SHAPING UP IN STYLE

Sportswear has taken a major turn for the better, with brands and designers turning their hands at creating proper activewear that not only does the job well, but also looks good. Where once we had to choose between being sporty and being chic, now, it’s easy to be both: there is a whole bunch of websites that cherry-pick the best brands from all over the world. Here is our pick of the top four to check out.

  • 1. MODE SPORTIF

    Mode Sportif

    Owner Deborah Symond conceived this online, Australian sportswear site to bridge the gap between her gym and going-out gear. With a great selection of loungewear (think silk sweatshirts, pretty sandals) designed to get you to the gym looking great, and a strong range of on-trend activewear brands that will see you looking super-chic while you work out, Mode Sportif is a one-stop shop for your new, healthy life’s wardrobe.
