"Be that girl that gets told time and time again, omg I love your leggings!"

I'm not going to lie, I am obsessed with activewear and I mean literally obsessed!

It's so true that having a great activewear wardrobe inspires and motivates you to achieve your fitness goals... in fact nothing motivates me more.  There's just something about a great fitting pair of leggings, bright trainers or a trendy sports bra that makes you want to work up a sweat.

Whilst most people like to blend in at the gym, I find it the perfect time to stand out and feel confident (you've got to own it right?) and with athleisure being a huge trend that looks set to stay, there are so many brands to choose from.

With an extensive and ever growing activewear wardrobe, I get asked a lot "where did you get your leggings?" or people saying to me "I love your outfit", so I thought I'd share with you my top activewear brands that will make you look and feel the part whilst working out.

1. NIKE 
Now this is probably the most obvious brand, but they just get it right!  The activewear they offer is edgy, fun and most importantly functional yet stylish.
Out of all the brands they are probably one of the more expensive, but their products last and that's why I like them.  They are my go to for leggings especially as there are so many bright prints to choose from and most importantly they're not see through.... I mean we've all been there squatting away only to realise the whole gym can see your ass!!!
My top pick leggings from Nike would be the Legendary Tight Fit; with the high waist they create a flattering fit.

2. H&M 
This high street retailer have really stepped up their activewear range lately and their Victory range is right up my street as it's simple yet stylish with a hint of sport luxe.
Their matching sports bra and leggings sets look great paired with a dropped armhole vest or if you're brave enough to bare then on their own.  With a selection of solid colours and seasonal prints you can still be on trend at just a fraction of the price of Lululemon, Sweaty Betty etc.

This is a Swedish brand that I discovered about a year ago and although their range isn't extensive, their products are far from being dull - in fact if you want to stand out this is the perfect brand for you as the colours used in their eye-catching prints are happy, bright and playful.  Their leggings are a great fit and do wonders for your bum, plus their sports bras are stylish yet comfortable which is a bonus.  If you're looking for activewear that is different from everyone else in the gym then this is your go to brand.

4. FOREVER 21 
Forever 21 definitely doesn't disappoint in the activewear department and what's more is their range is affordable, with tops starting from £5 and leggings from £11.  They have so many variations of leggings and their tops are a little more interesting than your basic vest which means you can take your gym outfit to brunch with the girls.

Now that I've shared with you my top activewear brands, HAPPY SHOPPING!

  1. Love this post, really into the sports luxe look at the moment.
    I'm doing project on the athleisure trend for uni (I'm a fashion student in Edinburgh) and have accidentally-on-purpose become OBSESSED with lululemon legging!
