MORNINGS WITH @BIG.CHANTELLE
It takes a lot for Chantelle Silva to get out of bed before 8:00 a.m.—but she would never reveal that through her outfit choices. While some may consider sweatpants and sports bras to be a fashion cop out, effortless and comfortable combinations offer both progressiveness and timelessness. Take one look in the closets of women aspiring for both, and you’ll see activewear is here to stay.
Aside from being trend focused and simply wanting to feel good in what she wears, Chantelle has joined the tribe of women who care about MICHI’s story and why it’s different from the rest. Our Core collection of the most iconic MICHI styles is the essence of MICHI’s DNA, where quality, design, fit and ethical production, all take center stage.
It helps that it’s so easy to work into any part of your outfit (just ask Chantelle). In MICHI Core, you can rock stylish athletic wear for any part of the day without sacrificing your style standards. Here’s how Chantelle is rocking Core morning to night.
If it comes down to one look you can turn to for a killer workout or chilling at home while you start your day, the 3” Band Kinetic Short and Lotus Bra is a great start. Build your day around basics that will start to feel like an instinctual choice, once you experience the way our signature fabrics and waistbands feel comfortable and supportive against your skin. With this set as your base, when you throw over a sweater on your way to the gym, or a jacket to meet friends for coffee, you can trust that you’ll feel coverage and support that’s on trend while still flattering your best assets.

Start your day off feeling cozy in a look like this. Throw a jean jacket or light coat over if you want to step out of the house for a day full of errands.
CORE TO IMPRESS
The day has started and it’s time to get moving, but there’s no way you’re sacrificing comfort. Versatile mesh panels, and an easy color palette of black and white are the reason why your Core essentials don’t need to stay tucked away in the back of your drawer. One Core item can go a long way. Take the Pulse Short in black, for example. It’s as extremely reliable for a high intensity work out as it easily pairs with a button up and sunnies. It adds to the perfect first date look where you can dress to impress, and take comfort in knowing that if your date is a bust you can make a speedy getaway—without the MICHI branded waistband loosening up.
Chantelle in the Pulse Short and Pulse Bra, two ways. Glam up your look in something refreshing and flattering like a crisp white button up, sunnies and a statement purse like this Chloe Pixie Bag. Want to be even more casual? Leave your button up open and throw some cool kicks or sandals with layered jewelry.
CORE ALL YEAR ROUND
The best thing about Core are the options. Our bike shorts take the spot for one of our all time favourites, but what about the rest of Core?
One of the best 80s trends is back and could not work better with this collection as the temperature drops. Socks over your leggings with sneakers keeps the heat in and gives a cool retro vibe. If you’re ahead of the game and already rocking this look, try it with the Stardust Legging next time.
A good jean jacket is essential in any woman or man’s wardrobe and a safe bet for dressing up your Stardust Legging and Bionic Bra. If the temperature has dropped below zero maybe it’s time to switch up your look to the Siren Jumpsuit for more coverage with a solid puffer to help battle the cold while you’re out and about.
