playtime with the principle jacket

The Principle Jacket is a playful jacket, made for women who love to find joy in their workouts, their errands, and amidst all the madness of their days. Here are a couple of women who create time for joy and playfulness, and find it easy to do so with all the details of the Principle Jacket.

Perfect Spring jacket for sweating!

Heather is an educator at our downtown San Diego Showroom. She is a dancer, former USC song girl, a sweat enthusiast, and a San Diego Charger girl hopeful!

Getting ready for tryouts and enjoying spring, she loves the Principle Jacket for warm-ups, to and from pilates, and of course random tricep dips.

Emily and Heather are good friends, and Em has vowed to help Heather tone up for the Charger tryouts. Also a former dancer and rolling with Heather, it goes without saying that Emily herself has a bit of spice, and a definite sashay in her step.

Emily tends to get cold during lessons. Being spring in San Diego she's retired her Remix Hoodie for daytime, and has recruited the Principle Jacket as a light option to keep her warm. The jacket is made of our signature luon fabric, which means Emily can sweat and move with Heather confidently knowing it will wick right up.

Emily is free to move with Heather, but still feel and show that she's in charge. Make her sweat Em!

After torturing Heather for an hour, they somehow resolve to remain friends and take a few minutes to relax, and discuss Heather's next step in becoming a Charger Girl.

playing with details

A great feature of the Principle jacket is its flexible, moldable collar, which is ribbed for texture and structure.

There are dozens of ways to wear this collar. Here are three of the favourites: 1. Unzip it and open it up for a little colour and to welcome a breeze. 2. Zip it almost to the top to keep your neck and chest warm.  3. Zip it halfway and fold it over to let your shoulders and neck breathe.

The back of the jacket definitely adds a bit of sass to your day. Tyra Banks would probably see you from behind, shake her finger and mumble, "girl is fieerrrcce."

There is also a long zipper around your wrists that can be opened and closed to accommodate your changing body temperature.

I LOVE my principle jacket, it’s lined in the bldb (my favorite color from lulu thus far!) I wear it with my gather and crow pants, knee high boots, bldb modern racer tank, and then unzip the sleeves of the jacket and flip them back for extra color splash! Perfect outfit to go from yoga to drinks with the girls!

Don’t forget to play with the cuffs too!

When I give the collar a bit of flare I love to not just unzip the cuffs but fold the hem over slightly to give it some more pow and show the under colour.

Love this jacket, just something a lil fancy for pre-warm up and to & from.

I actually got the chance to meet Heather when I made my first visit into San Diego lulu a week ago. She is just as sweet on the inside as she is beautiful on the out. I wish her much luck in her tryout and am so enjoying my gather and crow crops that she helped me pick out. I guess I’ll have to make a trip back to try on that principle jacket. Great segment!!!

I started bikram’s yoga 2 weeks ago. I noticed that I may have lost a bit of weight around my center! HOw is this possible when I’m not really doing any cardio or vigorous exercise? Bikram’s is challenging but I never would have thought that doing 2 reps for each of the 26 poses could achieve such results so quickly!>

Does anyone not notice a line across their chest from this jacket? I had to return mine because it looked so awful. In the most of the pictures, I see these women have it as well? Maybe I’m just too picky but I like my clothes to fit smoothly.

Hey Andrea,

I did not notice a line across the chest at all actually. Could it have been from folding the jacket? It is made a flexible and moldable materials, but I have not yet heard any feedback about a line across the chest.

Sorry this style did not work for you, and thank you for your feedback.
