hen the likes of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid decided to take yoga pants to the streets, it automatically became a fashion sensation. Who wouldn’t like comfortable-stylish? No woman ever. This athleisure wear seamlessly cuts across women of diverse shapes and age groups, however, the trick here is to wear your size.

Yoga pants come in various styles like sweatpants, wide-leg yoga pants, and capris. Although initially made for athletics, style influencers have gotten creative with this outfit and are rocking it everywhere. From the gym to the park, going to grab a coffee to catching a flight, this outfit is must wear. Get your right fit and slay the heck out of it.

1. Layer up
Don’t just stop at T-shirt, throw on a trench coat for that layered look. Certainly, you’ll upgrade your whole ensemble and go from exhausted at-home mummy to super stylish Jessica. Don’t be surprised when other moms ask you for style advice at the next PTA meeting.
2. Make a statement with accessories
Accessories are a fashion girl’s best friend and for good reason. They can add a glam and edgy vibe to any look, depending on how you use them. Undoubtedly, go from zero to hundred by glamming up your look with a statement bag and sunglasses.
3. Neutral colors
If you’re looking for a safe way to try out this trend, don’t feel the need to pull up your creative side by wearing your yoga pants in floral. When styling for the first time, opting for neutral shades like black, beige, tan, etc. is a great way to get started. This is because neutrals tend to flatter the figure and are able to work with any pairing.
4. Two piece
Thanks to the ever evolving fashion industry, you can now rock your favorite yoga pants as a two piece. Whether you’re sticking to the hues of fall in browns and burnt orange, or like Lupita you’re going against the grain in yellows, there’s enough style to go round.
