The fitness industry is booming, and> with that more and> more brand>s are launching activewear collections.  Most high street stores now have gym wear available.  So it was no surprise when Apricot Clothing launched their own range, Apricot Life. If you are looking for a more affordable range of stylish practical athleisure wear then Apricot Life is for you.  They have a small collection of tops and> vests perfect for hitting the gym.  And comfy sweats great as a cover up or just a lazy day on the sofa!  The pastel colours offer a feminine look, and> the range mixes performance fabric with stylish designs.

I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to test some of the Apricot Life range recently.  And I was really impressed.  I selected the black and> pink leggings, and> a matching Pink Mesh Vest.

High performing and> Stylish…

Apricot Life LeggingsThe leggings are a great fit and> quite flattering with the illusion paneling. They are comfy to train in, and> as with all my favourite leggings the high waist makes sure they stay in place.  So great for high intensity training, or a weight training session.  They also pass the squat test and> don’t go to see through.  Massive Bonus points.

Apricot Life LeggingsThey also have a small pocket on the back for essentials, a key whilst out running for example.  Although sadly not big enough to squeeze your phone in which always disappoints me slightly.

Adding a little style and> cover up…

Apricot Life VestThe Mesh top is a perfect fit albeit a little see through for me.  Definitely need to make sure you have a nice sports bra on underneath, not just any old number.  However the mesh design does keep you cool when working out.  If like me you get a little sweaty when training but don’t like to be in just a crop top/sports bra this could be a great option.

One thing that I love about Apricot Life is the price.  in a world of luxury sportswear they provide a stylish look for a great price.  They pass the gym test but I also wouldn’t be ashamed to be seen in these around town.  They look great with a leather jacket thrown over them for days out.
