LUXE WORKOUT WEAR

Stylish sportswear is finally coming to the forefront, with designers spotting that women want high fashion, as well as performance. Recent runway trends took much inspiration from the track, which luckily for us, means workout wear is in the spotlight, providing the perfect excuse to invest in some on-trend pieces. If you’re lacking motivation, these style picks will have you racing to get active.
Lucas Hugh

Since looking great, often equates to feeling great, choose Lucas Hugh, for the ultimate in luxury sportswear. A current celebrity favourite, sartorially, the Lucas Hugh designs tick every fashion box. Unique prints, breathable panels, featherweight fabrics and sleek contouring give the modern woman exactly what she desires for her athletic wardrobe – style and function.  

We love the Babel Bodysuit, £130, for its beautifully vivid print and ultra flattering draping. Giving the support of a one-piece, it cleverly appears as a chic top, perfect for teaming with a multitude of separates. The Coot Shorts, £110, are your best running partner. The lightweight material and high shine finish fuses a key, autumn/winter trend with practicality.www.lucashugh.com

BEAUTY EDIT: NOT JUST A PRETTY FACE

Of course, we all want beauty products to give amazing results, but for the magpies amongst us, divine packaging often seals the deal. To obtain dressing table-chic, gorgeous compacts, intricate designs and sublime bottles have us begging to purchase.

Create a beautifully sheer, veil of luminosity, by sweeping this soft powder across face and neck, to perfect the complexion. The sophisticated gold compact holds the embossed, pixel design, pressed powder, creating radiance for all skin tones. A matte texture eliminates shine, without dehydrating the skin. 






Le Vernis in Péridot by Chanel
Inspired by the opulence, facets and tones of gemstones, jewels and precious materials. Adorn your nails with the gold and green swirls, metallic sheen and shimmering reflections. Like a peacock feather, the pigment is striking and the colour stays chip-resistant for an entire week.
