Hi my lovely readers! Today I'm going to introduce you to a super cool Canadian activewear line as well as show you the results of a fun little style challenge I took part in with the brand. Titika Active Wear launched in Toronto back in 2009 and with sportswear trending more than ever it's not a surprise to see these guys on the rise. Titika's functional yet fashion-forward designs made me fall for the line very easy. They offer a fresh perspective by gaining inspiration from the runways and leading trends then creating designs with the best quality fabrics. With our inspiration sources in common and Titika claiming their pieces are versatile for the on-the-go lifestyle I've put Titika to the Trend Struck Style Challenge test. Check out below how I've styled 5 of their pieces for occasions outside of the gym and let me know what your favourite look is in the comment section below!
LOOK 1 featuring the Titika Heart Pants
I'm kicking off my first look with my absolute favourite Titika piece, the Heart pants. There is no denying the mesh cut-outs are super rad and aside from their edgy look they are extremely comfortable with a barely there feeling. Pairing these leggings up with my new modernized take on the windbreaker I would run my errands in this look any day!
LOOK 2 featuring the Matrix Bra
Is anyone else obsessed with how bras, including sports bras, are seriously upping their style game? Luckily with trends like crop tops and exposed bra lines these itty bitty pieces are more fun to play up in your look than ever. Here I'm wearing the Matrix bra with cool criss cross detailing that made it an obvious choice for me to pair it with a high waisted skirt and a pair of pumps to make this going out approved!

LOOK 3 featuring the Minka Pants
Having the perfect lounging pant is essential. In the summer sweats can be too hot and that's why I was so nicely surprised by the light weight of these Minka pants. With the elastic cuffs they were perfect to pair with my favourite kicks, my Nike Dunk Sky Hi's, and a casual tank. This look is perfect for those casual nights around the house or relaxing weekend getaways at the cottage.

I can't get enough of Titika's fun mesh detailing. It's so current and pushes the fashion envelope with their pieces. Aside from these sexy little details is the tanks shape. It has a flare to the bottom almost mimicking the still popular peplum trend. This look I completed with a pair of tailored trousers, a blazer and my favourite booties that could literally take this look from work to after work drinks then transition to the gym by easily switching up the bottoms (if you were feeling that ambitious all in one evening that is).

Last but not least we have a cozy sweater. We all should have that one go-to that we can reach for to add a layer while taking an evening stroll. The Geebee sweater caught my eye because I knew it would quickly become that go-to for me. I love it's extended length, the thumbholes, the high neck and Titika's logo for the pockets is a pretty adorable detail too. Pairing this with jeans and my converse it's such a quick and easy look that's comfortable for a road trip or flight.
