How to Take Your Activewear From Day to Night

Get the most out of your workout wear with our handy tips on how to transition it effortlessly from day to night.

If you’re looking to incorporate sportier elements into your work wardrobe, it’s never been easier to find stylish activewear to see you through the day from morning workout to evening drinks. An increased focus on wellbeing in the workplace combined with a more flexible attitude towards where we work from has contributed to a significant departure from the way women traditionally dress for the office. The athleisure fashion trend means that today the line between high end athletic wear and ordinary attire has largely been eroded. Read on for our simple tips on how to transition workout wear effortlessly from day to night.

Bold Colour

If you’re feeling brave enough plump for daring colours, either block or tonal, that will stand out and create more of a ‘look’. The sophisticated crimson hues of Ernest Leoty’s Alexia Tank top in cerise and Saskia Leggings in aubergine are subtle enough for a day time look that can be dressed up come happy hour. Wear with a timeless black coat to balance the effect.

Textures

Clever design details can take workout wear from the confines of technical apparel to something that sits comfortably alongside high fashion pieces. Solange Knowles’ white pant suit is given a contemporary twist thanks to the mesh top and trousers: the vibe is youthful, sporty, but elegant too. Ernest Leoty’s Corset Body Suit in grey and white proves performance activewear can be stylish as well as practical. The sexy mesh shoulder straps hint at a subtle flash of skin and the fluid white lines trace the contours of the body. Wear under a lightweight trench with some pristine white trainers.

Black

The no-fuss way to take your sportswear from day to night is by pairing together elements in perennially chic black. Adept at hiding a multitude of sins, black is also easy to pair with other separates making it an economically friendly option in terms of buy-per-wear. Ernest Leoty’s Romy Corset with its elegant straps and flattering bustier shape is the perfect transitional top to pair with jeans and heels, or a chic pair of black palazzo pants.

Classic Palette

If you want your exercise clothes to see you through to evening drinks, lurid colours and patterns are not your friends. Keep your workout gear simple: think plain black, navy, or grey. That’s not to say you can’t mix it up a little by throwing in other colours, but take a leaf out of the ultimate workout girl Gigi Hadid’s book, and make sure it’s a classic shade like camel paired with some high-waisted, black sports leggings like the Ernest Leoty Perform leggings.

Leather

For a cool, low-key look accessorize your gym outfit with a leather jacket and some minimalist white sneakers à la British model Jourdan Dunn. Ernest Leoty’s Ilona Bodysuit blends comfort and sexiness to perfection: the soft technical fabric is expertly tailored at a French corset factory for a snug fit, whilst the graceful sunken neckline, open back, and slender straps display the perfect amount of gym-honed physique once you’ve slipped off the leather jacket.
