Holiday season is almost here, and we’re guessing that many of you may now be facing the consequences of opting for just a carry-on, rather than splashing out on a hold bag. Sure, that seemed like a fabulous idea to save money back in winter when Christmas had hit your bank account hard… but now you’re looking at your wardrobe wondering just how many outfit changes you really need, and watching “packing hacks” on YouTube.
Fitness clothing might not usually be at the top of your list for the holiday wardrobe — but we’re here to show you why it really deserves a place in your carry-on. Even if you aren’t set on working out in-between the sunbathing, some of these pieces are just cool enough in their own right that you won’t want to step on a plane without them!
What To Wear Working Out On Holiday
Okay, hats off for even having the intentions to train on holiday. We have some killer summer pieces fresh off the rack that’re perfect for warmer weather workouts, and great for giving you that extra motivation to get going — when your kit is this good, of course you’ll want to do laps round the hotel complex to show it off.
We have to begin with our latest training collection for two very good reasons.
Firstly, the gorgeous tropical print was literally created with dream holiday destinations in mind — you’ll basically be at one with the idyllic scenery of your beach resort or island getaway.
And secondly, it’s a perfect solution to limited space in your carry-on, as our Tropical Reversible Leggings give you two outfit options for the price of one.
You can keep it sleek in plain navy, or switch it up with the bold turquoise and purple jungle print — not too hard a decision for a holiday we hope.
The Tropical Crop Top to match makes for one sizzling summer workout outfit. Designed with built-in cups and a great racer-back finish, you can make the most of feeling the sun on your skin.
This draped vest has a super-pretty, cut-away back with a twist detail, providing a lightweight layer of coverage that’ll still allow you to enjoy unrestricted airflow — ideal for when things start hotting up.
It comes in black or a vibrant mint green, which just so happens to look amazing with the Tropical Leggings (and an important factor of packing a carry-on is making sure your limited options can be worn together as an outfit).
Boost Tank and Shorts
Not only will these lightweight pieces barely take up an inch of your carry-on, but Boost is a collection with technical features that’re ideal for keeping up with the demands of a holiday workout.
Crafted with sweat-wicking fabric, the material will help to pull moisture away from your body instead of letting you suffer through your sets with sticky damp patches.
This mesh is also treated with an antibacterial finish to help these pieces stay fresher for longer — perfect for when you might not have instant access to a washing machine after your workout!
And finally, if you (sensibly) choose to do your workout away from the heat of the sun, both the shorts and tank come complete with reflective prints, so you can stay safe and visible on early morning or late night runs.
What To Wear For Relaxing On Holiday
We don’t blame you if you’re leaving the workouts firmly behind on home soil — we still have some great pieces on offer for you to kick back and relax in.
Keep it comfy in these amazing lightweight sweats.
Yes, they’re simple, but very effective too — absolutely perfect for throwing on over a bikini for slightly more coverage on your way to and from the pool or beach.
Designed with super-soft loop-back fabric, they’ll feel so much nicer on than stiff, chafing denim — plus they have an elasticated waistband, with a drawcord for a personalised fit. Treat yourself ladies, you are on holiday.
This tee is another lightweight layer that’d be ideal for wearing over a bikini — maybe when you’ve admitted to yourself (a little too late) that your shoulders are actually, most definitely, burning now.
It’s a bit more special than your average t-shirt too — with a scooped neckline, dropped hem, and burnout effect fabric to give a semi see-through pattern.
You’ll feel totally at ease in these lightweight shorts, they’ve been crafted with stretch yarns and soft loop-back fabric for ultimate comfort.
Plus, with an elasticated waistband and internal drawcord, you can ditch the belt — so that’s one less thing to pack.
They come in black, khaki, slate, or grey marl, so you have plenty of choice to suit your style.
This is one of our bestselling training tops as it’s lightweight and totally breathable — so even if you don’t plan on intentionally breaking a sweat, it’s the perfect choice for staying comfortable in hotter climates.
With a ribbed crew neckline, raglan sleeves, and a marl-dye finish that’s available in a variety of bright colours, this classic top is just as wearable out of the gym.
What To Wear On A Flight
Life hack: if it doesn’t fit in the carry-on, why not wear it on the plane?
(There are limitations to this, it’s probably not advisable to touch down in a Mediterranean country wearing several layers.)
Seriously though, you do want to make sure that you’re really comfy and equipped to deal with harsh air-con when you’re on a flight, which is exactly what the following pieces provide.
This is something totally new for us, and it’s definitely worth a mention. What could be comfier to travel in than a lightweight, oversized cardigan?
It’s the perfect casual piece to see you through the airport stress and onto the plane — it even comes complete with deep pockets, just what you need for keeping your passport and boarding pass close to hand.
These joggers are a great choice, especially when you know you’re going to be on-the-move between terminals, and then sitting for a long time.
They’re made from a soft-touch cotton blend, finished with ankle zips, and will deliver comfort along with a flattering, feminine fit.
Regardless of the legroom situation, you can guarantee you’ll be snug from takeoff to touch down.
You can’t really go wrong with a classic tee, and our Luxe collection offers a quality option.
This is the perfect super-soft top to throw on for travelling — designed with a cotton modal blend, it delivers a regular fit with a crew neckline and subtle tab branding.
Sit back and relax in these soft-touch sweats.
Our cotton-blend joggers have been designed to give a new-and-improved tapered fit, complete with ankle zips and an elasticated waistband for personalised comfort.
They’ve got pockets too, convenient for keeping your tech and wallet safe.
Finish the look with our super-comfy soft-touch hoodie, a great layer for protecting you against drafty airport terminals and powerful on-flight air-con.
Like the joggers from this collection, it’s been tailored for a new-and-improved fit, and is finished with internal fleece for added warmth.
Even if you’re headed for a warmer destination, it’s always good to have a back-up option with you for the evenings.
That should cover the key parts of your holiday packing, with the holiday travel thrown in for good measure too. With our innovative designs, you should be well equipped to tackle whatever you have planned on your trip away — whether that’s running along the beach front… or lying along it.
