Put Some Personality into Your Workout Gear


by Lauren Heskin
04th Jun 2015

Nike

It’s almost nigh on impossible to convince ourselves to get up and hit the gym or go for a run. No matter how many pep talks we have with ourselves about how great you feel afterwards and how badly you want to fit into that summer dress you bought a size too small, the decision to go is harder than the workout itself.

Strong commitment to self expression through the art of activewear. Yes those are emojis. ALL of the emojis. Stretchy fashion statements are the only way I know to #keepitmoving

A photo posted by Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) on

 

That’s why we think Lena Dunham is on to something. This morning she posted a workout selfie, in typical Lena style with no #assout or #squatsfordays tags. But that wasn’t what caught our attention, it was her amazing emoji workout leggings! She said herself that “stretchy fashion statements are the only way I know how to #keepitmoving”. There really is nothing like some new clothes to convince you now is the time to hit the gym. So we picked out some of the funkiest workoutwear pieces out there to make you smile on that killer final uphill 2km or the last few of those heinous jumping jacks-push up combos.

 

Nike Pro N + TC Tour LA Training Tights €105

These bright training tights will bring a small bit of sunny California into your life, which is desperately needed if you’re trying to convince yourself to get up and face the rain/hail/sleet/wind in Ireland!

 

Stella McCartney for Adidas Run printed Shorts ??77

These adorable shorts from Stella McCartney’s Adidas collection are perfect for a workout or a run with their double layering of mesh tights and pretty taffeta shorts.

 

Missoni Pip Crochet Headband €159

Stay in style and keep your hair off your face with this Missoni headband in one of their signature prints. Perfect for all those ladies with a fringe that does not look flattering plastered across your forehead.

 

Gaelle Bonheur Tank Top €95

The cut-off sleeves of this Gaelle Bonheur sweat top make it perfect for throwing on after a sweaty gym session. Very Footloose too.

 

Adidas Infinite Series Supernova Bra €40

This Adidas sports bra is summer in a top. Pair with a mesh t-shirt for a chirpy workout look.

 

Phillip Plein All Smiles Leggings €316

If there was ever a time to get some Miley in your life it’s while you’re working out. Have you seen that woman’s abs?! These Phillip Plein leggings will do just the foam-finger-licking trick.

 

Adidas Orginals Archive Sweatshirt €80

 

You could throw on this sweater after a workout and head to the shops without any fear of bumping into someone you know.

 

Lucas Hugh Rio Print Top €89.40 and Leggings €140

If this legging/top duo doesn’t get you in the mood for a badass workout we don’t know what will.
