One of this season’s hottest trends is animal prints and the hottest of them all is leopard print! It’s crossed over into the sportswear/active wear arena this autumn/winter and new Aussie label Vie Active launched by former sales ad’ ex turned PT, shows you how to incorporate this fun look into your workout wardrobe.
The label, which is only four and a half months old, is made from lightweight, high performance Australian Merino wool, which is breathable, moisture wicking and anti microbial. Their signature, leopard, collection consists of, tanks, bras, leggings, cover ups and tees. Most have, flat seams, concealed pockets/zips and block colour supplex which is fade resistant . They have wide range of styles so you can you can go full on leopard or just add a touch. The founders wanted to create a label that was ‘fashionably chic but could handle the intensity of a tough workout’ and they do it well by seamless blending fashion with function and getting the ‘street to studio’ look just right.
There are so many cool pieces to choose from but these are my top three from the collection which really showcase the different ways you can wear leopard print whilst training.
Libby Hoodie – Rock this to the gym as pre and post cover up so super stylish that you will forget that it’s active wear. It’s not only a head turner but a statement piece for your workout wardrobe. The Lee Superlight scoop is perfect for when you want your leopard print to pop and still look stylish and the Black Leopard Rockwell printed long length legging are very chic and must-have if you want to wear leopard in a more subtle way. They ship to the UK and there are way more styles on their site so pop over to www.vieactivewear.com you won’t be disappointed.
