The Perfect Yoga Gear For YOUR Workout

Betcha didn’t know Refinery29 had its own resident yoga guru, did you, now?Well, we do. Our commerce account manager, Sara Little, has been practicing for eight years and teaching full-time for four years, everywhere from NYC to Italy to Costa Rica — all before we lured her over to R29 HQ, of course. You can just imagine how many of us newbies stop by her desk for a quick down-dog or side-plank tip — that’s office-appropriate, right?

So, when we teamed up with rad yoga and workout-gear brand Solow for an exclusive voucher offer(spend $100, get $200!), we figured, this was our moment to score some one-on-one styling advice, for our next sweat session.

Scroll through to find out what Sara wears for a variety of different workouts, and what you should be looking for, the next time you’re in the market for spanex with an extra shot of style. And hey, you can even join her for a class or two if you’re in the NYC area.


Meet our in-house yoga pro, Sara Little. Looks peaceful, right?


Workout Cami 
“So, I know you’re not supposed to be checking out other yogis’ Downward-Facing Dogs when you’re in class, but who could help it, with the cool cross-back detail on this cami? An important thing to look for on a yoga top, beyond cute details: cuts that are on the longer side, so you can stretch in every direction, without worrying about annoying bunching around the belly.” 

Lululemon Back Burner Tank, $58, available at Lululemon.


A Cozy Pullover
“Your practice doesn’t have to suffer just because it’s winter. I love that this pullover is both functional (thanks, cozy fleece) and chic (hello, faux-leather patches). Put it on to stay warm during the final Oms, then pair with some skinnies and booties and join your classmates for an après yoga kombucha. Namaste.”

Solow Modal Fleece Pullover with Leather Patches, $92, available at SOLOW.

Yoga Legging
“Any yogi worth her salt needs a solid pair of classic, easy, go-to leggings, and these are it.

Beyond Yoga Gold Stripe Long Legging, $77, available at Beyond Yoga.


Criss-Cross Sports Bra 
“Bikram babes, rejoice! This super-functional sports bra will provide you ladies with the full coverage you need when you’re sweating like crazy. Also, this bra is so cute that I’d throw on a sporty, slouchy tank over it for a peekaboo effect. Those cute back stripes deserve the spotlight.”

Eclon Criss Cross Sports Bra, $38, available at Free People.


Sloucy Pants
“I gotta be honest: I’m more likely to curl up to aGame of Thrones marathon than go to a 90-minute Vinyasa sweat fest in these. That said, these harem pants are perfect for the commute between your yoga mat and your couch. Plus, I’ve got two words for you: Baby. Fleece.

Solow Baby Fleece Slouchy Ankle Pant, $81, available at SOLOW.

Terry Shorts 
“I teach yoga retreats in Costa Rica, so I need a versatile (and affordable) little pair of shorts that will take me from a.m. Sun Salutes to afternoon beach bumming without missing a beat. These soft, bright shorts keep me comfy and just make me smile.” 

Adidas by Stella McCartney Tennis Performance Shorts, $40, available at Adidas.
