Seeking: Cute Yoga Clothes, Stat!
Whether you’re new to yoga or an old pro, nothing makes you want to get up and get your Om on like a cute yoga outfit!
There are some seriously stellar yoga duds out there these days: functional, comfortable, and adorable. How awesome is it to not lug around your workout clothes, because they’re cute enough to wear out and about for the rest of your day? And no more excuses for skipping out on yoga class; when you’re wearing your clothes, you can’t forget to bring em along.
If you’re as dedicated to comfort as I am, you’ll be thrilled to have some pieces you can throw on still be cute. Because, let’s be honest, the paint on my favorite sweatpants has never kept me from wearing them in public regardless of how awful they look. And for a yoga class? Well, they just don’t work.
Lululemon: If you’ve been anywhere near a yoga studio recently, you’ve seen a Lululemon logo. This brand has the definition of a cult following. People are obsessed with it, and for good reason. They have a bazillion styles of bras, tops, pants, shorts, anything you need, and all in pretty colors and flattering cuts. I love love love this polka dot number. No shlumpy workout clothes here! They use top quality fabrics that wick away moisture, strategically placed mesh to keep you cool, and you can totally wear them around all day without looking like you’re on your way to work out! As a bonus, they’ll hem any pants for free, so everything will fit you like a dream.
Gaiam is another great line for you yogis. Not only are the clothes super flattering and colorful, but they focus on organic materials and low eco-impact dyes in all of their products, so you can feel good about your purchases. I love these leggings, because not only are they great for yoga, you can toss a tunic-y top over ‘em in the springtime and you are good to go!
Nuala, co-founded by supermodel Christy Turlington with some help from Puma, has a selection of yoga clothes that are great for the crossover of yoga/daily life. Great pieces that fit that fitness-to-running errands bill, like this sweet, strappy printed sport top, are available at Vickerey.com, and of course, at some Puma Stores. Do it up!
If you’re an avid online shopper, fitcouture.com has a huge selection of yoga clothes. Well, they have clothes for pretty much anything sweaty, but we’re talking about yoga here! I love these pants with the colorful detail up top, and this top? Totally bright and cute; I would def wear it in a non-yoga related setting.
