Yoga pants fad-will it ever go away?

I see countless women wearing them outside of the gym and yoga class because apparently it's the new fad to be lazy and put on these pants instead of a pair of flattering jeans or skirt/dress. I don't like the fad however...I'm wondering if you think this fad will ever disappear. Many women claim they do it because it's more comfortable, when like I said, I believe it's just out of laziness. Do you ever see this fad going away?

  • I hate when girls wear yoga pants outside of the gym. It's not attractive, it looks cheap and it's only acceptable for a time and place.

  • I love my yoga pants. Yes, because they are comfortable, but not because I am lazy. Because I'll get all dressed up and make those yoga pants look gooooooood. Atleast in my eyes I do have a point, some people do do it because they are too lazy to put on nice pants, but when you have a pair of name brand yoga pants you paid $50 for, you want to wear them. They are fashionable to a point. And my boyfriend thinks I look great in them, so yeah, I wear them for comfort and to look good.

    Have you seen girls' butts in those things? I mean come on! I'm 100% straight, but they can make ANY butt look good!

    • Noone said you had to buy them

    • Umm...did you hear me complaining?

      Don't ask questions if you don't want to hear people disagree with you.

      Because it looks like you're going after everyone that disagrees with you.

      This site is to get opinions, not diss on everyone who doesn't agree with you.

    • I stated my opinion. That's what the site is USED for

  • 1st of all, McDonalds? Please. I feel no need to put anything special on McDonalds. It's about as low as it's humanly possible to get on the 'I feel the need to look nice for this place' scale.

    2nd- Yes they are comfortable! Oh my god they are comfortable!

    3rd- What is wrong with it? A lot of times I'll finish a workout then immediately go to the store or someplace. When I'm out and about I don't have to look nice if I don't want to.

    4-Why are you of the opinion that if a woman doesn't take the time to primp for your viewing pleasure that she's lazy? Very few pairs of jeans look nice. Most of them are shapeless crap. There ARE good brands/cuts, but the vast majority of them are mommy jeans.

    5- How do they not look good? I think that many women pull them off and look sporty.


    What happens when the alarm clock rings, you hit snooze, and the next time it rings you have 10 min to jump out of bed and get to class? You go in your PJs. Mine happen to include yoga pants. I have gone to class MANY times in yoga pants. No complaints from anyone.


  • It is actually comfortable and yeah I can see it possibly being out of style because alotta trends fade eventually.

  • They actually are quite comfortable although no I'm not one of those women who wear yoga pants in public - I don't think I've even worn sweatpants in public in my whole 28 years of life.

    Anyway, to answer your question I doubt yoga pants will ever completely go away as long as yoga exists, pilates exist, they are comfortable to wear and people still take airplanes because I seem to see most yoga pants when I'm on a plane.

  • Hm, I don't personally wear them... but other than being comfy, I know quite a few girls who wear them because they've heard that guys realllly like them on a girl. That's about it, I suppose. I like jeans the best :3 haha

    • I thought girls dressed for girls LOL

  • Yes, it is a fad, and yes, it will go away. Both men's and women's fashion fluctuate in terms of formality, and often they are not really in synch. Right now it seems that women's fashions are on the heavily informal side, while men's fashion is actually moving in the more formal direction. You can't really say this is right or wrong. It is just one aspect of social changes.

    I'm no expert, but I think that women these days are trying to express their feminity. In the 80's women's fashion was based heavily on immitating men's fashion, shoulder pads and muted colors were in. Then in the 90's I think it was more about individualism and rebellion for both men and women, with the grunge image being popular, but flannel shirts are not very feminine either.

    The past decade or so I think women have been getting more comfortable with showing feminity and curves. Maybe they are trying to reclaim that feminine appeal that has been slowly decreasing in women's fashion for many years. That, combined with a rejection of societal norms regarding modesty has resulted in many women, typically younger women, wearing clothing that not long ago would have been considered inappropriate in most social settings.

    Of course that's all just a guess, I'm not an expert by any means.

  • Women can wear anything they want. I think it's perfectly acceptable for women to wear yoga pants outside of the gym and I have no concept of how that can be considered lazy. It can be very casual, but what's wrong with that sometimes. I take it you don't think women should wear large sweater or track pants either. I happen to think that yoga pants look awesome and have seen many women look classy and stylish with them on. Please women do not listen to this guy keep wearing yoga pants.

  • Yoga pants beat sweats. I hate it when girls wear sweats.

    • Yeah, I totally agree with that however...Im just saying, there's a time and a place for each

    • aww, I'm so sorry? psssht

    • Wear sweats out in public or period? I wore sweats to school one day, because I woke up late and wasn't feeling good and thought I didn't care how I looked. I got to school, was comfortable as hell, but self conscious all day. Next day felt the same exact way, and dressed up anyway. haha

  • Yoga pants don't flatter the figure? You don't like seeing tight clothes on girls? What's wrong with you, man? Just some questions to answer up there...







    ^Those girls are totally gross :S

    • I need to change my pants now thanks!

    • Show All
    • nice pics, lmao. Made me smile today, thanks. :)

    • You like girls too? :)

  • it's pants... who cares what people wear. you go ahead and stick to materialistic bullsh*t just to appease others. I'll be comfortable in my tank and jeans while you look like a dofus with all that name brand sh*t you wear just because it's "classy" or "flattering".
