What it is: gFast colorblock leggings, Gap, from $27

How to wear it: There’s nothing like a little springtime sunshine, and some seriously cute leggings to get me motivated and moving. GapFit’s affordable (and now on sale, too) workout tights are the ultimate in cardio-chic. Pair them with a colourful active top, a cool pair of kicks and a super sporty zip-up and you will be the envy of fitness fashionistas whether you’re in a running group or yoga class.

Why I love it: Getting my workout groove on is always easier when I have something stylish to sport. I love the easy fit of these lovely leggings and the four-way stretch fabric guarantees maximum movement and superior shape retention (a.k.a. skinny looking legs). With a cute colour accent (choose indigo, orange or yellow), a pocket (to keep my change for a post-workout treat) and a sleek “no sheen when stretched” finish, these ready-for-any-activity tights are at the top of workout gear pile.
