Tik Tik Tik Titika Boom


I am *excited* about today’s featured brand. For one thing, they are Canadian – Titika Active Couture (hereby Titika) was created and is still designed to this day in Toronto. For another, as someone who works out on the regular, I have to tell you what a h-u-g-e difference cute activewear can make in motivating you to get off the couch to s-l-i-m down. Although…that’s not all Titika is about. Their gear has a ton of design and chicness behind it, with ripped-from-the-runway inspiration and plenty of pieces meant for lounging and hitting the town, amongst their more traditional gym fare. Today I’ve handpicked a few of my faves – all of which would make swell gift ideas for the gym bunnies and lounge ladies alike in your life.

Titika LeggingsRomanesque Leggings – $106 + Notradame Leggings – $88 + Simone Crops – $68
These chic leggings above pretty much demonstrate what I was talking about in terms of the day-to-night, gym-to-drinks appeal of Titika’s clothing. Made from super comfortable, moisture wicking Supplex Lycra, these pants will hug your body like nobody’s business and won’t ride up whether you’re rocking a downward dog or on mile 10 if your spin class. The chic mesh panels on the side not only look sexy, they also provide extra ventilation. But perhaps what’s even cooler, if you’ll pardon the pun, is the fact they can easily be dressed up for a night on the town post-barre class. Throw on a tunic or a knit sweater and you’ve instantly got a chic girl on the go look.

Titika E-Cozy Sweater BE-Cozy Sweater B – $138
You know how sometimes when you’re watching an ep of Project Runway, Heidi will say something akin to, “A million girls would kill for that sweater”? That’s sort of how I feel about this chic, versatile cotton sweater that’s the latest incarnation of one of Titika’s most popular products. Rendered in plum purple and classic black, this drapey sweater can be worn loose or tied up for a cool to-the-gym or post-gym smoothies look over your leo or sports bra. But I also think it works equally well with a pair of jeans, or with one of the aforementioned trendsetting Titika leggings. Or you know…don’t go out at all. Wrap yourself in its snuggly softness, settle down for a cup of tea, and just bask in the fact you are probably in the 1% in terms of coziest people in the world.

Titika Carren PantCarren Pant – $78
If you’re looking for straight up workout gear because you’re shopping for someone who actually hits the gym on the regular, than you can’t go wrong with these punchy leggings. In fact, Titika offers tons of ‘bottoms‘ in multiple lengths – from full-lengths like those above, to crops, to shorts. Their workout-geared pants in particular are all made from Supplex Lycra, a material known for its anti-shrink, anti-wrinkle properties (plus it wicks moisture away during your workout so your body doesn’t have to exert as much energy in trying to cool you down). For whatever reason, I kept on gravitating back to these black leggings with two bright pops of colour – but if you want something a little more subtle, the same style is also available with lace panels in the same spots.

Titika JacketsRunners Jacket B – $98 + Munich Jacket – $88
People abroad must think we’re nuts. As soon as the weather pops above zero in the winter (and even when it stays well below) I see plenty of folks zipping up in their performance gear and going for a jog in the snow. If you’re shopping for someone that’s content to pound the snow-packed pavement, then consider outfitting them with one of Titika’s quick-dry, active jackets. They actually offer much more heavy duty options than the two I’ve highlighted above, but these two appealed to me for their versatility. If you are going through a ‘mild’ bout of winter and don’t want to sweat it out in your parka en route to the gym, a lightweight zip up is a great way to keep the heat in and cold out for that sprint from the car to the building. It can also be layered under other pieces as a way to stay warm while wicking away any sweat that can build up while say, skating with your guy at an outdoor rink (bonus points for the high neck on both of these to offer that much more protection). And as with virtually all of Titika’s pieces , they also make swell loungewear for when you just feel like putting on something touchably soft.

Titika ClutchClutch – $22
Fitness wear doesn’t usually scream ‘clutch bag!’ but hear me out on this one. Titika offers two versions – basic black and the gold embroidered style you see above – of small clutch bags that are the definition of multi-purpose. They’re classy enough that you could easy nab one from your backpack and stuff it with essentials for a post-workout night on the town. But while you’re getting your sweat on, they also serve a purpose at the gym. Because of their water-resistant lining, you can stash things like your sweaty sports bra or swimsuit to keep them apart from your other (presumably dry) things. Or to flip things in reverse, you can use the case as protection for things you definitely don’t want to come into contact with your fitness gear; like toiletries, a change of underwear, or electronics. The price point is just right too, making this an affordable introduction to the brand for a good friend that’s receiving a gift from you this Christmas.

Titika Sports BrasEra Bra – $32 + Virtual Bra – $44 + Inferno Bra – $40
How many different ways can one reinvent the humble sports bra? Apparently dozens, if you take a peek at Titika’s ‘Bras‘ section alone (keep in mind – they’re regularly adding new designs!) While the brand offers some more traditional cuts, they also push the style factor up by experimenting with unique strap placements and cutouts that allow your back to stay cool – and look pretty damn hot. Of course, pretty isn’t overpowering practical. All of Titika’s sports bras are still designed with performance in mind, with four-way stretch, removable cups, and a good amount of support. These inspired sports bras are particularly ace for the hot yoga maven in your midst; if you’ve ever sweated your way through a class suddenly you’ll get why open back or sheer tees are so popular in the yoga community – although really, these’ll work for any workout. Be sure to check out the alternate colours available for the styles I highlighted above!

While I’ve highlighted six product types above, there’s way more on offer at Titika – which also operates shops throughout Southern Ontario for those of you looking to try their gear on for yourself. Want a cute tank to show off your sexy new sports bra? They’ve got you literally covered. Looking for some cute fitness-oriented stocking stuffers? Try out one of their bang-banishing no-slip headbands. Ultimately I’ll wrap things up by saying ‘watch this space’. Titika has already made an impressive splash in the Ontarian market (and online shoppers across Canada, for those in the know, which now includes you) and I see great, great things for them in the future.

Oh, and I see great, great things for you too. Titika is giving you the chance to pick out a top and bottom of your choice (subject to sizing availability of course), so you can sweat off your holiday calories in style (or you know…lounge in style).
