6 of the best activewear trends of 2021

Activewear was once only thought of as gym attire for those sweaty workout sessions. Long gone are the days of oversized tees and old battered black leggings. Nowadays, the style and comfort of activewear has propelled it into becoming a wardrobe staple for most people. 

Whether you are looking for exercise wear, streetwear, loungewear, day wear or workwear here is a list of the 6 best activewear trends of 2021 to help inspire your wardrobe:

#1: Pretty in Pastel 

Does it get any better than a beautiful pastel colour? I don't think so. When these beautiful muted tones started gracing the websites of activewear brands I couldn't have been more excited. I'm talking about beautiful pastel pinks, lilacs, mints and blues. Pastel colours are flattering on everyone and can be easily paired with the activewear pieces you already own. With spring just around the corner, these pastel hues are the perfect addition to your activewear wardrobe.

 #2: Why not match

If you can't get enough of those pastel hues then this trend is for you. Matching sets have become a huge trend for 2021. If you love a colour or pattern so much then why not double it up and wear it both top and bottom. A perfectly matched activewear set is the way to go if you are looking to elevate your activewear style. If colour isn’t your style then a perfectly matched all black activewear set is still a classic.

#3: The high waist

Leggings have been a staple for activewear lovers for years. They are comfortable, flattering, stylish and versatile and they come in a range of colours and styles to suit everyone. So how can you improve on such a classic? Enter the high waist. High waisted leggings are flattering for all shapes, provide more coverage and support and are quickly becoming my new favourite trend. You can pair a high waisted legging with any top you have in your wardrobe. Styled with the next trend you will have an easy to throw on, Instagram worthy outfit.

#4: Long and cropped

Are you looking for the perfect match to your high waisted leggings? Look no further than the long sleeved crop sweat. When there is still a chill in the air but it’s not quite winter anymore it is hard to decide what to wear. The long sleeve crop offers fuller coverage whilst keeping you cool at the same time. You can wear the crop oversized to attain that boyfriend look or wear it fitted for a sleeker style. Available in a range of colours and fabrics there is a cropped sweat out there for everyone. The long sleeve crop will quickly become your new staple sweatshirt.

#5: Bike shorts are here to stay

Bike shorts are back and they have teamed up with the high waist to make a stylish trend in 2021. High waisted bike shorts are an essential for every activewear lover and with summer fast approaching there is no better time to jump on this trend and make it your own. Pair the bike short with a sweatshirt or cropped tee for a relaxed look or chuck on a blazer and some heels for a night out. Bike shorts are a versatile and comfortable staple to any wardrobe so go out and give them a try.
