While they couldn't pack the glorious weather, LA-based activewear brand Varley has managed to bring the laid-back Californian lifestyle to the UK. Using technology and movement-enhancing fabrics, Varley is dedicated to creating cool and functional pieces you'll want to wear long after you've left the gym.

Feel supported in Varley activewear

Made from body-skimming fabrics, Varley sports bras provide a close and secure fit, while its super-sleek tights create a streamlined shape to help you get the most from your movements. Look out for long-sleeved tops in sweat-resistant fabrics that withstand the most strenuous of outdoor workouts. You could also pair one with a denim skirt and tights for a simple weekend look (without the hard work). Layer under a T-shirt with a graphic print of your fave artist - concert merch is a huge trend right now - to relive your festival memories while getting involved in this season's with-the-band look.

Varley: too good to keep for the gym

Varley believes that sportswear should be as stylish as it is practical so keeps its collections up to date with on-trend details like cut outs and sheer panels as well as bold patterns. In a mostly monochrome palette, the label's pieces are easy to mix and match, adding to its effortless LA vibe. We know you won't want to keep this brand under wraps (although we're not sure your running buddies will let you, tbh), and a coffee shop is the perfect setting for a pair of patterned Varley tights with Flashdance-inspired oversized premium knitwear and ballet pumps. After all that chatting we'd accessorise with cake, too.
