The rise of fashionable, tight fitting activewear has quickly become a wardrobe staple. Whether you’re a keen gym goer or just want to stay on trend with the celebs this summer, there’s something to suit everyone out there on the high street in Leeds.

Cut-out tops have been showing up on red carpet A-listers for months, so it was only a matter of time before they showed up on bikes and treadmills, too. Look out for 90’s inspired trends, mesh overlays and colour blocking, mixed with chic laser-cut necklines and intricately designed backs on your go-to workout tops.

The matching tracksuit is also making a comeback – well not quite, but coordinated gym wear is certainly making an appearance.  Printed sport bras with matching leggings are the new look — and throw on a zip-up jumper for good measure.

M&S have developed this range of fashionable activewear with a subtle tropical pattern running throughout the range, letting you chop and change your favourite styles.
