All the best leggings to buy on International Yoga Day, so you can “om” all day or “namaste” in bed all night

Aside from the bliss of a yoga class, is there any greater joy in life than pulling on a pair of yoga pants? Not in my opinion. They’re basically a socially acceptable version of walking around naked, and they make everyone’s butts look fabulous. Plus, no activities are off limits while you’re wearing them: grocery shopping, cartwheels, and, you know, yoga—it’s all fair game.

If you’re on the hunt for some new activewear or workout clothes, today might be the ideal day to shop—June 21st is International Yoga Day, so declared by the United Nations (so you know this one’s legit). Whether you’re headed off to a blissful yin class or sweating out your blowout in hot yoga, consider getting yourself some new yoga pants today (because you probably have a worn-out pair in the back of your dresser that could be repurposed as house-cleaning rags at this point).
