Year after year, summer style has its commonalities, and we can say for certain that a beautifully toned torso, the shoulders of a swimmer, and rugby player thighs are never out of vogue. Without loose jumpers and thick knits to hide behind, your body is revealed in all of its glory, the good, the bad, and the ugly put on display for all to see.
This means one thing: it’s time to hit the gym, pound the streets, and get in shape. But although neon and spandex might not be on point in 2016, fitness is. Here are just a few of the accessories that you ought to invest in if you’re not ready to take your finger off the fashion pulse as you sweat it out…
#1: Lululemon Core Shorts
Lululemon has always been a fashion forward workout brand, and their core swim and sports shorts tick every box for style and fitness aficionados. Available in a wide range of hues, they’re not only comfortable and functional, but also fun. Designed to suit every type of exercise, you can wear them as you sweat it out on the treadmill, during interval training, or even when you dive into the pool at the end of a hot and heavy session.
#2: Casio G-Shock
Interval training is the exercise trend of the fitness elite, and the Casio G-Shock ensures that you can take full advantage of all of its bodily benefits. On trend and exquisitely stylish, it also has a more practical function, and can be used by you to program in your intervals and make the most of your training sessions. Tested to military standards, it’s guaranteed to keep up with your workout, and to look chic and sleek as you pump up the pressure.
#3: Custom Skateboard
Skateboarding is the fitness trend of the moment. Commonly associated with ASBO teens, it’s actually a surprisingly fun and effective means of burning some calories, and what better way to amp up the style factor than with your own custom skateboard? Available in a wide range of designs, you can choose a combination to reflect your minimalist adult aesthetic, or else unleash your creative genius in the form of bright tones, tie-dye, and clashing colour combinations.
