Introducing Our Latest Active Wear Brand And How We’re Styling Their Pieces From Cardio To Prosecco
COVID really made us all fitness junkies, didn’t it (or not...🤪)? Especially during lockdown with nowhere to go, we turned to Youtube trainers and made our living rooms our personal gyms. Thank god that’s all over cause now that we’re out of that funk, the spin, pilates and barre classes are back on! Sweating it out makes us feel good but who doesn’t want to look good at the same time? That’s where active wear comes in. Functionality is great for our high-intensity workouts but we also can’t help but gravitate towards fashionable athleisure (is that even a word??) pieces. At WYLD, we’ve brought in our favourite active wear brand to Singapore shores and here’s the good news — they are supportive AND still super cute. You can bet we’re not just wearing it for cardio because it’s totally possible to look stylish in sportswear. Bring out the prosecco and celebrate our newest addition to the WYLD fam, dk active. Read below for some inspo on how we take out favourite active pieces from barre to the bar.
DK Active: Sustainable, Inclusive and Stylish Active Wear
Birthed down under, dk active is an Australia-made active wear brand that believes in everything we love to hear: sustainability, inclusivity and totally fashionable. We have to rave about their mindfully designed pieces that support all body shapes without compromising on comfort. Our bodies don’t all move the same but dk active ensures their waistbands are high enough and crops are supportive on the bust (hell yes for girlies with big boobies!) for low to medium impact sports. You can find their sportswear pieces in our store ranging from sizes XS-XXL.
We also gotta give it up for their dedication to an ethical production process. Their active wear fabrics are made from organic or recycled materials like cotton, bamboo and modal for buttery softness without harming the planet. These fabrics still do the job of preventing moisture from getting absorbed so you feel fresh in your active wear.
And we can’t forget how fashionable these pieces are! They come in different cuts and designs including crops, tanks and zebra prints. Gone are the days when sportswear was only worn for a workout. We know you love busting out your biker shorts to run errands so here’s how we style our active wear clothes for a night out, à la WYLD.
From lunges to lunch date
1. dk active Making Waves Crop Sports Bra
2. Staple The Label Celine Pleated Midi Skirt
3. Frankitas Putri S Ikat Clutch - Rose
4. Polymer Clay Earrings
The dk active Making Waves Crop Sports Bra is perfect for those medium-impact workouts. Spin or barre, the regenerated nylon fabric has a good stretch for all kinds of movements. We love the high neckline silhouette and adjustable straps that help to keep the girls in! Of course, we’re here to look cute too and the wave print makes it ultra easy to look good at the gym or brunch.
How to dress it up:
Complement the elegant wave print with a romantic high-waisted pleated maxi skirt for the ultimate girl-next-door look. Complete the feminine ensemble with a statement clutch and matching earrings.
From free weights to Friday night drinks
1. dk active Centre Stage Crop Sports Bra
2. MINKPINK Marjo Wide Leg Jean
3. Staple The Label Stevie Maxie Shirt Dress
4. Frankitas Titin Clutch - Ebony
Square neckline sophistication and wide straps for better support? You gotta love this functional-fashionable top. The dk active Centre Stage Crop Sports Bra ticks all the active wear boxes with its longline cut and wide waistband for added coverage as well as its breathable design made from lightweight recycled nylon. Also, we can’t get enough of that zebra print!
How to dress it up:
Zebra prints can add a funky touch to a night out get-up. Keep it casual and comfy with a wide-leg pair of jeans and take advantage of the versatile Stevie Maxi Shirt Dress that doubles up as a breezy throw-on. Alternatively, the crop looks just as good with a plain or printed kimono. If you’re having a bad hair day after your workout, push it back with a pearl-studded headband to elevate your outfit and still look put together. Add on a monochromatic clutch to match the black and white vibe.
From running on the treadmill to running errands
1. dk active Breakaway Bike Pants
2. Staple The Label Elsie Cupro Shirt
3. Bayou Olivia Sandals - White
4. Nala Hoya Shopper Bag - Jacaranda Pewter
Cycling shorts are super in now, whether for a casual Sunday stroll or lifting 130-pound weights. These dk active Breakaway Bike Pants have a good stretch for squat days and a breathable fabric that leaves no wet spots after a workout. Its buttery soft fabric and high waist band keep your core supported during those ab workouts. The material is also UPF 50+ protected to keep your skin safe for outdoor activities.
How to dress it up:
As seen on Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski, biker shorts seem to be a staple it-girl wardrobe piece. It’s your turn to dress as an off-duty model in an oversized silky shirt over the dk active cycling shorts. Not forgetting a comfy pair of sandals and a trusty tote for a walk about the city streets.
From pilates to pool party
1. dk active Ignite Crop Sports Bra - Khaki
3. Bohème Bamboo Loops With Stone Earrings
4. Frankitas Maren Ikat Clutch - Caramel
1. dk active Ignite Crop Sports Bra - Black
2. Indii Breeze Cotton Drawstring Shorts
3. WYLD Luna Midi Kimono - Mocca Floral Leopard
4. Lo & Behold Vacay Vibes - Blush
5. Baebeeboo Black Glitter Tassel Mask Chain
This dk active crop top keeps you supported in all the right places without the bore of a plain sports bra. We love the twist front that holds the girls together during a workout but it also makes this active wear piece a fashionable out-of-gym top. The Ignite Crop Sports Bra has medium support and quick drying properties that don’t absorb sweat for that undesirable sticky feel. Pair the khaki sports bra with matching tights for a monochromatic set.
How to dress it up:
Keep it cool and airy by pairing the fitted crop with a flowy maxi skirt. Add a little more pizzazz by contrasting the plain top with prints! Accessorise with a clutch and gold hoops for a party get-up.
For a more casual afternoon dip, style the dk active sports bra with lightweight shorts and jazz it up with a patterned kimono throw-over. Let’s not forget shades to beat the blazing sun!
