When you’re after a pop of colour to finish a strong, monochrome look, don the Panopoly Jacket from New York label, VPL. It’s cropped and slim fitting with ¾ sleeves and sporty mesh detailing, the ultimate tailored tracksuit taking you seamlessly from workout to work.
When motivation strikes and weather won’t deter you from your morning run, The Upside Ash Jacket has you covered (literally). Cut to flow with a wide hip circumference, it provides breathability during your workout but will keep you warm when you’re done with the option of the draw cord. Plus, the sleeves are made from double-knit to keep heat in your arms and help lose it from the chest, the epitome of functionality in fitness fashion.
Every workout wardrobe needs a bold, printed jacket to add flair to your everyday tights. Try this fun, tropical update to a staple bomber. With the classic ribbed cuffs, hem and neckline it has all our favourite details of the traditional design with a sporty-chic twist to spruce up your active wear outfit.
When it comes to choosing a coat to complete your winter workout ensemble we can’t go passed the Witchery Windsor Parka. Quilted, long and lined with faux fur, it’ll keep you toasty when zipped and trendy when open.
Make a statement with the Adidas Shell Tile Windbreaker. Made from 100% shiny nylon with royal blue side panels and finished with the signature Trefoil, it’s a stylish, sleek update of the classic athletic track top. Longer at the back, it’s flattering paired with tights and has a stowaway hood for versatility.
Every winter requires a live-in-it hoodie that’s cosy and stylish (read: acceptable to wear with your Disney pyjamas AND outside the house). This season, we’re never taking off the Nike Tech Fleece Mesh Cocoon which has all the comfy details – elongated silhouette, cotton blend fabric and nifty thumb holes – but doesn’t skimp on functionality with an optional mesh back panel for ventilation.
Channel Gigi Hadid and pair your fitness tights and crop with the drill trench coat by bassike. A clean, minimal update on the classic military-inspired trench, with a touch of detail in the form of a detachable back strap, it’s a wardrobe staple that’s guaranteed to become an everyday essential.
