Lockdown has changed many, many aspects of our lives, not least the amount of activewear we’re currently wearing. Whether we’re actually exercising is neither here nor there – activewear is just as good for our daily run as it is for WFH Zoom calls and Sunday afternoon Netflix binges (reaching for the TV remote totally counts as exercise, right?).
All this has left us feeling like our workout wardrobes could do with a little refresh (there’s nothing like the feeling of a new leggings and sports bra combo to get us motivated to work out), so boy were we delighted to see that COS has just launched its first ever range of activewear.
Comprising of clothing and accessories, the collection is naturally super stylish, in a slick muted colour palette of deep navy, chocolate brown and pastel pink. But that’s not all; the majority of the collection is crafted from recycled and sustainably-sourced fabrics, such as organic cotton and recycled nylon and polyester, making your workout good for the planet as well as your health.
Considering COS’s usual price points, the COS Active line is very reasonably priced, starting from just £7. From seamless leggings, sports bras and jackets to performance shorts, swimwear and cropped hoodies, the collection has everything you need to get your sweat on, whatever your workout of choice.
There’s also a wide range of super practical and useful accessories, such as a mesh cap, trainer socks, nylon gym bags and hair ties. Interestingly, the high-end high street brand has taken the opportunity to include some more unusual items in the offering, too, including a self-cleaning water bottle, natural deodorant pot, a set of laundry bags, travel hairbrush and a portable powerbank.
