Do you find jeans uncomfortable to wear on a daily basis? Well, have you ever tried combining yoga pants and your favourite top? When you do that, it’s actually a new style called athleisure. Athleisure became a trend just last year and consists of people wearing athletic and casual clothing together. Today, many brands are coming up with stylish sportswear that can be worn casually too. One of those notable collaborations is the new collection by New Balance and STAUD! Here at Glitz, we’re giving you firsthand insight into this amazing collection and what are our favourites from it.
Multi-year Collaborations See The Fourth Collection
Following their launch in June 2021, New Balance and STAUD are announcing a fourth collection that is available now. The new fall collection takes inspiration from a quote of “classic then, classic now”. Throughout the collection, you will find apparel and reinventions of the classic New Balance 574 and 57/40. Trust us when we say, you’ll fall in love with this new look!
This collection takes inspiration from early 80s workout videos, which demonstrates how style can be combined with functionality. With this, you will see the use of signature shapes and modern details throughout. If you’re a fan of bold colours and colour blocks then you’ll love the apparel. We’re talking about eye-catching crop tops and tight sets, tracksuits, as well as sweatsuits.
Our Favourites From The Fourth Collection
1. New Balance x STAUD 574
Classic is fantastic and we all know this. This is why one of our utmost favourite pieces from the collection is the 574! The 574 is an iconic design from New Balance and can be found in various hues. Whether you prefer shades of denim or grey, there’s always one that guarantees to fit your look. But this particular 574 in collaboration with STAUD, features bold and primary colours. Splashes of blue, red, yellow, and green highlight the footwear. We’re definitely pairing it with a monotonous outfit for that pop of colour. In fact, we think it would blend seamlessly even with a bright red athleisure look.
The 574 retails for $169 and you can purchase it here.
2. New Balance x STAUD 57/40
Another one of our favourites from this collection is the 57/40. Unlike the 574, this particular footwear is more on the contemporary side. It features premium leather and translucent details which help add a modern pop. What we love most about this pair is the subtle hints of yellow and red alongside the bold blue and green. It’s definitely a refreshing footwear to own, especially if you already have other shades of 57/40, like the camel one.
The 57/40 retails for $209. Click here to purchase it.
3. New Balance x STAUD Puffer Vest
The team here at Glitz like to go all out when we dress up. And this Puffer Vest helps us do exactly that. Featuring bright yellow and white in arrows above a black base, this vest gives us the ultimate racer vibe! But that’s not even the best part. The best part of this vest is that it features two spacious pockets that will keep your hands warm in an air-conditioned room. Plus, it is so versatile that you can style it with sleeve or sleeveless tops. We also love how it gives depth to a simple workout outfit.
The Puffer Vest retails for $149 and you can purchase it here.
4. New Balance x STAUD Colorblock Maxi
We love this colorblock maxi because it gives us so much comfort. It features two zippers, one at the top and the other at the bottom. So you can opt to wear it as a full-on dress or as an overcoat for your yoga outfit. The modernity of the maxi is something we admire. This is because it makes it super easy to match with any athletic outfits we put on. Even if we’re not heading to our weekly yoga sesh, we would definitely still wear this out for dates.
This Colorblock Maxi retails for $199. Click here to purchase it.
5. New Balance x STAUD Colorblock Sweatpant
The best thing about the athleisure style is being able to wear comfortable sweatpants all day every day! And one of our favourite sweatpants from New Balance and STAUD’s Fourth Collection is this colorblock sweatpant. We love how distinctive the design is and how bright yet subtle the hues that they use. Aside from that, the pants are also super comfortable and thick. Despite the thickness of the material, the sweatpant is still breathable. This makes it the perfect pair for casual everyday looks.
The Colorblock Sweatpant retails for $199 and you can purchase it here.
You can find The New Balance x STAUD collection at New Balance Paragon, Bugis Junction and Suntec City. If you’d like to take a look at the collection online, click here.
