Autumn is barely over, but the focus is swiftly moving onto Christmas and all that the season brings with it. The blogosphere and webosphere are already churning out the gift lists for runners, yogi’s … any and everyone in your life, basically.
According to the Telegraph, we’ll each spend £84 on ourselves when out shopping for others, with the average shopper expected to spend £475 on gifts this year! So here is my take on the trends that may well be popular for 2015:
1. Upgrade Your Tracker
Fitness trackers themselves have already proven to be popular but now it’s all about the customisation. I myself have been through them all and even wrote a post on How To Make Fitness Trackers Work For You. I love these ribbon bands which fit a fitbit (cos it’s actually just a little nugget in a band itself!).
2. Wear The Right Gear
Smart Clothing is a thing. You didn’t know?! Neither did I! The most notable on the market right now is the The Polo Tech Shirt from Ralph Lauren.
I’m not sure it’s available in the UK yet but there are lots of lesser known brands out there if you’re willing to look for them!
Another product I love in this category is by Mimo; a onesie type outfit for babies which monitors sleeping, breathing, body position as well as allowing you to listen in on your baby!
I love the Smart Home apps and appliances that are out there too; controlling my kettle from my bed sounds like bliss to me! Anything to save me an extra couple of minutes in the morning!
3. From Barre To The Barre
My style very much is from barre to bar already (read 24 hours in… here). Athleisure is a thing too these days. Everyone is quite happy to wear their comfy, stretchy pants to the supermarket as well as to class!
Some of my favourite places to stock up on items for the winter are:
4. Here Comes The Hot Stepper
With this cold chill in the air, it’s really useful when our outfit helps to keep us warm, right?! Heat technology is massive right now with many popular brands bringing out pieces especially for the weather. Here are a few notable choices:
5. Flashing Lights
Lights and reflectivity should be your number one priority if you or your friends / family will be out on the streets during the dark evenings. The amount of things you can get are limitless – torches, heel spurs, bags, hats, trainers…
