When it comes to choosing the right yoga wear, comfort is key along with looking good, of course. Be the envy of your yoga classes with some of my favorites:
Best Yoga Tops
Form fitting tops that don't bind are essential. You want something that will not ride up during inversion positions but still allow for a large range of motion. Lots of tanks are easy to layer, so as your yoga class heats up, you can remove layers to remain cool. A must-have for any yoga wardrobe is Fit Approach's signature sweat pink tank tops. Designed for both style and comfort, these tanks are made with soft lightweight fabric and a flattering cut so you can look good while you sweat. They are super comfortable. Fit Approach has plenty of cute yoga gear—everything from yoga laptop skins to yoga mat bags.
Best Yoga Bottoms
It's probably no surprise that yoga pants are the preferred choice. They allow for full range of motion and are available in a wide variety of colors and styles to suit your tastes. Try out some basic yoga poses in the dressing room to figure out what style you feel most comfortable in. You don't have to spend a fortune to find great yoga pants, but Athleta definitely has some of the best ones.
Best Yoga Accessories
You need the right accessories if you want to nail that scorpion position. No one wants her hair flopping into her face while she's twisted up like a pretzel. With Fit Approach's Running Happy non-slip headbands, you can spice up your wardrobe in everything from sparkly pink polka dots to glittery stripes, keeping the pesky flyaway hairs at bay whether you're a yoga novice or teaching the class.
