Activewear for the Active Mum (but don't worry, you don't have to actually be a gym goer)
Posted on October 08 2020
Gone are the days of reserving activewear solely for the gym. It’s humble origins as an essential but definitely-not-favourite component of a gym kit are long forgotten. This unassuming category of clothing has become a serious fashion statement, and we are here for it.
The choices are endless: splashes of colour, strategically placed panels, varying waistlines and lengths have made leggings an investment piece that offer freedom of styling.
Packed with personality, loaded with attitude and a secret weapon for shaping and sculpting, Macaw activewear is serving up go-to pieces that mums can look good in and feel great about.
How to wear leggings for different occasions
The best thing about leggings is how versatile they are. The simplicity of the design means they can be dressed up or down to suit just about any occasion.
Macaw designs sculpt the figure, creating the perfect foundation for a great ensemble. The rest is up to you.
Skip the double espresso and opt for a double dose of athleisurewear. A matching sports bra and leggings set is a great way to inject some colour and energy into that morning routine.
Mid-week lunch dates
Macaw’s selection of activewear in pretty pastels blend the concept of mum-on-the-go with lady-who-lunches. Give yourself permission to take a break and make a lunch date that doesn’t require a wardrobe change. Simply soften your look by opting for activewear in rose or lavender hues.
Edgy evening chic
The versatility of leggings is truly demonstrated when they’re teamed with a smoky eye, leather jacket and a pair of heels. The stress of last minute dinner dates is a thing of the past. Slip into a pair of sleek dark leggings paired with a pristine white t-shirt and shrug a biker or bomber jacket over your shoulders. Explosive statement sneakers or stiletto heels both work as finishing touches that add a little extra flair.
