How to curate a relaxed wardrobe for winter

With cooler weather ahead, we’re giving you the lowdown on how to stay warm, but maintain that casual cool style throughout winter. Think casual and comfortable with a hint of luxe that elevates activewear beyond the gym.

Ultra-high waisted leggings – This is a must-have for your activewear wardrobe. Ultra-high waisted leggings provide core support and tummy control, plus they add more coverage for out and about. This style is also easier to pair with street clothes. Pop on a leather or denim jacket for a dressier look that will take you from yoga or the gym to a brunch with the girls. You can also accessorise with a scarf for those cold mornings and wear white sneakers to add some style to your outfit. We love the Side Strip Tie Dye Legging from Jay Jays.

Hoodies – Hoodies are having a moment (and we’re not complaining about it). The ultimate comfort piece, hoodies have upped their ante in the style stakes. Choose from a range of styles including tie dye, graphics, monochrome or even flannel. They’re an easy piece to incorporate into your everyday look. For a dressier vibe, simply layer with a blazer or keep it casual by pairing it with matching sweat pants. Hoodies are not only available in sweatshirt material but now come in an array of lighter, softer fabrics that can be worn with your favourite sports bra and leggings. Our pick is the effortlessly cool RVCA Sport Hoodie from Surf Dive n Ski.

Layer Up – Stay stylish (and warm) by layering up your outfit. Sweater vests are perfect for mixing and matching in with your existing wardrobe. Simply pop over a knit and layer it with jogger pants for a chic, yet casual look. Or invest in a puffer jacket to take your activewear to the next level on those colder days. You can’t go past the Rib Puffer Vest, available at Rockmans.

Jogger Pants – This off duty look has been given a fancy makeover this season. No longer just worn for a quick trip to the grocery store, jogger pants can be stylish if worn with the right outfit. For a night out, cuffed joggers in luxe fabrics can be worn with an oversized shirt, blazer and heels. Or keep it relaxed by styling the joggers with a black leather jacket, printed tee and slip ons. Comfort and style – what more could you want? We’ll have one in each colour of the Cotton Jogger Pant from Suzanne Grae.
