Keep your cool when the pressure is on with performance wear by Icebreaker. Hailing from Wellington, the brand blends innovative technology with merino wool to create an outdoor kit that stands whatever test your weekend throws at it. Push your limits or work the sports look in the city with these powerful designs.
Let's start with the basics. Push yourself to the next level with a base layer by Icebreaker. Ladies, feel fully supported with sports bras from the range. Choose from low, mid and high-impact styles with thick backbands and pair with matching pants. Guys, look out for briefs in comfortable cuts with non-chafe flat-lock seams. Complete your kit with trainer or ankle socks with knitted supportive arches. When you have the essentials, move on to tees and leggings in breathable, lightweight fabrics. Graphic tees add a splash of colour for standout appeal. Layer up with a windbreaker when you're taking on the elements and add a woolly hat when the temperatures really drop (keep that head cosy at all costs).
If you can't make it out of the city this weekend, work your Icebreaker pieces in the metropolis. Get the so-on-trend-right-now athleisure look with sporty cuts and a neutral palette. On extra chilly days, layer a merino sweater with tapered sweatpants in a sleek shade. Add a bomber jacket and you're good to go for casual drinks or Sunday brunch (we say, do both - it's the weekend). Girls, grab a crop top to throw on with high-waisted jeans and white-soled sneakers for a fresh approach to cocktail hour dressing (80s tipple optional). Guys, stay sharp with a basic v-neck tee by Icebreaker. Team with slim-fit jeans and lace-up boots for a 'v good' look.
