5 Ways to Bring Your Personal Style into the Yoga Studio

Your personal style is a big deal. After all, you’ve spent years honing in on exactly what it is. Just think about the contents of your closet. There’s that sweater you’ve had for years that always feels like home and that little black dress that makes you feel like you can take on the world. Your personal style is just one way of expressing your personality and telling the world who you are. Why shouldn’t you bring that style into the yoga studio?

Your yoga wardrobe doesn’t have to be all one-style-fits-all black leggings and drab, baggy T-shirts from that work retreat five years ago. With the recent explosion of athletic wear, there are more looks to choose from than ever. With a little extra planning, you can build a yoga wardrobe that perfectly fits your personality. Here are a few things to consider when shopping for your next yoga outfit.

1. Comfort

Yoga apparel is notoriously comfy, made from material designed to move and stretch with your body. Not all leggings are created equal, though. You want to find the perfect cut and fit for your body so that you’re able to move comfortably during your practice. For some people this may mean a high-waisted legging. For others it could mean a pair of loose-fitting joggers. Comfort is a key aspect of style, and nowhere is it more important than in the yoga studio.

2. Colors

When it comes to yoga apparel, basic black and hippy earth tones are so yesterday (unless that’s your thing, of course). Athletic wear now comes in every color under the sun, so you’re sure to find something in your favorite hue. Want to hit the mat in head-to-toe pink? The perfect sports bra and shorts combo for you is definitely out there.

3. Patterns

One of the best ways to show off your personal style in the yoga studio is to incorporate cool prints and patterns into your wardrobe. Designers have branched out to create garments in every pattern imaginable, so you’ll be sure to find one that’s uniquely you. Dreaming of exploring outer space? Slip into a cool pair of galaxy leggings. Ready to go hard on the mat? There’s a camo crop top out there with your name on it.

4. Unique cuts

There’s more to yoga style than stretchy leggings and tank tops. Designers are now creating pieces for their athletic collections that would be just as welcome on the runway as they are in the yoga studio. Try an open-back top to stay cool during a Bikram class or a pair of cut-out leggings for a unique look. With so many options, you’ll be sure to find a look you can easily transition to brunch after class.
