Here’s some key words and phrases that will get my attention: neoprene, bright, doesn’t need to be ironed, 25 per cent off at Country Road. I’m such a sucker for all those things. Sigh. Cut to me paying for a bright orange neoprene top a couple of weeks ago during one of the store’s pre-Christmas sales.
The Sculptured Tank, as it’s known, is beautifully cut, with a longer back and fitted well across the chest. Because of the slightest of slight crops at the front it can be worn with fuller midi skirts well, or even a slim fitting pant. It’s simple and no fuss, and statement necklaces look great against the sharp colour. For those who don’t see a nearly neon orange in their future it also comes in navy. At $79.95 it’s a bit more that I think they should be charging but the 25 per cent off made it reasonable for me.
I also have to admit I got a little bit sucked it to their new sportswear range thanks to the discount. Though I have more than enough sports bras, this grey, white and orange one (called the Sprint Outline Bra) with it’s graphic modern cut managed to make it’s way into my shopping basket. It’s comfortable and looks fantastic, so much so I’m tempted to go back for the mint, grey and white or the black and white versions. At $59.95 they’re not cheap but isn’t buying good looking exercise gear part of trying to tempt yourself into breaking a sweat more often?
