For the past couple of years, activewear pants have been all about the skinny-leg fit. There are pros and cons to this, of course. The pros? Because of the tighter, compressed fit, you're feeling more supported and no extra fabric gets in the way of whatever workout you're doing. The cons? They're tight! Have you ever tried to peel off your leggings after an especially sweaty workout?

While we still love our compressed leggings, we've been noticing a familiar style come up while browsing the activewear selections at some of our favorite retailers: flared yoga pants. Remember those? Heck, maybe you still wear them, and if so, good for you. But let's go back in time to the early aughts when these were just about everywhere. I had a couple of pairs, and I didn't even do yoga back then. People wore them to the studio, but they also wore them for lounging and running errands. They're so comfortable!

If you're reading this and thinking, "Wow, I miss those pants," then you're in luck because we rounded up some of the best pairs you can buy on Amazon (who can say no to Prime shipping?). Take a look below.
