4. Elevate your active wardrobe with Cheak’s new Recreational Collection
Where: Cheak’s website
“I don’t know about you, but I love me a good set of athleisure wear that I can lounge around in or run errands in comfort without compromising style. While there are plenty of brands in the market that offer this, I was keen to try out the latest Recreational Collection from Singapore’s rising activewear brand, Cheak (formerly known as Butter) after hearing positive reviews from a friend. The collection consists of functional and flexible pieces including tennis-style dresses and sets, cropped hoodies and joggers, as well as the brand’s signature sports bras in fresh colourways.
“While I wished I had gotten my hands on the Courtside Bra and Skirt in time for BURO’s recent tennis training session, I opted for the Cozy Cropped Hoodie and Cozy Cropped Jogger in Sundae for everyday comfort instead. What impressed me the most was how buttery smooth the fabric felt on my skin—it is easily the softest material I have ever worn to date. The size and length of the set are just right for my petite frame, which I personally prefer over the intended cropped look (as pictured on the model).
“On the other hand, I also tried out the Whip Curved Tank that’s equally comfy and effortlessly chic. My favourite thing about it is how it’s versatile enough to wear for light workouts (like yoga) or styled as a crop top with a skirt, shorts or jeans and outerwear. Now I want more Cheak sets and tanks in other colours!” —Natalie Khoo, Deputy Editor
