Our health & fitness issue is the inspiration for the looks this month. Trainers and backpacks are the must-haves. If you like comfortable style, but want to give it a cool twist, be inspired by our suggestions!
The sportive mode is not always super casual, you can opt for stylish trainers, like these animal print ones, and build your look from there. A wool sweater with an off-the-shoulder neckline is a sexy element that adds pizazz and extra character to the denim bottom. If the breeze gets cooler, a trendy parka can complement the look. Usually made with lightweight fabrics, the main role of this coat is to block the wind, a welcome addition at this time of the year. Parkas are seen as a sporty item but, depending on what you pair it with, the result can change.

Strong shades are usually used in sporting clothes for safety reasons. If you go skiing you shouldn’t opt for white or black, if something happens to you, a bright hue will be easier to spot. With this idea in mind, this look features a bright yellow quilted jacket to warm your winter days. The turtleneck top and culottes enhance the fashionista inside you, as they are ‘it’pieces this season. The beanie with pom pom and printed backpack give the final touch to make this look fun and unique.

On the Go
Gym clothes can be boring and are usually not always ready to hit the streets. If you like wearing them as you go about your daily tasks, try to give the look an upgrade so you can grab a coffee or do your groceries in practical, yet stylish fashion. Tank tops are a regular choice but instead of pairing them with tight leggings, you can go for pyjama-like bottoms in interesting prints that are fitted, but not that tight. The golden trainers and the feather earrings give a sophisticated touch to the look, while a jacket will always be handy!
