There is nothing ordinary about this little black dress. I like how it combines streetwear with athleisure, yet has a sexy and sleek approach. I love partnering up with NO KA ‘OI. The way the Italian label plays with cut-outs and interesting shapes is like a work of art. It hugs the body in all the right places. NYC is heating up these days. As things reopen, I’m slowly slipping into mini dresses with the ease of a sneaker. Who else is so happy to finally be leaving the house? I’m jumping for joy.
I think I have the most fun when it comes to athleisure. NO KA’ OImixes the spirit of Hawaii with incredible Italian-made design and quality. Here I am taking my nightly stretch in the most sick workout look I own. I’m in love with the 70’s inspired colors and stripes complete a futuristic, elegant touch. Check out that puffed sleeve and sleek silver shine. I don’t think you get more editorially high fashion when it comes to going to the gym. So brilliant. I might be home stretching out those sore muscles and doing yoga in my living room, but honestly, I can’t wait to take this top and style it up for fashion week. Who else thinks it’s a good idea?! I love when athleisure/workout gear can easily transform into something I can take to the street. NO KA’OI, you surprise me every single season.
In the fall and winter, I spend a lot more time in my workout gear. Fall for evening runs. Winter for the gym…my favorite place to keep warm during a snowstorm. Therefore, I am constantly on the hunt for absolutely killer workout gear. Meet NO KA’OI, a super chic workout line that pushed boundaries in their eclectic, unique design. And guess what?! Their new collection just launched at Barneys, my top destination in discovering elevated and emerging brands. Tracksuits with a rainbow down the side?! Count me in. NOKA’OI does color blocking unlike anyone else out there. See why I’m so obsessed?
