Grab of the Week: yoga jeans that aren’t just jeggings

Hanging around non fitness-related environments in yoga wear is a definite fashion faux pas. We have nothing against comfort, yoga or fitness, and we realize that it’s hard to juggle outfit changes into a busy schedule. So we present to you: yoga jeans.

Don’t be alarmed: these aren’t jeggings. We can assure you that these are proper five-pocket jeans, made from high-quality denim right here in Canada. The product of Montreal-based denim line, Second Denim Co., yoga jeans contain brushed cotton and elastane combined with a specialized waistband, allowing you to bend, twist and downward dog with ease.

Most importantly, the jeans look and feel great. Whether you’re a yogi or not, you will rejoice in their softness, comfort and fit. Our fashion senses tell us that we will be living in these over the winter. They’re the denim answer to a thick legging. They’re also our new favourite jeans.
