Out­door Style

A blend of fash­ion and func­tion, ac­tivewear is found in just about ev­ery­one’s wardrobe these days. It doesn’t mat­ter if you’re a com­pet­i­tive ath­lete or a leisurely par­tic­i­pant. Look­ing good is what counts.

Time spent out­side in the fresh air could be a day of beach­comb­ing on Sani­bel Is­land. It might be a brisk run through the city streets of Fort My­ers or an in­vig­o­rat­ing game of ten­nis or golf at a coun­try club in Bonita Springs. Which­ever ac­tiv­ity you choose, here are some fash­ions to make you stand out. 1 THE BEACHCOMBER Quite the show­stop­per, the Cannes Cropped Rash­guard top ($135) from Sus­tain­able Sea’s Vi­ta­min A col­lec­tion works both on and off the beach. Its Mod Print fab­ric is made from re­cy­cled plas­tic bot­tles. Pair it with the Lu­ciana Clas­sic Hip­ster Bikini Bot­tom ($99) for some fash­ion­able beach­comb­ing. Or match it with your fa­vorite jeans for a midriff-bar­ing look when out with friends. Avail­able at Ev­ery­thing But Wa­ter in Peri­win­kle Place on Sani­bel Is­land or at ev­ery­thing­but­wa­ter.com. 2 VI­SOR READY Shade your pretty face from the Florida sun as you search for seashells with this Wo­ven Straw Base­ball Cap ($38) by Wyeth Hats. Its rounded crown makes for an easy fit and a gros­grain lin­ing adds an el­e­ment of com­fort. With tex­tured straw, the cap is a nat­u­ral for the beach. Avail­able at Ev­ery­thing But Wa­ter in Co­conut Point Town Cen­ter in Es­tero or at ev­ery­thing­but­wa­ter.com. 3 SHELL CATCHER This dark navy Fish­er­man-Style Mesh Large Tote ($48) by Sea Star Beach­wear is ideal for col­lect­ing shells, but not the sand. It’s made from wa­ter-friendly, quick-dry­ing neo­prene. Be­sides be­ing light­weight and durable, it can ac­tu­ally float. So no wor­ries if you drop it in the ocean or it falls off the boat.

Lay­er­ing is the key to this run­ning out­fit from Adi­das by Stella McCart­ney. It works for rain or shine when train­ing out­doors in cooler months. Start with the Run Ul­tra Long Sleeve top made of Clima­heat fab­ric. The Run Long Tights de­signed with a shiny wet-look fab­ric and re­flec­tive snake­tape de­tail­ing has a bonded waist­band con­struc­tion and draw-cord for the ul­ti­mate fit. Layer up the look with the light­weight Run Adizero Short, and for pro­tec­tion from the el­e­ments add the Cli­mas­torm Run Ul­tra Jacket. Your feet will love the fu­tur­is­ticde­signed Ul­traBoost X All Ter­rain shoe ($270). Lace­less with a primeknit up­per, the shoe has height and an out­sole per­fect for run­ning in wet con­di­tions. For pric­ing and avail­abil­ity visit adi­das.com.


Pretty and fem­i­nine, this look from LIJA is a fresh take on ten­nis dress­ing. The Ruf­fle Tank ($75) has a sim­ple scoop-neck sil­hou­ette with good cov­er­age at the back. A lovely asym­met­ri­cal ruf­fle on one side of the front ends just over the shoul­der. Pair it with the Top­spin Skort ($95), one of LIJA’s most pop­u­lar items. The 13inch skort has kick pleats at both the front and the back to give it some spunk. Avail­able at li­jastyle.com

6 THE GOLFER This hot pink Long-Sleeve Zip Tech Polo ($90) by Golf­tini breaks away from tra­di­tional polo styling by adding soft ruched cuffs and mesh de­tail­ing along sides of waist and in­ner arm sleeves. The top pairs eas­ily with fun and func­tional golf sko­rts ($90-$128) in var­i­ous solids and prints. Most sko­rts are avail­able in two lengths: 17.5 and 19 inches. Fab­rics are non-wrin­kle blends of polyester and span­dex, as well as a stretch cot­ton blend, for great fit and move­ment.

The Splat­terific Stretch Tech Skort ($79.50) doesn’t wrin­kle, shrink or fade. Its fab­ric has mois­ture con­trol for com­fort on a hot day. Pair this cute skort with a solid top and you’re sure to cause a riot of color on the tee.
