Comfort and style. A good, quality pair of active tights can do it all.
Wondering how to wear yoga pants every day of the week? Or how to wear yoga pants in public in general? Wonder no more. Lounging around in your activewear is no longer a fashion faux pa. With great styling, your favourite sports leggings easily can take you from the couch to brunch, to the gym seamlessly.
Still weary about whether leggings are pants or not (hint: they totally are)? We have your yoga pants style guide covered so you can enjoy ultimate comfort in any occasion. Here's how to wear yoga pants all day, every day.
12 ways to wear yoga pants every day
1. Layer up
2. Add accessories
Bonus: you don’t even have to buy new pieces! Style your yoga leggings with an oversized handbag and statement sunglasses for a long weekend lunch.
3. Stock up on neutrals
While bright and patterned tights are all the rage now, in a few years time you’ll wish you just invested in a comfortable and always-in-fashion pair of tights that make a statement (in a different way) for years to come.
4. Match with a bright crop
When in doubt, add colour with a crop. Show off your hard work in the gym and switch up your morning coffee run or beat the summer heat with a crop-tights combination. Perfect for boosting your body confidence! Check out our Racerback Sports Bra.
5. Pair with basics
We believe that good clothing basics can take you anywhere, so what better way to show off your eco-friendly wardrobe than to pair a basic tee with your comfy active tights?
6. Pick the right shoe
The shoe you pair with your yoga tights will depend on the occasion and the weather. Add thongs for warmer weather and beach days. Consider a fancy sneaker for a shopping trip. Wear your Birkenstocks with your tights when doing a coffee run or meeting a mate.
7. Work it
Ever wondered how to wear active pants to work? It’s possible with a pair that looks the part. If you’re ready to take the plunge, pair with a longer top that gives the illusion that the pants may, in fact, be work pants. A collared shirt in a lighter fabric would look great – all you need is a trench and some jewellery around your neck to complete the look.
8. Wear under a dress
If you’re a stickler for comfort, sometimes you just want to wear your yoga tights to an afternoon session at the local pub. With a flowy, black dress and a pair of heels, no one will even notice that your stretchy pants are saving the day underneath your glamorous attire.
9. Go country-style
A denim chambray + brown leather boots = a winning combination. Wear over a pair of long tights when the weather starts to turn (around mid-April) and throw over a chunky scarf for those colder days.
10. Never compromise your personal style
Where you would usually wear a pair of jeans, instead give the active pant a try. In no time, you’ll find yourself creating outfits based on what tops and shoes fit together with your favourite pair of tights.
11. Black with a dash of more black
The tone that carries any outfit from average to sophisticated, black is the only accessory you need. Pair your long black yoga leggings with a long sleeve black shirt, a leather jacket and your black Nikes. Fresh as a daisy.
12. Wear with a bomber jacket
Be like Gigi and Kendall and style up your activewear with a bomber jacket. Looks effortlessly chic over a crop and tights, plus it can take you from a heavy sweat session to brunch with your pals.
So, when is it okay to wear yoga pants? We say always. On every occasion. Especially when there’s food involved.
