GET MOVING, IN STYLE!
The past year has been different in many, many ways. And the way we kept ourselves in shape has evolved, too! With the sports center and gyms closed, we had to make do. As simple as it is, movement is always good for the body and mind. So let’s get to it… in style!
Here are the new trends in sportswear! Colourful, stylish, made from ultra-comfy fabrics: a dream for Sporty Spices and fashionistas altogether.
Yoga is a discipline based on a group of physical, mental and spiritual practices that originated in India thousands of years ago. Pushing your physical limits while controlling your breathing makes you realize how strong you really are: it’s one of the most beautiful things you can learn from this sport.
PERFECT OUTFIT: You want to make sure your clothes are not going to bother you - think comfy! Go for stretch fabrics that will stay dry even if you sweat. Synthetic fabrics, like elastane, are known for their exceptional elasticity and fast-drying properties.
DOWN THE SLOPES
Enjoy the wonders of winter on the slopes! Many physical and mental benefits are associated with alpine skiing. When you exercise, your brain produce endorphins, also known as the hormones of happiness. And we can’t help but like the speed, adrenaline and the feeling of power and freedom that come with it, too! It’s pretty awesome.
PERFECT OUTFIT: Layering is your best friend! That said, this year, add the essential protective mask on top of it. Remember to get a long neck warmer that will protect you from germs in addition to being very warm! #win
Unfortunately, gyms are alternately close and open for a few months, so some people have moved the gym to their home. Cardio equipment, weights, online classes. It is quite possible to maintain good habits at home!
PERFECT OUTFIT: Once again, look for comfy and breathable fabrics. Ladies, make sure you wear a sports bra. Crisscrossed straps at the back offer great support, and we suggest choosing an antibacterial fabric, especially if you don’t wash your bra every time you wear it.
Excellent news: most municipal swimming pools are still open and remain the sport par excellence for all those who hate to sweat and be hot! Swimming is a full-body workout that allows you to hit all your major muscle groups in a soft, but efficient way. As if that weren’t enough, the buoyancy of water (hence no joint impact) makes swimming perfect for people with injuries. Jump in!
PERFECT OUTFIT: Ladies, go for a wide strap one-piece swimsuit that keeps everything in its place!
A GOOD WALK
Have you ever heard of active contemplation? Enchanting decor, birds whistling, falling snow... Walking can be practiced everywhere, in town or in the countryside, whether you have only ten minutes or a big hour to spend outside. Go for it!
PERFECT OUTFIT: Of course you’ll need a good pair of boots! Warm, comfortable and light. As for pants, keep the huge snow pants of your childhood in the past where they belong, and opt for thin and lined pants that will be warm enough for your active walk. Good thick gloves and a few layers of technical clothing can’t hurt, either!
ALWAYS IN ACTION
No need to practice a specific sport to be active! This section is for the ones who are always on the go. Here are 3 sporty style outfits that will be perfect for the busy days - or for the times when you feel like adopting the lounging style of an off-runway model. #athleisure
