We love the feel and look of new workout gear, whether we're lounging about the house or actually doing a workout.
So we're excited to hear about Laura Whitmore new stylish activewear summer range. Launching her second edit for Dare 2b (opens in new tab), the Love Island presenter has helped create a 13-piece collection, which includes sports bras (opens in new tab), statement leggings and jackets. And the best part? Prices start at an affordable £15.

When it comes to style and fit, the best workout leggings (opens in new tab) need to have the right materials and colors - so we love the brand's four-way stretch fabric used in their Influential tights (opens in new tab), which allows for extra flexibility and are even squat proof.
And whether you've signed up for yoga or spinning, the collection's Don't Sweat It medium impact sports bra (opens in new tab) is perfect for sweating it out in the gym, while also feeling supported.

Talking about her second edit for the brand on Instagram, Laura said: "It’s here...my second active range with @dare2b_sports is available NOW! Loving the classic monochrome palette but with a touch of my favorite print - zebra - the coolest animal!"
And it's a zebra-print that graces another key pieces from the colorful line: the Deviation Jacket (opens in new tab), priced at £60, which has been developed in waterproof and breathable fabrics, featuring a grown-on hood and patch pockets.
Laura added: ‘I’m so excited to announce my collaboration with Dare 2b! My Edit is suitable for all types of exercise, whether I’m doing a high-intensity workout at home, exercising live with you all on Instagram, a low impact yoga session or simply taking my dog for a walk in the park."
Sarah is a freelance journalist who writes about fitness and wellbeing for the BBC, Woman&Home and Tech Radar. During lockdown she found her love of running outside again and now attempts to run around 50 miles a month. When it comes to other fitness, she loves a sweaty cardio session – although since she’s been working out from home she’s sure her downstairs neighbors aren’t too happy about it. She also loves to challenge herself - and has signed up to do hiking holidays, intense bootcamps and last year she went on her dream activity holiday: paddle boarding around deserted islands in Croatia. On her rest days, she loves to recover with a simple yoga flow session – the perfect antidote to her active fitness schedule.
