When I was visiting the adidas HQ in Portland earlier this year, I got to check out some of the designers’ trend boards for the current and upcoming seasons. I found the whole process to be so interesting because many of the same trends can be found across different verticals. When looking at their colors and prints for training apparel for the spring season, it was kind of crazy how those trends are the same for regular women’s apparel, too. For example, bold prints were huge on the Spring 2014 runways and adidas has a great collection of printed tops and workout pants this season. Monochromatic black and white looks are also a big trend for spring and I’m finding that a lot of the adidas workout gear speaks to that, too. I love the adidas pants that I’m wearing here because they touch on a few different spring trends, both black & white and graphic prints. (This pair is awesome, too!)
As for the other products I’m wearing here, they’re all so comfy that I want to wear them whenever I’m lounging around my apartment and not just when I’m headed to the gym. I can’t say enough good things about this 3/4 sleeve top! The cowl neck is so fun that it doubles as a hood and the material is unbelievably soft. I wouldn’t necessarily do heavy cardio in this top (I prefer tank tops when I’m getting my sweat on), but it’s a great top to throw on when you’re going to-and-from the gym or for a less intense workout, like meeting a friend for a long walk through the park.
I’m bummed I couldn’t get a picture of the tank top to show you, but it was just SO cold when I was shooting these photos. I’m wearing the adidas Powerluxe tank top underneath the black 3/4 top and it’s easily my new favorite top for cardio. I never thought that I would like a built-in bra, but I was definitely wrong… I found it to be so much more comfortable and it was kind of nice to just have to wear one layer on the top! I can’t get enough of the small details of the top, either — absolutely love the double straps and back V detail. It comes in a fun green color, too!
