I’ve noticed that my clothing shopping habits have me now asking the question, “Is this comfortable?” I’m not sure when it happened, perhaps when I became pregnant with my first child but I no longer sacrifice comfort for style. Because of that, I’m always thrilled when I discover a new way to get both without having to compromise! i am Beyond is a perfect example of offering clothing that makes us feel and look good.
I am BEYOND is a luxury lifestyle brand founded by Jodi Guber. I am BEYOND operates at the function of fashion and functionality, combining the best elements of active wear and style to form a collection that is chic, flattering and above all, accessible. When you feel comfortable where you are (and with what you’re wearing) you feel strong and beautiful.
i am BEYOND may have a strong focus on yoga but it is much more than that. It is a lifestyle brand. And with many mix and match pieces including leggings, camis, tanks, dresses and more you can go from working out to running errands to dinner, all with i am BEYOND.
Two of my very favorite pieces from the collection include the Supima Modal Kimino Dress (left) and the French Terry Cowl Neck Top (right). I fell in love with the style and knowing that they are made for comfort. I had the opportunity to try out the dress myself and seriously can’t get over the oh so very soft material. I wore it out to a nice dinner while in Chicago and honestly felt like I was wearing my pajamas rather than a dress.
I paired it with a scarf (because I’m obsessed with them), black leggings and tall black boots because at the beginning of April it is still a bit chilly in Chicago. While the leggings would be optional, the dress would would be a bit short for my tastes. When the warmer weather arrives I’ll pair this with a pair of capri leggings and sandals! Keep in mind the style of the dress allows for more wiggle room so I would suggest if you are struggling to decide between two sizes, order a size down.
While the pieces in the i am BEYOND collection are at a premium price, this is certainly a case where you get what you pay for. The quality, style and comfort are worth it to have a few key pieces in your wardrobe. They are certain to become your favorites and I’m not the only one who would say so. Just check out their long list of celebrity endorsements and see what I mean!
