The 50 best summer sports gear

Stella McCartney swimsuit net-a-porter.com, £70 The beautiful and the practical rarely co-exist when it comes to 'proper' swimsuits but this jungle-green number is on the money in all respects.
Newton Terra Momentus newtonrunning.co.uk, £120 Newton makes 'guidance' and 'performance' trainers, depending on your ambition. They provide the much-needed bridge between high support and barefoot running.
Beach Bat and Ball Paddle set amazon.co.uk, £3.95 You don't need a beach for a great game of bat and ball. By all means tell the kids this one is for them, but they'll cotton on when you want a turn.

Whether you’re hitting the hills, pounding the pavement or firing up for the Games, Sophie Morris chooses the most stylish and practical kit to help you get in shape
