So should you wear yoga pants to work? It depends; do you work at a yoga studio? Then that’s ok. Or are you a busy mom who sacrifices dignity for comfort? That is not ok.
Elastic may well be a feminist issue; the problem, said Stacy London, a host of “What Not to Wear” on TLC and a style correspondent for the “Today Show” on NBC, is that women, especially busy mothers, are sacrificing dignity for comfort. “A pair of jeans with a zipper and a button takes a nanosecond longer, and it says, ‘Hey. I’m important, too. It’s not just about my kids,’ ” Ms. London said. “You’re telling your kids you matter, and you’re setting yourself up as a role mode for them — that you always need to have a certain amount of self-respect and put a certain amount of care into your appearance.”
I do not wear yoga pants to work. This is because I am a role model for the children I do not have, and something something self-respect girlpower mompower.
Also since when are jeans appropriate for more formal (or business-casual) workplaces? Is “it’s ok if it has a zipper and a button” the new rule for office attire?
Thanks for the link-bait, Neil.
