Sportsister selects: Yoga cover ups
A session of yoga or pilates may go some way to relieving the day-to-day stresses and strains that life throws at us. To make the most of this escape here is a selection of yoga clothing to wear before, during and after the class.
Asquith Wrap Cardigan
Colours: Charcoal (shown), Black, White, Cerise
More info: asquithlondon.com
Alice Asquith re-launched her designer yoga/lifestyle clothing label in February 2009. This exquisite wraparound top is a comfortable fit and great for layering. The bell shaped sleeves and fabric tie allow for a loose fit when needed and is really flattering.
The entire yoga range is organically sourced and so it not only feels good against the skin but will make you feel even better knowing that you’re doing your bit for the environment.
Sweaty Betty Yoga Layer Top
Colours: Black, Mint
More info: www.sweatybetty.com
This cropped piece comes from Sweaty Betty’s yoga pro collection. The seamless style and bamboo material means it is super comfortable wear and allows a versatile fit. We like this pretty pale mint colour, but is also available in classic black.
Whether you’re a beginner or an expert in yoga/pilates, this top stays put through every pose and stretch. It is perfect for layering up and its hook and eye detail at the front means the top isn’t too bulky so can be worn during the class, as well as adding a little fashion detail.
adidas Clima Gym Tracktop
Colours: Pure Steel/Pink Metallic (shown), Art Green/White, Black/White
More info: www.adidas.com/uk
This jacket is perfect for those who like to work up a bit of a sweat during their yoga session. The breathable CLIMACOOL® design manages heat and perspiration through ventilation. The full zipped design with side and chest pockets as well as thumb loops is extremely practical as well as comfortable.
Cassall French Terry Jacket
Colours: Black, Bright Rose, Grey Melange
More info: www.sportswoman.co.uk
This Cassall jacket is perfect for inside and outside the gym. It features soft cotton french terry fabric for comfort and ribbed texture inside the hood, at the bottom hem and along the sleeves for added durability. This neat style is secured with metal press buttons at the front which also gives a slimming effect. A nice added feature is the fabric treatment that will help minimise pilling and snagging on the fabric, keeping it looking better for longer.
Wellicious Terry Jacket
Colours: Gym Grey, Moonlight Blue
More info: www.wellicious.com
This Terry jacket is from the latest Wellicious organic collection. The soft, luxurious organic cotton ensures comfort and quality isn’t sacrificed. And the cute pocket with gathering detail and the lowered neckline add a soft feminine character to a classic item.
If you are new to the Wellicious brand then it’s worth having a look around the website which features some fun aspects such as the sizing – rather than labelling each garment with the traditional XS, S, M, L, Wellicious use refers to extra sweet, Sweet, Marvellous and Luxurious. It’s just one of many unique points to this high-end website.
Gossypium Kimono Hoody
Colours: Deep Red, Indigo
More info: www.gossypium.co.uk
This hoody from Gossypium’s latest range features pretty seam detailing inspired by a Japanese kimono. Details include an asymetric hood opening, contoured silhouette and handy thumb-hole cuffs. Add in fairtrade Cotton and a great price and you have a perfectly formed yoga hoody.
