We know that a new pair of workout leggings can be all the motivation we need to get back to the gym after a long break. But honestly, workout clothing is just so comfy that if we could, we’d wear it all day. In fact, we are all for it! With our five tips for wearing activewear as streetwear, you can take your yoga look to your favourite lunch spot and have people wondering, ‘How does she look so good in her gym gear?’ while you’re at it.

5 Tips for Wearing Activewear as Streetwear

1 Keep it trendy 

With brands like La Senza in the mix, there’s no excuse for old T-shirts and ill-fitting leggings. In fact, La Senza’s new Street Sport collection is so good, you’ll be bang on trend. La Senza’s collection of bras, bodysuits, hoodies and tights are made for both casual and social settings. Featuring branded elastics, beautiful mesh inserts, racer-back styles and jaw-dropping details, this collection ticks all the boxes.

Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise

A white or plaid shirt tied around your waist, a pair of platform sneakers and even a leather jacket takes your look from Pilates to powerful. Add a trendy pair of mirrored shades and a great handbag and you’re pretty much Rita Ora. Accessorising your street-sport look is key to successfully pulling off gymwear at your local coffee shop.

3 Face the facts

Sure, you wouldn’t wear a full face of makeup to the gym, but you’re not going to the gym. There’s a fine line between just right and way over the top when it comes to makeup and activewear. Flawless skin, strong matte contouring and bold, matte red lips are your friends.

4 Keep it classy 

Taking your activewear to the streets means you need to be extra careful about fabrics. La Senza’s Street Sport collection uses top-quality fabrics to keep you covered while you’re looking fabulous out there.

5 Take your cues from celebs

It-girls Rihanna, Rita Ora, Kylie Jenner and Gwen Stefani have been doing sport luxe for years, so when in doubt, take your cues from one of the experts. Kylie is often seen sporting (see what we did there?) a cropped tee, great leggings, beanie and long coat. Gwen manages to pull off red lips, a ribbed polo-neck top and tracksuit bottoms just as well as she carries off a designer gown.

La Senza’s Street Sport collection starts at R399 and is a must-have for those of you who are loving the street-sport trend.
