TRACKS & LEGGINGS
Lululemon Fast and Free Tights
Why you'll love them: For so many reasons: their stretch (and the amazing way they retain their shape), the hidden waistband pocket for stashing essentials, the thigh pocket that holds almost any phone snugly, the high-rise waistband that keeps you covered… The list goes on.
The Upside Rak Shak Track
Why you'll love them: Because even though comfort comes first with these denim-washed 100% cotton pants, they still deliver all the style cred you're looking for with their on-trend design and rose gold detailing.
Nimble Lauren 7/8 Tights Blue Splash
Why you'll love them: Smooth-seamed and zipper-free, nothing will get between you and your workout when you're sporting these threads. And with four-way-stretch, moisture-wicking compression fabric and a wide waistband that stays put, they're as technical and they are beautiful.
Alo Yoga High-Waist Moto Legging
Why you'll love them: Combining uber cool street style with comfort, the Alo Yoga Moto leggings will give your gym wardrobe street cred. What makes them special is the lifting fit, contouring shine fabric and forward mesh panels with a hold-it-in five-inch waistband. Om-azing.
P.E Nation Delta Time Sweat
Why you'll love it: Because it features the retro design and signature colour blocking we've come to love from this Aussie-born brand. Plus, its uber-stylish funnel neck detail is guaranteed to keep you warm to and from the gym.
Cotton On Slim Puffer Jacket
Why you'll love it: What's not to love about this fusion of lightweight track top and puffer jacket? And with a price tag under $50, you can afford to buy it in all three colours: deep ivy (shown), charcoal marble and BB Black.

CROPS & BRAS

Slinkii Black Marble Bra
Why you'll love it: Because marble is so hot right now – yes, even in gymwear. And just like real marble, each garment is unique in its print. Plus, it's made from nylon micro-mesh spandex, features moisture wicking and quick dry technologies, and is designed for comfort.

This glossy crop is made from top quality, moisture wicking performance fabric and is designed to deliver a tightened silhouette, improved circulation and structural support. Go on, set your inner sparkle free!
Abi and Joseph Non-Slip Toeless Socks
Why you'll love them: They're the perfect way to keep your tootsies warm during your Pilates or yoga class. And because they're non-slip and toeless, you can still keep your feet firmly on the ground. Available in Small (sizes 2–8) and Large (sizes 6–11).
