Whether you’ve traded your work wardrobe for loungewear, given up on real pants all together, or are desperately trying to shed those extra quarantine pounds, activewear has probably become a staple in your daily attire (or taken it over completely.) Plus, considering all the new health and fitness resolutions of the new year, it’s safe to say we are all reaching for those yoga pants right about now. I live in activewear – love its comfortability and flexibilty – and sometimes, surprisingly, I’m even active while wearing it! So, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite brands to help you complete your look, head to hamstrings…
So many women are wearing hats right now, either as a quick hair fix or a stylish accent. Finally, there’s a hat that allows you to style your hair your way and fits super comfortably. The Ponyback Hats stretch fit combines the quality of a high-end fitted hat, with the functionality of a ponytail hat for all hair types from big luscious curly locks to fine tresses, and extensions. The large back opening accommodates any height from the top button to the bottom of the band. When the back opening is not in use, the discrete magnetic seam makes sure the back stays closed to look like a normal fitted hat, perfect when wearing your hair down.
