Not only do boot cut yoga pants tend to make petite people look like they're swimming in Spandex--and make it harder for your teacher to see your alignment--they also make already-short legs look even shorter. Add to this the extra hassle of taking a new pair of pants to get it hemmed and it's almost enough make me a total leggings convert.
Hemming isn't necessary for leggings--even if they're way too long! Here are three adorable ways I've found to make leggings even more flattering (and more versatile) on a petite frame-and they utilize the most current yoga fashion trends!
