Everyone in my area (men & women) wear jeans / Dress pants with thermals when its freaky cold.

Yoga pants are thin and flimsy (at least for guys). How do they stand up against frostbites when you are walking for a long time. How much time do you spend out in the cold. I walk 1.2 miles from parking lot to workplace and back through the woods. I thank my Jeans + thermals for saving my legs from a frostbite.
Dude, you can wear thermals under yoga pants. Even multiple pairs of thermals. You can also wear them under leggings, tights, dress pants -- anything.

Wool does not do well in snow. Its meant for dry cold. Snowy weather requires water repellent material. Wool gets damaged by too much moisture.

BTW, I live in Jersey. We usually never wear thermals under pants because winters are mild and wet (around 32 F) with occasional snow. This year is exceptionally cold with sub zero lows and lots of snow.

The older women I see wearing them, older as in over 35. It's not uncommon to see sweat from their crotch area. it's gross. I don't see it on younger women, but my friends and I do see it on the middle age crowd. Are you totally unaware? if you deny you have this issue, you most likely do but but oblivious to it, hence that why we see it so often.

Yes, and I like our costume a whole lot better than some of the others I've seen. Muffin top and visible bra straps anyone?

You can actually by insulated yoga-type pants for winter.

Anyone who is working out can wear them. I just dont classify them as casual wear. I wear track pants while running in spring/summer/fall. Otherwise, I usually wear jeans or below the knee khaki shorts with a belt.
what she is saying is that you need to have a nice figure to afford to wear yoga pants or leggings outside the house.

there are women I see in the street that wear them and they do not have a fit body. It doesn't work in their favor, let me tell you this.

Yoga pants belong in the yoga studio.

And speaking of this, I have a wish as well: ladies, the sneakers do NOT look well with business attire. I was SHOCKED 20 years ago, when I came to America to see this monstrosity in the street. In Europe you will never, ever see such thing and European women walk more that Americans ones. Sneakers and business suits is a faux pas.

I don't wear yoga pants anyhoo, but it's like 70 degrees here. I had some for when I went to yoga (and I look just fine in them, thanks, I find it odd someone thinks that only THEY look good in them, when they are talking to an ONLINE forum, where they have no clue what others look like. NICE try though, LMAO) Although someone at my work who is very slender, wore a pair to work. But the fit was not flattering, nor was her shirt. The yoga pants were too low, shirt riding up too high, totally creating a muffin top effect. Point being, you can be slim, but if the fits aren't appropriate, you can look clothing make for an unflattering look.

Sooo is this a topic about 2014 fashion, or another post whining about yoga pants? I was interested in fashion for 2014, but I'll skip the umpteenth yoga-pants-whining thread. What else does everyone like for 2014?
I do agree - sneakers with business attire? That is um... weird? Who does that? LOL!

I'm wondering if the people who you're seeing in sneakers with business attire are mainly women and if they are walking on their way to or from their office building. I used to work in downtown Chicago and many women, including myself, would take the train into the city from the burbs. If the walk to the office was a long one, they'd carry their heels in a bag and wear their sneakers until they got into the office. It's a common occurance actually.
