Fashion trends come and go, but the best ones make us feel nostalgic. Case in point: Gen Z is obsessed with flared leggings. But what TikTokers don’t realize is that flared leggings are actually one of the most era-defining fashion trends of the early 2000s.
The difference? Millennials called them yoga pants.
With brand like Hard Tail and So Low among the most iconic during the trend’s peak, modern athleisure brands have since reimagined the boot leg, body-hugging yoga pant and made it cool again. For example, Lululemon took it’s cult-classic Groove pants and relaunched it with new sweat-wicking and lightweight fabric, along with a super-high rise waistband.
Emma Chamberlain, one of Gen-Z’s pioneering influencers, is partially responsible for the revival. After she posted a series of Instagram Stories wearing the pants, it seems like the rest of her generation followed suit.
Suddenly, “flared leggings” became the new it-style.
