Welcome to the first of our four part blog series from our founder, Alice Asquith showing you how to style Asquith eco-friendly yoga clothing off the mat. This season Alice has introduced new styles, updated old favourites and designed clothes in a flattering colour palette and with a print to suit all skin tones, body types and all wardrobes. In her first blog Alice shares her favourite ways to wear our bamboo yoga clothing everyday, paired down on the weekend or at home.
Over to Alice…
”When I launched Asquith 16 years ago I launched it as an Activewear brand with all natural fabrics – designed for yoga, Pilates but also for living in. Back then, this was quite unusual. It was synthetic sportswear and fashion and they didn’t mix! But I wanted wearers to always be comfortable whatever they did and designed Asquith to enhance their daily experiences, be it in a studio, a gym, travelling, on holiday, on the school run, on a beach or out at night, or simply for relaxing at home. That hasn’t changed. I wanted to show you how I wear Asquith yoga clothing everyday as part of my daily wardrobe.”
On The Weekend
Whether you are travelling to see friends, visiting a museum or simply relaxing at home, our clothes are designed to be flattering, elegant and keep you comfortable all day long.
Black Long Sleeve Tee and Khaki Divine Pants
”I prefer our Flow With It Leggings for my yoga or Pilates practice, so I wear the bamboo Divine yoga Pants more at the weekend whether I am at home or out and about. They’re great for brunch on the weekend, or a visit to a gallery, as they’re so comfy but still quite smart and look great with my favourite leather jacket. ”
Navy Long Sleeve Tee and Claret Drawstring Pants
”The Long Sleeve Tee is the perfect layering piece. You can wear it for a class (if you’re in a chilly studio or village hall!) or, as I do here, under this gorgeous YSL jacket. Our new Drawstring bamboo yoga Pants have a lovely soft drapey feel, they’re lighter weight than the Divine Pants and feel uber soft against your skin – you actually forget you’re wearing trousers they’re so comfy!”
Our collections are as comfortable on the mat as they are lounging on the sofa at home. Here Alice’s shares how she wears her favourite pieces when relaxing at home.
Navy Long Sleeve Smooth You Tee and Jeans
”I adore a long sleeve Tee. I design many for Asquith because I believe it’s a softer and more flattering colour than black and Our Long Sleeve Smooth You Tee is such an easy to wear, everyday style. Throw on a scarf and a great pair of jeans and you feel relaxed, comfy but still look elegant enough to have friends round.”
Claret Freedom Tee and Navy Divine Pants
”When I first launched Asquith I designed it as an all natural yoga and loungewear brand. This focus on multi functionality hasn’t changed. It’s become more relevant as we live in a culture where clothes are so often disposable. Asquith is designed to last, be multifunctional so you can confidently wear yoga clothing everyday. When I come home the first thing I always do when I walk through the door is put on our clothes, because it’s comfortable but still looks elegant. I always wanted the collections to enhance the wearer’s experience, and this includes in your downtime.”
