Life, health, happiness, yoga, style, travel, sunshine and endless possibilities…
As the formerly separate worlds of fitness wear and high fashion continue to collide, the emergence of ‘Athleisure’ (athletic and leisure wear in one) could not make me happier and one brand which is absolutely nailing the trend is Wellicious.
Looking stylish when working out makes me happy and Wellicious, my go-to brand for beautiful and luxurious yoga, fitness & loungewear makes this possible and more (see another article I posted about Wellicious earlier this year).
Wellicious was set up by Heike Schnell with a mission to create ecoluxe performance wear for the growing number of people interested in sustainable, healthy living and getting fit, but who don’t want to sacrifice style for practicality. The Wellicious collection encourages you to feel positive in your own skin, it is designed with versatility in mind, taking you from morning lattes to evening yoga – the clothes transition, making our busy lives simpler. All of the collection is ethically made in Europe from super-soft, natural and organic fabrics and the pieces are perfect for everyday layering.
Three key Wellicious pieces that I cannot live without:
1) The ‘Cool top’ (£45.95)
The ‘Cool top’ is a casual staple which I couldn’t be without. The deep and tight waistband holds it in place when changing postures in yoga or upside down. It is loose and airy with low armholes and thin shoulder straps – it’s the perfect yoga top and also suitable for high impact exercises. The top is also made from 100% organic cotton, so feels soft and luxurious on your skin.
2) The ‘Progress 3/4 leggings’ (£59.95)
The ‘Progress 3/4 leggings’ are stretchy, comfortable and super flattering with slimming contrasting side panels. They can be worn in the yoga studio, on the treadmill or even at brunch – they are so easy to wear. Leggings are the new jeans and this pair should be in very fit fashionista’s closet! Like the ‘Cool top’, they are also made out of organic cotton.
3) The ‘Ease Jumper’ (£109.95)
The hooded ‘Ease Jumper’ is lined with gorgeously soft organic cotton and the outer layer is made from a fine Lyocell & wool mix. The combination of these layers gives the jumper a wonderful luxurious weight and a cosy and warm feel. Of course, it’s great for both in the studio and everyday activities, but it will also become your new best friend for cosy winter evenings. The jumper has a light & sheer fabric for a feminine look and feels smooth to the touch.
Most of all, what I love about the Wellicious collection is that it reflects my lifestyle, meets my needs and makes me feel good. It’s sporty, but not too sporty; it’s chic, but not too chic; and importantly, I never look out of place.
Wellicious represents the modern, active woman and ensures you feel good whether or not you’re working out.
