There's that saying, "What goes around comes around." And that other saying, "Everything that's old is new again." And that definitely applies to fashion and beauty trends. I mean, right now we're seeing a resurgence of 2000s fashion trends making a comeback—low-rise pants, bucket hats, baby tanks, and tees, etc.

And it's even translating into the activewear space, too. You know those wide-leg pants or yoga flared leggings that were all the rage back then? Well, they're back—and some of them are updated for the 2020s.

Now, if you're side-eyeing this trend—don't write it off just yet. These type of pants can be so comfortable, both in class and outside of class. Need more convincing? Take a look at these best wide-leg yoga pants below.

These are made with Lululemon's buttery-soft Nulu fabric that's stretchy, weightless, and breathable.

You don't have to worry about having to keep pulling these up during class—they feature a high waist.

The sporty stripe on these leggings gives them a retro vibe.

Beyond Yoga's flared leggings feature handy pockets at the hip.

You'll be able to flow easily in these soft and stretchy leggings. They're made with a moisture-wicking fabric that stays dry during your workout.

These leggings have a three-layer waistband that will provide support and won't dig into your waist.

If you're worried flared leggings are just going to drag on the floor and cause a distraction, you can try these that are 7/8 length. The front slit also gives you a little bit more room to move and breathe.

You're really going to stand out in these chic colorblock leggings. They have strong compression and support so you can even wear these on a run.

These are super formfitting and feature a sleek and seamless design. The extra-high waistband will also stay in place.

The crossover waistband on these leggings provide extra comfort (and looks super flattering).

The fabric on these is a soft jersey fabric that's also moisture-wicking. There's a hidden pocket in the back for your keys or cards.

Outdoor Voices' leggings are made with the brand's SuperForm Rib performance fabric which is soft yet extra supportive.

These have a slim fit through the legs until you get to the dramatic flare at the bottom.

If you like the flared look but prefer a cropped fit, try these. They have a slit-back hem for better mobility.

Talk about two 2000s trends in one—these leggings are low-rise and feature a flared hem.

These front-slit leggings are made with a buttery-soft performance fabric.

FP Movement took its popular Good Karma leggings and gave them a flared look. The pair features a high waistband, four-way stretch, and UPF protection.

The ruching at the waist is a unique and flattering detail here. The legging itself provides light support, so it's great for yoga and barre classes.

Athleta's flared leggings are sweat-wicking, quick-drying, and breathable. They also feature two pockets to hold your essentials so you can travel to class hands-free.

These have a cool and innovative feature—if they're too long for you, you can just measure and cut them easily to hem.
