Step aside, Lululemon. Online luxury fashion retailer Net-A-Porter has launched a sportswear store, Net-A-Sporter. The catchy, cutely christened new site offers 37 brands for looking gorgeous while playing tennis and golf, yoga and dance, running, swimming and surfing. Brands include Weargrace, Bodyism, MONREAL London, and L’Etoile Sport, Adidas by Stella McCartney, Splendid and Nike. Zimmermann and Lisa Marie Fernandez also feature exclusive swimwear for the online site. Check out the video above for some inspiration.

Hitting the gym in sweats and giant t-shirts is a thing of the past, and I love the option of sportswear that says game on. Net-A-Sporter offers what you need to look sharp while staying fit on a luxury level. A $470 Monreal London stretch jersey jacket may be a stretch for some sportswear budgets, but there are many price points and the choices include unique pieces, like this Live The Process Satin-paneled Stretch hooded cape.  Net-A-Porter president Alison Loehnis describes the new line as ‘après sport,’ perfect for going from a workout or class to meeting friends and running errands. Although I have never been of fan of living in one’s workout wear, the choices at Net-A-Sporter are too cool to resist. The various lines have color blocking, graphic prints, cutouts, mesh, stretch jersey and bold silhouettes that are sporty-cool and perfect for busy schedules.

My personal favorites are the Bodyism I Am Curious printed stretch capri legging, the Live The Process sports bras, including this Floral-print stretch jersey one, and the Weargrace Sari folded stretch-jersey shorts. Whether you are Sporty Spice, loving to look the part, or are into really getting your sweat on, check out Net-A-Sporter for a little motivation to get going in a gorgeous way.
