Life is busy, we get it. We’re women that are capable of multi-tasking and kicking goal after goal whether that’s at work, at home, with our children, friends or family - we’re givers without realising it. That’s why it’s so important to give back to ourselves as well. So, consider this your weekly REMINDER to do so.
No matter what body shape or category you fit into, Co Gear is dedicated to helping you find the perfect fit. Our women’s work cargo pants have been specifically designed with flexibility in mind, featuring a soft, stretchy, durable cotton fabric and extendable waistbands. Our maternity work shirt is tailored to fit growing belly’s of all shapes and sizes by using our unique belly dart technology.
Spinning off from last weeks blog, Lucille 4-in-1 Ladies Hi Vis Jacket: Solving working women's workwear frustrations, we had an awesome opportunity to implement feedback received about our hi vis vest and hi vis jacket. If you weren’t already aware, the Lucille 4-in-1 Ladies Hi Vis Jacket comes with a removable vest and detachable hood, giving you the freedom to dress up or down as you please.
It’s not a secret we’ve kept on purpose, but not everyone has seen or felt our women’s work cargo pants in action! The Alison hi vis work cargos and the Carly non hi vis work cargos both share a unique and innovative feature designed specifically for the working woman in mind. This feature is known as an Easy Fit waistband – which is simply an invisible, extendable waistband.
As I’ve moved (very slowly!) through my pregnancy journey, I’ve been lucky enough to test, trial and rock Co Gear's next generation maternity range. In doing this I’ve been able to understand the technology that has gone into the features of these designs and how they’ve been made to grow with you and your baby.
On this specific day of acknowledgement, we celebrate females for their work in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematic fields. February 11th marks this wonderful day for women all around the world. Let’s be sure to thank and support them for what they have contributed to society and the change they are making for generations to come.
Going green. Zero or no waste. Reduce the impact. We have all seen the widespread promotion and the benefits surrounding these topics. But how many of us have started implementing changes in our homes, to help to reduce our waste and carbon footprint? Looking after the environment and everything in it is an important task, that we all need to play a part in. No waste education and looking after the environment can not only be a great activity for conscious families, but also a very fun one!
The definition of mentor is “an experienced and trusted adviser”. In other words, it’s someone that can support you to get from where you are, to where you want to be. There are many benefits to finding the perfect mentor, and women mentoring women can be a very powerful alliance.
The word diet often gets a bad rap and the first things that come to mind is food restriction and lettuce leaves. The reality is that we all have control over how and what we eat, and have the responsibility to nurture our bodies in the way that is best for us. Mindful eating/dieting is a personal arrangement between you and the food you eat, so how can you stick to this when working away from home on a FIFO roster, when the meals are prepared for you?
When Co Gear began as “She’s Empowered”, Kym O’Leary, knew she wanted to cater to women of all body shapes and sizes. This is why our sizes range from a petite 4 to a plus size 26 – contributing to a high quality, sustainable women’s workwear brand that’s made to last.
Last week I had the chance to chat to up coming aviation star and go getter, Ellen Polacsek. Ellen is a part of Women in Aviation – The Australian Chapter (WAI), an amazing organisation that Co Gear has previously collaborated with - creating a scholarship to support aviation students. We absolutely applaud them for the support, encouragement and opportunities that they give women to advance in the aviation and aerospace industries.
