In the coming weeks, the leaves will start to change color and the holidays will roll in one by one before our eyes—yes, it’s almost fall! Now while I do love all the fashion that the season brings with it (loafers, chunky sweaters, etc.) I would be lying—and giving myself way too much credit—if I said my typically daily fall uniform did not consist of hoodies and sweatpants. What can I say? I’ll take comfy fits over restricting ones any day. And Canadian brand Roots has dropped a new collection that couldn’t have come at a better time, and it’s one you’ll want to shop ASAP for all things loungewear.
The new launch features a series of gender-free items including the Original Full Zip Hoodie, Original BF Sweatpant, Original Zip Stein, and Heritage Sweatpants. It’s full of basic essentials you’ll more than likely find yourself putting on for things as simple as a coffee run to a girls’ night in. Plus, all of these pieces are sustainable, 100% made with organic cotton and recycled fleece; and there’s no better feeling than knowing you’re shopping smart. Scroll on for some of our favorite products from this collection.
These Organic Cooper High Waisted Sweatpants feature a high rise fitand a slightly tapered leg. Plus, it is made in classic super-soft fleece.
The Cooper BF Hoodie is super-soft and made for everyday use. It’s perfect to layer over or throw on on its own with a pair of sweats for the ultimate casual outfit.
Sometimes hoodies aren’t for everyone, which is understandable! This Cooper Relaxed Polo Sweatshirt brings a little bit more of an elevated touch to your casual days. Plus, it can easily be dressed up with a cute skirt and some sneakers.
This year’s return to the desert by festival goers saw much excitement as we made our way back to Palm Springs for Coachella 2022.
After having been absent for the last two years due to Covid-19, Coachella proved to be just what we all had hoped and more. With spetacular headliners such as Harry Styles, Sweedish House Mafia + The Weeknd, and Billie Eilish; attendees experienced a treat with no holds barred for the first time since the pandemic began.
As expected, the heat of the desert had many people scrambling for mini fans, cold refreshments, or shade—wherever they could find it. Luckily, American Express and Umami Burger helped enchance everyone’s experience by providing a top tier lounge and food.
On the festival grounds, for the first time ever American Express partnered with Bravado to create a one-of-a-kind artist pop-up shop in their on-site Lounge, where Card Members will have access to exclusive, limited-edition festival merchandise from some of their favorite performers, including Billie Eilish and Conan Gray.
Billie Eilish for her part had a black zip-up hoodie that has been reclaimed and upcycled from deadstock, shelf pulls, retail returns & gently used apparel, giving it new life & making each hoodie unique.
Conan Gray on the otherhand had a watermelon-pigment dyed unisex crewneck pullover featuring your sweater embroidered text (a play on his hit song “Heather”) with exclusive desert cactus embroidery.
Entry into to the American Express Lounge was open to Card Members and up to 3 of their guests. Wellness activities to recharge in between sets, including a crystal bar, tarot card and astrology readings from Smudge Wellness, plus healing acupressure ear seeding were available on both Sundays (April 17 & April 24) . All of this was in addition to the hydration station, charging stations and cash bar that was available for Card Members at the space daily.
