I mean, I’m wearing leggings at the office right now and so are the two girls next to me. I even think my male boss is rocking a pair today. Just kidding, but the way these pants are taking over, I wouldn’t be surprised if he soon gave them a go.
Whether you call them leggings or yoga pants, one thing remains constant: They are the go-to pants choice for women everywhere. Don’t even try to argue, as this is an indisputable fact.
It’s like a push-up bra for our butts. Some people may claim that leggings don’t qualify as pants, but I am here to tell you they most certainly do!
I mean, how else can you justify dropping $88 at Lululemon for an item you couldn’t even consider outerwear? Why do so many girls love yoga pants? Well, allow me to enlighten you:
- They make you feel skinny or comfortable when you feel fat
What other clothing item can make you feel skinny and better about yourself when you’re having a fat day? Yoga pants are a damn miracle and should be embraced at each and every opportunity.
- Even people with the flattest of asses can look like they have some junk in the trunk
It doesn’t matter if this is real or an illusion! If it looks like she got a butt, well then, today my friend, she has got a butt! White girls everywhere, rejoice.
- You can wear them out on the town
Any outfit paired with heels is sufficient for a night out right? Why not be as comfortable as you possibly can while partying with your friends? Leggings > Jeans, always.
- They are the perfect travel outfit
Leggings are great and especially efficient for the female traveler. Pair them with sneakers and you’ve got the perfect, most comfortable travel outfit. You can bend your legs any which way you please, unlike when wearing jeans or a skirt.
- You can wear them to the gym and then straight out to happy hour
All you have to do is change your footwear, put on a sweater and you are good to go!
- They were made to wear to brunch
Bring on the bloody marys, mimosas and french toast! You can eat and drink as much as you please! What better outfit is there to wear to a boozy brunch?
- They don’t take up space in your closet
Which just makes room for more sh*t you don’t need, like another pair of over-the-knee black leather boots. I mean, what else are you going to pair with your leggings and sweater dress?
- Generally, they’re inexpensive
You can find leggings for cheap, unless you prefer the more expensive brands. Don’t worry; you can also rationalize spending a fortune on one pair because you can wear them every day if you want to! See 11.
