Hey friends, happy Easter weekend! I have a 3-day weekend and I’m pretty stoked about it. I’m heading down to do some shopping with my day off today and will be reporting back soon!! :)
Here’s what’s new in the fitness fashion world lately:
Lululemon is picking up the pace lately with pretty colors and interesting styles. These cyber jungle hero inspire tights (only available in Canada for the moment) are a fun change of pace.
On that note, I’m curious what else we’re going to see in this new color, jungle (on reversible WUC here). It’s nice to see some pretty greens popping up, since lulu is usually quite stingy with greens. P.S. Another color I’m excited to see coming back: deep zinfandel!
For the first time ever, you can now get a true black swiftly in both short and long sleeve lengths. They’re already quite popular and are selling quickly. The other most popular item this week is also in this photo: the rio nights speed shorts. They are completely sold out online, so you’ll have to hit up a store if you want to get your hands on these. I’m hoping the store I’m going to today will still have a few pairs for me to choose from. [Photo via Lululemon Arlington store]
This catsuit, one the other hand, is definitely not getting the rave reviews of the other styles in this post. :) You’ve gotta have a special kind of boldness to pull this one off.
Sweaty Betty recently released a new yoga retreat capsule. My favorite style from the drop is these navasana capris. The pattern reminds me a bit of lululemon’s pigment wave and pigment wind, except I really like SB’s purple and teal take on it. I also like the back seaming details, and SB’s yoga fabric is to die for. I ordered these–will report back!!
I’m also oddly fond of these haven retreat flare pants in this bold print, but being a shortie, flares are generally a no go.
Sweaty Betty is doing a friends and family 20% off event right now!! Use code SBFAMILY. The code is only valid until the 28th, so you’ll have to make some decisions quickly!
Lorna Jane released a handful of items in spots, like these spot me 7/8 tights. I actually kind of like the black base with plain white spots. I’ll be heading to the LJ store to see if I can try these on today, along with the matching bra.
Bandier dropped a new (exclusive) collaboration with fitness superstars Karena and Katrina of Tone It Up. There are only a handful of styles, but they’re pretty cute and fairly reasonably priced as far as high-end stuff goes. The collection is already selling through fast!
Also from Bandier, I’m liking these new vigor capris from Vimmia.
Btw, Bandier also has a sale going on right now, featuring Alo, Vimmia, Koral, Splits59, Alala, and lots more. The Nesh cashmere sweater I’ve featured here is marked down, however as of this writing, only size L is left.
Alala dropped another dose of their spring collection this week featuring a new new color, saltwater. It’s a just-barely-blue, as the name implies. I’m usually not big on the pastels, so thankfully I’m not as tempted by this new color as I was by their last couple of uploads.
I’m intrigued by this new style, the edge tights. Hopefully all the seaming details would still be comfortable and out of the way. I’m wondering what other colorways will pop up.
C38 also got the new signature tank, which I haven’t seen anywhere else. It’s simple but potentially promising basic tank, so I’m wondering if we’re going to see some other colors in this one.
Lastly, the award for most unique new styles this week has got to go to No Ka’Oi, a new Hawaiian-inspired activewear brand now stocked at Carbon38.
