#FLOSSIEFRIDAY: 5 Trends To Rock Activewear With Streetstyle Chic

Share this!

Ladies, it’s official. Activewear is no longer about kit for the gym, or even just for an après yoga soy mocha latte. Oh hell no! These sweet threads take you everywhere from long haul travel, to your beauty appointments and out to Sunday brunch – even when you have zero intention of working up a sweat! Whaaaaaaat? That’s right!

And last New York Fashion Week the fashionistas rocked sporty chic like pros.

So I thought I’d take a peek on the web to spot the looks you can pull together so that no one is fooled by your chic style… you’re not heading out to exercise, you’ve just aced your activewear streetstyle game.

So here’s our 5 Trends To Rock Activewear With Streetstyle Chic!


Go Monochrome!

Monochrome is everything when it comes to rocking activewear. It’s sleek and chic and is easy to create a wardrobe around – after all, we Kiwis struggle with colour. Think black kicks, a stylish black leather backpack, a black cap and you’re good to roll. Seed Heritage‘s new Seed Sport range is all about the animal print monochromes and it’s cute, stylish and you’ll get notice in all the right ways. See the collection here. Add a cute check shirt like this one from The Warehouse to complete your look.


Get Matchy Matchy

It started with Juicy Couture and velvet matching trackies… roll onto 2017 and matching your tops with your bottoms is totally in! Cotton On has just launched its stunning high performance collection, COAR, and it’s all about matching your looks. Plus, trend alert, they’re bringing in the chicest hyper on trend camo threads to slay your look. See the collection here. So whether it’s comfy grey marles or your fancy training kit, match it up and be part of this stylish trend.


Go High Fashion

Who said active wear couldn’t be high fashion? Kendall Jenner shows us that comfort and style can be happy bedfellows. This is not time for the sneakers, though. Team up your looks with a stylish long coat – perfect for autumn – add cute ankle boots, a chic hand bag and some sweet eyewear, and you’re ready for lunch at the Langham. Who’d have thunk it?


Rock Heavy Metal

Metallics is a trend that’s here to stay and thank goodness, because we love it. Like love love. It’s the perfect way to step out of your comfort zone just a little bit, swapping black for a pop of silver or gold. It’s a stunning showpiece look and you’ll love wearing it. This Metallic Anorak from Seed Sport slays, as does this cute Next Metallic Parka Jacket from Ezibuy. Team it with a cute studded bag and a smile that just won’t quit!



Oversized clothing is no longer about looking like you’ve given up. No, instead it’s the hottest new trend for autumn. Think winged and bell sleeves, dropped shoulder, low slung and comfy as all get out! Even if you did buy this kit for the gym you’ll be hard pushed to take it off any time of the day. Pair it with an oversized top with cute yoga pants and you’re out the door ready to take on the world!
