Make Your Work Day A Little More Comfy With Dress Yoga Pants
No, for real, why in the world are dress yoga pants a thing now? I get that people really like to be comfortable, and that we spend the majority of our waking hours at work, but this is taking things just a little too far.
Now, I'm not the most fashionable person in the world, but I do know one thing - dress yoga pants ("fancier" yoga pants, basically) should not be a thing.
These abominations of fashion are available via a fashion crowdfunding site called Betabrand. Site like Betabrand are basically used to gauge interest in new products and allow their creators to make refinements on design based on the feedback they receive. The Dress Pant Yoga Pants (that's their actual name) at this point are 768% above the fundraising goal, which, I suppose, shows that the product is something a lot of people want. What does that mean? I guess it means that I'm the only person on Earth that thinks that they're a bad idea.
According to the listing on Betabrand, these terrible pants (if we can really call them pants) came about because of a high demand for a women's version of Dress Pant Sweatpants (which, for the record, were also a terrible idea).
In case you were wondering, these jeggings-wannabes are made of stretchy yoga-pants-esque material (basically rayon, nylon and Spandex) and have faux front and rear pockets, a fake zipper fly, a nonfunctional button closure, and belt loops to make them look more appropriate for the office. And, don't you worry, they also have an elastic waistband. Currently, they're only available in gray and in a straight-leg fit, but their creator, Sarah James, is collecting votes for the next color and fit.
Of course, these are manufactured by the same company that makes Disco Pants ("At Last, Light Dispersing Pants!"), Cordarounds ("Finally! Horizontal Corduroy! Aerodynamic! Swish Free!"), and Japants ("Tokyo Style, American Fit!").
And hey! They'll only cost you $79.20.
