3 Ways to Transform Yoga Wear into Street Clothes

If you’re anything like the rest of us, chances are good your schedule is busy. You’re dreaming of a laid-back lifestyle, but living in a big city makes you move faster and faster. You have too many things to do and too little time for things you really love. Under such pressure, it is getting exceptionally difficult to make room for exercise! Sometimes you even have to skip your daily workouts for the sake of staying on top of your work or other commitments. Let’s face it: working out takes time. You need to get to the location of your workout (gym, running trail, yoga studio, whatever), change your clothes, actually work out, get a shower, change your clothes back, and move on with your day. These all take time — a lot of time!

The good news is that you can save yourself some time by easily transforming your yoga clothes into street wear. Surprised? There’s no need to be. Your yoga clothes can be easily turned into street clothes. Here’s how:

Keep Yoga Pants On & Change Your Shirt

Unless your yoga pants are some out-of-the-wall print of Spongebob or Cinderella (and there’s nothing wrong with that), they can make a good basis for your daily look. Black or gray yoga pants can look perfectly good with a light or colored T-Shirt or blouse. Add an urban backpack, your favorite pair of converse, wear some accessories and voila — your daily look is ready.

Add a Cozy Hoodie and Sneakers

Another simple way to transform your yoga clothes into street clothes is to wear a hoodie on top of your yoga top, keep your yoga pants on, and add a pair of sneakers. To make your look less sporty, bring a shopper bag instead of a gym bag or backpack. This simple trick will help you look a little more casual and street-ready. If you think that your yoga pants will be not dry and fresh enough after a workout, switch to natural textures and this won’t be a problem.

Combine Your Yoga Pants with a Tunic

If you’re looking for a more girly look, wearing a tunic or a top on top of your yoga pants might be a good choice for you. Choose a lighter textile to make your look more airy and fresh. Add a pair of ballet slippers and a cross-body bag and you are all set!

It obviously takes some effort to make regular yoga practice a part of your daily routine. Especially, if you’re living a busy life most of us live these days. However, a modern pace of life should never keep you from staying active. Even 15 minutes of yoga can make the world of difference to your physical and mental health, so make sure to allocate some time in your daily calendar for this important ritual. Now you know how to save time and space on transforming your yoga clothes into street clothes. Hopefully, this knowledge will make it even easier for you to stay consistent and practice yoga every day. Don’t miss a chance to become the best version of yourself. It might take some time and effort, but it is so worth it.

    This is a description of my wardrobe! “Keep your yoga pants on” is my motto. And it has nothing to do with the exercise and everything to do with comfort! Thank you for this 🙂
