The Lookbook Volume 1 | Energetiks Staff Favourites
There's just something about winter that brings out the inner fashionista in all of us; maybe it's the fact that when the weather turns chilly there's a lot more incentive to think about which clothes, and the amount of clothes you're wearing (...or on some occasions, wish you were wearing!) than during the carefree months of summer. However we also know first-hand that winter fashion is a lot less utilitarian than it's mere weather-fortifying properties; winter means a new, richer colour palette, stylish coats, luxurious fabrics and a plethora of scarves and socks! It's the season to reinvent yourself, put comfort first, and try something unique. Luckily for the team here at Energetiks, we've got an endless supply of warm, stylish clothes designed specifically to take us seamlessly through the day, from work-life, to gym sessions and everything else we've packed into our busy schedules! This week we wanted to let you in on some of our own personal favourite winter looks, as worn by three of our amazing team members, dance consultants Eliza, Luda and Eloise. Check out their go-to winter looks below!

The best part about cooler seasons is that we get to give in to our preferences for comfort clothing and be adventurous with layering and textures in a whole new way. And right at the very top of every girl's winter wish-list is the most wonderfully cozy of all: the over-sized jumper. Our Audrey sweater makes styling a gorgeous winter outfit effortless, it's relaxed fit and ribbed collar boat-neck cut make this the ultimate accessory to layer over high-necked garments for something a little classic (without adding unwanted bulk). Better yet, try pairing it with a turtle-neck dress, or collared shirt + pencil skirt for something that stands out from the crowd, and then make the world's coziest date-worthy outfit by pairing the Audrey sweater with some fitted denim and high-heeled boots, Voilà! The Audrey's unbrushed fleece will keep you toasty warm whatever winter adventuring you get up to.

Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too? Gone are the days when 'comfort-wear' and 'fashion' were the Yin and Yang of the clothing world, and this season's take on the humble sweat pant (sleeker, smarter, made-for-streetwear) means our tailored Avery track pant is the power piece that can take you straight from lazy Sundays at home all the way through to Friday night city-life. Take a leaf out of Gigi Hadid and Sarah Jessica Parker's book and put a little more luxury into your sports-luxe style with a perfectly sleeked ponytail, casual shirt and your choice of the Avery track pants in classic Black, versatile Dark Grey, or the ultra-fresh Grey Marle. Plus, the wide ribbed cuffs on these trackies gives the leg a perfectly contoured finish around the ankle and makes them super easy to pair with everything from ankle boots, to chunky heels and wedges, or high-heeled sneakers; whether you're feeling a little classy, a little retro, a little urban or a little sporty, track pants are the 'little black dress' of 2017, and we're totally down with that.

Winter weather doesn't mean you have to forego all colour for monochrome palettes. Quite the opposite! Just like cold, misty skies make the perfect canvas for rainbows, the cool tones of winter are the ideal time to pull off those bolder, vibrant hues you've been eyeing up without feeling like your outfit is too loud for anyone but Lady Gaga. Mix things up during workouts by choosing a full-colour focal piece (rather than head-to-toe colour) in your favourite hue, and complete the look with neutral, tailored pieces (like this mesh throw-over) that balance out the aesthetic and give you a final product that's both contoured and colourful.
