I had the opportunity to attend a NYFW workout with Carrie Underwood, her road trainer Eve Overland, and the whole CALIA team to view the latest collection and step into Carrie’s daily workout (note: she makes it look so easy. It is not.)
The head designers, Freddie McQueen and Alycia Scott, gave us an exclusive sneak peek at the new CALIA athleticwear line, and omg I want it all! Except I don’t really workout, maybe my new threads will inspire me to to hit the gym more (because Eve’s 30-minute high intensity workout totally kicked my butt!). As they explained, this new line features many of the same beloved silhouettes in different hues, bright prints, mesh and sheer sections, layering options, and a variety of tees, so any athletic girl will find her dream workout wardrobe with CALIA.
This print dominates the latest collection, and it def is so cute. #addingtomywishlistasap
I’d thought I’d break down some of my personal favorite looks of the collection:
Graphic Muscle Tank Top
I was able to wear one of these tanks during our workout, and I really like it. It’s comfortable, easy to work out in, and the tees feature cute, inspirational quotes that’ll inspire you in your workout endeavors.
Shine Textured Pieced Leggings
I was able to wear these leggings during the workout, and honestly? I was a little nervous about working out in such tight leggings. But as the label read, these leggings incorporate wicking technology that “pulls moisture away from the skin,” with maximum breathability. And as I was slowly dying during Eve’s intense workout, and sweating profusely, the leggings kept me cool. A win in my book!
Printed Sports Bra
Featuring a criss-cross back, this sports bra comes in an adorable print, that immediately added a necessary pop of color to my all-gray workout outfit.
Purple Sports Bra
I love this shade of purple and again, adorable print.
I’m a big fan of workout capris when I’m working out, or more likely, just running errands, and these printed pants are perfect for my style.
With winter fast approaching, headbands become an outfit staple. And the minute I saw this gray headband, I was obsessed. Especially the bow, love it! Totally my style. Definitely ready for winter now!
Mesh Bomber Jacket
The moment I first saw this bomber jacket hanging on the rack at the event, I was instantly obsessed. It’s not only perfect for your workout, but I think it’s fashionable enough that you can wear it out and about. And I plan to.
Effortless Mesh Full Zip Sleeveless Hoodie
Can I just say, completely obsessed?? I love it.
It’s definitely a cute collection, and doesn’t get in the way of your workout. Who knows, maybe it’ll inspire me to up my workout game? Maybe, I said maybe.
