Sometimes we simply need to get away from it all and take some time for ourselves. Retreats and spas are great ways to unwind and practice mindfulness.
Are you heading out to a retreat? Will this be your first retreat? A retreat can be anything from a weekend getaway at a luxury spa to a week-long silent meditation in a remote forest.
Although you’re not going to a fashion show and don’t need to dress to the nines, you still need to wear appropriate clothing while you are there.
Our top 3 picks for retreat outfits:
Here are a few outfit ideas that are appropriate for retreats and that may inspire you. The items shown are listed below the outfit but look in your closet to see if you have anything similar that you can use to put your own outfits together.
First of all, let’s remember that the main thing to consider when putting together your clothing for a retreat is comfort. Depending on what type of retreat you are going to you may be doing some yoga or other type of exercise and you may be doing some meditation that is typically done sitting on the ground or on a small cushion. This requires clothes that have stretch and don’t dig into your skin.
Bring clothing and essentials depending on the climate of the location of your retreat.
Make sure you ask the retreat if they provide things like towels or other accessories needed for your stay.
These fun tie-dye cropped leggings from Lululemon look great with a white t-shirt and navy accessories. Remember to purchase your leggings in the proper size, even size up if necessary. Nothing is more uncomfortable than leggings that are too small.
Matching your top and bottom creates a softer look and may make you look taller. Moss green is a relaxing and soothing color and is great for retreats or yoga practices. Here the top is heathered and the bottom is solid, creating a textured look.
You can never go wrong with a black & gray outfit. Heather gray is synonymous with relaxed and casual. Ruanas (or open-front ponchos) look great, are super easy to wear, and are an excellent choice for a retreat.
