Bring on the new year essentials
Traditionally, January is a time for resetting. And even if you never manage to write in that bullet journal or start that hip hop aerobics class, you can still reset your wardrobe. Nothing beats an interchangeable capsule of pieces that you can transition from season to season, so look out for a clever mix of elevated staples that will sustain you through work, workouts and weekends, too. Statement investment pieces prove a failsafe way to approach the new year and loungewear classics are still on every wish list, because really, what would January be without elasticated waistbands? Let’s bring on the new.
Workwear steps back into the light as people head back to the office and it’s making us excited for Monday morning. Two weeks (or in some cases, two years) away from the office can do wonders for gaining some clarity about your working wardrobe. So as you re-enter the world of takeaway coffees and watercooler chats, leave the stuffy suits and court shoes at home – sneakers have become a legitimate footwear choice, and slouchy tailoring is taking the place of more structured silhouettes. Oh, and you can forget your neutrals too, because classic shapes in unexpected colours will be taking you right through ‘til spring.
Whether your January goals involve making it through all 6 seasons of Gossip Girl in record time or becoming a master of reformer pilates, our activewear will do the job. From joggers and leggings with the all-important elasticated waistband to hoodies and tops that toe the line between ath and leisure like gold medallists, RI Active will help you ease into the new year in comfort and style.
They say a Sunday well spent brings a week of content, so make your downtime a priority this year. You’ll need a wardrobe that feels so good, you can’t wait to get up on Sunday morning, meet friends for brunch, take a wholesome walk and generally seize the day. Try denim in any type of cut – straight, tapered or even bootcut, with a print blouse and some chunky-soled boots. Weekend wardrobe sorted.
