Do I have To Wear Spandex?
I am a huge advocate for recycled fashion, specifically vintage and consignment. I love the find of a great piece and the story that comes with it. I don't want to project any kind of negativity around the yoga-wear industry, but I have had a hard time connecting with the silhouettes and materials that are often found within yoga apparel. This got me thinking, what can we wear to yoga and in our spiritual practices that maybe feels a little more unique or individualistic? Once you think about it, there are endless possibilities. I am now on a journey to search for garments that I feel great wearing, can do yoga in, and are sustainable, fair-trade, organic or recycled.
When I found these vintage linen culottes from a local flea market, I was so excited because I knew I would not only be able to wear them to yoga, but also dress them up for other life activities!
The top is also linen and a piece from Reformation. Reformation is one of the amazing clothing companies that is leading the way in the fair-trade clothing movement. This way of shopping has created a more minimalistic and conscious way of looking at the clothes I wear and has expanded my creativity.
As I experiment with my wardrobe and begin to expand this practice with others, I look forward to what the future holds!
