Gear Pick: Hey Jo Cassini Leggings

Annie says: Fashion and running doesn't always go hand-in-hand. Black lycra with the occasional splash of fluorescent colour can prove tiresome, and sometimes you feel the need for a bit of style in your workout wardrobe. This is where Hey Jo comes in.

The Cassini leggings range builds the bridge between style and workout kit. There are eight stand-out-in-the street colours to choose from and each is accessorised with gold zip detailing, for a bit of bling in your outfit. The leggings are low rise with a wide elasticated waist band and offer a snug fit with their flatlocked seams and breathable fabric. Made with high performance stretch fabric, they provide light muscle compression, designed to support activity.

I opted for the brightest colour in the range: the ‘Mikado’ pair - or to you and me, bright yellow. The best way to ensure you'll be noticed in the park. The leggings fit well and were ultra-comfortable from the offset. Despite the colour, they were very flattering and forgiving too, providing a slim fit on the legs.

The leggings come out slightly bigger in size so I'd suggest going for a size smaller than you usually would. They're a great option for the gym and yoga - or, as Hey Jo suggest, with a pair of heels for a night out if you're feeling brave.
