How to style Maternity Activewear

There’s no denying it, leisure looks are here to stay. Whether you’re running errands or to the gym Legoe is making it easier to master the art of athleisure styling whilst pregnant with your new additions to our Maternity Activewear collection.

Taking cues from timeless sportswear style icons, we have put together a capsule of essential pieces designed to move with you throughout all stages of pregnancy and beyond. With a palette of dusty blues and heather greys all designed to style together in tonal looks effortlessly. Made from buttery soft jerseys and lightweight sports ribs for all-day comfort at all stages of motherhood.

In celebration of the launch, we’re sharing our favourite tips for creating elevated everyday maternity activewear looks.

Rule of Thirds

Layering is the key to creating a put together activewear look (pregnant or not!). There’s a theory in styling called the three piece rule and it is one of the simplest tricks to make your maternity sportswear look more intentional and elevated. It really is as simple as ensuring your outfit has 3 key elements - for example, adding a Sweater thrown around your shoulders to a Bike Short or Yoga Legging and Tee look. Or an Open Zip Sweater over a Sports Crop and Leggings. The third item of clothing frames the look and creates a sense of polish with minimal effort.


Bump Friendly

The focus for our maternity activewear capsule was pieces made for everyday movement - blending comfort and style throughout all stages of pregnancy. When it comes to shopping for maternity activewear our biggest advice is looking for pieces that will see you through the different stages of your growing bump, and even afterwards with nursing-friendly features.

We were sure to include details like fold down waistbands in our Yoga Short and Legging styles so that they can be worn high-waisted/over the bump or folded down for a mid or under-bump fit. And pieces like our Collared Zip Up/Down Top with 2 way zip to wear in multiple flattering ways throughout the pregnancy and nursing. And most of all, ensuring comfort is key with a buttery soft 4-way stretch jersey that's made to move with you for all-day wear.



The final touches make all of the difference when styling leisurewear. Items like luxe socks, a crossbody bag and on-trend sneakers elevate the look and add an element of style to even the comfiest activewear ensembles. We styled ours with a grey marle ribbed sock and classic New Balance sneakers to suit the tonal grey/blue hues throughout the collection.
