If you're hitting the cardio circuit this season, sports bras will be at the top of your sportswear essentials list. And with the world of fashion colliding ever more with the world of sports, this season we are treated to plenty of innovative sport bras that are fusing fashionable features with high tech functions.

Colour inspired sports bras

Breathe some life into your cardio routine and get inspired by some of the newest colour palettes for gym wear and sports bras. Neon brights are the latest standout shades, and they're the perfect flash of colour to wear beneath a more conservative vest top or sports hoodie. Look to sports bras with colour blocking designs or clashing patterns for an 80s take on gym wear, but seek out pastels and muted tones to stay elegant whilst working out. A plain black sports bra will bring your a-game to any exercise, but choose interesting straps and retro sports logos to nod to the latest 90s fashion nostalgia trend.

Styling your sports bras

Sportswear has slowly been seeping into our everyday attire, and sports bras are an easy athletic touch to add to an array of outfits. Crop tops are still a wardrobe essential, but substitute yours for a sports bra and you will give your outfit a sports luxe edge. Wear your sports bra with smart pleated front trousers and white running shoes for a fashion-forward feel, or team it with tailored jogging bottoms and a wool coat for a streetwear vibe. To stay on trend this summer, wear your sports bra underneath a pair of denim dungarees, and finish the look with french braids for a grunge touch.
