Whether you’re a sports luxe queen, gym junkie, ballet barre regular or simply like the rest of us love replacing weekend wear with comfy fashionable sports gear! Here’s our roundup of Australia’s best brands doing it all in the name style and comfort.


The Upside

I am just obsessed with the new 2015 The Upside collection and campaign that embraces all shapes, sizes and sports fare for women. Featuring some of our favourite femmes like Pip Edwards, Laura Wells and Jessica Gomes this sports range rocks as much as my new python yoga leggings! The quality and design is uber modern and luxe. There is no downside to this upside…

Vie Active Bondi

Known as high performance style for the fitness and fashion snob, this Bondi based brand got our attention. This aspirational brand specialises in luxe options so that the everyday woman doesn’t have to compromise how she looks or feels. The collection is made from pure Merino fabrics which is a super-lightweight, natural and quick drying. So for those that stay in their gym gear well after a work out – this is a good Aussie option.

Country Road

I caught a luxe pony grey and lemon gym tank in a Country Road store window last week, bought it immediately and haven’t stopped wearing it since. These guys have just launched a new category called “Active” and there’s certainly something for everyone – from perforated shorts, to wind breakers, and even delicious spearmint-coloured gym towels. Shop, click, buy… right now.

First Base

If you’re going for a relaxed and casual vibe, then this brand is perfect for you. Inspired from a cult love of surf and skate, this brand is best known for their basic crops, muscle tanks, loungey track-pants and swimwear (all in flattering cool cuts), and they don’t cost an arm and a leg – just make them look good in a cool point break slash flashdance kind of way!

With the new SKINS A400 range, compression sportswear has never looked so chic. Known for the science behind their athletic gear Skins A400 has developed a fashionable but technologically advanced range. With cute zips and flattering body lines – this is perfect for the fitness femme who wears sports luxe AND works out in it on the weekends!
