Everything You Need For Your Daily ‘Hot Girl Walk’

The A-Z of putting your best (walking) foot forward.

It’s the buzz phrase garnering momentum from Instagram and Tiktok and quickly becoming a practice enjoyed by many in our weird covid world. The term originated from Megan Thee Stallion describing a ‘Hot Girl Summer’ and has seen many variations. It seems a ‘Hot Girl Walk’ has stuck with many - irrespective of gender and age. A hot girl walk is all about soaking up the sunshine, practising daily gratitude and, of course, feeling hot while doing so!

Sunglasses

With the sun starting to peek through, it is only fitting to don a pair of sunglasses on your hot girl walk.

Not only will they protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays, but a good pair of sunnies will transform any footpath, track or road into your own personal runway.

Oversized sunglasses with a nod to 60’s and 70’s divas have made a resurgence in 2021.

Saint Laurent’s Round Sunglasses are doing just that, adding an instant hit of retro to any look.

The oversized oval-shaped frame certainly makes a statement that is complemented by the sage green lenses.

We’ve seen a specific surge in enlarged aviator style glasses with brow trim detailing.

Dunhill’s Square Acetate Sunglasses nail this trend – anything tortoiseshell and we are sold!

If you are after an understated sunnie, we love Ray Ban’s Hexagonal Metal Sunglasses in gold.

Activewear

The words flexibility, comfort and sporty-chic all come to mind when envisioning gym tights.

They allow you to move about in a breeze whilst keeping you synched and suctioned in.

It’s no surprise that activewear leggings are sometimes subjected to slander.

We are here to steer you away from the cheap and nasty’s and point you in the direction of sporty-chic gym tights.

If you are donning gym tights in warmer weather, one should not look past a tight shorts.

Nike Pro’s are the hallmark of gym tights, and they are available in a huge selection of colours at ASOS.

P.E Nation continues to slay the game when it comes to activewear. They manage to throw playful detailing into their leggings, through bright colours and oversized logos whilst ensuring the leggings are secure in all the right spots.

The Upside’s Jacquard Dance Midi Pants are playful all over available in a creamy lilac and a bright apricot colour.

Bags

Any kind of bag – big, small, cross-body, belt bag or tote will certainly serve its purpose on one of these walks.

If you’re running errands, a tote bag is a must.

We absolutely adore Typo’s The Daily Tote in Denim with an embroidered smiley face plastered across the front.

It’s the ideal bag for carrying groceries, books and the front pocket will house all of your knick-knacks!

If you are craving luxe opt for Jil Sander’s Logo Print Canvas Tote bag adorned with black leather straps.

For optimum movement on a hot girl walk, a belt or hip bag is a fitting option.

Kenzo’s Kampus Canvas Belt bag strikes the difficult balance between cool and functional through the brands signature emblematic tiger embroidered on the façade, adjustable straps and two external pockets.

Alternatively, Fjallraven’s Kanken Hip Bag in pink will provide a divine pop of colour to any walking kit.

Tech Accessories

It is of high priority to have your ears filled with your friend’s voice, upbeat music or an engaging podcast on a hot girl walk.

So, it would come as no surprise to say tech accessories are an absolute necessity!

Bang & Olufsen’s H95 Headphones are the crème de la crème of headphones – noise cancelling, extreme comfort, sleek and stylish.

If the Band & Olufsen beauties are a bit too pricey we love Kreafunk’s aWEAR Bluetooth Headphones.

They’ve been designed to add a bit of spice to your music experience and your outfit.

Cute airpod cases are arguably the most fitting sporty-chic tech accessory to don on your hot girl walk.

Emilio Pucci’s abstract print Airpods Pro case features a detachable neck strap, ensuring your air pods are there whenever you need them.

Drinkware

There is arguably nothing hotter than walking to your local café, enjoying a coffee and keeping the environment free from single-use cups!

That’s why we’ve included reusable cups and glasses in our hot girl walk essentials.

KeepCup is the gold standard of reusable cups. They were the world’s first brand to deliver barista standard coffee cups.

They are available in a huge (and somewhat overwhelming) array of sizes, materials, and colours.

Their 12oz Glass Black Cup is the perfect size for an ever-reliable medium soy cappuccino with extra chocolate powder.

Alternatively, Boohoo’s Bamboo Coffee Cup will do the trick and will spare some coin to spend on much-needed coffee.

If you aren’t in need of soul and temperature warming, T2’s Stainless Steel Flask is the perfect accessory to cool you down.

It’s fit with an inbuilt tea infuser for all your iced tea needs.

Jackets

We understand that to get some of you out of the house, it is an absolute must to feel toasty warm.

If that’s the case a puffer jacket will work just fine!

Huffer’s Track Puffer Jacket in Spectra will certainly stop traffic; it’s bright yellow, in a boxy cropped fit and insulates your body temperature – what more could a girl want!

Even if you’re not worried about the chill it’s still off-putting to get walking in sub-par weather conditions.

We’ve included an extensive selection of windbreakers and spray jackets to ensure everyone is protected from every element, always.

Gorman is notorious for its bold, geometric, and striking spray jackets. We love the Seltzer Raincoat and not just because it has a sturdy hood.

If the Gorman number is too much, Silent Theory’s Calypso Spray Jacket will meet all your needs.

It sports functional twin hand pockets and a zip closure hoodie for ultimate practicality.
