I’m really not sure why but this one has me a little bit angry: TikTok has recently revealed yoga pants as a fun new discovery. Worse yet, some are referring to them as “vintage.” You know, the ones from the 2010s with the printed waistbands?
Not only are yoga pants a new discovery for some — which admittedly makes me feel a little old — but the fact that yoga pants are potentially coming back is kind of worrisome for me. I was really hoping they’d stay in the past where they belong.
This new phenomenon was brought to my attention by this tweet:
can’t believe the tik tok teens have just discovered yoga pants and they’re calling them flared leggings I hate it here

I acknowledge that I probably sound like a bit of a boomer here, but I’m just a bit shocked that these are coming back to haunt us. They’re totally comfy, I get it, but I just don’t know how to feel about seeing those flashy waistbands come back. I’m even more horrified because if they get trendy enough, I’ll probably buy a pair. This is no good, but at least the ultra low rise jeans of the early 2000s aren’t back yet.
