The forecast has predicted what can be perfectly described as sweatpants weather. The worse the weather gets, the more often I substitute yoga pants and slippers for my typical outfit of jeans and boots. (What can I say: As much as I love fashion, I also love comfort.)
It has been awhile since yoga pants were thought of as apparel specifically for yoga. Over time, yoga wear has become less associated with the exercise and more related to comfortable wardrobe staples for women. I'll be honest: I have three pairs of yoga pants that I wear regularly, yet my yoga mat has been collecting dust in my closet for years. For those who love to snuggle up in sweats but find them too bulky to wear outside, yoga pants provide a fitted alternative. Their versatility can take women from the couch to the supermarket, and straight to the gym without requiring an outfit change.
