I tried on Adanola’s new in section and here are my honest thoughts

It's the athleisure brand loved by Molly-Mae, but is it *actually* any good?

I'll admit it, I can't remember the last time I wore 'real clothes' on the weekend. My current everyday aesthetic is a playful mix of 'Range Rover mom' meets 'being comfortable at all costs' and I probably have more gym leggings than knickers/friends/unread emails.

So, you can imagine how chuffed I was to discover Adanola, the athleisure brand which prides itself on chic basics, oversized tracksuits and flattering gym outfits. So chuffed, I vowed to buy the entirety come payday.

The brand is loved and worn by plenty of celebs, including Molly-Mae Hague, Michelle Keegan and Kourtney Kardashian and honestly, I can't go on Instagram without spotting one of the cult 'ADA" hoodies on a very stylish influencer.

Reader, in short, I just want to wear cosy gym wear all day and Adanola is giving me the goods.

So, in the name of journalism (and my future wardrobe) I tried on some of the new in bits from Adanolato give you my honest and unfiltered opinion. Buckle in.

Note: I wear a size 10 in most clothes and I'm 5'6.


Adanola new in section: Is it actually any good?

Outfit one1 of 3

Outfit one

I am wearing: Lightweight Rib Layered Tee (size M), Track Pants in Black (size M) and Textured Shoulder Bag in Khaki.

I am not normally a low-rise track pants girlie, but I may just be a convert! I love that you can easily wear the trousers super high-waisted or rested on your hips and they are a really good length on me. They are roomy and very comfy - perfect for all your hot girl errands. If I were to be critical? They do make a bit of a sound when you walk.

The white layered racer top is easy to layer with all your activewear. It is a little see-through, but with the right colour bra it's fine.

Then finally, the quilted bag of dreams! It's a great size for my phone, keys, lip gloss and headphones when doing all my very important tasks! (Read: finally sending my Vinted parcels and buying more almond milk).

Outfit 2

I am wearing: Ultimate Long Sleeve Wrap Top in Khaki (size M), Ultimate Wrap Over Leggings in Khaki Green (size S) Adanola socks

I love Adanola leggings (so much, in fact, I wrote about them here) and I always size down and go for a size small. They are so stretchy and flattering whilst fitting properly around the waist and not going baggy around the knees. I love how the leggings smooth over my cellulite - even in this lighter hue. The wrap over waistband is also surprisingly flattering and I definitely want to order some more in this style.

The matching top is well-fitting and definitely gives my boobs a bit of an oomph! Although it's quite cropped and low cut, the long sleeves ensure you don't feel too naked and I'd feel comfortable wearing this to my next F45 class.

Outfit 3

I am wearing: Fleece Gilet in Natural (size M), Rib Raglan Long Sleeve Top in Black (size M), Ultimate Leggings in Black (size S), Adanola Socks.

A moment please for the gilet. This may be my favourite thing from Adanola because I love how easy 'n' breezy it is. Whether I'm WFH or on the way to Reformer Pilates, it just makes me feel instantly x1000 cooler (yet cosy at the same time!). I like how oversized the M is on me and I would recommend going for your usual size.

Then of course the black Ultimate Leggings had to make an appearance - I wear mine every time they're not in the wash. They're perfectly high-waisted, and sculpting and I love the premium finish that makes them feel 'smart' enough to wear them with a nice jumper and trainers for an everyday vibe.

The black ribbed top fits really well and would be a little too tight if I had got the size small. Although it's not as exciting as the quilted errands bag (still not over it!) I will wear this so much. A true wardrobe essential.
