If you liked lululemon’s reflective Black Friday capsule but didn’t love the sky-high prices, here’s a new pair of Nike crops that remind me a bit of lulu’s version. Nike’s are listed as “reflective silver”, though I can’t find any pics that show what the reflectivity actually looks like. These will only run you $85.
Speaking of Nike, these power speed tights have been all over the place on social media lately. The sporty geometry is true to Nike style. They’re available in quite a few colors, though they’ll set you back a cool $150.
One last Nike thing: the metcon 2 has arrived! I love my metcon 1’s (I wrote a full review here), as evidenced by the fact I’m wearing them in like 99% of the pics you see around here or on my Insta. So far, the volt/cool grey above is the only color released for women, and sadly it would only match like 2 of my outfits.
But, it’s not all bad news! If you’re cool with a $170 price tag and a wait of up to 5 weeks, you can now fully customize your own pair of metcon 2’s via NikeID. I’m actually thinking about doing it, since I’m not convinced they’re going to release a new color I absolutely love.
Ever heard of Maaji? I’ve seen them pop up in here and there, most recently at Nordstrom. Maaji’s style is really unique, incorporating over-the-top prints with a bit of a Middle Eastern flair. Here’s their rushed track capris and cyanne forest capris. Unfortunately, it’s not likely they’ll be on my “brands to review” list, because they only come in sizes S, M, or L. If these styles pique your interest, find more Maaji here.
Splits59 released a preview of their new spring collection. True to their style of late, the collection so far incorporate a few high-shine pieces, and a heaping helping of colorblocking. Shown: ryder noir tights and simone block print tights. See the whole spring preview (and preorder, if you so desire) right here.
This week in “totally unexpected brands on this list”, I spotted this seamless streaker hoodie by Brooks on Nordstrom and actually, I think it’s pretty cute! It’s also available in pink and seafoam. It’s only available in S/M/L, but seamless material like this usually runs pretty tight, so my hunch is that a small might also fit an XS.
A couple more notes
Lorna Jane is running a deal this weekend: $30 off on a purchase $150 or more. Use code FRIEND30.
Alala is running a special promo on their powermesh tights. They’re now marked down to $93. These are one of the few Alala pieces I haven’t tried, so I don’t have any feedback on these. Do note that they have an invisible zipper at the bottom, since that could be an issue if you’re short.
