During lockdown, we all divvied up into two camps – the ones who went fanatic for fitness, downloading every online home workout and ordering dumbbells off Amazon (those poor posties), and those who took the more ‘relaxed’ approach, where the most daily exercise you got was walking to the kitchen to bake another loaf of banana bread.
Whichever camp you fell into (or if you dallied in a bit of both), elasticated waistbands and stretchy fabrics were a must. Combined with the fact many of us were and still are working from home, activewear has firmly cemented itself into our everyday wardrobe, whether we’re pounding pavements or pottering about the house.
So we couldn’t have been more excited when we saw that Boden activewear has finally arrived – and it’s full of some gorgeous, must-have pieces. There’s also some fantastic new loungewear in the range too, covering all your bases whatever you’re up to, always with comfort in mind.
First up is the activewear – we love the stylish colour palette of forest green, navy and bubblegum pink, which you can find on a sports bra, leggings, long sleeve top and a zip through jacket. There’s no better motivator to get to the gym or out on a run than the thought of a new outfit to do it in, so we say treat yourself and thank us later.
For your ‘slower-paced’ days, there’s the comfy-looking range of sweats and hoodies in super soft fabrics – the knitted Morton set with tapered joggers and rainbow accents is a must for lazy (yet stylish) Sundays, and that happy-hued rainbow stripe design works its way across other leggings, jumpers and hoodies, too.
The full collection is available to shop at boden.co.uk now, but some pieces are currently only open for pre-order, however we’d suggest not waiting to get your orders in as covetable Boden pieces often sell out fast.
