Yoga Dress Pants Blend Workout Wear and Office Attire

Because barely trying is the new black, a new line of wear-to-work workout pants is heading to digital retail shelves.

Soon, hardworking ladies everywhere will be able to breathe a little vinyasa into their vocation, regardless of whether that job happens to be with a once well-respected corporation, law firm, or medical practice.

In the same vein of her earlier product, Dress Sweat Pants for Men, Think Tank director Sarah James has profited off the fact that a growing number of women refuse to wear actual pants.

"Based on the insane popularity of yoga pants, I wanted to create a pair of pants that would work for power yogis and PowerPoint professionals," says James' Dress Pants Yoga Pants page on Betabrand, an online clothing site that lets users co-design and crowd-fund new products.

Combining the stretchy performance fabric of yoga pants with the belt loops, faux pockets, and straight cut of slacks, James has created a hybrid form of office wear "that could easily be worn for a light lunchtime workout and look just as appropriate back at the office." You know, assuming no one notices post-workout smell or the dark gray stains of ass sweat.

The pants, which are the site's most successfully funded product to date, currently run at $79.20 a pair. They will be available to ship in late February.
