In recent years, I’ve started to become a bit of a crazy flower lady, and that inclination has been sneaking its way into my activewear collection. A well-executed floral print is hard to resist!
I waffled a lot on which print to go with out of Werkshop’s Romance capsule, but out of the 3 choices, I ended up settling on Juliet. I liked that Juliet had the most variety in terms of the flowers and colors used on the print. It’s gorgeous in real life. Leslie of Petite Impact did a review of the Vintage crops if that print is more your speed.
As usual, Werkshop’s fabric delivers on quality. These are fully opaque and the print doesn’t fade when stretched.
Juliet fits the same as my other Werkshop crops. Mine are XS, my usual size. If you’re new to Werkshop, note that they run a bit small, so size up if you are in between sizes or if you don’t want a compressive fit. In my opinion, the XS fits similar to lululemon’s size 2 bottoms. They’re tight fresh out of the package but conform to your body after you’ve worn them a few times, but they never bag out.
I wear my Werkshops to just about anything. They’re stretchy enough to be comfortable for yoga, but compressive enough for a run. I wore almost this exact outfit (except for a different pair of shoes, which didn’t match at all, hah) for a 5.5 mile trail run last weekend and they were perfect. I’ve recently discovered they’re a bit slippery for my aerial silks class, but that’s pretty much the only thing I’ve found where they don’t quite work. Since the print doesn’t really scream “fitness clothes”, you can even get away with wearing these with a dress and tall boots.
The print is a mixture of both dark and delicate feminine colors: mostly purples and pinks with a couple flecks of green. Overall, it’s a bit more purple-toned in real life than it appears on Werkshop’s website. I like to wear these crops with dark tops best; they pair beautifully with dark shades of pink, purple, and blue.
Welcome to my Werkshop family, Juliet! ;)
P.S. If you’re a Werkshop fan, I hope you didn’t miss this preview of the Enchanted Forest collection coming soon!
