Race Day Styles On The Track - Alex Wilson
What do you wear when you warm up? How are you trying to feel? What’s your ideal emotion toe-ing the line? How does this affect what you wear? After the race - what do you throw on? It's racing season! We hear from Haute Volée athlete Alex Wilson on how she puts on her powersuit.
WARM UP – WHAT DO YOU WEAR TO GET IN THE ZONE?
When I'm warming up for a race I'm usually wavering the line of excitement and nerves and I feel like unique prints sort of embody that feeling. Spandos in particular help keep me in a positive mindset going into the race. Flyout Tank keeps me cool, dry, and looks seriously awesome paired with Spandos!
STARTING LINE – HOW DO YOU WANT TO FEEL? WHAT DO YOU WEAR? WHY?
Confidence is definitely my ideal emotion when lining up for a race. It's easy to be confident when you’re at home thinking your way through a race, but when you’re standing on the line waiting for the gun to go off it can be a little more difficult and you have to make sure you're able to bring that high level of confidence. Making sure your outfit has you feeling like a badass can only help. Again, I can rely on Spandos to get the job done! Paired with the Plum Portman Shorts - I'm. Feeling. Confident. The waistband fits me just right and I love the side pintuck detailing.

POST RACE GRAPHIC TEE OF CHOICE?
Comfort is the deciding factor in my post-race attire. That feeling post successful race is such a great feeling. After being full of nerves and excitement all day it's nice to just throw on some Lux Track Pants and Oiselle Logo Tee and enjoy being a track spectator for a few hours.
