Right now my weekends consist of walks on the beach, mountain trails and a stop-and-start attempt at jogging, and my wardrobe isn’t exactly up to pace.

Yes, I repeatedly spent half my monthly wage on athleisure wear at the peak of the pandemic, but those elasticated waistlines are no longer serving me.

My impressive mix of leggings have become more transparent than squat-proof and it looks like a cat has bedded in with my vest and sweater tops. And to be honest, I’m getting a little bored of my wall-to-wall black wardrobe.

I need some colour, and I need it now.

Regardless of whether you’re an exercise newbie or a fitness fanatic, you can find your flex with my favourite highstreet saviours. Without even breaking into a sweat I’ve found the very best workout capsule that meets my budget-friendly brief in Next, Penneys and online mecca, Littlewoods Ireland.

From printed leggings, poppy longline sweaters, colourful sports bras, snug walking coats and beyond, it’s hard not to feel some motivation from these new drops.
