If you ask us, making activewear and loungewear our modus operandi has got to be among the few silver linings that we got out of 2020. With our new homebound lifestyles, gone are the days when we have to put on a piece of crisp shirt and sleek pants – now, it’s all about leggings, relaxed tees, and sports crops.
Net-a-Porter took notice of this trend and recently introduced the latest Sporter capsule, the e-store’s luxury sports and activewear edit. Page after page, this particular iteration is filled with so many lush options, we seriously doubt you’ll miss your regular clothes after living in these.
Proving that comfort and style can go hand in hand, you can expect to see brands such Reebok x Victoria Beckham, Tory Sport, APL, Veja, The Upside, Heroine Sport alongside household brands like Nike and Adidas Originals, but one of the highlights of the edit for us has got to be the exclusive JW Anderson après sport collection.
It’s a small range of elevated sports luxe-meets-loungewear pieces that are made for easy-wearing and easy-layering; in other words, these are pieces that’ll be on endless rotation in your wardrobe.
So whether you’re looking for a supportive yet stylish sports bra or a chic beige pullover, we’re sure you’ll find something here that’ll tickle your fancy (and potentially motivate you to break a sweat). Keep reading to check out some of the items that we have our eyes on!
