Staying at home doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your style or sit all day on the couch. Ditto with forgoing in your spiritual yoga sessions at your favourite studio. Given that social distancing, YouTube workouts and live streamed classes are the new black, who knew that you can make the most out of your home?
In addition to restricting our shopping to toilet paper and food, we’ve also decided to shop on our phones, desktops, tablets and/or laptops, making an order at the tap of our index fingers. Though we still want to feel fashionable at home, let us not forget that there are red hot drops you can add to your exercise gear:
Modibodi Active Running Shorts, $38 USD
Luckily, staying at home means that you don’t have to be embarrassed about period blood leaking from your leggings during class. As Australia’s up-and-coming brand, Modibodi is revolusionising the activewear game with its leakproof shorts. Not only is it leakproof, it also wicks away sweat, kills odour and absorbs all fluids quickly. Trust us, you don’t need to clean up your carpet or floor any longer!
PUMA x Charlotte Olympia Sweatshirt, S$119
British footwear designer Charlotte Olympia lifts up her wand to put in a touch of her signature quirky glamour on this sweet pink sweatshirt for the logo lovers. Featuring the panther and spider web emblems, it offers a pop of playful fun. Pare it down with a pair of basic black leggings or amp up the fun with Olympia’s fringed leopard print shorts.
Morgan Stewart Sport Cantaloupe Sports Bra and Legging, US$54.60 and US$64.40 respectively
Designed by E! Daily Pop’s Morgan Stewart, this stellar set features an underwire-free sports bra and leggings. Built for extra support and lift at the bust, this sports bra also prevents your boobs from jumping all over the place during high intensity workouts. Its equally phenomenal leggings also lengthen and contour your legs to fake supermodel stems.
Miaou Gwen Top, US$96
Feminine, yet sporty, this ultra cropped top references no other than the queen herself: Gwen Stefani. Channel the chanteuse’s Cali girl vibe with this cute ruched top! Featuring a bungee tie at the centre, you can shorten or elongate the hem. Just pair it with low rise sweatpants or high-waisted leggings for your Pilates workout.
Sebnem Gunay Melted Ice Cream Bodysuit, €79.00
Belgium designer Sebnem Gunay has won the hearts of influencers with her sporty meets sweet aesthetic. Featuring clean lines, colour blocking and neon piping, this bodysuit will brighten up your day with its cheerful sherbet hues. Pair yours with biker shorts or striped track pants alongside a pair of ‘90s inspired chunky sneakers.
Paradised Crinkled Cotton Gauze Jacket, US$409.28
Of course, there will be some moments that you may need to step out of your home, be it to walk the dogs or a quick grocery run before you duck back into self-isolation, this breezy jacket is easy to throw on. Constructed from cotton, this breathable material balances out all that spandex you’re wearing, which is reportedly the cause of butt acne (yikes!). Wear it with your trusty leggings and t-shirt for an easy and effortless look.
KORAL x KAPPA Aello High Rise Leggings, S$158.31
In a sea of neons and pastels, all you truly need is a pair of basic black leggings. Mind you, these wet look leggings are good enough to take you out from your at-home gym to the supermarket thanks to its latex-like shine. Featuring the Kappa logo at the waistband, it brings us back to our middle school days when the logo graced our feet and tracksuits. If you are too lazy to dress up for your Zoom birthday party, you can channel your inner Kim K with the brand’s matching wet look sports bra.
Alo Peak Bra in White, S$77.72
Sports bras often cross the line of being restricted to at-home use only, but this top is more than just another sports bra. Featuring a small cutout detail at the shoulder and a twist detail at the back, you can style it with a windbreaker and high-waisted shorts when you need to run errands, then swap the bottoms for a pair of high-waisted joggers and forgo the outerwear when you need to squeeze in your live stream workout from ClassPass.
Ultracor Velocity Micro Camo Long Sleeve Top, US$198
Cult celebrity brand Ultracor has been a hit among Alessandra Ambrosio and Hilary Duff, who have been spotted wearing the brand’s printed designs. If you wanna be a baddie, but aren’t in the mood to show off your arms, you can flaunt your figure with this long sleeved camo top. Style it with bike shorts or loose track pants when you’re doing your daily vinyasa.
Vivre Elite Embrace Maternity Crop, S$75
Staying in shape while making room for the baby isn’t easy; however, don’t let your newly growing baby belly get in the way of your fitness! Easy to pull on and take off, these capri leggings are stylish, yet functional. Style it with a tunic when you’re going out and swap it for a sweatshirt when you’re working a sweat.
