Neoprene Delight: Wearing Activewear Outside the Gym

Neoprene Delight: Wearing Activewear Outside the Gym

Neoprene Delight: Wearing Activewear Outside the Gym

We’ve all been there – dressed in our cutest and brightest activewear to hit up the gym, when a friend calls and asks to go to lunch.  Well, of course you forgot a change of clothes at home and now you’re forced to walk into a chic cafe wearing an ensemble only Richard Simmons would approve of.  What is it about the 80’s that appeals to us when it comes to activewear?  I suppose the bright colors invigorate our minds and allow us to better enjoy our workout.  However, those pieces are typically only suitable for the gym and the gym alone.  I’m here to share a brand that brings those vibrant items into your everyday wardrobe, from workout to eating out!

Audacia London had my heart the minute I saw their swimsuits (peep this freaking adorable cut-out one piece I’m dying to get my hands on for the summer).  What next drew my eye was their activewear that doubled as the funnest – yep, I said funnest – daytime wear!  From printed shorts, to flattering leggings, to sports bras, and even this fabulous cold shoulder neoprene top, Audacia London knows how to create functional and unique pieces that tug at the heartstrings (and the wallet).  One of the things I love best about these products is that they’re vibrant without being too much.  A statement without looking like you walked off the set of Full House.

Another great aspect about these pieces is that they’re made of such lightweight material.  Neoprene is what Triangl original bikinis are made out of, for reference, and so you’re not likely to get soaked in the rain or feel like you’re wearing a sweatshirt when you pull on one of their long-sleeved tops such as mine.  I’m also a fan of the fact that the leggings have pockets.  If you know me at all, you know that anything with pockets makes me super happy.  It’s nice to have a place to put my phone while I work out, rather than stuffing it into my sports bra or leaving it on the ground while I’m lifting weights.

Alright, so now that I’m done fangirling over this spectacular brand and their activewear, I’m super curious what you look for when it comes to gym clothing.  Do you look for a certain pattern?  A certain bra style?  A certain legging length?  Do you want compression leggings or ones that are high-waisted?  I’d love to do a round-up of my favorite workout pieces and also share some for my readers longing to have their activewear desires come to fruition!  Let me know!

    Leggings with pockets – now that’s what I’m talking about! Love the cold shoulder top too. Can’t believe it’s activewear!

    For my activewear, it’s important that it is drift or water wicking because I sweat so much, and it’s so embarrassing while I’m working out! 2nd most important is the design. Who doesn’t like pretty patterns to work out in 🙂

    Yea that’s what happens… More like I make it look like I was going to workout, even though I had a lunch plan. haha. Anyways, you had me at neoprene. Seriously, the greatest fabric on the planet! Plus this fun 80’s print and the OTS detail makes it that much cuter! You should definitely do a round up of your favorite workout pieces. Would love to see your pieces that make the cut!

    This is such a super chic outfit. I never would have thought it was workout gear if you didn’t say! That top is so adorable and on point for spring. I love pockets on my activewear too. (Heck, I like pockets on everything!)

    I would want activewear that works both at the gym, but for hitting the grocery store. However I couldn’t stop laughing, and am still laughing while typing this, at “only Richard Simmons could approve of”… Is he still “straight” by the way? Hahaha. Oh lord, thank you for giving me a laugh and a wonderful outfit! 🙂
