Truth is, you're a total poser.

Downward-facing dog. Plank position. The warrior.

So it's only natural that you'd want your clothes to be as flexible as you are.

Take a deep breath and focus on Lily Lotus' new spring collection - an assortment of slim-fitting separates in soft pinks, lavenders and blues, snuggable shawls and cardigans, and, for the first time ever, uber-comfy dresses in classic, flowing cuts.

Two styles make their debut here: a Racerback Maxi and versatile tea-length Twist Dress. Both come in the collection's vibrant tie-dyed Spiral Wash patterns or solid black or pink with floral henna-inspired mendhi print.

Owner Momi Chee paid great attention to fit and function, choosing to perfect basic cuts that flatter and drape beautifully in buttery-soft bamboo rayon spandex. "The prints and colors may be liberal and funky, but the styles themselves are very classic," Chee says. "I want to design everyday glamour that is wearable, has longevity and quality value."

The result is a fresh, new wardrobe staple for any woman on the go.

Yogi or not, you'll want to take the lunge.

$82-$88, available at Lily Lotus Boutique, 609 Kailua Rd. #102, and coming soon to LilyLotus.com.
