Christmas is coming, stress levels are rising and now, more than ever, is the time to go and get your om on by keeping calm with some yoga. Now you know Kicks and Kit always keeps it stylish and current when it comes to your fitness closet. These yoga brands I have chosen will ensure you look in hot in the studio, stylish on the street and ever so cool lounging around after dinner on Christmas day.
Onzie is an American brand created by a 20-year bikram yogi. It blends the best of traditional yoga wear with modern innovation. It’s funky, creative, and in my opinion, definitely for the young-at-heart. Its pieces are multi-purpose and can be worn for bikram, pilates, swimming, surfing and running. I am a fan of adding a good hoodie to any workout wardrobe (including your yoga one) and this one from Onzie ticks all the boxes – long sleeves, draped relaxed feel, thumb holes and fitness fashionista ready make it a must-have for all hipster yoga bunnies.

Wellicious is one of my fave British- born ethical labels which have consistently delivered timeless, comfortable, stylish pieces every season. Their Work It Tank in flamingo and grapevine is stylish and very practical too. It comes with a built in bra inside the tank that can easily be mixed and matched with other pieces from the collection. I love the sexy, shoulder strap details which will show off your back in a flattering way. The tank can be worn on its own or under a cover -up or off- the -shoulder sweater. Made from 62% Lyocell, which is the most eco-friendly of all the natural regeneration fibres, its light and gives the freedom to move easily during you class. The grapevine and flamingo colour way will give your work out look a great pop of colour. Actress Naomi Watts is a big fan of this brand and has been seen out and about in New York wearing Wellicious.

Carrot Banana Peach
Carrot Banana Peach is a bit under the radar when it comes to yoga brands and it shouldn’t be because they have some fab pieces in the collection and use some really innovative fabrics too. The Milk Butterfly Top is similar to a jacket but without all the seams and scratchy bits and will add a touch of elegance to your yoga wardrobe. The top is made from a blend of milk and beech wood pulp, which is kind to the skin and ideal for yoga as it stretches with your body and is designed to support your body through every posture. You can also rock this at the beginning of your class until you are fully warmed up so makes for a great cover-up as well. It’s also ideal for lounging around in post-Christmas dinner, with the twisted design at the front keeping you nice and snug as well having a bit of ‘give’ in the tummy area.
