Did you guys know Carrie Underwood is launching a fitness clothing line!?
Her new line of fitness apparel, CALIA, is debuting today and will be available at DICK’S Sporting Goods stores nationwide. As someone who basically lives in gym clothes and as a big-time Carrie Underwood fan, I jumped at the chance to try out a few items from CALIA and have nothing but good things to say about the quality, style and functionality the clothing.
I was challenged to take some items from Calia and transform them from “studio to street.” I had so much fun playing around in my closet!
From Barre to Errands Around Town…
The first look I came up with features a Barre to Errands Around Town look!
For the barre workout, I paired a CALIA by Carrie Underwood Seamless Tank with a strappy black sports bra, black leggings and sneakers (for walking to and from the studio). This look easily transitions into a street look by adding boots, a colorful clutch, casual jacket and a beanie! I figured this would be a look I could wear after a barre workout to run around town since a lightweight tank and leggings are both items I frequently wear to my Pure Barre classes. A pair of boots, a denim jacket and a beanie are simple items you can easily throw on post-workout, so this look is a breeze!
The beanie is key for hiding “ponytail hair.” Haha!
A quick note about this tank: The tank has ruching along the sides that allow you to choose how long you want it to be – you can bunch it up or pull it down over your hips for additional coverage, which is how I chose to wear the tank since I have a such a long torso (and a growing baby bump)! I also love how it comes up a little higher on the neckline, which I appreciate from a modesty standpoint since I teach a lot of Spinning classes where I feel like I am bending over the handlebars of a bike!
From the Gym to Brunch…
The second look features the same comfy ruched CALIA Essential Tank but incorporates my absolute favorite item I had the chance to try from the new line: The Effortless Dip Dye Cocoon Sweater.
The gym look shown above is super comfy and features the CALIA Seamless Tank, CALIA Effortless Dip Dye Cocoon Sweater, CALIA Effortless French Terry Capri and sneakers.
It easily transitions into a brunch look by swapping out the sweatpants and sneakers for a pair of skinny jeans and flip flops!
But back to that sweater… The CALIA Effortless Dip Dye Cocoon Sweater is super long in the back (great if you’re wearing leggings!) and the material is incredibly soft and breathable. It’s the perfect springtime studio cover up that also translates well to out-of-the-gym looks, like this one I put together for a weekend brunch with girlfriends.
I paired the tank and cardigan with with skinny jeans, flip flops, an oversize clutch and a gold necklace and threw my hair in a loose braid for a quick and simple gym-to-lunch look.
I had a blast putting these outfits together and hope you enjoyed a little sneak peek into the new CALIA by Carrie Underwood fitness apparel line!
