Introducing Marika tek, our new performance athletic wear designed exclusively for active women looking for the ultimate fit, comfort, and function. Every one of the products has been crafted in high tech fabric for moisture wicking capabilities to provide the optimum workout.

nice, clean stitching

These shirts are comfortable, super soft, and definitely athletic looking.
They can be mixed and matched with other Marika pieces or basically with any item you already have in your closet.

It's perfect for the gym, yoga, pilates, or jogging -- perfect for both indoor and outdoor activities.

I love how they can also be worn for other purposes -- to run errands or just for plain everyday wear.
I like to wear mine for when I go walking, but I love to wear it more when I'm just at home -- it's super comfy and perfect for the hot weather.

Available in S-M-L-XL

As for sizing, I got a size small -- it hugs your body, so if you prefer more loose-fitting shirts, it's probably best to order a size up.
(You can use the size chart above as a guide.)

Available colors: Ultra Violet and Fandango Pink

Both colors are flattering and fun for sports and for everyday wear.
I also like the stitching -- each shirt has a contrast neon stitched trim and panel (lime green on the violet and neon yellow on the pink).

Price: $28
