Australia’s Spring 2017 Activewear Roundup

New season, new activewear? As if you needed an excuse! ClassPass has you covered with a roundup of the hottest new gear making its way into our closets this spring.


Nimble Activewear is our pick for the hottest and most functional tights. In a few short years, the Bondi Beach label has nimbly leapt to the top of the leggings game, known for its understated yet bold prints. Nimble’s hallmark style is dark tights with a monochrome print or a bold print as a contrasting highlight near the hem, like its popular winged tights. Often featuring subtle mesh at just the right moisture-wicking spot, these quick-drying, light compression tights can take you from workout to brunch and beyond. New for spring are big bursts of colour like their abstract red bamboo tights. Don’t worry; they have a matching bra and simple tops to make pulling an outfit together a breeze.


Having trouble matching your trainers to your new printed tights? Why not design your own? Nike iD lets you do just that. Pick your favorite Nike kick then make it your own. Most of Nike’s styles are available for customisation, letting you choose your own colourway throughout the shoe (outside, inside, sole, the lot). Personalisation is a huge trend right now and you can add your own initials, name or symbol to the shoes as well, making it super simple to figure out which Nikes are yours after yoga class.


Australia’s answer to Spiritual Gangster, Yogi Peace Club offers super soft and cute tops which work for yoga and beyond. Designed in Torquay and ethically made in Thailand, YPC offers a variety of styles and fits. New for spring are printed and plain tanks in colourways that let you coordinate with the boldest of leggings—neutral shades with simple and stylish yoga-inspired prints. Choose from muscle tanks to longer fits that will keep everything covered when you go upside down.

Sports bras

You can’t go past Lululemon for an amazing range of stylish and functional sports bras. Lulu has a huge selection and customises fits for cup size and activity. We are lusting after the ‘Fresh In Mesh’ bra, which features a sheer back with super sexy seams. Or you can peek-a-boo your cleavage if you prefer with the ‘Run The Day’ bra, which has a deep v back that will keep you cool on both fronts. Lulu updates its core styles with new prints and colours each season, so if you have a style you can’t live without, you can still get it for your spring refresh.

Yoga mats

Keep your drishti (gazing point) to yourself with a stunning mat from The Bowern. Eco-friendly Bowern mats fuse a microfiber yoga towel onto a rubber mat. It’s perfect for sweaty styles as the mat’s grip kicks in once the sweat starts to pour, and it makes a dreamy backdrop for yummy yin-yoga sessions. We’ve been practicing with the gorgeous, purple mandala mat ‘The Spirit’ for a while now and started wondering whether a new mat was in order once we saw the new ‘Falling in Pastel,’ which looks exactly what it sounds like, in stunning pinks and creams. Plus you can chuck it in the washing machine and it comes with its own carry strap, which doubles as a yoga strap in a pinch.
