What to Wear Instead of Yoga Pants

It’s so easy to get stuck always wearing the same clothes day in and day out. For me, I got stuck wearing my yoga clothes. They were great when I had my kids and was a busy mom—easy to wear, easy to wash and easy to move around in. Today, even though I still go to yoga class, I’m an empty nester and staying in my yoga outfit all day, day after day, just isn’t an option anymore. Why wear the same thing when clothes can be so fun? There are so many styles that are comfortable that you don’t have to compromise comfort for style.

You might not have any idea what else to wear if you’ve worn yoga clothes year in and year out. Maybe it’s been so long since you’ve really shopped for something different that you have no idea what looks stylish, especially if you’re an older woman. I can totally relate to this.

Fear not, my friends, it’s a new world these days and the clothing options are plentiful. You won’t have to rely on only yourself anymore when it comes to what to wear. If you’re totally stumped, here are some options I found for you.

To get your started on your way, you might consider updating your wardrobe with some help from Nordstrom. Nordstrom’s business plan is all about superior personal service. They work really hard to give customers more than they ask for. In my experience, I have always been pleased, and I’ve been shopping there for decades.

When I was doing research for this article, I found out that Nordstrom offers many more ways to help us ladies with our wardrobes than I ever knew! Either you tell them what you’re looking for, or they suggest what they think you will need. They just want to do whatever works best for you.

If you want to get out of your yoga pants but have no idea what else to put on, take a look at these suggestions.
