ZUMBA® Fitness, the workout that has helped melt the pounds and inches off 12 million fitness enthusiasts, has an exciting new spring/summer collection that transitions easily from sweating it out in the gym to strolling the streets thanks to the vibrant colors and exciting silhouettes that have become a signature of the brand.
Dubbed the “Universe” collection, the pieces combine the vibrancy of the workout which it mirrors with light weight materials and free flowing designs to keep you moving through any warm weather routine.
ZUMBA® Wear’s spring/summer collection features galactic prints, cropped silhouettes and asymmetrical cuts designed using licensed ZUMBA® instructors as its models to represent the brand’s diverse and expressive community. Motivated by the energy and passion of these ZUMBA® instructors from more than 185 countries across the globe, the “Universe” collection is an eclectic cultural mix of design inspiration and passion people feel when they experience ZUMBA® Fitness. I have to say after almost 10 years in the Zumba community I am impressed that they have started adding variety to their models as far as size and shape.
They have also added variety to their clothing line. This has to be one of the largest lines released to date that Zumba has offered and they have revamped their shopping experience as well, made it easier, aesthetically pleasing and streamlined – just like their clothing. No longer is Zumbawear just for sporting to Zumba class, pieces can be worn outside of the gym too!
For example, the Solar Burst Top in white (Shine Bright in New Gear with the White Story) is a soft lightweight cotton blend that can be worn high on the waist or low on the hip thanks to the contrasting color waistband. Think comfy boyfriend top made a little more feminine and a lot more sexy, with kangaroo pockets and an off the shoulder wide boat neck. This shirt is so versatile I can wear it out with the kids and still breastfeed – that is a feat for fashionable clothing. Now you could pair this top with your favorite slim jeans or you could go full Zumbawear all the way and snag a pair of Hubble Hubble Leggings and show your Zumba Love all the way.
Don’t forget that Zumba has a full line of clothing and accessories, including iPhone cases, jewelry and even socks. From experience I can say that their socks can’t be beat with their velvety nylon microfiber material they are my go to pair of socks – in or out of a Zumba class. My kids actually steal my Zumba socks to wear for themselves and I always get questions about where I get my colorful comfy socks from when I pad around the studio in them.
Zumba really has hit the mark not just on fun fitness classes but on creating versatile clothing that is functional as dancewear and fashionable on the streets. Cost is also a big factor and before you look at the price tags and think they are a little more than you want to spend consider the cost of some of the top athletic apparel companies out there – Zumba is in line with, if not less expensive than, many well known athletic wear brands with the bonus of being Zumbawear offered from one of the hottest companies for dance classes, music and now clothing. Zumba has been around for over a decade and they are only getting bigger so shop the collection at zumba.com/shop to be a part of the party.
I received the Solar Burst Top and one pair of Zumba socks for review. I was not compensated in any way for my review, the opinions expressed are given freely. I have been a ZIN member and Zumba Instructor since 2007.
