Ten Activewear Online Stores To Keep You Motivated


Just this week a friend at the gym asked me where she could get some stylish new gym threads, apart from at the one and only queen of fitness fashion (you know who!). If you aren't from Australia, you might not know our active wear choices are dominated by one main label (google Australian fitness clothing) and while this brand's clothes are well-made, flattering, functional and pretty, sometimes you need to mix it up.

It got me thinking, where else can you find cute gym gear? I have posted fashion finds which I think offer a little something for everyone. A few new gym treats will get you wanting to spring into action and hit the road running (or at least power walking...!). 

Adidas by Stella McCartney

Well-made and sporty, Stella's range of active wear gets you straight in the mood for a gym sesh. Bright colours and prints cover a range of shorts, tights, crop tops, singlets and hoodies to suit every type of workout. She has also designed a super stylish range of Adidas running shoes to complete your look. Pieces range from an average of $60 - $150.

The Upside

I just recently posted about this label designed by former Tigerlily owner Jodhi Meares. Solving the dilemma of training to out-about-about, these clothes are so stylish you can wear them confidently in and out of the gym. Jen Hawkins is a fan of their leopard print tights and chic black palette. This stuff is fairly pricey (average $100 per piece), but the items are so versatile and worth the investment.

Vie Activewear (pictured above)

This brand, designed in Bondi (Sydney), is bright and fun with a dash of animal print (of which I just can't get enough of!!!). Fitness favourite Sheryidan Fisher is the face of this activewear label, inspiring us to follow her lead and get out running in some gorgeous new threads. I particularly love the leopard print hoodie and grey tights.

LuluLemon Fans Megan Fox, Reese Witherspoon, Gisele B√ľndchen and Eva Longoria
LuluLemon Athletica 

Canadian-born fitness wear LuluLemon has got a huge range of tights, bras, singlets and hoodies to complement any workout. This brand makes classic activewear in styles, cuts and colours suitable to all age groups. You won't find any mantra-emblazoned singlets at this store. Perfect for yoga lovers. 

Price: $$$

Blockout Fitness 

Compression tights and fitted singlets are a plenty in this well-known activewear brand. Shop for long-lasting tights and crop tops that will become staples in your workout wardrobe. Not to mention, this activewear range is fairly inexpensive with crop tops averaging at $35.00 instead of $85. 

Price: $$



Sportsgirl Activewear - Work It Out Wear

Sportsgirl has just launched a new range of activewear for trend setters' workout wardrobes. While the range is currently limited, watch this space for cute leather-look shorts, neon crop tops and yoga mats to tote. 

Price: $$

Running Bare

This label has been seen on the likes of Jen Hawkins and Jesinta Campbell in a mid-workout selfie. Bright and fun, the colour and print range of these clothes inspire you to keep that pilates date.

All About Eve

While not an activewear brand, I love picking up a few muscle tees and baggy singlets from this fresh and young label. Mix fun tees with your fitness tights, throw over a cute denim jacket and stuff your headphones into one of their printed back packs for post-gym acai bowls with the girls. Also a fab site for gorgeous bikinis and beach attire staples.

Cotton On Active

Basic pieces in light material are perfect for walks on hot summer days. Super cute prints adorn comfy shorts, supportive sports bras and breathable singlets. These clothes are so inexpensive, giving you no excuse to cancel that gym membership. Make sure to check out Ricki-Lee's new range of dance gear for Cotton On Body, featuring cute undie and bra sets and sports sequined jackets.

Supre Sporte

Great for basics, Supre offers t-shirts, crop tops and tights ranging from as a little as $5! Add these pieces with more expensive exercise gear to complete the look. A little tip: thin and inexpensive tights are often transparent which is not a good look while doing squats in the gym if you know what I mean! These pieces are best layered with longer t-shirts to prevent any see-through moments. Crop tops or sports bras from here also have limited support but are handy for yoga or pilates as they are super comfy.

Also check out www.stylerunner.com/‎ for all your fitness wear needs. They have a massive range of active wear, with some seriously chic get-up inspired straight from the runway.
