Being a busy mom of two, I do not have a ton of time to keep up on the fashion trends as I might like to, so I rely on finding quality pieces that are timeless in both style and sustainability. My favorite sustainable retails, prAna, is able to meet me on both of those points and so much more with each new line of clothing that they bring out! The new 2014 fall line has just been launched and I was lucky enough to receive a few pieces in exchange for my honest opinion. I am excited to tell you about two of my favorite pieces from the new line that will bolster your wardrobe and serve as the perfect spring boards for many outfits! I love that prAna’s clothing lines are chic and have a longevity about them – things that you can wear for years to come. On top of that, prAna cares – they care about the Earth, the people on it and our future.
What do I think of the 2014 fall prAna line?
I had a chance to take a sneak peek at the new 2014 Fall prAna line and it is amazing! With beautifully cut lines that will flatter just about any body! I was excited to check out the Kara Jeans! Now, as a curvy gal (your typical size 14 – plus I have short legs!), I had not dove into the world of skinny jeans strictly believing they were “not for me”. But the more I saw them on other people and realized that I just needed to find the right pair, the more excited I became. The Kara Jeans from prAna are low rise, stretch denim that fit in all the right ways. I love that you have the option cuff that is both stylish and for someone with short legs, like me, functional to keep my pants off the ground! I paired these with my favorite slip-on flats, but they look equally gorgeous with a pair of heels! They fit true to size and move really well. I do not own many low rise jeans and was worried about the look and fit – but these jeans really do have a perfect cut so there is no gapping (no “whale tail” to be seen!) and are quite flattering. Hubby was definitely in favor of these jeans! So if you have been thinking about taking the skinny jean plunge, definitely check out the jeans from prAna as the fit cannot be beat – they look amazing!
So I am rocking my skinny jeans and now ready to jump into layers! New this season, prAna has a perfectly elegant sweater wrap. The Georgia Wrap is my new favorite all-around article of clothing! I can dress this up or down and it looks fantastic! It is made of 100% organic cotton and this fine gauge knit is soft and comfortable to wear! I love layering this at work with fitted t-shirts as it dresses those up and allows me to be comfortable while still falling within the business casual realm! I can also wear it with jeans for a playful look that I really like! With the unseasonably cool summer here in Wisconsin, I am grateful for this wrap sweater as I can throw it in my purse for when the day starts warm, but then inevitably cools and I am ready to continue my day while still looking great and adding a layer of warmth!
I absolutely adore the 2014 Fall line from prAna. The pieces are timeless, effortless and conscientious. I love how so many of the pieces interact and match well with other pieces so you can have an endless combination of stylings and outfits. If you are looking to build a quality wardrobe that will hold up well, look great and make you feel good about where it came from – you will definitely want to shop with prAna!
