It’s a new season, and we don’t know about y’all, but we have been seriously craving some time on the mat.
Whether it’s in the studio or just at home — stretching, reaching and taking up space just feels, well, rather lovely.
And the new KiraGrace Houndstooth Collection has us all like 😍😍😍. (So much so that we’re an affiliate!)
The collection came out a few days ago, and we were psyched to be a part of its launch. See our IG post here, and then read on for more of what we thought about each piece.
Side Ruched Yoga Top in Black: You know when you get a top that’s just the right mix of form-fitting and loose so that you can move and flow and still feel comfortable and yet covered? This top is that. It’s soft, stretchy, forgiving and it moves beautifully with you as you go from pose to pose (or, school drop off to coffee). It breathes well and makes for a great top layer as you warm up, cool down or go about your fall day. (Oh, and it also comes in blue!)
Grace High Waist Yoga Tight in Houndstooth: I’ve had a love affair with houndstooth print for years now, so to have it on a pair of high-performance yoga pants? Well, WINNING. And these really do feel so, so great on. They’re got the quality and features you expect from a KiraGrace yoga tight — with a cool leg-lengthening ombre houndstooth print on them and a high waist. They’re perfect — neutral enough that you can wear them with pretty much any top, but more exciting than your basic black pair.
Grace Yoga Halter in Blue Abyss: Go ahead and order me one of these in black, too, because I am in love with this yoga halter. And, apparently, I’m not alone in that sentiment because Kristen owns one, too, and it’s KiraGrace’s best-selling yoga top — which says something! The materials is soft and comfy, yet has a nice structure to it that feels really elegant on. And don’t get me started about the cut. Okay, get me started about the cut. Because it’s perfection. The halter neck keeps your chest covered no matter what pose you’re in (hello, inversions), while the shoulders and back are open and free. It’s simply wonderful to wear.
Grace High Waist Yoga Tight in Herringbone: Not a huge fan of houndstooth print like me? How about herringbone? These have the same fit and feel as the pair above, but are in a super fun (but not overly loud) print that’s sleek and on trend for fall. You can’t tell it from the photo above, but these also have a bit of the ombre effect — the high waist is black and fades into the herringbone print down the leg. Again, really comfy and long enough to go over that heel if you want it to.
Sevari Tank in Black: I’m of the opinion that you can’t have too many variations of a nice black tank, and, as far as I’m concerned, this is a perfect addition to any yoga (or athleisure!) wardrobe. It fits loose without being overly billowy, the fabric is lightweight and soft, and, check this open back. It is perfection — just add your own cute sports bra like I did (or pick up one of theirs).
Grace High Waist Yoga Tight in Herringbone: As Jenn said, these herringbone tights are comfy and adorable. And, I’d go so far as to say they’re fairly versatile — you could easily wear these with a tunic and boots as street clothes (totally true for the next pair I’m sharing, too), then stroll straight into your yoga class in them without missing a beat. The ombre effect is quite a stand out, too, so if you’re one to rock leggings and a sports bra, this is definitely a style to consider.
Glamour Goddess Luxe Halter in Blue Abyss: For those who love a built-in bra and dig a stylish, unusual neckline, the Glamour Goddess Luxe Halter is a true gem — and the fabric is seriously just so soft, plus that color … it doesn’t show as much in the picture, but trust me, it’s gorgeous. Is this style maybe a smidge sexy? Heck yeah, and that makes it a perfect top to grab when you’re really feeling yourself. (And I hope that means you’ll be grabbing it a lot!) That said, while it holds everything in place and stays put on my perfectly well for a regular flow, it’s not as supportive in the bust as, say, the Grace Yoga Halter, so it’s not the shirt I pick for classes where I anticipate jumping around.
Glen Plaid Grace High Waist Tight: I’ve always been drawn to a preppy aesthetic, so autumn has long been a time to bust out everything plaid — and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the opportunity to do that at yoga now. It’s worth noting that this pattern — as is the case with all the other patterned leggings from KiraGrace — looks the same whether it’s fitting a little loosely around my ankles or … you know, not loosely at all around my glutes.
