'Active wear' in the new BESTOWED Pre-Summer Collection

Well after lots of craziness, the Bestowed Pre-Summer Collection is all ready and many of the regular customers have been enjoying the new styles already. The Fern print has been a nice addition to the Bestowed Collection, adding a different element. Finally I found the perfect fabric to make garments that cross over from exercise to everyday wear.

I have been doing 5 Pilates sessions a week over the past year and found that I needed clothes that I could do Pilates or Yoga in as well as work and do my every day activities. I don't like the look of 'active wear' and also I am allergic to synthetic fabrics (polyester, polyamide, meryl, nylon, acrylic etc etc) so it made sense for me to create garments that were natural fibres and the way I wanted them to look. I wanted to have coverage over the hips but not be too baggy. So I designed a couple of garments to do exactly that.

This is the Maggie skirt/pant style, which is essentially an overskirt attached to leggings. This pic shows the Maggie skirt/pant with a Tansy top, then layered with a Perla long sleeve top or Swivel top and cocoon shrug and slider belt.

This Maggie style is super comfy, looks cute on and is a flattering style. It comes in fern or shadow coloured print, both on a black base of Australian made stretch organic cotton (shadow print in these pics).

These pics show the Josie tank dress over Lara 3/4 leggings (bunched up over the hips for Pilates) then layered with Dove coloured pieces for before or after exercise.

The Quirk short sleeved shrug, the Annabel Coat or Ester cardi are just some of the options for outfits based on a simple tunic dress over leggings.

All Bestowed Clothing is cotton, yes it's vegan friendly, natural and 100% Australian made.

I hope you enjoy wearing it as much as I am.
