Gaiam’s Petal Tunic: Outdoor gear item for July 4

Women’s yoga tunic

TH E SITUATION: Tired of wearing the same boring shirt to your yoga practice?

AN ANSWER: You can add a little style and form-flattering fit with Gaiam’s Petal Tunic, which offers a unique look with its tunic length and feminine detailing.

THE DETAILS: The extended length provides coverage that many yoga shirts don’t, with ruched sides that allow the wearer to customize where the waistband sits, from mid-thigh to hip. The wide waistband also helps keep the shirt in place through all poses (even upside-down ones) and provides a slimming effect without constricting any body parts.

Cap sleeves and a pleated back panel make it easy to transition from the studio to running errands. It’s not skintight either, so you won’t feel exposed wherever you go.

Made from a polyester/rayon blend, the tunic is soft and machine-washable.

It is available in pink, light blue and medium blue, in sizes extra small to extra large.

PRICE: $38.
