The new year is the perfect time to start something new, and what better than focusing on a healthier lifestyle? Some cute athletic gear is ideal for giving you the motivation to hit the gym and stick to your plans. And with athleisure you can even wear it out and about too! The outfit in the snap above is the perfect balance of pattern and neutral, and some cute specs would be a great finishing touch.

The Savannah 2249 in matte white would be perfect with this look and would bring out the monochrome elements. With their slight rubberized finish these frames have great grip for when you’re sweating it out, but they’re stylish enough to be worn all day. The rounded frame looks great on all face shapes and isn’t too harsh, while the cool two tone design keeps them looking fresh and original.

This grey-blue outfit would be perfect for hotter climates or if you don’t want to be too covered while you’re sweating up a storm. It’s also perfect for lounging around the house, which you’ve totally earned after all that working out! The neutral blue colours are great for any skin tone and super easy to wear, so why not a pair of cute specs to match?

The Savannah 8121 in navy on transparent would tie in nicely with this look and any casual outfit. Navy makes a nice not-so-neutral neutral colour since it’s not as plain as black or white, but not too over the top either. These have a rubberized coating meaning they wont slip around too much and the wayfarer style is easy to pull off.

This all over dusty pink look is perfect for cooler days when stepping out of the gym in your work out gear is a tad bit chilly. This is perfect for throwing on over the top to keep a bit tostier whilst also rocking the athleisure trend.

The Antares 9116 is great for the warm down with it’s oversized round lenses and cute mottled pattern. They come in 4 colourways so there’s sure to be one you like, my favourite is the purple. They’ve got some added detail on the temple and they’re just right for casual to formal looks.

This pattern-on-pattern look is super girly with it’s all over floral. If you want to be a champ in the gym but keep it feminine this is ideal, and there’s no reason your specs can’t be cute a girly too.

The Savannah 8122 in pink is perfect for this look to add a barbie-pink finishing touch. The frame is not too big so it won’t dominate your features, but the colour is sure to make you stand out. They have a rubber coating so they wont move about, allowing you to focus on building those guns!
