Now before you start wagging your lululemon-clothed arms at me, let me just remind you that if you WANT to wear your activewear all day, and feel awesome in your activewear all day, then more power to you – this post isn’t for you. (but maybe this one is).

However, if you feel like you don’t have any other comfortable, easy-to-throw on options besides, your activewear, but you DON’T want to wear it all day everyday, then this post IS for you.

So many of my gorgeous 1-on-1 personal styling clients call me because they want other options for their everyday life, and it’s easier than you think.

In response to that, I thought that I’d put together a few outfits you can pull out in your everyday life that I PROMISE will be as comfy and easy to wear as your activewear.

The Sport-Luxe Look

This is a great outfit if you still want to keep your “Sporty-Spice” look and feel but not a pair of leggings or crop-top in sight.

non activewear options

SHOP THE LOOK: Silent Theory pants from Shine On $59.95 | Seed Heritage sleeveless knit $109.90 | EziBuy pull on trainers $39.99

Make the Jumpsuit your BFF

A jumpsuit is one of my favourite everyday go-to pieces. Especially on those days when you don’t have enough brain-power to work out what top matches what bottom, or when you realised too late that you haven’t shaved your legs? Yup those days.

Whether it’s a long version, or a short version, a jumpsuit is great for running around the park, or on the floor with the kids, but can also be worn to work, a coffee meeting or catching up with a girlfriend for lunch. Super- versatile (and 9 times out of 10, machine washable, and anti-ironing #bonus!)

Non-activewear jumpsuit

SHOP THE LOOK: Winsdor Smith sandals from StyleTread $99.95 | Decjuba Mika overlay jumpsuit $169.95 | Decjuba Alexis playsuit $119.95

Dress it down.

Who said dresses have to be dressy? The right dress can be JUST as comfy (if not more) than your activewear, and like a jumpsuit, you only have to throw on one thing and you’re good to go!.

Look for stretchy fabrics that have some structure and support to them too, that way you’ll feel comfortable and have freedom of movement, but at the same time, you’ll feel supported. Win Win right?

The jeans that don’t feel like jeans

You’ve heard me talk about these before, but these jeans really are the They are super-stretchy and really nice to wear. They practically feel like you’re in your gym gear anyway!
