You could be forgiven for thinking that all baselayers looked the same. With the athletic fit, basic shades of black, grey, or pastel hues of blue, pink or purple that are normally on offer for women, the only choice you are really given is whether you want a contrasting colour on the chest stitching or not. Luckily one of the original innovators of merino wool baselayers, Icebreaker, have released a line of baselayer tops that combine functionality with gorgeous colours and prints that will easily take you from the hills or slopes and into the pub.
The Flourish Oasis Crewe is 200gm midweight merino wool fabric, with a choice of dip-dye colours of blue, pink or purple, and a botanical scene on the bottom left hip. The shoulder sleeves are offset so there is no annoying hem-rubbing on the shoulders from rucksacks, and flatlock stitching to avoid chafing. This lightweight, odour-resistant and breathable baselayer comes in a ‘Bodyfit’ design that comes a fashion fit with athletic movement. The Flourish Oasis Crewe is the perfect wardrobe addition to weekend trips outdoors with friends, or ski holidays!
