7 black yoga pants to buy if you’re ready to go back to basics

Attention all yogis and people who just really like the pants — we have exciting news. September is National Yoga Month, which means that it’s the perfect time to stock up on the ultimate athleisure staple: black yoga pants. Everyone knows that “yoga pants” is really just a fancy term for “super comfy leggings,” and it is in everyone’s best interest to invest in a pair, because they’re just so versatile.

First, they look good on everyone, because no woman is “too big to wear leggings” (despite what some bullies may say). Second, Kim Kardashian recently proved that — paired with only a bra — yoga pants make for great going-out attire. As if we didn’t already know that!

Regardless of whether or not yoga pants are considered “flattering” or “inappropriate clothing to wear outside of a yoga studio,” women want to be comfy — and nobody can tell us nuthin’ about our yoga pants.

Here are a few pairs of back-to-basics black yoga pants to pick up in celebration of National Yoga Month.

While expanding your chest and noticing your breath, of course.
