I wasn’t sure I’d love this color on me but in person it’s actually about two shades less washed out than it shows on camera. It’s a very pretty burnt rose color, so I’m not sure why they named it unappealing ‘quicksand’. Quicksand looks great paired with Black Currant. I’m a size 10 in almost all Lululemon jackets except for Define Jackets which I take a 12 in.
Here is a shot of it next to my face so you can see how the color works with my colouring. I’m fair cool toned. The next photo shows how well it pairs with Black Currant.
I’m torn with this short sleeve because I recently purchased the Sole Training SS in this same color and I really like it. I like that with the Sole Training I don’t have to worry about pretty bra straps. The Anew Short Sleeve however, is prettier and more feminine. The open back on this short sleeve is really pretty also, but then I won’t be able to wear a regular bra with this, just a pretty strappy sports bra.The cut of the side slits reminds me of an Aritzia tee I have and love – the Capuccine.
These are so pretty on! They are slightly snug going on, over the ankles, but once on they are just nicely compressive. The embossed is really pretty and it’s a slight sheen over matter full on luxtreme. I would pick my regular size 1o in these. Don’t size down!
I really didn’t think I’d like this tank because of the hem, but actually I think the hem is really pretty and long enough to be flattering. Like the Anew Short Sleeve, this split hem and the way they’ve balanced it reminds me a lot of the Aritzia Capuccine Tee. Split hems like this can be really unflattering if the front panel is too short and wide, but it’s nice and long actually and has some nice draping of the fabric. My reason for not purchasing this tank is that it really displays an area that I’m self conscious of at the moment (my wide bulky traps thanks to oly lifting) but I would have otherwise loved to have purchased this to wear with cute jeans in the summer. I hated the Anew Bra paired with this and everything else. It’s just a non supportive, unflattering cup shape and underneath all of the tops I tried on it looked terrible. I much prefer the Free To Be Serene Bra to coordinate with this top and the Anew Short Sleeve.
