Fila Herringbone Leggings Alter The Conversation

Fila addresses the long-standing debate over leggings rages on. Are they pants? Are they Not? Can I wear them every day?

Though I long-ago decided I was squarely on the side of “I’ll wear these comfy stretchy things whenever and wherever I darn well please,” I’ve never been totally stoked on wearing them on the trail, and particularly not on overnight trips. They hold sweat and smell, they’re prone to snagging and ripping when subjected to rugged terrain, and they offer little to no protection from wind or rain.

But they were also my only full-length active pants that were even remotely appropriate for hiking. I have pants for winter conditions, ski pants, long johns, and…shorts. Women’s hiking pants tend to be baggy and unflattering (though companies like Prana and Stio have some great, stylish options), and as a rule, I don’t love wearing super futuristic gear on something as low-key as a day hike or an overnighter.

Then I got my hands on a pair of Fila Herringbone Leggings which somehow capitalize on everything that’s awesome about leggings—they’re reliably breathable, stretchy and super-comfortable, and built to really move with you—while remedying everything that makes spandex more at home at a yoga class or on a run than on an epic hike.

Made of a lightweight, durable, quick-drying, and breathable fabric, the Fila Herringbone is much more at home in the backcountry than my Lululemons. They’re cut like a legging with just a little extra room—so, tapered at the ankle, slim through the leg, and rising to just below my bellybutton, but without the total body-hugging suction of a good pair of spandex. Thoughtful design including articulated knees and tons of secure pocket space means they don’t sacrifice movement or function for a trim fit. The minimalism extends to the waistband, which lays flat and holds snug without any buttons, zippers, buckles, or unnecessary bulk, meaning they’re a great match for hip-belts and harnesses. However, the fixed waistband did have me doing a little dance to get them on and off.

Most importantly, the price tag—only $46 on Shopping Blitz. isn’t going to leave you broke, particularly in comparison to gear by other brands. Perhaps less important, they’re super flattering. I wouldn’t necessarily wear them to work, but the versatile deep purple and black are a far cry from your standard safari-pant khaki, and I’d wear ’em around town—cuffed with sandals, at the climbing gym, just about wherever—without hesitation.

T.U.K. Shoes: Where Girly Meets Goth

TUK

Who says the girly girl and grunge goth can’t merge styles? We certainly don’t! T.U.K. is combining these two seemingly different styles to create its sought-after footwear collections, which are being rocked by famous celebs, including actress Riley Keough, punk rockers Avril Lavinge and Haley Williams, former Dainty Kane singer Dawn Richards, model Ireland Basinger Baldwin, and Internet personality Audrey Kitching, just to name a few.

Infusing black leathers and dark velvets with cute designs, like hearts, polka dots, kittens and flowers, T.U.K. shoes appeal to both the punk rocker and the prom queen. The brand is best known for its signature creepers— those shoes featuring thick crepe-soles with leather or suede uppers— but also creates eclectic flats, heels and combat boots. And, let’s not forget about its wide variety of creepers, sneakers, dress shoes and boots for men!

The San Diego-based company was founded in 1991. Since then, it’s remained the go-to footwear brand for bands, music fanatics, artists, fashionistas and individuals seeking bold and creative styles.

If you want to get your hands on a pair (or several) of T.U.K. shoes, creepers or boots, visit us online at ShoppingBlitz.com. We’ve recently added T.U.K. shoes to our 400+ list of popular brands and are frequently updating our styles.

4 Style Trends to Look Out for in 2016

shutterstock_334639727

The annual Pinterest 100, a curated board of 100 Pin predictions across the top 10 categories, was recently released and revealed the style trends that will be all the rage in 2016. While old trends like Athleisure will remain popular, new fads like belt bags will also be hot in this year. Read on to discover some of our favorite trends that you can expect to see in 2016.

Athleisure

If you love sporting your running sneakers, moisture-wicking jackets, and yoga pants beyond the gym and yoga studio, then you’ll be happy to hear that the Athleisure fashion trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The fashion trend, which prompts incorporating activewear into your everyday wardrobe, gained massive popularity in 2015 and is expected to continue its momentum in the new year. In fact, the buzzword has become so commonly used that it will be added to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary early this year.

Men's adidas Sport Performance Climacool Boat Pure SneakersThrowback Sneakers

Stemming from the Athleisure trend, comfy-cool throwback sneakers will continue to be a huge hit in 2016. Throwback sneakers are receiving tons of pins from men and women alike and are being rocked with all sorts of clothing, from trousers and jeans to dresses and skirts.

Belt Bags

Fanny pack lovers rejoice! This year we’ll see a modern take on the outdated fanny pack with the introduction of the elegant waist belt bag. This sophisticated take on the fanny pack will be the accessory of choice for storing all your essentials, especially during music festival season.

Merlot for Men

Merlot is anticipated to be the hot color for men this year. We can expect hues like merlot, maroon and burgundy to be featured on all kinds of men’s garments from formal jackets and suits to casual sweaters. So, if you’re looking to get some new pieces for the new year, stick to merlot!

Top 3 Best Winter Jackets of the Season

‘Tis the season for winter jackets. Heck, ‘tis the season for winter boots, scarves, hats, gloves…the list could go on. If you’re in need of new winter gear, there’s a method for every type of shopper. Some prefer to hunt around for discounted items, whether it’s pre-owned designer gear or bargain brands found in outlet malls or consignment stores. Others, however, prefer to splurge on one or two quality, top of the line items. For some, since winter wardrobes tend to be simplified (most find it unnecessary to own 5 different winter jackets, or 10 different pairs of gloves), it’s worth splurging for a solid coat or pair of boots that will work well and last all winter long.

No matter which kind of shopper you may be, most feel that it’s easiest to order one’s shoes or coat online. Fortunately, many resources are available that offer dozens of online, premium winter gear at both top line prices and smart discounts. Of all the winter gear to add to the shopping cart, most would agree that having a dependable winter jacket should be the number one wardrobe priority. Not sure which winter coat should make the cut this year? We’ve narrowed down the top 3 most worthwhile cold-weather wraps of the season. From breathability to moisture wicking technology and even battery-powered pocket warmers, the following winter jackets will knock anyone’s socks off:

1

1. Helly Hansen Coastal Parka: Its breathable material keeps you warm and dry, which as a result will help to regulate your body temperature. This 3/4-length hooded parka coat is both waterproof and windproof. Not only is it and waterproof, it is also very breathable. It comes equipped with a fully seam seal, 2-layer construction and is also fully insulated. Perfect for those cold, wet winter days!

2

2. Under Armour Cold-Gear Infrared Werewolf Jacket:  This high-tech coat repels water without sacrificing breathability. The insulation is lightweight and can be compressed without losing warmth. ColdGear Infrared uses a soft, thermo-conductive inner coating to absorb and retain your own body heat. This masterpiece is also windproof with a bonded, 2-layer softershell material on chest and arms. Not to mention the ColdGear cuffs that add stretch and warmth to shut out that icy winter chill.

3. Stormy Kromer Mackinaw Wool Coat: It’s might chilly out there in the big world, and this roomy, durable, 26 oz. virgin-wool coat protects you from the elements while wrapping you in the warmth of 109 years of hand-woven heritage. With 26 oz 100% Virgin Wool and made here in the U.S., it doesn’t get much cooler (or warmer) than that!

Whichever winter jacket you choose this year, just make sure it suits you. With these 3 winter jackets, you’ll get more bang for your buck—but there’s nothing more important than feeling comfortable wearing it and buy it!

Fall Favorites 2014: The Denim Shirt

We love fall here at Shopping Blitz. Sure we love the cool weather hikes, warm drinks and playing in fallen leaves, but what we really live for is replenishing our fall wardrobe! Blame it on years of back-to-school shopping, but once September / October hits we are pulling out our wallets and drooling over the season’s latest offerings. This year we are especially into simple, neutral pieces that can be reused for fall and winter. Remember simple does not have mean to boring. To us a classic piece is worth its weight in gold.

SBFallFavorites
Case in point: the versatility of a good denim shirt is almost immeasurable. You can wear it with it your colored skinny pants and an awesome pair of booties for a drool-worthy casual look. Tuck them into a pair of dress trousers and add some knock-em-dead heels for a classy look all your own. The options are endless! Tell us your favorite look. We love learning new style tricks!
