This year is well under way and Summer is quickly approaching. Once again with thoughts of beach bodies in mind, many wanderers will return to the gym – sometimes to the annoyance of those regular gym bunnies, but never mind! The obsession with health and fitness is here to stay in 2016, so it is time to turn your eye to what trends will be running through the active wear scene this Spring/Summer season, even if you have no desire to actually break a sweat!
There are three main trends that will dominate the Sportswear world this season:
Innovative material, Gym to Street style and Pattern meets texture.
Active wear is becoming intelligent. Materials are being designed not only to look good but to give us more comfort in our gym outfits. Look to Nike and you’ll see a great example in their ultrasmart Tech-Knit range. A range that is designed for warmth yet allows for ventilation.
With our busy lifestyles we need outfits that can transition with us through the day. Gym to street style goes hand in hand with the patterns and textures that are currently adorning active wear. Brand such as Lacoste and Puma are bringing luxury to the weight bench with suede shoes in bold colors and tapered trousers constructed from mesh panelling with double knit cotton. Gone are the days where we wear our dirty old clothes to the gym, and this year you’ll find more gym wear easily can take you straight out for lunch or even to the club.
