prAna Clothing for All Seasons

by Leanne

PNL184-BK In my quest for warm clothes this past January, I remembered a brand I had seen while hubby was browsing one of the {many} local outdoors shops we frequent. Normally, I don’t do much shopping for me in those kinds of stores, with the exception of the stray water bottles or specific biking gear, but the prAna clothing display was different in that I had loved each and every piece sold in the store. I decided to check out their website to see if the rest of their collection was as cute as the sampling I had seen, and promptly fell in love with 90% of their winter and spring collection.

Since Sundance is a big part of our January schedule, I was looking for both outerwear and layering pieces that could work for our mild Seattle winter as well as the slopes in Park City, Utah. But, more importantly than going from state to state, was finding pieces that were versatile enough to go from work to play no matter where we were. And, in terms of diverse clothing lines, it really doesn't get much better than prAna.

150 As a Northwest native, I see more than my fair share of outdoorsy clothing each year, but rarely do I find a company like prAna that pulls together mountain retreat attire, travel comfort and sportswear without ever coming across as too casual for everyday wear. Instead of the standard washed out cotton clothing typically marketed to women in outdoor shops, I was really surprised to find a whole catalogue of clothing that was truly stylish as well as still being functional and comfortable. In fact, the prAna website and catalogue looks nothing like an outdoorsy catalogue, but rather just looks like a popular women’s clothing catalogue that just happens to showcase a wide range of products from a huge variety of styles, one of them being outdoor-friendly designs.

51Oc3-gs52L__AA280_ I got to try a sampling of prAna’s winter line to showcase on the streets of Park City this year, and love the brand even more now that I have gotten to try it out in the freshly fallen snow. The prAna Michelle Duster cardigan sweater was so cozy and warm both around town and back at the condo, getting tons of compliments everywhere I wore it. It may feel like a cozy and warm blanket wrapped around you, but the great thing is that doesn’t look frumpy or oversized while you're wearing it. 

41q4tbfMHdL__AA280_ The nylon quilted Zeya vest was perfect for layering over thermal tops and under snow coats for the really cold days and nights, but also looked adorable as an outer layer indoors and for Seattle’s winter weather once we returned home. The princess seams of the vest are extremely flattering and don’t make you feel like the Michelin man walking around town. A flattering cut paired with the jacquard sweater insert design details offer a really feminine take on the traditional bulky snow attire and makes this my favorite vest for fall through spring.

In addition to having adorable and awesome clothing, prAna is very much committed to the environment, going above and beyond to limit their resource consumption as well as their employees’. For the past 17 years they have made an effort to provide the highest quality clothing using sustainable materials while minimizing waste. They also support a number of other organizations that protect our environment and work towards a healthier world for the next generations, including the Organic Trade Association, Organic Exchange, Conservation Alliance, HERA and the Outdoor Foundation.

1efeb543-3a62-4273-b615-f551d409a489 Whether you are althletic and active or chic and girly, or maybe are a little bit of both, you are bound to find an item or 28 in the prAana line that works with your lifestyle. I am absolutely in love with their new Spring collection and would definitely suggest you check out their line for both active wear and casual clothing for the warmer months. I have a really long prAna wish list of items I would love for traveling that would go anywhere with me and work for both hot and cold temperatures as well as a full list of men's clothing items I would love to see hubby in this year.

While you are there, you should check out their awesome prAna Outlet that offers really great discounts on past-season items and overstocks. This is a great way to get all the workout gear you need to keep your New Year's resolution or the travel gear you need to get you covered for the next year.

A huge thank you to prAna for keeping me warm and stylish both on the slopes and at home.  No monetary compensation was received for this Rave Review.

I love the prAna Michelle Duster cardigan sweater, but it’s not on the website any more – drat! But I certainly found some other cute things, like the Tribe Top:
