About 4 months ago, I complimented my coworker about how amazing a pair of pants looked on her. She told me it was a pair of Betabrand Yoga Pants.
Yoga pants?” I asked, certain she might have misspoken.
“Yes, yoga pants.”, She responded. “I have three pairs of Betabrand yoga pants. They are super comfortable. I wore them all the time while I was pregnant.
Yoga pants and dress pants are two different things, I thought. These must be different. She allowed me to feel the fabric and showed me how stretchy it was.
She piqued my interest. Over the course of two weeks, I researched on Betabrand yoga pants. I would always ask her if she had on a pair of Betabrand pants.
Later that week (or so), she told me that there was a sale going on. But there was one problem. I could not figure out what size (regular, petite, tall) or cut (bootcut, straight leg…) to buy.
Betabrand Yoga Pants Review
Since I am slightly taller than her and the fit guide recommended sizing up for those in-between sizes, I ordered a size small Regular. I bought the classic Black Dress Pant Yoga Pants in Straight-Leg.
For reference, I am roughly 5″5 and ~135 lbs. I typically wear a size 4 (XS or S depending on the brand).
Within a few days, my Betabrand yoga pants was at my door. With excitement, I ripped open the package to try on the pants. To my surprise, the pant was too big.
The waist of the pant had three inches of extra fabric, and the hem was slightly long but not in an unflattering way. And the material felt terrific on my skin. It had the perfect amount of stretch to it.
I was determined to make it work. But hemming the pants, as many people suggested, was not an option for me.
So I called Betabrand customer service. Fami, the representative, suggested that I do a return for store credit if I wanted an exchange. Since Betabrand offers a 110% store credit (or 100% to your original form of payment), I chose the store credit option.
Since I bought the Betabrand yoga pants during a sitewide sale, I was going to lose out on that discount. I told the representative about this, and he sent me an email with a unique discount code to apply on my next order.
Return shipping was free from Alaska, which is a rarity. As soon as my return was confirmed, I placed a new order.
This time, I bought two items. I ordered the same Black Dress Pant Yoga Pants in Straight-Leg but in extra small. And the Straight-Leg Tuxedo Dress Pant Yoga Pants (pictured below) also in extra small.
These pants are super comfortable. I’ve since had them on repeat mixed in with my Zella Live in Leggings. These Betabrand yoga pants are perfect for both casual and dressier workplace settings. I never feel like I have to adjust or tug on my waist even after having a meal.
I have not had any rips, tears, saggy knees or loose butt fabric in the pants, which is a problem for many stretchy clothes.
Although I wish both of these Betabrand yoga pants had pockets, the absence of pockets creates a cleaner and more streamlined fit and appearance. Can’t be mad at that!
I workout a few times a week. But, I have not worn these pants to the gym nor do I have any intention to exercise in them. Ah, these pants are too fancy :). I also don’t like to mix my workwear or workout clothes together.
Thinking of getting the Betabrand yoga pants? I say go for it! I recommend sizing down if you’re in-between sizes especially since the fabric is extra stretchy. Betabrand’s inseam measurement is accurate for both pants.
Refer to the inseam chart of the paticular item you’re interested in getting because it is different from product to product. Here is Betabrand’s size chart.
Great product, fantastic customer service! Worth every single penny.
Shifting gears a little to cover the rest of this look.
Work-Appropriate Pink Sweater Outfit
I love pink clothing. It might very well be my favorite color (although I don’t have a favorite). I’ve had friends, colleagues and strangers compliment my looks. Some of them have told me that they have a hard time styling bold colors/print. And have no idea where to start.
This pink sweater outfit is a simple way to wear bright pink as we approach the colder months. The key here to pair the bright pink sweater with a darker shade of bottoms, like black pants.
Ribbing textures of the pullover combined with those dark-toned sleeve buttons are details that make this simple sweater outfit stand out. The contrasting tuxedo-stripe of the ponte pants is a unique feature that adds more flair to this stylish outfit.
Do I have your attention? Good 🙂 Think about your outfits as a section of thirds (1/3): head to waist, waist to knees, and knees to feet.
From head to waist:
To keep the top third of my body from looking too plain jane, I threw on a set of statement jewelry. Amrita Singh jewelry is my go-to affordable brand for quality jewelry pieces that last a long time.
Earrings, scarves, sunglasses, and headpieces (hats, berets, or scarves) are a few items you wear to draw the attention of the eyes to you. Next, we have the waist area.
Waist to knees:
Belts, purses, and bangles three accessories that come to mind. I do not have a lot of action going on in this area, but the eye-catching sleeve buttons of my pink sweater and dome-shaped satchel quickly attract the eyes.
Knees to feet:
We all know that your choice of shoes can make or break an outfit. I could have worn a pair of stilettos, platform wedge, or even sandals. But I opted for a pastel pink flats with matching hardware to my purse and necklace.
For this office appropriate-look, the Kate Spade flats seemed like the most practical shoe to wear. The pastel color of the shoe ties the entire pink sweater outfit together without it being too matchy-matchy.
With all of these pieces together, you would get lots of compliment when you’re spotted rocking your pink sweater outfit.
