Learn Your Style

Sure, there are plenty of ideas of standard yoga fashion, but that doesn’t mean one size fits all. To really make a splash in the studio, find out what it is that makes your clothing meter tick. Yoga clothes come in a variety of styles, from fierce and fitted to flowy and loose. Start to play around with Pinterest and pin the looks you love. When you start to notice themes develop — bright patterns, solid neutrals, etc. — you’ll have a better idea of what your style really is. Take stock of what’s in your closet and see if it sparks ideas for your next yoga style adventure. Whatever you do, be sure to do you!

Mix and Match

Yoga outfits typically include leggings, tops, bras and even outerwear. This gives you plenty of opportunities to mix and match separates to fit your own design. Think about pairing patterned pants with a solid tops (or vice versa) to bring out certain colors. Take it a step forward and pair two different patterns in coordinating colors for a serious style adventure! Put your own spin on things by switching things up now and again for a real signature style.

Go Name Brand

It can be easy to pick up generic yoga gear at your local department store, but name brand attire comes with name brand quality that lasts. Next time you’re looking for yoga gear, try items from the likes of Glyder, Varley and Onzie to keep you authentically fashionable during your next class. With items made of quality materials, you can rest assured during Savasana that your yoga clothes were made to last.

Try Something New

Seeing the same people week-to-week in your local yoga studio or free outdoor yoga class can get a bit repetitive, like doing one too many Sun Salutations. To shake things up, try yoga attire, you might not have otherwise explored. Look into a subscription service like YogaClub that sends you fresh and new pieces of brand name clothing each month. This way you can expand your horizons (without breaking your budget). You might even be pleasantly surprised by what styles and brands you love!

Shop Responsibly

Many yoga brands know how to make quality clothes without sacrificing the environment or their business ethics. Teeki boasts breathable, wicking attire made from recycled plastic water bottles while Manduka presents a 100 percent transparency policy ensuring honesty in all they do. Another brand we love, Jala seeks out family-owned suppliers and uses processes that cut down on toxic chemical waste. These companies and more are changing the way we think about yoga attire production, and you can try their products at a fraction of the price with a YogaClub membership.
