How to Wear Yoga Pants (as an Outfit)

Running around all day in your yoga pants without having any intention of going to the gym (or having gone to the gym for that matter) is unacceptable.

Let me re-phrase that a bit before scolding all of my super comfortable and casual readers. Gym clothing is not an outfit. You can make your yoga pants into an outfit by adding in a few key pieces. Do not give up on life and fashion completely. That is what it looks like when you wear yoga pants all day without ever intending to actually get dressed. The only thing saving you is the current athleisure (athletic + leisure) crazy. Comfy chic is on trend so let’s bring you into the loop.

 

 

The video above is your cheat sheet to taking a basic yoga outfit to the next level. Athletic wear has come SO far leaving you NO excuses for sloppy gym clothing. I was lucky enough to shoot at Phat Buddha and Elie Tahari using the perfect mixture of cute workout clothing and great everyday basics to create fantastic athleisure looks. All of the pieces I used are simple yet stylish options for turning yoga pants into an easy, yet stylish outfit.

Holy bananas. All of the items are pretty basic so another fabulous element is that they can be re-styled and re-styled and re-styled. I would literally wear the sweatpants with heels and a leather bomber to go out at night. I am crazy.

And don’t forget the toppers. That being the great chic and casual items to turn your yoga pants into a full blown look. Again, I picked super accessible items that every lady should own. Obviously you can choose your own version based on your personal lifestyle and taste, but the general idea is there. It really doesn’t take much to go from looking like getting dressed is the most painful part of your day to being the envy of all your friends who wonder how you just turned yoga pants into an outfit?!?

I always say that accessories are the key to taking a look from individual pieces put together to an en-sem-ble. Yes, that is a strong 3 syllable word with an accent on the last E when the outfit is totally fabulous. Let’s not get crazy here, you are wearing yoga pants. All you need is 1-2 pieces of jewelry to pump up your now fabulous yoga pants.

DON’T FORGET THE BEST PART!!!!!

Aside from my awesome model yoga celebrity Kristin McGee, I also rocked some pretty sweet duds from Phat Buddha and Elie Tahari. I know a basic black yoga pant can go pretty far, but don’t forget that exercise clothing can be fun clothing. I LOVE these yoga pants with lace down the side. Business in the front, party on the side. Adding a leather jacket can up the ante of any look instantly. So go ahead and wear those yoga pants proudly all day, everyday. See, comfort and function can go hand in hand. I think this style marriage is gonna last.
