Emma Willis has revealed her latest Next collection and we want it all

It’s 20 December, which is not normally the time of year we’d be thinking about working out – from now until new year, you’re more likely to find us with a gin that at the gym. But Emma Willis is one step ahead of us all, as she’s just unveiled her latest collection with Next, and it’s a fabulous activewear edit.

‘Sportswear was something I really wanted to do… January just seems perfect because you have that month of indulgence for Christmas,’ the mum-of-three explains of the launch.

It was really important to do sportswear that looked really good but was functional…and also didn’t cost the earth, so it was affordable.’

True to her word, Emma has designed a collection of stylish yet purse-friendly sports clothing, spanning everything from bras to hoodies to leggings, suitable for both low or high intensity workouts. The collection is centred on a palette of cool greys and charcoals, with pops of warmer colours like coral and orange for contrast.

Many of the items also have classic sweat-wicking workout material with four-way stretch technology, to ensure no matter how much you’re moving, you stay comfortable throughout your routine.

‘I go to the gym so I can be strong and stay able as I get older. It’s not about vanity but just looking to the future and staying strong,’ Emma adds.

‘Keeping things different is important. When it gets repetitive, then not only does my body get used to it but I get bored so I need to change it up a lot.’

And while all this talk of workout regimes may seem premature as you tuck into your Quality Street, we’ve released that the launch date is actually pretty genius, because you’ve still got time to put a piece or two on our Christmas lists to enjoy in the new year.

However, Emma’s goals for next year aren’t solely exercise-based: ‘My New Year’s resolution is the same every year which is to get better at time keeping and replying to messages quicker.

‘I feel like if I keep the same resolution every year then at some point I’ll achieve it!’

The Emma Willis activewear collection is available online now and will be in stores from 31 December.
