Say goodbye to baggy T-shirts and unflattering workout attire. With so many vibrant colours, prints and flattering cuts, practising yoga has never looked so chic.
Ladies, it’s time to toss that frumpy old T-shirt and joggers in the bin and empower yourself with chic and fashionable yoga gear. Just because you’re hitting the studio, it doesn’t mean you don’t need to feel or look great in what you are wearing. In recent years brands like lululemon and Sweaty Betty have been providing health-conscious women with workout attire that is both chic and functional.
