when you work in the fitness industry and have a love for fashion and personal style, sometimes you have the fortune of being introduced to some new athletic wear brands that you can’t help but share with everyone you know.
recently my friend natalie put me in touch with her friend caroline, the owner and designer of chichi active. designed and produced in los angeles, chichi (pronounced “she-she”) focuses on creating active wear that fits into your daily lifestyle. because if you’re going to run around in your workout outfit all day, you might as well look chic while doing it, ammiright? one of the things i love most about the line is the fact that everything is neutral and can mixed and matched with each other. similar to how you style your regular clothes, i’m a firm believer that putting together cute workout looks will not only motivate you to actually, you know, work out, but more importantly will leave you feeling comfortable, confident, and chic not only in the studio on saturday morning, but well into the shenanigans that happen come saturday night.
when i saw the adorable lace detailing on these demi leggings, i was completely smitten. i mean, i’m a sucker for anything overtly feminine (and yet, slightly sexy). they are the quintessential double-duty garment, made from moisture wicking fabric, they ensure you’re not a hot mess after an intense workout, while the flattering cut and lace applique make them the perfect black pant for throwing on under a tunic or oversized sweater and heels for a cool date night ensemble.
