I cannot take these leggings off at the moment, they truly are the most versatile pants I own.

Why I love them

You know when you find that one thing that goes with everything? Well that’s how I feel about the Padmasana Leggings. In a geometric print inspired by the beachside tiles of Brazil, these colourful printed leggings contain so many different shades that I can wear them with nearly every top I own. Plus, the deep side panels and carefully placed seams were designed to flatter the figure so make me feel really confident. 

Being reversible they can be worn two ways, essentially doubling the opportunity to wear them from the studio and beyond. I often go straight from a workout to a meeting, so need my clothes to be multi-functional. As the weather gets warmer I don’t always want to wear a full length pant so these super soft capris make a great alternative.
How I wear them

This past weekend we have had a heatwave in England, so my family and I spent most of the time on the beach in West Wittering. I like to start the day with a run along the beach with my dog Ennis and this Sunday I wore the Padmasanas with the Lateral Run Tunic and Infinity Workout Bra, which was comfortable and sweat-wicking in the heat.

Being completely opaque they also work really well for yoga, meaning I can transition through poses with confidence. On the mat I’ll wear them with the Utthita Yoga Cami, as the blue in the print really brings out the colour of the top. Post-class I’ll then throw on the Wander Retreat Sweat and a pair of white trainers for easy transitional style.
