Admit it: you'd rather wear your yoga leggings than "real" pants anytime. They're just so darn comfortable! And you're not alone - the athleisure clothing industry was responsible for roughly $442 million in sales in during 2016, and shows no sign of slowing down.
Some women feel self-conscious wearing yoga pants to work, to run errands, or anyplace besides the gym or the yoga studio. But there are ways to make this comfortable choice a stylish one, too. Read on!
One easy way to incorporate leggings into your everyday wear is to think of them more like tights. Try wearing them with a belted mini dress and knee-high boots for a polished office look.
A pencil skirt that's the same color as your yoga leggings, paired with a feminine button-up blouse and chic ballet flats, is another professional style that is as easy-to-wear as it is attractive.
For a more casual look -- think Saturday farmer's market trip or Sunday brunch with the girls -- start with a pair of yoga leggings and then layer, layer, layer.
A chunky oversize sweater or colorful poncho are great choices, since a boxier silhouette will enhance the slim, sleek line of your leggings. Flat ankle boots turn this outfit into a practical but stylish look for sightseeing or strolling around the museum.
One surefire way to make sure you're not mistaken for a woman on her way to the gym? Pair your yoga leggings with one super-glamorous piece. This could be a pleated silver mini, a sequined tunic, or even a dressy tuxedo-style jacket worn over a crisp white button-down.
Just don't overdo the glitz -- remember that when you're choosing sparkly or glittery pieces, less is always more.
If you wear your yoga leggings with a performance tank top and your usual sneakers, you will definitely give the impression that you just finished a workout. Similarly, yoga pants with a football jersey or a baggy pullover hoodie might be the ultimate in comfort for those Netflix-on-the-couch afternoons, but look a bit too sloppy for when you're actually going to leave the house.
To create a casual, athletic-inspired style, try a fitted graphic tee with a bomber jacket layered over top, and a pair of old-school Adidas or even Vans. No-show socks are a must here.
Even if you're not a girly-girl, you can find a way to sport yoga leggings without looking like a slob.
Are you the type of girl who wouldn't dream of wearing Uggs with your yoga pants, and wouldn't be caught dead drinking a Pumpkin Spice Latte? Not to worry, we still have a stylish look for you.
Choose an oversized plaid flannel shirt, buttoned up to the neck. Over that, you'll want to don a V-neck cardigan, left unbuttoned. A fedora, some chunky spectacles, and a pair of menswear-inspired oxfords completes this funky, hipster-esque look for the millennial who's anything but "basic."
No matter what your style, Electro Threads has a pair of yoga pants that will suit you to a T. Take a look at the wide variety we have in stock -- and wear your yoga leggings with pride!
