Summer has finally arrived (hooray!). And with Summer comes the season of parties, BBQ's and Christmas lunches, but it also means keeping on track with your fitness plans might be a little harder — right? That's where bright, new workout wear and fitness gadgets come into play. There's lots to get your hands on this month, from new swimwear, healthy food to clever watches, not to mention, a few ideas for Christmas gifts, too!
If we could award a style the official Summer shoe, we'd pick a pair by Ancient Greek Sandals. Handmade in Greece by local craftsmen, every owner will testify that they only get better with age.
The sandal brand with a cult-celebrity following has just released a first look at its Resort 2013 line-up, which is dropping in stores this month. The collection stays true to the brand's laid-back luxe ethos, with signature winged styles sure to be a sell-out. And with prices starting at $190 and stockists all across Australia and online, there's really no reason you can't own a pair this season. Step inside for a first look at the Ancient Greek Sandals Resort 2013 collection.

Carrie Bradshaw once lamented she’d literally be ‘the old woman who lived in her shoes’ after dropping a house-deposit sized amount of cash on shoes over a life time. And with designer footwear regularly costing in the four digits, we can relate.
Shoes are definitely an investment (you don’t need us to tell you that!), so we’re setting straight how to properly look after those new babies after you buy. From the two things you should always do before you wear a new pair, to how to properly store them, click into the gallery to find out the ten mistakes you’re making that are ruining your shoes (and your bank account).
Here's the most wearable trend we've seen in seasons — the fashion pack has confirmed that yes, sneakers are totally appropriate outside of the gym. While the hi-top styles and the sneaker wedge have enjoyed their moment, it's the humble running shoe we're talking about today.
Athletic influences are nothing new in fashion, and although we're waiting for 'sports-luxe' to be acknolwedged by Oxford dictionary, collaborations between Adidas and Stella McCartney, and the distinct sporty design direction we're seeing from high fashion labels like Alexander Wang confirm it's a trend with serious staying power.
Blogger, Zanita Morgan made us sit up and take notice with this outfit (pictured), but she's not the only one getting athletics-inspired. In fact, you've probably noticed the Nike tick making chic appearances off-track, and wondered how to try the trend at home — which is where we come in. Head into the gallery for 12 cool ways to wear the season's most comfortable fashion trend.
We're only days away from Summer (yippee!), so while we might be counting it down there's still much to be excited about in November. The health and fitness brands released a range of products that are anything but dull and boring. Think bright, colourful fitness gear that will motivate those moves, foods to keep you feeling good on the in and even better on the out, and it seems Lorna Jane is already one step ahead with the release of her 2014 fitness diary. So without giving it all away, step inside and shop away.
The '80s neon trend has made a huge comeback in the recent months making it almost impossible to walk into a gym without a sighting. But there's no complaints here. The bright, electric trend makes working out fun, but if you're going to add a pop of colour to your gym gear then there are a few rules you might want to follow. Don't double or triple up on neon, you don't want to look like your favourite yellow highlighter. Keep things simple like wearing a neon crop top underneath a white tank or an all black and white outfit with bright shoes. So who's ready to love colour as much as we do? Dance your way inside for 10 ways to go neon.
White sandals are Summer's answer to ankle boots: versatile, easy-to-wear and armed with the ability to dress down even the most out-there attire for day. Despite their timeless appeal, white shoes are having a moment right now, adding the final touch to the season's white-on-white ensembles.
Birkenstocks and two-strap sandals are at the forefront of the trend, while dainty slip on sandals and strappy numbers are still a classic option. With everyone from Senso to Balenciaga serving up white flat sandals for Spring and Summer, head into the gallery to pick a pair to step out in now.
