Today, more people than ever are trading in their skinny jeans for yoga pants, and TBH, we can see why.

They're hella comfortable, extremely versatile and make you look badass.

Over the years, we've proven that leggings can be worn with anything, but what about actual sportswear?

With the help of stylist Lulu Bernard, we set out on a mission to work yoga pants into every type of outfit situation: chilling with friends; downing mimosas at brunch; being a bo$$ at work; or going somewhere fancy.

Chrissy in Nike Legendary Tight Fit Pants: I never wear sweatpants, workout pants or any type of activewear IRL, so the fact that I'm wearing yoga pants here makes me laugh considering I haven't been able to find my yoga mat in, oh, two-ish years.

Outfit details: Forever 21 Hat; Zara Black Choker; Forever 21 Plaid Flannel Shirt Dress; Dr. Martens Jadon Boot in Black Ajax.

Lara in Nike Legendary Twist Pants: OK, I was skeptical because, like, when I wear yoga pants to "chill" it means I wear them on my couch and don't shower all day. But to actually go out and dress it up a little more, I was interested. And it turned out that I LOVED the outfit. I want to be buried with these workout pants.

Outfit details: Forever 21 Woven Top Tank With Hood; Mossimo Silver Platform Sandals.

Sheridan in Nike Legendary Tidal Pants: Anyone who doesn’t have a thigh gap knows dat chafing struggle so I am always very happy to wear yoga pants to run around and do errands. And honestly these workout pants are so fun! They’re colorful so it didn’t feel like I was being lazy with my outfit. It’s very “I just threw this on but I’m still cool AF."

Chrissy in Nike Legendary Tight Fit Pants: Hot tip: If you're gonna wear yoga pants to work, just make sure to pair 'em with a longer top or dress because your vag can become fully, um, defined if you aren't on 24/7 crotch-watch. I know because it happened.

Outfit details: Bar III Utility Vest; Forever 21 Fringed Dress; Aldo Haollan Heels.

Lara in Nike Legendary Tight Fit Pants: I never would have imagined wearing yoga pants with a collared shirt and yet I love it so much. It’s comfortable and classy and I’m on my way to gracing the front pages of Pinterest. I think if I were interviewing for a job with this outfit I would get it because, IDK, everybody likes yoga pants. I think.

Outfit details: Zara Leather Sleeve Jacket; Forever 21 White Woven Shirt; H&M Loafers.

Sheridan in GapFit gFast Pants: I know, I know — yoga pants in an office setting? But the dress and coat really added that ​˜professional˜​ factor. I love how classy I felt but still comfort because ladies, I don’t care how many times you say “pain is beauty,” at the end of the day I want to feel COMFORTABLE.

Outfit details: Torrid Chevron Print Dress; Torrid Drape Front Trench.

Chrissy in Nike Legendary Tight Fit Pants: This look isn't my typical vibe, but I think everyone needs a light pink trench in their wardrobe, like, yesterday. Also, Forever 21 markets this top is a dress, which is hilarious considering my butthole would make direct contact with a chair if I sat down without pants.

Outfit details: Forever 21 Trench Coat; Forever 21 Floral Cami Dress; Forever 21 Faux Suede Espadrille Wedges.

Lara in Nike Legendary Tight Fit Pants: I can now officially wear yoga pants everywhere and no one can say shit to me. I think this outfit looks awesome. Personally, I think yoga pants are a gift from god. Who knew I could pair them with a cute little cami and sweater? Well, NOW I DO.

Outfit details: H&M Oversized Cardigan; American Apparel Chiffon Camisole; Mossimo Platform Sandals.

Sheridan in Torrid Active Pants: Yes. This outfit. Times a million. Brunch is the time for me to eat copious amounts of bacon and down it with all-you-can-drink mimosas not worry about tugging down my dress or walking straight in stilettos. Yoga pants were MADE for brunch.

Outfit details: Torrid Twofer Sweater; Abound Striped Flats.

Chrissy in Nike Zoned Sculpt Pants: Ok, YES, this is much more my steez: sheer black dress, leather jacket, metal choker and, weirdly, yoga pants. The styling totally transformed this beach cover up (yes, for real) into a 🔥🔥🔥 going-out look.

Outfit details: Reformation Cropped Leather Jacket; Torrid Mesh Maxi Cover Up; H&M Sandals.

Lara in Nike Legendary Tight Fit Pants: YOGA PANTS AND A LEATHER JACKET??? Yes. YES. I would wear this out every night if I could. I think it looks and feels freaking awesome. And the best part?? My yoga waist band stretches! Margaritas here I come.

Outfit details: Allsaints Assembly Leather Jacket; American Apparel Sparkle Crop Tank; Steve Madden Ankle Strap Sandals.

Sheridan in GapFit gFast Pants: I’ve been wearing the same pair of faux-leather sweatpants since the womb because they’re comfortable and somewhat fashionable at the same time but now I can safely say yoga pants will be my clothing item of choice in the future. I felt sexy and cute and comfy all at the same time. Just pair them with a little bralette and honey you are doing it for the gods!

Outfit details: Torrid Strappy Bralette; Torrid Zipper Vest.

In the end, Chrissy and Lara like the going out looks best, while Sheridan preferred the chill look.
