It’s been about a month since the EMPOWER Vancouver retreat, and I’m still reveling in each and every moment we spent together that weekend. Between the sweat, the coffee, and the community, we also dove head first into style with Lorna Jane, a leading line of the latest and greatest fitness apparel.
We convened in the Lorna Jane Active Living Room for a style session to get fully acquainted with the Lorna Jane message, as well as with how to style and build the perfect outfit for sweaty activities and that perfect Instagram shot.
Janelle, our Lorna Jane guru was first drawn to Lorna Jane after feeling inspired by the brand’s message to empower women to Move, Nourish, and Believe every day. It’s simple – do what makes you feel good on the inside and out, every single day, and do it with like-minded individuals. It’s exactly what our community and the EMPOWER retreats embody.
We then shifted gears into style and how to incorporate style into your active life. Janelle suggested we pair tight pants with a loose top, and vice versa, for a flattering and comfortable look. She also encouraged us to pair printed bottoms with a solid colored top to create more balance in an outfit. And my favorite suggestion of all, try a matching two-piece outfit – that’s right, it’s so on trend!
And then the fun began… The EMPOWER attendees had the opportunity to select different Lorna Jane pieces to try on and then take photos in their favorite outfits.
It was a candy land of fitness apparel in the Lorna Jane Active Living Room. There wasn’t one thing we didn’t love in there, including a baby pink leotard.
Here’s a look into how the attendees took Lorna Jane’s styling tips and put them to use.
The perfect fit(s)
Bring on the prints!
Kusum (left) and Kathy (right) rocked out their printed pants with a vibrant, but solid top. Kathy is sporting the Senorita Tights, and Kusum is rocking the Astro Tights. Two different prints and they both pair so perfectly with the same pink top. A pop of color with a fun print can be everything in a good style photo.
Autumn and Nic teamed up to rock their outfits in front of the camera and show off that you can pair a printed bottom with a solid top and vice versa for a fun look! Autumn is wearing the Nostalgic Legging, while Nic is sporting the Nostalgic Sports Bra.
Hello, matching outfits! I used to have an aversion to this idea and I would pair ridiculous prints and colors together just to rebel. Now, I’m really loving the synchronicity and smoothness that a matching outfit presents, especially in front of the camera. And with prints as cute as this one (Karma Tight and Bra) on Genevieve, you really can’t go wrong!
Everyone at the retreat styled their own outfits and found the perfect fit, colors, and styles to suit their bodies, personalities, and active lives.
