Multitasking Fashion

You’re up for a day hike, but you’ve also scheduled a mani-pedi and cocktails with friends later in the day. Your weekly hoops match with the guys is scheduled right before your favorite happy hour. Saturday Pilates class in the park is the same day as that picnic in the park, and your next tennis match is scheduled right before teatime at The Brown Palace. In Colorado, there is no time to run home to change when outdoor exercise and adventures coincide with pampering, picnics, tea parties and a very, busy social schedule. Outdoor apparel brands understand this fashion dilemma and strive to serve double duty. By incorporating cutting-edge fabrics and technologies into multipurpose stylish designs, they make the transition from outside adventures to inside activities (almost) no sweat at all.

Ready to Romp

Making fashion a whole lot easier, Vuori’s best-selling women’s shorts are now available as a tanked romper.

Haute Statement

A mix between a jogger and a legging, this hybrid from the Kadyluxe Galaxy Collection is an easy transition piece from outside exercise to indoor fun.

On Track
