As we bask in Singapore’s much-loved eternal summer, we’ve come to know that activewear takes us far beyond a workout. Leggings, biker shorts, and sports bras are not only the stars of activewear, but pieces that can easily be dressed up or down. Add a blazer to your legging-sports bra combo and get ready to hit the streets, or pair your stylish sports bra with a set of cigarette pants, and you are prepared for a night out. With versatility as its redeeming feature, activewear is a closet essential.
However, much too often we find ourselves making fast fashion purchases, each one a further detriment to our planet. Read on for the sustainable activewear brands that are making sure we look and feel good.
