As someone who left the corporate world to work in the yoga field, one of the most noticeable perks of my new job has been the work attire, or rather lack thereof. Trading in blouses, slacks, and briefcases for tank tops, stretchy pants, and yoga mats has been liberating in every sense. And while I’ve never felt more comfortable, I’ll admit, there are days when style has completely been tossed out the window, and when walking around in spandex probably looks as effortless as it actually is. So I’m left wondering, can comfort and chic co-exist in one outfit?
Let’s face it, as women we want it all – ease, performance, and style. I went about the research, aka online shopping, and came across a pair of pants that offered the full package: the ‘Do Everything Cuffed Pant’ by Lucy Activewear. They looked promising - effortless style and fashionable comfort - the perfect pair of pants to wear both in the yoga studio and then out to brunch. When the pants arrived I put them to the test. I paired them with a cropped tank, and took them out for the afternoon. They were stretchy enough for any yoga pose, but still cute enough to wear while walking around Brooklyn without looking like I just stepped out of the gym. Mission accomplished. I’m left with hope and joy; fashion and fitness have finally found common ground.
