Having recently bought a few more pieces for my summer running wardrobe and a brand new pair of trainers, I’ve been looking at the pieces I like to wear and realised that I have somehow subconsciously picked things within a certain colour scheme! It made me wonder if anyone else does this or whether colour and style is not so important.
The main colours I’ve been wearing have been purple, pink and orange.
I love wearing bright colours in summer. There’s something about bright oranges and pinks that seem right to wear in the summer months. They also put me in a great mood to get out there! I love knowing that I’m bright and colourful when I’m out and about in the park. Looking and feeling cheery.
My favourite running shoe brand is Brooks. Their support shoes are lightweight and great for over-pronators like me. I replaced them a few months ago, and love my new pair, simply because of the design. My old blue ones went with nothing I owned!
My new orange and purple shoes go with lots of things, and I feel good colour co-ordinating. I don’t really know why!
I’ve also picked up a few shorts from the Nike Factory Store for summer and was instantly drawn to the colours. There are a great range of Nike running shorts on their website too, but do head down to a factory store if you can.
I’ve been lucky enough to find sports bras that match my shorts and tops too. My favourite ones to wear are Adidas Supernova racer bras. They are really supportive and I love the racer back design.
Now whenever I look for running gear, I’m always looking for the same colours- anything that will pop. I think finding gear you love to wear is a great motivator to get out there and run. It’s not really about how you look- more that you love the clothes and actually want to wear them!
Does your sportswear follow a certain colour pattern?
