Practicing yoga during the summer has its own set of advantages and challenges. You can move your practice outside, which always makes for a refreshing change of pace, and there’s no need to pack on multiple layers of clothing to get comfortably to and from the studio. But the heat of summer also means sweat.
Getting good and sweaty is wonderful for your body – sweat is detoxifying and liberating – but sweat can also be hard on your clothes. Whether your current yoga wardrobe is plagued by sweat stains, the wear-and-tear of too many washes, or overall discomfort, here are some sustainable yoga clothes to revamp your summer practice.
The bright and beautiful color blocks on these sustainable yoga pants will invigorate your style, and the three-quarter length will help keep you cool. These pants are made of 87% organic cotton and the breathe; being outside is a great time to wear breathable clothing because you can really feel the air around you.
These beloved shorts cover all of the bases – they have some breathing room but also have side ties at the leg openings so you can maintain your modesty in wide leg poses. They also have a comfortable waistband that stays in place, and they’re perfect for all-day wear. Put them over a bathing suit and head to the beach, or wear them to the park to chase your little ones around in style and comfort.
This tank pops with beautiful color blocks and flattering criss-cross straps. The long waistline will keep you comfy and confident throughout your practice, and the built-in bra means you can reduce your number of layers, staying extra cool. Also, no matter how sweaty you get during your summer practice sessions, you can be assured that this tank’s organic cotton will hold up well, even after multiple washes.
If you like to stay a little more covered up, even in the heat of summer, the Larkspur top is a wonderful light-weight layer that will move with you, allow for airflow, and look stylish all at once. This classic top looks just as beautiful paired with a pencil skirt as it does with a pair of yoga leggings. It’s also a great choice for getting warmed up at the beginning of your practice or for covering up before heading out the studio door.
Whatever you choose to wear this summer, remember to look for sustainable yoga wear. That means clothing that is made from sustainable fabrics using sustainable practices. At Hyde, our clothes are always made with organic materials and produced right here in the USA.
