Gym junkies and regular folk alike, we are all mobilising our flesh vehicles around in hopes that the better we care for them, the better we will feel. In the spirit of utilising our bodies before we’re withered, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite brands to get active in, because even if your coordination levels are at subzero, your outfit can compensate.
An old, faithful favourite. With a commitment to diversity and sustainability, performance is not the only thing going for Nike. Their extremely extensive range caters to essentially any kind of sporting needs you may have, even if those sporting needs include playing Wii in a tracksuit.
A minimalists dream. Stretchy ribbed sets fit into the elevated activewear category with their muted, on-trend tonal palettes. A range of sports bras, leggings, bike shorts, and more have you SET (sorry).
Blurring the lines between activewear and streetwear, P.E Nation is something of a cult favourite among Sydney siders. With its luxe athleisure aesthetic and function-driven silhouettes, P.E is designed to fit into your active life effortlessly without compromising style for comfort in their streetwear forward pieces.
Founded in Los Angeles in 2007, Alo was conceived from a love of the transformative power of yoga. Based on contemporary comfort, Alo prides themselves for being suitable off-mat wear. Stocking a huge range of yoga-geared crops and leggings in all the colours (especially pastels), there’s something for everyone.
With their philosophy deeply rooted in sustainability and studio-to-street style, Nagnata is the brand we’re all wearing at the moment. Their 70’s inspired crops and bike shorts could easily be worn with jeans or a button down post or pre workout and are technically supported by soft wool fabrications insulated in all the right ways.
The cool-girl activewear brand. Designed by women for women, LNDR lends to the sustainably-focused, function-forward crowd with their minimal, geometric designs which fit perfectly from the gym into streetwear.
For those of us who like to be fashion-forward without compromising planetary wellbeing or function. McCartney has been a long supporter of animal rights and sustainable practices. Here, her collaboration with Adidas skimps on none of these, while offering a streamlined edit of pieces championing performance.
The crème de la crème of classic activewear. Geared towards yoga and performance, Lululemon is a long-standing house name associated with efficiency. Based around technical athletic apparel married with a strong aim to build community, you can always rely on a classic.
The most millennial of brands by miles. Made famous by social media, Gymshark was conceived and launched by a teenager in his garage and has morphed into one of the fastest growing athletic brands in fitness.
Another age old classic. Australian based Lorna Jane is founded on empowering women to live an active life. With a range spanning activewear, outerwear and even swimwear, you’re sure to find anything between a simple pair of exercise pants and a jersey skirt.
