If your Yuletide featured more excess (of the booze and snooze varieties) than exercise, getting back to peak fitness - or, at least, shaking off the seasonal slump - is no doubt top of your New Year resolutions list.

And with new sporty offerings landing in the shops throughout the month, now is the ideal time to refresh your workout wardrobe.

Whether you're into monochrome minimalism or pops of neon, pretty prints or retro sweats, this season there's an activewear collection to suit everyone. With these chic pieces you'll be well on your way to a style personal best.

If you need acid brights and punchy pinks to get you out of the starting blocks on dull winter mornings, H&M's new sportswear collection is what the personal trainer ordered, fusing fuchsia, coral and neons on well-cut gym essentials. Olympics host Brazil is going to have a huge influence on fashion this year, with sportif trends and Rio-inspired styles coming to the fore. Get on board now with the Anita Active Sports Bra in a new Brazilian flag colourway.

Boho vibes and Lycra-based fashion don't necessarily go hand in hand, but White Stuff's new fitness range manages to bridge that gap beautifully, blending tile prints and subdued blue and green hues on soft, stretchy fabrics - the perfect recipe for a serene ballet barre session.

For fashion-forward fitspiration, head to Style PB, the site dedicated to sportswear that's both athletically and aesthetically pleasing.

Brands like Varley and Lexie specialise in snazzy patterned leggings, animal prints and trendy tops.
