If you keep an eye on celebrity fashion trends, you will almost have definitely have noticed the latest craze. That’s right, the yoga pant trend has been popular among celebrities and it’s one that we hope lasts forever. But where did this look originate from?
Well, in 1997, a retail entrepreneur called Chip Wilson was having back problems. Looking to relieve the pain, he went to a yoga class in British Columbia, where he was living. However, what Wilson noticed most in his first session was the pants. His yoga instructor was wearing some sort of slim dance attire and Wilson was intrigued. The next year, he started a yoga design and fashion business called Lululemon and opened his first store in Vancouver.
In the past two decades since that first store opened, Lululemon has sparked a global fashion revolution, often referred to as “athleisure” or “activewear”. It has helped to blur the lines between typical workout attire and normal clothes worn every day.
Nowadays, you don’t have to be on the way to the gym for this look – proven by the vast number of celebs wearing this attire each and every day. It’s much more flattering than your normal work out wear and much comfier than jeans and other common items of clothing. Trending is the high waisted yoga pant and crop top or, if you’re feeling super confident, a sports bra. Personally, I have made this combo my every night and weekend wear. The high waist is extremely flattering and covers those not so six pack abs! Literally obsessed.
