Out From Under: Yoga Essentials Under $100

Header collage copy v3 yoga

fEven if you’re one of the rare few who doesn’t do yoga on the weekends, you probably dress like someone who does. With the advent (and near dominance) of athleisure culture, acquiring the right leggings (perhaps you know them as “yoga pants”) has become just as important as owning that perfect pair of on trend, slimming jeans. Whether you’re errand-running, actually doing yoga, or any combination of weekend activities, “that yoga look” is the appropriate, even applauded, dress code for more off-duty occasions than ever before. So, with that in mind, we’ve rounded up the best items for under $100 to take you from Downward-Facing Dog to your favorite downtown destination in flattering, functional style. -AZ
