Stylish Saturday: Fitness Meets Fashion

Lately we have become more and more health conscious. More and more people are heading to the gym or taking outdoor fitness classes. The demand for sports apparels is increasing. More and more designers and designer labels such as Alexander Wang, Nike, Adidas have intercepted the world of fitness. One of the key fashion staples to invest in for anyone into fitness is definitely a hoodie. A hoodie is so versatile and helps to keep you warm before you start an outdoor training or after you leave the gym. Ian Wright, Menswear Editor from Marks & Spencer wrote that a super-soft, tailored hoodie is the ideal throw-on summer layer both on and off the field. I have shopped around for some hoodies which come in different entry prices.

The American Apparel French Terry S/S Kangaroo Pullover Hoodie is an ideal fashion piece for spring and early summer in Australia. American Apparel does sales from time to time so keep an eye on its website but if you cannot wait to update your wardrobe for SS15, it comes with a price tag of $78.00 and you can buy it here.

Calvin Klein Collection has also included a two-tone tech jersey hoodie in its FW2015 collection. It is available from Mr Porter now and it comes with a heavy price tag of £325. If you do have extra cash to splash and you adore Calvin Klein, this fitness staple is worth getting and you’ll have all eyes on you as you step into the gym.

For something that is comfortable, classic and does not burn a hole in your wallet, Bonds Denim hoodie matches all the above criteria. Currently on sale right now at $30.00 (RRP $59.95), Bonds hoodie will help you stay warm throughout most of the time of the year and definitely a fashion staple you should have when it comes to fitness.

For a pop of colour, H&M hooded jacket has an entry price point that the majority can afford. For $29.95, this series comes in different colours such as classic black, grey and dark blue. God bless H&M!

Acne Studios is lately gaining more attention from the fashion world. I bought my first Acne Studios item from its SS15 collection and I cannot wait for the perfect timing to put that on. The Johna Cotton-Blend Jersey Hoodie is available from Mr Porter now with a price tag of £150. It is not as expensive as the Calvin Klein Collection ones and I think this fashion piece can last beyond one season. Acne Studios is one fashion house you want to watch out for.
