How To Nail The Studio To Street Look With 5 Key Cover-ups


Whether I like to admit it or not, there are days when I end up in my yoga pants all day. And while I’m never head to toe in spandex — It’s usually a pretty tight outfit that feels inappropriate once I roll up my mat.

Studio to street style has been a thing for sometime now –with brands like Athleta and Prana creating full product lines to meet the demand for those who want more than the expected cascading cardigan to cover up their workwout wear.

The key to elevating your yoga look from studio to street is to choose items that are effortless and up to date –meaning they’re no fuss, and can hold their own on the city streets.

Here are 5 pieces I’m on the brink of buying to wear when I end up in my yoga outfit all day.

Why stick to a cardigan when there are sweater options like this?

It doesn’t get much easier than a simple slip-on. Simply slip-on, then go.

Sweatshirts are having a moment right now, so it’s easy to catch cool variations. If the one you find feels too short, go up a size.

    Awesome choices Elysha…I had a poncho made of sweatshirt fabric which has been ‘lost’ along the way, but it was my go-to for years!

  2. Helen, anything made with a sweatshirt fabric is automatically awesome in my eyes. I bet your poncho was fab! xoxo
