I’m all about the capsule wardrobe life (we all know that by now right?!) but did you know that I’m even more passionate about this concept when it comes to my active wardrobe. I love stocking up on versatile staples that mix & match with ease and will see me through an entire years’ worth of workouts.

In this post, I’m going to show you how to create a 10 piece active capsule that will have you covered for both hot & cold temps. I’ve used an all-black theme in this example because that’s what I’m currently using however you could re-create the same capsule using colours that flatter and work well with your particular skin-tone.

TOPS


NIMBLE ACTIVEWEAR – LONG LINE SPORTS BRA
C&M CAMILLA AND MARC – CLASSIC LOGO TANK
ADIDAS – SUPERNOVA TEE

CROP TOP – A fuss-free crop is such an essential. Practical on its own and perfect for layering under pieces that have wide armholes. Crops with a wider waistband look great too when styled with high-waisted bottoms for a sporty off-duty look.

TANK TOP – A sleeveless tank top gives you movement so you can really concentrate on form and see how your upper body moves during an exercise.

LONG SLEEVE TOP – A must-have for Winter! What’s more, roll the sleeves to elbow length and you’ve got a great transeasonal piece too.

BOTTOMS


FLIGHTMODE – REVOLUTION BIKE SHORT
ADIDAS – ID STADIUM PANT
NIKE – RACER MID-RISE RUNNING TIGHTS

BIKE SHORTS – A great investment not only for your active wardrobe but for your off-duty look as well. I find a mid-length short the most versatile all year round.

SWEATPANTS – Cosy and comfortable whilst also giving off that effortless vibe. The perfect piece for those rainy home workout days.

FULL LENGTH TIGHTS – The active wardrobe hero! I prefer a solid colour that works hard to lengthen the look of the legs as well.

OUTERWEAR


P.E NATION – MONEY TIME SWEAT
JAGGAD – LANEWAY ANORAK

SWEATSHIRT – Wear layered underneath an anorak on really cold days or style with sneakers and a statement skirt for the ultimate sportsluxe look.

ANORAK – Lightweight, rain-resistant and warm – the one piece you never knew you needed until you got your hands on one.

ACCESSORIES


NEW ERA – NEW YORK YANKEES 9FORTY CAP
PUMA – JAAB XT TZ WOMENS TRAINERS

TRUCKER CAP – Just because we’re working out, doesn’t mean we can’t accessorise. I love wearing a cap when I’m training, not only to keep me sun safe but to keep the hair off my face as well.

SNEAKERS – When it comes to shoes, I like to stock up first on a pair that matches back with the colours in my capsule to give me that versatility. From here, I can experiment with fun colours and prints to inject some personality into my outfits.
