Next Sportswear

Sportswear doesn’t always have to break the bank. Yes, I do believe it is important to have lovely activewear that makes you feel confident while you’re working out, but you most certainly don’t need to spend hundreds of pounds – there are plenty of more affordable options out there.

Next* have some amazing own brand pieces of sportswear that are practical, stylish and simple. The T-shirt I’m wearing here for example is made from a soft, lightweight material that is super comfortable and loose fitting, making it perfect to wear to the gym. The shorts are in a classic black and white sports design with zip pockets, which are always handy for carrying your gym card.

I particularly love the rucksack, with the faux leather detail. I use this as a daytime rucksack too, but it makes a great gym back because of the bottom that zips open to reveal a separate compartment for your trainers (or sweaty gym clothes!).
