Junior Fashion Editor Alexandra Venison answers this week’s most pressing sports-inspired style questions. From new gym gear to get your heart racing, to office-appropriate trainers and simple sports luxe has never been so easy.  

Q. I’m not going to lie I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a gym bunny, but I do try my best to work out as often as possible. My top motivation is cute gym gear. I love Nike and all the other go-to brands, but are there any new ones on the market I don’t know about?

A. If you haven’t taken a visit to thehotboxkit.com then you are missing out! Based in Dubai it stocks a range of different brands that cover all you will need from yoga to running. The best part are the range of prints, colours and cuts that will get you excited for the gym in no time. Deliveries take two-three working days and all orders over Dhs350 are free so there’s nothing stopping you!

Q. My job entails running around all the time, the only problem is that it’s often in an office. Most people are relatively smart casual, but I don’t want to stick out like a sore thumb rocking up in full sportswear. Is it acceptable to at wear trainers in an office environment?

A. Of course you can wear trainers; there are so many styles on the market at the moment. You will easily find a pair to suit your style. If you are looking for something that’s a little less sporty, then opt for a plimsoll style. We love these snakeskin Vans for instant comfort and glamour. On the other end of the spectrum look to the classics like a printed pair of Adidas Originals or Nike high-tops, all you need to do is throw on a pair of skinny jeans and a blazer and you’re good to go.
