Yoga & Barre Clothes & Accessories
Arrive in style for barre or yoga workouts with the best yoga clothes for men and women from Nordstrom.
What clothing should you wear to yoga class?
If you've never done a Downward Dog, you might not know what yoga clothes you need for your first class. We recommend workout gear that's comfortable, cool, and non-restrictive, but also stays put when you're on the move. For women, high-waisted yoga pants or looser pants and a technical tee or tank are essential for keeping yourself covered and comfortable as you bend and stretch. Men's yoga clothes are often athletic pants or shorts made from wicking, breathable fabrics paired with a lightweight, breathable t-shirt. Learn more about what to wear to yoga in this helpful guide.
- Barre & Yoga Pants – Whether you're just starting a yoga practice or you've been zenning out for years, you'll want to invest in a few pairs of yoga leggings in various cuts and styles. Base your yoga pant fit on your comfort and style. Some women's favorite yoga clothes are looser, flare-fit pants for easy movement. Others feel more supported and comfortable in compressive, high-waisted full-length, 7/8 legging styles and capri-length breathable leggings. If you're ditching your purse and carrying everything to the yoga studio, opt for yoga pants with pockets to stash your cards and keys. Men who practice yoga or take barre classes often opt for performance joggers or sweat wicking shorts. Yoga shorts with built-in liners may be preferred thanks to the extra coverage they provide.
- Barre & Yoga tops – You could rock a cotton t-shirt in yoga, but you'll be more comfortable in something sweat-wicking, lightweight, and breathable. Yoga top cuts range from crops to tees to tanks, but you may want to stick to something more fitted for coverage during inverted poses. And while you can generally wear whatever you want to a yoga class, note many barre studios have dress codes that require barre workout clothes to cover midriffs and legs. Some great barre top options are racerback tank tops and sleeveless top styles. Men's barre tops and yoga t-shirts are typically anything built of wicking technical fabrics. Some men prefer muscle tanks in lightweight fabrics for yoga classes. From Zella and Girlfriend Collective to Vuori and Nike, Nordstrom carries all the best yoga clothing brands for men and women.
- Barre & Yoga shorts – If you prefer shorts for yoga or barre classes, choose a lightweight, wicking pair. You may even like longer or fitted bike shorts over looser running shorts for comfort and coverage as you bend and stretch. Due to barre studio dress codes, the best barre clothing for women is often a pair of capri tights, full-length leggings, or joggers. Men may prefer yoga shorts with a built-in liner or technical joggers for both barre and yoga class. If you're a hot yoga or Bikram practitioner, you may like wearing shorts, but many hot yoga students also wear full-coverage leggings in heated classrooms.
- Sports Bras for Barre & Yoga - When buying a sports bra for yoga, consider your cup size and how much support you'll need for your practice. An energizing Vinyasa practice may require a more supportive bra than a calming restorative yoga class. For power yoga classes, consider a bra with compression features, underwire cups, and sturdy straps that increase support. Restorative classes are more stretch- and relaxation-focused, so a lightweight, pull-on sports bra might be all you need. As far as style is concerned, sports bras have long been hidden under clothing, but today they take center stage as yoga tops too. If you're looking to stay on-trend, the best yoga clothes for women are monochromatic combos that pair high-waisted yoga pants with a crop-length sports bra.
