Reds and browns to rock this autumn

Inject some colour into your workout wardrobe with the reds and browns to rock this autumn.

Autumn is inescapably coloured with reds and browns. From the leaves on the floor, to the fire warming our hands, to the heart-warming food on our plates, the colours are everywhere – so why not take them into our activewear, too? Reds, browns, and all the burgundy shades in between are this season’s must-haves – and here’s how you can wear it best.

Leg it

Lucas Hugh kicks off the seasonal colour theme with these Tech Knit 7/8 Leggings in Aubergine. But we don’t just love the shade – with a high, wide waistband and compression knit, these leggings might well be the most flattering yet. A hidden under short, breathable pinhole panels and a seamless design also make these leggings super technical, moving like a second skin and supporting you in the areas that need it most.

Good jeans

Acai’s Skinny Outdoor Trousers in Red might look like your average pair of jeans, but in reality they do a whole lot more. Lightweight, breathable, and offering a DWR water-repellent finish to stop water penetrating the fabric (even when exposed to heavy rain the trousers dry in seconds), the trousers are made for the outdoors. Four-way stretch allows for freedom of movement and the rip-stop nylon even makes climbing or scrambling a breeze. The true definition of fashion and function.

Bag swag

Why stop the colour theme at activewear? This adidas by Stella McCartney bag works as a luxe style piece as much as a functional gymbag. With a detachable compartment for trainers or used gym clothes, and a handy zip pocket that allows you to access your valuables on the go, the spacious bag is the perfect work-to-workout hybrid. The soft, burgundy fabric is a major plus, too.

Au natural

Puma’s latest collab with American artist Naturel results in a tee that is both neutral and wild in its design. Featuring an array of brown tones in an urban camo graphic, and Puma and Naturel branding on the sides, the top can be taken from studio to street in seconds.

Get the gloss

Combine the autumnal colour theme with this season’s other popular trend, metallics. Koral’s Sweeper Versatility Bra in Bordeaux, with an opaque glossy finish, will add a touch glam to any workout. A medium support bra with soft interior mesh and an elastic under band, it provides comfort and support with a second-skin fit. The twist? Made from durable Infinity fabric, water-friendly and chlorine resistant, it works as well in the pool as at the gym. Who said gym luxe wasn’t practical?
