The Stitch: Women’s Spring 2013 Trends

I don’t think anyone is as excited for spring as I am! There are so many things to look forward to… spring break, sunshine, music festivals, road trips, etc. With Spring and all of its perks comes new trends in fashion- colors, prints, fabrics, etc. Pastels such as mint and coral are going to be the go to colors of the season. Prints such as camo, florals, and stripes are going to be HOT. Fabrics that are light weight for example, knits, chiffon, and lace are going to be easy to wear during the transition between winter and spring. NOW is the time to shop for all of your favorite spring trends. You can find them at an Active location near you!

Spring looks put together by Active Employees:

The WORKSHOP is an ever-developping mobile art exhibit where your hands, your voice, and our actions come together to build the future we want.

We created the WORKSHOP to be a mouth piece for Active’s brands that give back to our world; brands like OBEYElementGIRL Skateboards and more. Our hope is that through the WORKSHOP we would encourage more people to buy products that serve a purpose… to broadcast tangible change with their voice, and more importantly, their actions.

Once you go Stance you NEVER go back!

Have you ever tried on a pair of Stance socks? If your answer is no, you better get some on your feet!

Stance is a company that puts its focus on producing unique and quality socks. The company initially concentrated on men’s socks and last holiday season they launched their women’s line. With the current sock trend, they didn’t go unnoticed. Their offering directly relates to popular trends in fashion.  For example, their socks come in a variety of prints, textures, and thicknesses. Stance also makes their socks in different lengths such as no shows, crew, and boot. Whatever your style may be, Stance has a sock for you! I guarantee that you won’t want to take them off! You can find women’s Stance socks at Active Ride Shop in Burbank, Santa Monica, Chino Hills, Thousand Oaks, Long Beach, El Segundo, Rancho Cucamonga, Corona, Temecula, and Brea.

In honor of Style Week OC, our good friends at TOMS hosted a Style Your Sole event at our Irvine Spectrum store a few weeks ago. Their creative team brought out their best artists to decorate and style our shopper’s “souls.” There was a DJ on hand, a photo booth, not to mention TOMS cupcakes! The night was filled with fun, friends, and music!  A great way to spend a Friday night.  Check out some of the photos below.  More photos to come from the event, and our Photobooth!
