Fitness fashion goes hyper warm so you can workout in the cold

It’s now official – you can (and should) be seen wearing your fitness gear to the gym, to get the groceries, to pick your kids up from school, to go out for lunch or coffee and to relax in generally.  But in the colder months you need to think a bit harder about what you're going to wear, making sure that it not only keeps you warm but is wearable for a run outside or a trip to the gym as well.

The problem with all of this is that once addicted to the appeal of sportwear – stretchy, streamlining, flattering – is that you’ll never want to take it off.  Add into this the sportsgear that’ll actually keep you warm, and you’re pretty much set. 

Lifestyle sportswear has never been so good and all you need to do to keep it versatile is to swap your long sleeved top for a gym top if you change the type of exercise you want to do.

One thing I would say is that if you’re remotely tempted to go walking or running outside as it’s turning dark, make sure that you wear at least one item that can be seen easily, and/or carry a torch.  It’s too easy to get set and go when it’s daylight and end up, black from head to toe, in the pitch dark…..
