11 Reasons Why Pants Are Way Better Than Skirts

There's no denying it: pants are just easier to deal with. There are no sudden winds to worry about, no difficulty crossing your legs and you're certainly more agile in a good pair of pants than in a flowing skirt. So after declaring last week that flats are better than heels, we're making it official—pants are better than skirts. Don't believe us? Let us tell you why.

"Hold up—pants are most certainly NOT better than skirts. Not if your body type skews more toward the hourglassy, small-of-waist and not-so-small-of-hip dimensions that mine does. It's virtually impossible for me to find jeans that fit both in the waist and the hip regions, particularly pairs that aren't super-stretchy. I own one pair of jeans—ONE—that I bust out for very special occasions. The rest of the time, you'll find me in full, A-line skirts and dresses—a silhouette that, at least for me, is far more figure-flattering." - Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor
