prAna Spring Fashion
You know your obsession with a clothing brand has gotten out of hand when your husband starts recognizing it – and not just on you, but on other people.
My husband, who is not exactly a fashion maven, ran into our friend the other day and (correctly) identified her pants as prAna.
This is a big deal, you guys. My husband does not wear prAna. He buys his clothes from Sam’s Club and LA Police Gear. And look, I’m no clothing snob either. Some of my favorite clothes are from Sam’s too, and probably 25% of my wardrobe is from Target.
But prAna is just so dreamy. Can you really blame me for being obsessed?
I had the opportunity to try out a couple of pieces from prAna’s spring line. First up? The Annexi Pant.
I love these pants so much I could marry them.
No, seriously. They rock. They’re made from 53% Hemp, 44% Recycled Polyester, 3% Spandex – making them sustainable, super comfortable, and just a tiny bit stretchy.
I’ve been curious about jogger pants for a while. I like the way they look, but sometimes the crotch looks like it hangs too low – which seems comfortable and a little silly. I was a bit worried that the Annexi Pant would have that problem, but nope! The crotch is right where it should be.
The material is very lightweight and versatile – the kind that you can dress up or dress down. Mine are in Black Herringbone – they also come in Coal, which frankly looks like almost the same color. I’m thinking about purchasing a second pair, probably in Coal just so it doesn’t look like I’m wearing the same pants every day.
In my experience, prAna runs a little big. I’m usually a small, but I got these in an extra-small and they fit really well. They do slip down my hips just a little, and I don’t have narrow hips or a flat butt – so just be aware of that if you have a really narrow frame. Also, these are ankle length on me (I think the length is perfect), but I’m only 5 feet tall – another thing to keep in mind while shopping.
I also got to try out the Katya Top. It’s made from 100% organic cotton and comes in 5 colors and 2 types of fabric: solid crinkle dobby [Dobby – A decorative weave, characterized by small figures, usually geometric, that are woven into the fabric structure] and yarn dye ticking stripe [Ticking – A closely woven cotton in a twill or satin weave, and usually with woven stripes].
I chose the Supernova Stripe, which is a pretty blue with delicate colored stripes. I love the colors and the lace accents. This top is simple, classic, and feminine – and a great addition to my spring wardrobe.
Like the Annexi pants, I selected this top in an extra-small (I typically wear a small in tops). It fits well across the shoulders and chest (not snug at all) and flares a little to the waist. This style is a bit loose-fitting, so keep that in mind when ordering.
These are just two of prAna’s spring pieces. You can check out the whole spring line HERE. You’ll find lots of comfy organic denim and basic t-shirts in pretty/classic mix & match colors.
