Right Yoga Wear

Why Should You Consider Selecting The Right Yoga Wear?

Fashion is everywhere; be it a casual day-out, a professional seminar, or a regular day at the gym. In the world of social media, everyone feels a compulsion to look presentable, no matter where they are. And the yoga sessions are not an exception to that rule. If you don’t wish to get photographed in your pajamas while practicing yoga, you should get something useful as soon as possible. 

However, aesthetics is not the only reason why you should consider investing in the right yoga wear. The following reasons will enlighten you in this regard. 

Comfort is necessary

When you practice yoga, you tend to try difficult poses that involve a lot of stretching, bending, and twisting. If you aren’t comfortable in the clothes that you’re wearing, it’s nearly impossible to do that perfectly, which may lead to severe consequences including injuries. This apart, it’s important to stay focussed while practicing yoga and uncomfortable clothing can lead to distractions. Therefore, it’s best to pick the right set of workout wear that will reduce such issues to a great extent. 

Feel lighter and less suffocated

Synthetic fabrics can lead to suffocation and excessive sweating, which hampers your performance at the yoga sessions. Most yoga wears are composed of breathable fabrics, which help maintain your focus by enhancing comfort and lightness. For example, the yoga leggings or pants are generally composed of cotton blends, spandex, or lycra, which are lightweight fabrics specially designed for working out. Not only they look good but also provide maximum comfort while trying those difficult moves. 

Right clothing boosts confidence

If you’re a newbie in the world of yoga, you need a lot of confidence, to begin with. The right clothing that’s perfectly-fitting looks good and breathable enough will help boost your confidence levels to a good extent. When you feel good, you’ll perform better and may turn out to be a yoga enthusiast in a few weeks. And selfies are the need of the season, right? So, why not look stylish in those photos by donning trendy yoga wear? 

Diverse outfits to choose from

When you go shopping for the right set of yoga clothes, you’ll see that there are so many different varieties out there. The workout wear industry is booming, and you’re spoilt with choices, be it leggings, yoga pants, trousers, shorts, sports bra, and so on. You’ll enjoy the experience of shopping more than anything else. Hence, appeasing the shopaholic inside you is another key reason for buying the right yoga wear. 

How to choose the right yoga wear

  • Know your body shape and understand your specific requirements 
  • Talk to an expert (possibly your yoga instructor) about the type of clothes you need 
  • Choose the right fit for maximum comfort and flexibility
  • Select a matching sports bra and other undergarments
  • Pick a favorite color, print or pattern

Wrapping it up

Buying the right set of yoga wear can go a long way in enhancing your performance and making you look attractive at the same time. While looks do matter, you should invest in properly-fitted clothes for the best effect.

How To Blend Body Language

How To Blend Body Language With Fashion To Ace Any Look

When you dress up in designer wears, trendy outfits, fashionable accessories, and chic shoes, you intend to look upbeat and fashionable. But, it’s not always the things you wear but how you carry yourself is what makes a true fashionista. If you follow the celebrities closely, you’ll notice that they have a peculiar way of walking, turning, moving their hands, and talking that sets them apart. 

Fashion is a blend of clothes and body language

According to bloggers and celebrities, fashion is defined not only by the clothes and accessories you wear but also by your body language, posture, and movement. The way you walk, sit, and use your hands while doing so tells a lot about your personality. Slouchy postures, stiff hands, and improper postures can ruin your entire appearance, no matter what you wear.  

There’s a reason while models and actors undergo body language training before appearing in front of the camera. And then there are different body languages and postures to practice with each kind of outfit. Some can make you look classy and elegant, but some may bring out the funky teenager in you, and some yet may help you look sensuous and bold. Everything depends on the combination of the right set of clothes and the perfect body language. 

Let’s now discuss what role your hands play in complementing your fashion sense. 

Your hands are probably the first thing that people will notice about you, after your face of course. If you have beautiful hands, they will take your personality a notch up. Now, what is meant by ‘beautiful hands’? We’ll tell you:

  • Get your hands manicured – Hit the salon at your convenience and get your hands manicured, nails filed and polished properly to exude an essence of elegance. Pampering yourself once in a while is a treat in itself, so you’ll enjoy the session as much as the results you get. Pick seasonal colors for your nail paint and make sure not to go overboard. 
  • Wear trendy rings – Having rings on your finger makes you look more feminine. And if you wear two or more stylish rings on your manicured fingers, people will notice your hands. You can go for metal varieties, or natural stones, depending on your choice but make sure the rings are noticeable, trendy and unique in themselves. 
  • Moisturize and exfoliate your hands – Only getting a manicure won’t do. You need to constantly moisturize and exfoliate your hands to keep them beautiful. Exfoliate your hands and apply a lotion before going to bed to prevent dry skin issues from taking their beauty away. 
  • Communicate through hand gestures –  Hand gestures, if properly done, can go a long way in sending the right messages. Use a firm handshake to inspire confidence, put your palm over your heart to express emotions, and use your fingers while mentioning certain points in a conversation. 
  • Draw attention to your wrists – Wear a nice bracelet or a designer watch to complement your overall appearance. You can choose your accessories based on the outfit you’re wearing and your preferences, but the idea is to catch eyes with your beautiful wrists.


Now that you know how to make your hands look attractive, let’s turn to your overall body language:

  • Walk properly – If you’re in formals, your movement should exude confidence and authority, while in an A-line date-night gown, you should walk in slow, sensuous strides to attract eyeballs. Casuals, on the other hand, should inspire something in the middle, as a hassle-free, relaxing stride. 
  • Be careful while sitting – Every outfit inspires different forms of sitting postures. For example, if you’re wearing a short skirt, you should sit with your legs crossed to look elegant and poised. While in denim and sneakers, you can sit in any posture that seems comfortable. If you’re wearing a high-slit dress, you should be careful about the amount of skin it reveals while sitting. 
  • Wear the right shoes – Know what type of shoes will complement your outfit the best. While sneakers are best booked for denim and workout wears, you can don knee-high boots with shorts and stylish pumps with your formal clothing. If you’re planning a casual day out at the beach, both sandals and sneakers will do, depending on the outfit you choose to wear. 
  • Keep them shaved – It goes without saying that if you wear shorts, mini-skirts or high-slit gowns, it’s mandatory to keep your legs shaved and clean to prevent drawing the attention of the fashion police. 
  • Moisturize your legs – Just like your face and hands, you should also exfoliate and moisturize your legs if you want to flaunt them with grace. While on the beach, make sure you carry sunscreen to prevent getting a tan. 

Wrapping it up

You should always work on your posture and body language to exude the essence of a true fashionista. With a combination of the right clothes, accessories, proper posture, and a smile on your face, you’ll definitely turn some heads, wherever you go.

Virtual Date Tips

Virtual Date Tips - How To Dress Like A Pro Fashionista

Apart from remote working and video conferencing, there have been noticeable changes in our personal lives too in the last few months. Virtual dating has been on the rise since the outbreak of the pandemic and it’s creating a trend among the millennials right now. With lockdowns imposed throughout the world and social distancing being the new norm, the romantics of this generation are finding love online through advanced mobile apps that support the idea. 

However, one thing that’s bugging these romantic millennials is the idea of dressing up for that perfect virtual date. Should they be wearing casuals and pajamas with messy buns and bear a natural look, or should they be dressed up in their best with their eyes lined and lips smeared in their favorite shades – the lovers seem to be quite confused. 

The following virtual dating fashion tips aim to get rid of all such confusion and make you look your best without losing your integrity. But before you get down to that, you should know why it’s important to dress up for your virtual date, like it’s a real one. 

Why should you dress up for your virtual date?

Amidst all the anxiety around the virus, there’s no doubt that people’s social lives have gone for a toss. You don’t get to visit your nearby shopping center, let alone dress up for an event or a date. As dressing up and looking good play an important role in self-care, the slightest chance to do so should not be ignored at any cost. And virtual dates can give you exactly that. 

If you dress up like a pro-fashionista on your virtual date, you’ll not only feel confident and beautiful but also take your mind away from the stress that we all are in today. You’ll get to enjoy a good evening with your beloved over the phone, be smeared with compliments, and have a new experience to ponder over the weekend. This will certainly give a boost to your self-esteem and help you combat the crisis with greater vigor. 

Now, how to dress up for a special occasion? Let’s give you some ideas. 

Be the Impressor 

A black, sophisticated, A-line slip dress will create an aura of seduction and beauty, which is perfect for a virtual dinner date. Pair it with a pearl necklace and cute, pearl studs, which will give a touch of elegance to your appearance. You can also go all red if you’re sure that you can carry it well and that it will look good on camera. 

Although your shoes aren’t going to be visible if you’re on Facetime or Skype, they will help you complete the look effectively. You can try stilettos or white, platinum pumps with high heels, whichever seems convenient to you. 

Keep it simple

If you and your partner are planning to do some activities online, like watching a movie together or solving puzzles, playing card games, etc, you can keep it simple with a Marvel T and your favorite pair of shorts or denim. Complete the look with a trendy cap to go with the movie that you’re going to watch. 

Ready for a walk

So you’re planning to go for a walk on your virtual date? Put on your favorite pair of leggings and a short, crop top to go with it. You can also don a denim jacket over it to enhance the look. Sneakers are a must and don’t forget your mask, as you’re going to be outside for some time. 

If you wish to look a little stylish and not like a gym-hitter, you can replace the leggings with shorts or denim and a gorgeous pair of black boots to complement them. 

Show some skin

You can be a little bold on your virtual date with some skin show to go with your natural essence. Take out a crop top from your closet and pair it up with low-waist jeans to exude a sensuous charm. You can also don an off-shoulder top with frilled, transparent sleeves to maintain a cute, girly look without losing your seductive essence. 

Floral tops are the best wears for virtual daytime dates, while silk and satin should be booked for the evening ones. In jewelry, you can try large, feather earrings to go with the floral prints and metal ones for the sophisticated evening dress. 

The retro romantic

Are you and your partner in for classical music and dance nights? Well, you can don a ruched-sleeve dress with a pair of statement earrings and tie your hair in a bun to turn your beloved’s head. Although you can’t be together in the real sense, your get-up will surely make him think about you for the upcoming date until your next virtual date. 

The idea to dress well for your virtual date is all about uplifting your spirits and taking all gloom away. So, which one are you going to try first? Let us know in the comments below.
