New year, new you, right? And we all know that means there’s a whole load of New Year’s resolutions to be made. One of the most popular resolutions for people across the board is to be more active, whether it means starting up at the gym, taking up yoga classes, or developing a morning jogging routine. So, along with this comes the need for a cute new active fit or two, just to keep the motivation strong, of course!
While I have a gym routine already, my personal goal is to upkeep that existing routine and build on it more this year. For me, that means more regular visits, particularly in the mornings. And to get me pumped for this 2023 goal, I’ve got a brand new gym set from LARi Active that I’ve been obsessing over lately.
LARi Active is a Melbourne-born brand founded in 2020, with the name ‘Lari’ being an Indonesion word meaning ‘run’. Their aim is simple: to offer high performance activewear with a fashion-centric touch, boasting bold designs that are made for a modern lifestyle. Think colourblock leggings, cool casual crops and layering pieces for the cooler weather.
My set consists of the Backtrack Sleeveless Ribbed Hoodie and the Rewind Compression Legging, both in monochrome. These two pieces are fashion-meets-function at its finest, perfectly suitable for any of my gym activities, whether I’m in a barre class, lifting weights, grid training, or jacking up the cardio in a spin session.
The leggings in particular have my whole heart! The overall silhouette is extremely flattering, offering a thick compressing waistband that keeps my waist taught and defined. Its fabrication is the winning feature in my eyes, made of 78% Recycled Polyamide and 22% Elastane. Both looking and feeling ultra luxe, this fabrication offers generous stretch yet a slick and smoothing finish, with a slight sheen and super soft touch. I feel like I can conquer the world in this comfortable pair.
While I’m not normally a street-style, loungewear kinda girl, I’ve really grown to love the urban look of the hooded crop top. This style is a trans-seasonal favourite for those typically rainy Sydney days. During the summer when it rains, it’s always super steamy so a regular hoodie just won’t make the cut if you’re out on a morning run. But the sleeveless make of this design is perfect for keeping you cool whilst shielding your hair from the rain at the same time.
