Marika Workout Wear For The Win

Hey Love Bugs! The past few years have truly been a great experience as I continue my fitness and yoga journal. I’ve found that over the past few years its very important ti have apparel that fit your lifestyle. Marika has been my go to for the past year.  I knew that there had to be a reason why I instantly fell in love with the brand.

I learned that Marika has had their pulse on workout trends for over 30 years. They were founded during the 80’s trendy aerobics boom, Marika still continues to exude inspiration and confidence even in today’s age.


As we take a look at today’s workout styles we see that the fashion styles have come a long way from the old school leg warmers, belted leotards and spandex stir-up pants and Marika is at the forefront of today’s athleisure wear concept.  Today’s workout trends lean more towards be more fashionable, comfortable and fitting to our busy lives. I love that fact that Marika gets it! They take a woman’s busy life plus the thousands of hats that we wear and tie all of those facts into creating amazing apparel. Every outfit that I received from my monthly Ellie subscription box and orders placed via Marika’s website have always been a perfect fit. In their shirt, bras or jackets I wear a size medium and in leggings I wear a large. I found that going up a size in my pants gave me room for the hips and bottoms that us melanin girls have. LOL!


Let’s chat about some of their designs.

High Waisted Leggings:  These are by far my favorites. What girl doesn’t love a pair of cute fitting high waisted leggings. The Marika leggings feature lightweight and seamless fabrics for ultimate support and comfort.  Shape enhancing leggings are crafted using patented technologies to flatten, slim and sculpt your figure.  

Cut Outs:  Perfectly placed cut-outs and mesh insets give ordinary leggings just the right amount of pizzaz to modernize your look.  The Nola Side Pocket Ankle Legging with contrasting prints and mesh insets will definitely up your workout wear game.


Media Pockets:  No pair of leggings is complete without somewhere to stash all of your belongings. The sleek side pockets on the Chandelle leggings are perfect for your phone, gym membership, cash or keys whether you are out running errands or hitting the trail at the local park.

Cardigans: I love the versatility of their cardigans. They’re perfect for my everyday life. You can quickly transition from workout to meeting a friend for a lunch date to catch up.
