“Yoga pants” is kind of a misnomer. When I think of “yoga pants,” I think of a pair of bootcut or flared stretchy pants, but you can really wear whatever you want to yoga and you can really wear those types of pants to do things other than yoga. Yoga pants are like leggings’ more relaxed siblings, which makes them ideal for right now. We’ve rounded up some of the best options out there, from classic cotton ones to pants that feel more like leggings.
Spalding Women's Bootleg Yoga Pant
If you’re looking for a classic pair of yoga pants, these are it. Made from a cotton/spandex blend with some slight compression in the thighs, you’ll want to grab these any time you work out.
