Yoga is an increasing popular way of exercising. It’s extremely effective and accessible to all. But it’s not just in the studio where yoga wear can be seen. Walk along any high street and you’ll notice scores of women wearing yoga inspired garments.
The increase in popularity of loungewear and yoga wear is due to their ability to be extremely flattering yet comfortable at the same time. There is more of an emphasis on clean lines and fashion-forward styles than in traditional workout wear, and they are often made using high quality materials such as cashmere or organic cotton. This makes them suitable to be worn at all times.
A major yoga inspired trend that has filtered down to the high street is the harem pants.
These are trousers, usually made of a soft, flowing material, that are gathered around the ankle or just below the knee. These are extremely flattering for women of all sizes, and are ideal for yoga because they provide a full range of movement and help you to stay cool. They can even be dressed up with heels to take you through to the evening.
Bright colours are a major current trend in yoga and loungewear. Wellicious has a massive range in a variety of colours not often seen in yoga wear. Their styles will please those with any taste, from the most conservative to the most outgoing. They use organic, ethically traded cotton, so you can feel reassured you’re being socially responsible while enjoying your new yoga wear.
