I only have one pair of cycle shorts.  I adore them but realistically I would prefer to substitute them for a pair of track shorts.  The trend is worth examining as it is about proportions, matching a more fitted bottom with a more relaxed top.

This look is years old, even back to Princess Diana in the 90’s, and now championed by the likes of Hailey Baldwin (who is a generation younger!).

With no end in sight to our working from home and little or no necessity for formal wear, it is worth finishing off your active-wear outfits properly.  Be it with a fresh pair of trainers, an appropriate bag, sliders or the best sweatshirt you can get your hands on.

So, I want to share some fantastic t-shirts, sweatshirts and sliders with you.

The luxe hooded top has become way more useful than any blazer and it is definitely worth spending money on. I am saving up for the Raey one

For shorts, check out Freepeople, I adore the simplicity of their taupe pair.  The hot pink ones are from Myprotein.

If you prefer a longer length check out Varley. 

My favourites are from Lululemon; they are the most slimming and the perfect length.

You can check out PrettyLittleThing for boyfriend t-shirts, at £10 they are a real bargain.

We11done is as good as Balenciaga but at a fraction of the price and their hooded tops in pink and black are on sale at Farfetch.

Reserved has a wonderful edit of well priced cotton hoodies in wonderful colours.  I am also a big fan of PacSun and their eye for sweatshirts is spot on.  H&M also has loads of great pieces worth checking out.

I bought the Nike react trainers above, they are super lightweight.  I spotted them at Office 

Balenciaga have also reissued their slides in so many divine colours but I do find Nike Benassi sliders truly comfortable to wear day to day.

I have the Jacquemus basket on my Wish List.  I love the colour ways and the fact that it has a longer strap so you can wear it cross body, but the simple Loewe one is also on my radar.

I also love the Kassel Edition clutch bags.

My top tip is to keep it simple, plump for a colour scheme and stick to it. This makes mixing and matching so much easier.  For me, this season it is shades of blue and navy.
