Net-A-Sporter Launched And It's Filled With Really Cool But Sort Of Expensive Workout Gear
Net-a-Sporter debuted Tuesday into the online shopping world and, as you probably guessed, the site is 1. Net-a-Porter's sister site and 2. dedicated to all things fitness. The site is seriously user friendly, divided into ten sections based on fitness junkies' most popular activities: Après, equestrian, golf, gym/cross-fit, outdoor, run, swim/surf, tennis, and yoga/dance, with sailing and skiing coming soon. The clothes are sporty, chic, and absolutely fabulous, but the price tags may seem a bit excessive for clothing that you purposely wear to sweat in.
If you are already a fan of certain brands that appear on Net-a-Porter — like Lisa Marie Fernandez and Zimmerman swimsuits, Hunter wellies, and Nike Air Max '90s — you'll be delighted to know that they carried over to the sister site. A brand that has surprisingly not made it to the new site is the Adidas by Stella McCartney brand, but you can still score it on the main Net-A-Porter page. This may be the classiest workout gear I have ever seen — most of the pieces featured on the site look far too trendy and chic to wear on a run, IMHO. But with activewear trending on the street style circuit, this really isn't so surprising.
So, to celebrate the launch of the new site, here are nine of the coolest, but most unreasonably priced things on Net-a-Sporter. If you can stomach the price tag, I say take the splurge. This stuff is seriously cute.
1. The Mesh Swimsuit
The mesh detail of this one piece is very trendy.

Honestly, I could get down with this off the green, too.

4. The Shiny Leggings
Shine bright like a black diamond when you're sprinting on the track.

This tennis dress is adorable! I don't play tennis, but I want to take this look to the streets.

8. The Yoga Mat
This yoga mat caught my eye as soon as I saw it. It better do my crane poses for me with a price tag like that though.

9. Floral Print Leotard
This floral print leotard would be perfect in a dance performance — or layered under some high waisted jorts for summer.
