One thing I always consider when shopping, is can I wear this with anything, items that scream versatility, items I can wear throughout any season, is the item a basic neutral colour? The Roots Journey Collection managed to take a cabin feel to the city by infusing these two elements, making it comfortable but stylish too. We all know “loungewear” is now a real thing, so less effort is considered cool. 

As for staple items coupled with anything, I present the following stand out pieces: 

Men’s Journey Crew in Vapour Grey Mix 

The clean silhouette of this sweater makes it completely versatile, to some extent I see this unit as a unisex item too. This item coupled with some bicycle shorts would be just as trendy, as a female sweater part. I like the fact that they added a discreet side-seam zipper pocket to secure your valuables. Men can wear this throughout the year depending on the occasion, a key staple item in your wardrobe for sure. 

Men’s Journey Scuba Zip Hoody in Black 

This is a classic kanga fit, with a three-piece scuba hood, designed with a comfortable durable interlock fabrication for a clean silhouette.  Another well-designed item that will fit into any season, perfect for working from home, or running errands. 

Women’s Journey Polartec Pant in Arctic Sky 

I will admit, this item got me excited. It looks extremely comfortable, the colour is beautiful, so it really makes you want it. The microfleece pants come in a straight fit, with a nylon drawcord and shock cord stopper in the front.  With side seam pockets on the side to help you store items when running errands, it looks like something I will never take off. 

Women’s High Waist Journey Legging in Black

Most women wear leggings, again staple key item as you can wear it with almost anything, any time of the year. A self-explanatory item, leggings are a must. 

Women’s Journey Quarter Zip in Twilight Mauve

This item is luxurious, from watching the Desperate Housewives rock similar designs to celebrities wearing this with a suave pair of leggings. This item is all it’s worth, it features a 4 -way stretch fabric, with a peached hand feel. This running top is perfect for lounging around, running or taking cute selfies, pretending as you came back from a jog. Either way, I love it. 

Yes, the world is in the middle of a pandemic, yes, all we can think about is being safe and comfortable, no, our clothes do not have to be a reflection of that. We are blessed and fortunate, let’s celebrate that.
