I find it so difficult sometimes to find gym and sports clothes that are comfortable to work out in, good quality and long-lasting, and fit the colour scheme of black, white or nude. Over the past four years I have been trying to build a collection of gym clothes I can throw on and be comfortable but pieces that are cool enough to wear out for coffee too.

I have found a few staple activewear brands that I can always rely on and can finally share them with everyone else too.  These are Nike, Olympia Activewear, Lucas Hugh, Adidas by Stella McCartney and Bodyism. Luckily most of these brands can be found in one place at net-a-porter.com.

I have three tips for buying gym clothes I feel are really important -

1. Cross-back sports bra's are best. A lot of women don't work out their back muscles and I didn't until around a year ago, however this looks so good on girls! These types of sports bra's show off your back and let you see the progress you're making!

2. Capri leggings are a must for any gym wardrobe! I always go by the saying 'you have to look good to feel good', and nothing feels better than strutting to the gym with freshly tanned legs in your capri's and the latest Nike's.

3. Going for a run? Wrap up! Whenever I felt like the gym was boring me and I wanted to get outdoors and run instead, I always assumed minimal clothing because i'll get hot and sweat anyway. I learned the hard way that running in Autumn/Winter (Spring included if you live in England like me) - it is still windy and cold. Make sure you have a running jacket or gilet, and a beanie for your head and ears. You will thank me later!
