Winter is the season to embrace layering and at Arrowtown’s luxury active wear store, Goals, there are plenty of options including jackets and sweats, tops, pants, and leggings.
Add a pair of the latest sneakers or luxe sports shoes from the store’s shoe wall and the look is complete. “Active wear doesn’t have to be for just the gym or sports ground any more. We are seeing street wear being worn with active gear for day and night,” says Goals co-founder Caroline Walak.
“If you’re going out for brunch or lunch after the gym then throw a jacket on over your leggings andyou’re ready to hit the café. It’s a broader approach to integrating different wardrobe items and there are no rules anymore on how to wear it.”
WRAP UP WARM
Jackets are a seasonal statement and Caroline says merging street casual and active wear to create an individual approach to winter dressing is trending. “From L’URV we have the Avalanche jacket which is a long-line puffer with quilted insulation featuring deluxe rose gold zippers. You can slip it on over leggings and leave the gym ready to go shopping.
We love the Close Bomber by Federation that crosses over easily between sport and street, as does the cute Camino Puffa by Lorna Jane in black and green. From Superdry, the Cocoon Parka with its faux fur trimmed hood and long line finish is stylishly warm and easy to dress up or down.”
CANADA GOOSE EXCLUSIVE
Canada Goose jackets are known for their design and craftsmanship and are indispensable garments for alpine environments. At Goals there is an exclusive range for winter 18.
“We are fortunate to have the Dore Hoody, Stellarton Coat and Savona Bomber for women exclusive to Goals and available in black,” says Caroline. “The HyBridge Lite jacket is also available in-store and suits both city environments and weekend adventures. The jacket is warm and water repellant made from lightweight down with plenty of flexibility and breathability.”
