You might have noticed a new trend while out and about in your neighborhood. Maybe you’ve noticed it in the grocery store, or at the park while watching your kids play, or even sitting down to lunch in your favorite café. Activewear is not just for the gym anymore.
Ladies everywhere are opting to wear active wear clothing on a regular basis, even when they aren’t exercising or even planning to exercise. In fact, they have become an everyday clothing item the way most people used to wear jeans. Along with leggings, yoga pants are the form fitting and oh-so-comfortable piece of clothing that no woman seems to be able to do without.
You might be feeling uncomfortable with the idea of wearing yoga pants as regular clothes, but still, the absolute freedom and comfort call to you every time you see one of your friends relaxing without a care in the world.
It is time to bring a little Zen to your life, so meditate on these tips for wearing yoga pants:
Wear Pants That Fit
Wearing yoga pants that are either too big or too small is not a good look for anyone. Too big yoga pants will look as ill-fitting as they will feel, and the slouchy look they will give you, especially in the buttocks area, is just not attractive. Too small yoga pants will accentuate any tiny imperfection in your body, not to mention make you look bigger.
Check a Mirror
Some yoga pants just aren’t made to be worn outside at all. Check to make sure your pants are opaque enough to be modest and aren’t showing everything you’ve got through the fabric. It is a good idea to test them out in the daylight or shine some bright lights at yourself to make sure you can’t see through your pants.
Think of yoga pants as thicker leggings and you can wear them with any outfit that you would normally wear with leggings. Layering your tops is a great look, especially if you wear a long cardigan.
Watch Your Lines
Since yoga pants are rather snug, you have to watch how well you might be showing off your panty lines. Try wearing seamless underwear or even a thong to prevent this common issue.
There are so many fun patterns and colors, but as a novice yoga pants wearer, you might want to stick to neutral colors. Dark blue, brown, and black really go with just about anything and are so much easier to pull off for everyday outfits.
Yoga pants outside the gym are here to stay, so you might as well know just how to pull them off. Use these tips to incorporate regular yoga days into your wardrobe, and enjoy all of the comfortable simplicity they have to offer.
