Why Yoga Pants Are Kind of Awesome ...

By Lane

While they are not the staple of every wardrobe, you should think about the awesome reasons to wear yoga pants. With these options, it's less likely that you will be subjected to public scrutiny or become the subject of dinner party gossip. With the right selections, you can turn an oh my, moment into wow girl, you've got it going on. Let's learn the awesome reasons to wear yoga pants.

1 Comfort

Comfort is the first among the many reasons to wear yoga pants. Although stylists like Stacy London, who I love by the way, will chastise you for wanting to wear unacceptable clothing in social settings due to comfort—wear them anyway. They are comfortable, don't ride up and you can accomplish just about anything in them. With a variety of colors, you can match them with literally anything including those rainbow bright socks you've been holding onto for the right moment.

2 Fabulous Hinny!

Have you looked at your rear in yoga pants? It's awesome! They lift at just the right angles and display your derrière as the impressive thing that it really is. Just make sure when you choose your yoga pants that you understand that the cropped version will make you look disproportionate. I tried those once, I looked like a Oompa-Loompa.

3 You're Not the People of Wal-Mart

Unlike pajama pants, you won't end up on the People of Wal-mart website by wearing yoga pants. They are completely socially acceptable and for all anyone else knows, you just finished a workout. If you feel the inquisitorial stare of anyone in a store or a restaurant, you should just start fanning yourself and say, “Pilates was insane!”

4 Exercise—Obviously!

Yoga pants are comfortable to wear when you are working out. You don't have to do yoga. You could go for a walk, jog, or wall climbing in them. The possibilities are endless. They are lightweight and are usually made of some form of spandex blend. So, you won't have to worry about them ripping at the wrong moment.

5 Elastic Waist

Stretchy waist bands are amazing! If you eat a big lunch, you don't have to worry about undoing that top button to find comfort. These pants stretch to fit you and your food baby! So, if feel free to venture into that all-you-can-eat buffet or order up Pizza Hut's Wednesday wings special. You deserve it, girl!

6 Multiple Colors

Coordinate your wardrobe to fit in multiple colors of yoga pants. No, those “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” pants are not for children only. You can wear them, too! And, yes they do match that Frosty the Snowman sweat shirt perfectly. Don't forget to wear the matching beanie for the full effect!

7 You Can Dance

As you know, I love to dance—in my living room. You should wear yoga pants for this purpose. It is a lot of fun. And if you are short like I am and have hardwood flooring, you can use the excess of the pant legs to help you glide around your chosen area with ease. You can call it multitasking as you are sure to collect hidden dirt with the cuff of your pants.

Yoga pants are more fun and comfortable than any other pants except pajamas. And since they are socially acceptable, you can wear them literally anywhere without too much scrutiny. What articles of clothing do you like to wear often that are not considered the norm?
