With the New Year comes New Year’s resolutions which often tend to involve some sort of healthy living. With that in mind, we’ve taken some key wardrobe staples including tailored pieces and a casual sweat with jewelled embellishment, and matched them with four styles from our SS16 collection to help embrace this season’s athleisure trend.
So whether you’re joining the gym or just making a few lifestyle changes and want to incorporate sporty influences, we’ve got the must-have looks to suit. And in the spirit of New Year's resolutions, we thought we would ask a few members of the team to share theirs...
Hannah (Digital Marketing Extraordinare) - I want to start making big pots of healthy soups on a Sunday so I can take it for lunch during the week. Healthy and cheap! I’ve been saying that I’ll join a yoga class for years… maybe this will be the year I finally do it!
Jamie (Web Analyst Wunderkind & Founding Member of office Green Tea Club) Condense gym workouts (which will probably involve less rest periods and less convos!) #GTC
Nude hues are on-trend this season and Cowley Faye and grab bag Miss Collins are the perfect combination to help finish off that athleisure look. Paired with a statement skirt and embellished jumper, Cowley Faye will offer a subtle sporty cue, while Miss Collins has enough space to ensure you have all your essentials.
Taking on the innovative knitted trend within footwear, Glove Glitter provides a feminine take on athleisure. The black and white knitted upper compliments the rubber sole giving the best in barefoot comfort. Mix this slim profile with a tube skirt and oversized jumper for a comfortable casual look.
Tom (Operations Maverick) - I want to gain a road cycle racing licence so that I can start racing in proper competitions! And also eat a bit healthier, so that I can go quicker on my bike!
Jessica (Junior Visual Merchandising Visionary) - My 2016 New Year’s Resolution is to complete The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in under 12 hours. Hopefully it will inspire me to take part in the National 3 Peaks Challenge in 2017…
Switch up your office look with our sports inspired loafer Coll Island. A cute slipper cut has been combined with a cupsole for an eye-catching twist on a classic. Pair with soft greys and whites for a statement style.
Office chic has never felt so comfortable. Mixing traditional tailoring with athletic influences, Damara Rose teams classic brogue detailing with a sports inspired sole. Add our shimmering shoulder bag Thirlby Heat into the mix and you’ve got the perfect outfit to take you from the office to the gym.
Natalie (Men's Visual Merchandising Marvel) - Outside of work I want to start something creative, perhaps a side project or just more time doing what I enjoy most. Life is too short after all!
Matt (Assistant Master of the Web & Fellow #GTC Founding Member) - To get back into more team based training – kickboxing etc - drink regular green tea (decaf) and do more explosive kettle bell workouts!
