Next up, the easy tank top comes as part of the new importance of the active genre ‘sloungewear’. That’s right, rest and recovery are as important as pounding those weights. The piece is a transitional one with a higher neck and armholes, in soft cotton to promote wellness.
This brings us to our star piece of the season – the wellbeing hoodie. Seriously. Exercise is important but so is recovery and travel. With this layer, choose a long-line silhouette and tech knit fabrics to keep you looking (and smelling) fresh.
