SOCHI 2014: OLYMPIC SKI STYLE
Posted on 07 February 2014
For active lovers like ourselves, the Olympic season is a very exciting time. Not only is it a fantastic show of our world's greatest athletes at their peak physical fitness, but it also gives us an insight into how these athletes eat, train and dress for top performance.
However as lovers of both active living and fashion, we have to say the Winter Olympics has it all. Not only amazing fitness feats but fashion feats as well. Ski style is sleek, sophisticated and highly technical. Plus the need to layer gives you so many active fashion options - earmuffs, beanies, scarves...or all of the above!
Here are our top ski style picks designed for performance, comfort and style:
Phoebe Merino Perform Hoodie- Our hoodie is the perfect cover-up to keep you warm. Made of Merino Perform fabric it is a temperature regulator, so it keeps you warm when you’re cold and cools you down when you’re hot. So whether your enjoying cocoa Après Ski style or swooshing down the slopes, you will be super comfy and ultra fashionable. It is also the perfect item to layer under a ski jacket to create a super stylish look.
Lauren Performance Compression tights- Compression tights have to be our go-to ski essential. They have a denier of 70 so they suck you in and keep your legs warm, for no icy chills and a super sleek look! They fit perfectly under ski pants and increase the oxygen to your muscles as you ski. This means no more next day muscle pain (or at least reduced next day soreness!)
Maya Merino Perform tank- Our Merino tanks are the perfect thermal layer option for your ski look. They are temperature regulating, breathable and moisture wicking. So even after an intense day you will still feel fresh.
See you on the slopes!
