We’re officially on the cusp of swim-suit season, which has us headed straight to the studio to tighten up before spring break. Taking an hour out of your day to workout means oftentimes we end up wearing our workout gear for most of the day – which can pose a problem if your wardrobe consists of wind-pants and white Reebok high tops (y’all know what I’m talking about #notjudging). The ladies of Neighborhood Barre are here to keep you comfortable, stylish and bring you styles that are a justifiable studio to street purchase!
If you can’t tell, we love Beyond Yoga at NEIGHBORHOOD barre and for a multitude of reasons – it is stylish, made in the USA and offers the perfect carryover from studio to street. The quality is top-notch, holding true to the ‘you pay for what you get’ saying. One of our main focuses when selecting pieces for the studio is simply how easy the style can transition out of class and into your wardrobe. We have pulled three different outfits that we felt were functional yet fashionable.
The first look we pulled focused on navy, because it truly is a color that is flattering on everyone and easily transitions into spring. We paired this outfit with a lightweight scarf to expose the back detail on the top, but if you desire more coverage a cardigan is an easy swap in lieu of the scarf. The crops really speak for themselves, because not only are they effortlessly cute; they are extremely soft. We also like that these are a low-calf length, which makes them workable from Uggs to flop-flops.

The second outfit we chose borders more on the sporty side, but you can easily swap the sneakers for boots. We love the mesh detailing in this tank because while it looks great in class, we think it could easily pair with white skinny jeans or denim shorts. You can jazz it up with a colored bra that will barely show through the mesh detail, or keep it monochromatic with black on black. Again, we feature the Space Dye Leggings (a studio fave), only in a full-length black and white version. Our favorite street sneak? Nike and New Balance throw back styles (available at jcrew.com).

Our third and final look is a great ‘wear now’ outfit. It pairs perfectly with your favorite Uggs, but can easily be worn with flats or flops later in the season. We love this tunic because again you have the option to mix and match this top with skinny jeans after class. The Beyond Yoga leggings have a great quilted texture that gives you the ability to dress up your outfit and the open X back of the tunic allows to be creative with your top or sports bra. You could also pair the quilted leggings with a chunky sweater and boots for a great cozy day-time look.
