Long gone are times when women went to the gym in old, tattered boyfriend T-shirts, washed out leggings and sneakers that have seen better days. The gym has become a place to make a fashion statement. Looking good, even while exercising, is bound to make you feel better and The Upside sportswear company is here to lend you a helping hand with that with their versatile and stylish gymwear range.
The Upside collection covers absolutely everything that you might need in activewear – from legwear, shorts, tops and crop tops to jackets, tracks, hoodies, dresses and even swimwear and accessories. The Upside sports clothes have a dual purpose – they provide comfort and support whilst training and keep you looking stylish. This Australian company caters both for men and women and has a great selection of styles, designs, colors and sizes. The Upside collection has quite a following among celebrities too (supermodels Candice Swanepoel, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Hayley Baldwin, and surf legend Kelly Slater to name a few) and has graced the pages of magazine like Elle Australia, Harpers Bazaar, Vogue and Women’s Health.
As for our favorites from the collection…. We were hard-pressed to pick a few favorite items, but we definitely fell in love with Lily Tank Khaki Leopard and Yoga Pant in Ikat Print because of their saucy look and support. The Yoga Pants have excellent compression like qualities while not restricting movement whatsoever. They have black mesh inserts behind the knees for ventilation teamed up with black paneling on the side. We chose Lily Tank Khaki Leopard because it will definitely turn heads in addition to being very comfortable and practical (the tank has an inbuilt shelf bra and mesh paneling for ventilation).
We’ll leave you with the Upside’s philosophy which we think should be everybody’s motto: “Accept who you are, just as you are. It’s not about the goals you have for the future, or your aspirations for something greater… it’s about loving yourself, in this present moment, just as you come. “
