Dream scenario: You get to wear yoga pants all weekend-long.

What if we told you all it takes to manifest your yoga-pants dreams is a few key styling tips? Sure, the outfit you wear to stay in all day and order takeout will differ from the one you wear to brunch with your BFFs. But the one thing those outfits have in common? You guessed it: basic black yoga pants. 

We're not telling you to go so far as to take your spandex out on the town to go clubbing in. But we will say: For virtually every other low-key weekend scenario, your go-to yoga pants are totally appropriate.


To state the obvious: You're going to want to slip into your leggings for an actual yoga class. But just because you're dressing practically doesn't mean you have to throw your sense of style out the window. A unique lace-up sports bra paired with a statement yoga mat says you take your practice seriously, but not too seriously.

Out of all the occasions on this list, this is by far the most formal. But let's assume it's a casual brunch with your best girlfriends. In that case, feel free to wear yoga pants. Give it a legit outfit vibe by throwing on an oversized denim jacket, trendy slip-on sneakers and a rad side bag.

Errand Running

Let's say you have a laundry list of to-dos (who doesn't). With all that moving around and running to and from, leggings are the perfect companion. Keep your look relaxed but pulled together with a pair of chic frames, a loose fitting tee and strappy slides.
