* Easy to buy, must-have pieces from adidas x Stella McCartney
* Accessory items for fuss-free workouts
* Chic enough to incorporate into street looks
Back in 2005, before the designer/athletic mash-up became par for the course, Stella McCartney teamed up with adidas in what was then a bold move to up-level activewear.
Hallmarks of her namesake label, like sharp tailoring contrasted with softly feminine shapes, have translated into fashion-forward workout gear that delivers on performance. But it’s not just the 4-way stretch tanks and tech-y print leggings that get all the play – they’ve continued to make sure details matter, too.
Accessory items to make your workout fuss-free, like a punchy, coral-colored media arm pouch or moisture-wicking cherry red wristbands have been given just as much design consideration. Here, find 5 pieces under $50 from the adidas x Stella McCartney line that will enhance your next sweat session with style.
These terry cloth wristbands come in cheerful cherry red, with logo lettering on one, are key to keeping your grip sweat-free. Plus they look pretty good peeking out from your sweatshirt sleeves en route to the gym.
2. Pack Low Socks
High-tech fabric keep your feet cool while also retaining shape. Because there’s nothing worse than trying to workout with sloppy socks that don’t stay put.
3. Media Arm Pouch
Punctuate your sleeve with a pop of bright coral neoprene and run free from a tangle of headphone cords while you’re at it. An adjustable velcro strap keeps the pouch anchored in place, no matter what you’re wearing – or how much you gain in bicep circumference.
4. Workout Gloves
Don’t let a cool chill stop you from heading out for a brisk run. Just gear up with a pair of stretchy, heat-retaining gloves. Access your smartphone screen with touchpoint material on each index finger and stay safe in low light with reflective material on the back of each glove.
5. Adissage Shower Slides
Hit the showers or the street in these grippy, nubby-footbed slides. The bright yellow color also serve as pick-me-up all on its own.
