If you're looking for some inspiration for what to wear while focusing on perfecting your posing, you've come to the right place. Our guide to the best yoga clothes will not only keep you comfy and cool, but will also add some style to your workout wardrobe.

Whether you're a complete beginner or a self-confessed yogi, everyone knows that wearing the right clothing when practising yoga is key to unlocking your inner warrior. Thebest yoga pants and tops will ensure that your movement isn't restricted so you can move from position to position with ease.

How to choose the best clothes for yoga

Your personal preference on what type of clothing you feel most at ease in will certainly play a part in what you choose to wear while practising yoga. However, certain types of clothing and fabrics are more preferably to others. The three main things to keep in mind when picking out your yoga wardrobe are comfort, breathability and flexibility.


There's nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable in your clothes, especially when you're exercising. The best clothes for yoga are ones that are lightweight and soft. Opt for clothes that are loose-fitting with comfortable waistbands and fabrics that don't feel harsh against your skin.


We all know that yoga can be sweaty business, so your clothes will need to be moisture wicking to help you stay as comfortable as possible. For this reason, most yoga clothes are made using blends of cotton and nylon. These fabrics will keep you feeling cool as you practise your Child's Pose.


As you'll be doing a lot of stretching, you'll want to choose clothes that will allow you to have maximum flexibility. You won't want your clothing getting in the way and stopping you from performing your best Warrior Pose or Downward Facing Dog. Look for items made using elastane or other similar stretchy synthetic materials. These fabrics are known for their stretching ability and will allow you to move in the way you want before getting back to their original shape when you're done.
