walks, brunch or shopping, never before has activewear played such an important part in our wardrobes. So, as the seasons begin to change, the average woman will edit her closet accordingly, and for those who value their active outfits as much as their fashion get up, this is the time to start investing in those key pieces to help you stay active in style through the cooler months.
 

To make it easy we've put together our Hot List of must-have items:

 
The Legging
For something full length to keep you warm, we suggest classic black but with a hint of mesh for style as well as breathability.
Alannah Legging, Nimble Activewear

The Shoe
Perfect for all types of training as well as everyday wear, the Slingride is sleek, supportive and ridiculously comfortable.
Speedform Slingride Shoe, Under Armour

 

The Bra
Can be worn to workout in, or under an oversized shirt or tee for sport luxe daytime styling; we love this simple Puma design
Forever Sports Bra, Puma

 
The Tank
Ideal for layering under your long sleeved running tops on cool evenings, or with a sports bra to stay cool during sweaty spin or yoga sessions. Add a little colour to brighten your look.
Essential Racer Tank, Adidas
 


The Jumper
Something that looks as warm and cosy as it feels on. Wear it pre and post workout, or for casual weekend style.
Simona Sweater, Bjorn Borg

 
The Jacket
Keep the rain and wind out with this stylish double zip jacket. Featuring a high collar and elasticated waist, you'll wear this day in, day out through the cold season.
