Get noticed at the gym not just for your toned figure, but for your fashion savviness.

Activewear has morphed from pure sportswear to stylish street-ready statement looks, with labels like Olympia and Lululemon, plus collaborations such as that between Adidas and Stella McCartney. Blending the best of form and function for the active urbanite, if you’re looking for workout pieces that are both flexible and sleek, here are some to consider.   

Adidas by Stella McCartney Yoga Seamless Tank Top

Made from flexible breathable material for maximum comfort and durability, this crewneck tank top with a racer-back silhouette is sheer athletic chic. It feels natural like second skin and has a colourblock ribbed structure in a select choice of shock blue or collegiate navy, so you can still amp up your style while working out.

Lululemon Speed Up Short

Lululemon reimagines the short shorts of active wear with a sporty twist and practical features. Lycra fibre provides shape retention whilst a low-rise cut gives it excellent aeration. Multiple waistband pockets including a zippered rear one store your essentials. You’ll be spoiled with 7 distinct colour choices from a cheery lilac quartz to a more reserved smoked mulberry.

Vie Active Teresa Short Sleeve Tee

This simple yet elegant tee takes sportswear to a new level of luxe with its use of fine merino blend fabric. Lightweight with a rolled sleeve hem and loose fit design, this top is suited for any kind of activity, vigorous or otherwise, and yet still be chic enough to spend an entire day in. With its heather charcoal shade, you’ll look cool doing so too.

Olympia Alix Cotton Pant

These pure cotton harem pant in bone white with black side stripes and JET drawstring closures are your flexible go-to exercise pants with a minimalistic flair. Aside from its Zen appeal, the baggy midsection gives it plenty of stretch ideal for your yoga and pilates sessions or just to lounge around the house in. Either way, you’ll love its relaxed feel.

Huntrlnd Leo Tights

These subtly funky tights feature full black-on-black leopard print with incorporated nylon mesh insert panels for enhanced ventilation. Its design includes reflector strips for the safety of nocturnal joggers, while the polyamide composition keeps it internally cool and sweat-minimising, so it’ll endure whatever lengths you push yourself to.
