Let’s face it mamas, there’s nothing like awesome athletic wear to inspire us into working out be it a Physique 57 barre class, Real Pilates class or doing the school run! Yep that’s right, more mamas are looking fabulous in their “Haut-lectic” wear for dropping off the little ones to school.

I have to be honest. I have dropped my three littles off at nursery in my black mesh Michi workout leggings topped with my bright pink Nike running shoes. While I may look like I’m ready to have a good work out session, sadly the real fact is it’s another day in the office for me in my comfort clothes!

Be it comfort or fashion, if there’s a super cute pair of workout leggings waiting for me to slip on, my endorphins automatically jump around with excitement! Workout clothes have reached soaring new heights of sexy and sophistication, which explains the spawning of activewear collections worn by celebs and available in cool and funky boutiques.

There are so many reasons to love stylish workout gear and here are some options to inspire you to get your sweat on from gym to swim – or to simply look good for the school run!
