I firmly believe that there's nothing that can come between the GTT Team and their athleisure. As much as we love any excuse to dress up, most days in GTT HQ are spend in our favourite leggings and sweatshirts to offer maximum comfort for days spent running around our warehouse getting orders ready to be sent out. And one thing that's come from our love affair with athleisure? We could talk about and trade notes on our most loved brands and styles FOR DAYS! So when the team was asked to choose their favourite pieces from our new Athleisure Sale, of course everyone had something to say about it! Although we've had a tough time narrowing it down, here are some of our current faves that I'm sure will definitely somehow make their way into our wardrobes before the week's out!
When the topic of athleisure comes up in the office, the attention immediately goes to our photographer Yvonne, who's idea of a fun weekend is one jam packed with hiking and exploring, while the rest of us stalk her instagram page safely from our warm beds. To put it simply, the girl knows that she's talking about! And is our go-to if we're looking for advice on what the best leggings are. And her current favourites just so happen to be the Women's Weekend Adventure Leggings from Columbia. Not only are these leggings super flattering and comfortable (Hello, high waist, stretchy fabric and V shaped stitching at the back for a bum sculpting effect!) But they're also ideal for outdoor activities. The Omni-Wick™ technology draws moisture from the body to the surface of the fabric for fast evaporation, while the Omni-Shade™ tecnology protects the skin from damaging UV rays. Plus, that all important pocket for your phone. Really, what more could you need?
When the Drop of Mindfulness brand arrived with us, our feelings towards it were unanimous. The simple styles and neutral colours immediately made us want to start eating healthier and doing yoga in the mornings. I can't explain it. And when a few weeks later, a new collection arrived with us in the same simple, bang on-trend styles but in our beloved pastels? I won't exaggerate here when I tell you that all of our athleisure dreams had immediately been answered. So it's no surprise that the Cora leggings were a firm favourite of numerous members of the GTT Team! Again, the high waist of these leggings draw the eye to the waistline in a super flattering way, while the seamless design creates a flattering, streamlined silhouette. Not to mention, the stretcy, lightweight fabric that makes for maximum comfort! We're obsessed with this style in the more wearable neutral colours, from chocolate brown to a pretty sage green, but how perfect would this powder blue colour be for over the summer?
Can you tell that we're major lovers of Columbia brand? This brand's innovative technologies and functional yet fashionable styles have had a hold on us for months now, but really, can you blame us? The Powder Lite Jacket in Chalk is another style that is loved by the GTT Team (In particular our marketing manager Carmel) for this very reason.The Omni-tech™ techology ensures that this coat is waterproof while still being totally comfortable and breathable, while the 4 way comfort stretch makes for maximum comfort and ease of movement throughout the day. Plus, the light colours of this one are such a welcome change from the dark colours that we're so used to!
You may not know this, but the GTT Team love a good pair of joggers! This style staple has been the ultimate airport outfit, has allowed us to be comfortable while still on-trend (thank you Bella Hadid, for making joggers acceptable to wear in public!) and has gotten us through many lazy Sundays, days where we're just feeling bloated and to be perfectly honest, just a little bit crappy, and days where we may or may not be nursing a hangover. And GTT's very own Lisa thinks she might have found the perfect pair in these joggers from Columbia. Not only is the simple style flattering and wearable, but the drawstring waist and fleece material with 80% cotton makes for maximum comfort throughout the day.
