Spots easily flush away with water. The Stain Shield repellant lasts up to 30 washes.
No Stain White Jeans powered by Stain Repellent Bright White™ technology will be available in boutiques and online in Spring 2019. In addition to repelling stains for up to 20 washes, the new technology helps prevent yellowing in the wash, ensuring crisp white denim for up to 25 washes.
As part of Chico’s ZENERGY® collection, active wear with UVA and UVB protection will be launched in Spring 2019. The new tops and bottoms will use No Sun technology that provides UPF 50+ protection and repels UVA and UVB rays.
