I had the honor of playing dress up recently as part of the Athleta #workinyourworkout campaign. They gave me 2 mannequins to dress, with a bit of a twist, transforming a pair of workout leggings into a work day outfit with just a few minor tweaks. My initial thought was to go for a pair that wouldn’t necessarily be the “easy” choice, by just picking a pair of plain black leggings, I wanted this challenge to exciting and innovative. Not only did I want the pair I went with to be comfortable, but I wanted them to be the star of the show.
I went with the Elation 7/8 Tights, specifically in this print to break up the darker tones, and to give this look a pop. When I tell you that the Elation Tights are so comfortable, that is such an understatement, they feature a high waist band for comfort and fit snug and perfectly. I liked that they give you the feeling of support without being too tight.
With the fall season in mind, I dressed my ladies for a bit of a cooler temperature, keeping warm tones and layering as a must. I loved getting to be super creative and to come up with looks that I would not only wear myself, but something that I would feel comfortable and confident in.
I worked closely with Mark Lee Wolf, who not only helped me really understand what each piece was capable of doing, but took the time to help me understand Athleta’s mission in this industry. To ignite a community of active, healthy, confident women and girls who empower each other to reach their limitless potential. They believe alone we are strong, but united we thrive; bringing this to life through the Power of She campaign.
(P.s. Of course I had to get in the Elation tight’s myself, they are magical)
