Yoga pants have moved out from the back of the closet, becoming a fast-moving and ever-evolving fashion trend. Remember when yoga pants began as part of your ‘gym wear’ wardrobe and comprised of loose-fitting garments in neutral tones. Yoga wear was the clothing that you wore to yoga, the gym or lounging around the house, not anything suited to be seen in public. A demand arose for a new style of yoga pant that was comfortable, offered better performance, and that was flattering for every body type.
In the 1990’s, body-conscious styles began to emerge and activewear became more form-fitting and tailored. New stretchy and breathable materials were introduced as well as temperature-regulating materials for lighter and easier movement. Along with these new materials, the exploration into color, graphics and wearable art began.
Designers were able to use the yoga pant as a canvas for a new aesthetic that defined what yoga was and would be: a lifestyle. The modern yoga pant suits the demand for a modern lifestyle, a lifestyle with a passion for fitness, positivity and healthy living. To wear your fashionable yoga pants out and about tells a story about you and the life you lead.
Along with this was the extension of work hours, which shortens the yoga-to-work time, a garment that could be worn from yoga to the office would be even more convenient. Not only would this garment need to be suited to movement and flexibility but stylish enough that you could feel fashionable out and about. What could be better than looking trendy and fashionable while being comfortable during work and play!
Today, high performance technology and textiles have made comfort and fashion that much better. As these styles become more innovative, they move past conventional clothing ideas, taking the yoga pant into a fast moving fashion trend: ‘chic fitness’.
As eco-friendly products have become more important in today’s world, maintaining sustainable living, clothing has moved towards creative new materials to match this lifestyle. Yoga pants have became environmentally friendlier; new technology has allowed the creation of materials which even include recycled bottles and other recycled materials that still allow for a high-performance practice.
Here are some brands and styles currently on trend:
