- Navy & Neon Peach Polyester Spandex - The 1980s gave spandex a bit of a bad name, but I'm reclaiming it as it has so many wonderful properties. This spandex is matte, silky, and highly saturated, with great recovery. It's also used for swimwear, so it has 50 UPF built in and it's abrasion resistant, meaning it won't pill after one workout. The dark blue pairs beautifully with the neon peach (complementary colors for the win!) And I really love the pop of color at the waistband.
- Black Textured Dobby Knit - Everyone loves a basic black, but basic this fabric is not. The dobby weave creates a checked texture on this fabric, adding a subtle hint of pattern and extra movement. Nylon fibers give the fabric a soft hand and excellent breathability, and a healthy dose of spandex gives it great recovery. A unique yet classic option!
