With the overwhelming popularity of activewear, VELA Apparel is a breath of fresh air! In contrast to the mass-produced, beach-inspired looks that currently saturate the activewear space, VELA is a refreshing take on the category as a Colorado-based brand that boasts mountain vibes. With the temperatures steadily dropping, this is the perfect time to trade the coast for the slopes with VELA’s mountain-ready apparel.
VELA is designed for those who love the look and versatility of activewear yet are tired of seeing the same styles and catch-phrase graphics. Instead, all of their artwork is totally original, designed exclusively in-house by local artisans. Their designs also reflect the spirit and principles on which VELA was founded. That’s why they also manufacture all their products using sustainable materials without sacrificing functionality or style.
Adventure Ready Clothing at VELA Apparel
Their name is derived from the constellation Vela, which in Latin means “the sails.” Vela would appear above the Mediterranean Sea in spring and appear to sail across the sky throughout the summer. A constellation in the shape of a sailing ship wandering the night sky encapsulates the adventurous spirit of their designs and customers.
Nothing says winter is coming more than the crisp coolness in the air and the warm fuzzy feeling that VELA’s clothing provides! Some of their new styles include the Piney Moose Cropped Windbreaker ($65; pictured), Buffalo Camp Mug ($15), Buffalo Mid Length Pullover ($58; pictured), Buffalo Mid Length Pullover ($58), Seal & Salmon Jogger Pants ($70), and Ski Girl Flannel Button Up ($68). The pieces that I received from VELA provide the utmost comfort for the wearer. Honestly, you will not want to pry them off since these pieces are that comfortable!
VELA is still competitive in the activewear industry, with prices ranging from $20 to $74, while also providing a higher-quality product created in the United States and supporting local artisans. Vela Apparel is the perfect place to discover adventure-ready apparel + home decor. They strive to give you and your home something to nourish and stay connected with nature and adventure – with a wand of creativity!
