The weather these past few weeks leaves much to be desired. Hear me out: I don’t hate the rain, in fact, I welcome the cool breeze with open arms in exchange for the usual humidity we tend to live with (despite the fact that I end up freezing to death in the office thanks to the air-conditioning). But, dressing for colder temperatures can be quite a challenge—do we want to look like walking burritos or can we even think about keeping warm in style? Not to mention the fact that our umbrellas barely stand a chance under the bouts of torrential rain that pour once every few days.
Enter the good guys at lululemon. As part of their campaign to ensure we stay ‘warmer together’, the athletic apparel label has launched a series of outerwear options that go above and beyond keeping its wearer warm. You might wonder how worthy an investment their pieces might be, considering we do see warmer days for the first half of the year—fret not, they’ve got you covered (pun intended). Made with lightweight and breathable material, these pieces can be worn any day of the week. We forgot to mention the cherry on top: the collection comes with a water-resistant feature that’ll protect you even in the heaviest of rains! Especially as the holidays fast approach, if you’re preparing to travel, it’ll be a good idea to bring a piece from this collection with you to ensure you stay warm no matter what.
Regardless of whether you’re a fan of bright colours, or you tend to play it safe with more neutrals in your wardrobe—this collection has something for everyone. Our picks from the collection would have to be the Outpour Jacket and the Warp Light Packable Jacket. The former is a waterproof jacket that was made for movement—with a two-way stretch fabric, this multifaceted piece can take you from a casual day to hardcore workouts (the integrated ventilation works amazingly for cooldowns!). The latter is the perfect motivation you need for getting out of bed on a rainy morning to work out—the breathable mesh, and waterproof fabric will keep you fresh and dry while you complete your outdoor laps. Once you’re done, all you’ve got to do is pack it up into a back pocket for easy storage as you go about your day.
