We all know that yoga pants are made for doing yoga. But at Drishti, we are firm believers that yoga pants are actually made for wearing ALL the time.
As yoga clothing and atheisure styles continue to expand and get more streetwear savvy, it becomes all the more acceptable to basically never take your yoga clothing off. We are SO on board with that. This blog is for those of you who are looking for a few tips on how to keep that studio-to-street style fresh, or still aren't convinced that yoga pants really can be dressed up (really!). Read on for Drishti's three tips for sporting your yoga pants any time, any day!
1. Pair leggings with on-trend footwear.
Your favorite pair of cute ankle boots, strappy sandals, or high top tennies all pair really well with athleisure leggings. Pick a shoe that helps highlight your favorite details on your yoga pants. Maybe you love the mesh cut-outs on the knee. Boots go great with mesh, giving it an edgy feel! Or perhaps you're a gal who is all about the bold sporty print (definitely a tennies look!). Right now, we are all about the boot / legging combo... can you tell? :)
2. Layers, Layers, Layers!
Here's how we wear our yoga leggings on the daily, ladies: 1. Throw on a flowy tank that's longer in the body. 2. Add a slouchy sweater or jean jacket on top. 3. Pair cute street-wear shoes and accessories: hobo bag, infinity scarf, chunky necklace, lipstick (always!). This creates a totally urban look that easily transitions to the yoga studio or gym. Just peel off a few of those layers and you are back in yogi action!

We hinted at this before, but this is the perfect way to dress up your leggings. Add a few of your favorite pieces of jewelry, throw on a cute pair sunglasses or a floppy hat - or for a more business casual look, a cute blazer - all of these additions will spruce up the look making your yoga leggings a perfectly hip part of your #OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) :)
Yoga pants can truly be worn in almost ANY situation. Experiment a bit, and you may be amazed! There are SO many options available that can match your personal style and wardrobe needs. With the right accessories and the right attitude, you can make an amazing outfit with just about any pair of yoga pants - and we highly recommend it! Comfort and style have finally found everlasting love <3
