I am loving velvet this season. Not sure if it is the major influence of the 90s or the holiday feel, but I love everything and anything velvet — especially when it is unexpected. So when I found velvet workout pants, I knew that I needed them. And not just normal velvet but CRINKLED PINK velvet workout pants.
Beyond Yoga made these velvet high waisted midi leggings. The fit is also perfection — high waisted and snug. I only wear high waisted workout pants, so it was a relief to find that not only the fabric was what I wanted, but the fit, too.
I love them because they are not naturally what you think of workout gear. Although they are intended for low impact wear, I found that running in them was fine. That said, I think they are best for yoga, pilates, and not spinning or high impact cardio. Regardless, I can’t wait to wear them for my workouts and now I am obsessed with finding crushed velvet leggings for everyday wear.
I loved them so much that I just bought these ones, too. They bring JOY in to my life. Truly. Get a pair, and you, too, will smile when you run. Happy weekend!
