What is athleisure wear?
January is the season to kick back and relax in the warmth or head outside and get more active. With our fantastic athleisure range, you can do both in comfort and style. But first things first, what exactly is athleisure wear?
It’s a great mix of super comfy leisure wear combined with the sporty look of active wear. It offers all the benefits of really well designed technical clothing as well as being cosy, relaxing and loose fitting. Better still, it’s also 100% flattering.
Lounge wear so perfect, you can unwind and recharge
We’ve picked out some athleisure essentials to get you started. Indoors and outdoors, we’ve got you covered. Leisure or jogging trousers are ideal to lounge around at home, with an elasticated waist and front pockets they’re just right to kick back and relax. Snuggling up is easy in the soft cream cowl neck sweatshirt for total comfort. Or it’s a great extra layer to pop on when you’re heading out for a wander in the chilly sunshine.
Getting active is a great way to get out and socialise as well as improving your fitness levels. Stretching and lengthening of limbs is what yoga and pilates are all about and you can take it at your own pace. These leggings will stretch with you and the comfy tee carries the floral detail perfectly. A breathable weatherproof parka designed to complement the look is also a good choice when you’re taking your exercise outdoors.
Lounging at home
When you’re taking a breather it’s lovely to put your feet up and relax in style. Loose fitting, vibrant coloured tie front t-shirts in luscious Citrus bring a splash of colour to dowdy days. An effortless essential which is easy care and such a versatile piece. Co-ordinate this gorgeous leisure wear with bright printed leggings for a sporty feel.
Walking the dog or taking a stroll?
Any way to be more active is a good way. A brisk walk for 30 minutes is one of the easiest ways to shed extra pounds, strengthen the heart and muscles plus it’s free. We have some great fleeces to keep you warm while enjoying the sunshine and chatting with a friend on the way. And if a walk’s too far, half an hour spent washing the car gets the blood flowing, helps you enjoy the fresh air and ticks another job off the list. With some comfy leisure trousers to bend and stretch in they’re also perfect to relax on the sofa once the job’s done.
Whether you’re stepping up your healthy eating after the festive splurge, getting out and about for walks or trying a new exercise like yoga or pilates, having the right gear makes all the difference to your motivation. Check out our full athleisure range and treat yourself to some great looking comfort.
