Ladies’ sportswear – fashionable fitness
Sport is becoming an increasingly important part of our leisure time, and ladies’ sportswear garments are therefore among the bestsellers. Sportswear should be both stylish and practical. Bring out your best with Esprit ladies’ sports outfits – and you can look good off the track too!
No limits – with ladies sportswear from Esprit
You already know that streetwear is no good for playing sport, but have you ever considered how your favourite training gear should feel to wear? Well, we’ve thought about it.
These characteristics are important when it comes to ladies’ sportswear
Regardless of the activity – whether yoga, tennis or outdoor running: ladies’ sports fashion must be practical above all else. Because pants that pinch will take the fun out of sport. It goes without saying that your outfit still needs to be super-stylish. Yet it mainly comes down to the features that provide the best support for you:
- comfortable fit
Ladies’ sportswear must be breathable above all, as sweat dries quickest when exposed to the air. This is why many Esprit tops feature mesh inserts, particularly around the back and the arms. This coarse mesh in an activewear shirt is breathable but nevertheless stays opaque. The only more breathable tops are sleeveless tops with straps – with no sleeves at all.
You will understand the need for sportswear to be elastic the first time you run for the bus in a pair of non-stretch jeans. Fabrics that are too rigid do not move with you and restrict your movements, which is why sportswear garments typically feature elastane or viscose blends. So you will know whether you have made the right choice as soon as you start warming up before a game.
Fashion and practicality are both important for women when it comes to sport. From basic tops to reflective leggings, you are sure to find your perfect sports outfit with Esprit.
Stretch fabric is not the only thing that makes your fitness gear comfortable; you also need the right fit: slim-fit is more snug, and a straight fit allows more room for movement, while elasticated waist bands are especially figure-hugging. Your own preferences are what count. Don’t forget the finish though: fabric woven using the jersey method is especially popular for sport, as it stays supple and hardly rubs against the skin.
Hems and internal seams should also be sewn flat for the same reason. This reduces rubbing, and your tracksuit bottoms or ladies’ training jacket will still feel like a second skin even hours later.
Form follows function: the material of choice
Sportswear is typically made from polyester. The reason for this is that polyester is breathable and easy to care for. Absorbed sweat is dried by the ambient air directly between the fibres, making sopping-wet garments a thing of the past.
Whether you choose snug cotton or breathable synthetics, ladies’ sportswear from Esprit guarantees you the highest quality at a fair price.
If the feeling of synthetic fibres against your skin does not suit you, you can, of course, also choose cotton bottoms and tops for sport too. These are especially snug, warm and cosy, but will also draw away light sweat. If you want to practise gentle yoga, however, cotton is the most comfortable material you can wear.
Ladies’ Sportswear Accessories
The ideal sports outfit is minimalist: an elegant smartwatch to measure your biometric data, maybe a bumbag to hold your essentials while out jogging, and of course a stylish pair of sunglasses for clear days. This will help you avoid carrying around any unnecessary weight and you won’t be bothered by any dangling earrings or necklaces.
Should you still wish to jazz up your outfit with accessories, they will need to look the part: a pony-tail under a billed cap and low-cut trainer socks, to show off your ankle bones – that’s fashion for you!
Sporty throughout the year – seasonal ladies’ sportswear
You take your sport seriously – which is why you don’t stop just because it’s gradually turning cooler outside. Esprit offers you the right sportswear for any time of the year.
Spring and summer – it’s time to get outdoors!
The warmer months allow for fitness training in the fresh air. What is most important here is that you don’t overheat, so short sleeves, strappy tops and mesh inserts are a must. Ideally, combine them with thin capri pants and leggings – or shorts, even.
As you will prefer to wear fewer layers (or even show off your midriff) at this time of year, it’s all the more important to combine exactly the right pieces to ensure a cool outfit. You can also create some clever contrasts, with short shorts combined with a hooded vest top, or full-length, figure-hugging leggings teamed with a cropped strappy top.
Summertime is pool time: addswimwear to your beach bag and enjoy a swim when the mood takes you – perfect for the weekend.
Spring and summer are the time for wearing full-on colour. From vibrant patterns to elegant one-tone activewear for sport – a woman’s wardrobe has no limits. Live life in your style!
Autumn and winter – stay warm while you enjoy sport
When the temperature drops outside, it’s either time to head to the gym or you’ll need warm clothing for outdoor sports activities. Autumn and winter are the seasons for hoodies, sweatshirts, long-sleeve active shirts and long-sleeve tops.
At this time of year, a wide variety of pieces can be combined to eye-catching effect. You will most likely be wearing a ladies’ cardigan with a high neck or a tracksuit top over a top and thick bottoms. You should consider, then, what kind of look you want with a fastened or open jacket. Winter is also the perfect time for cosy cotton sportswear, as it is especially good at keeping you warm.
You can show your true colours even in winter. Remember though: not only will colourful ladies’ activewear lift your mood in the darker months, it will also make it easier for drivers to see you while you’re out jogging.
