Lounge pants are a multi-faceted bitch — they do a ton of shit.
Well, now it does anyway. For years you may have lounged around in an old pair of flannel pajama pants or some basic Fruit of the Loom grey sweats. But now we have joggers with sweat-wicking properties you can run miles or do yoga in, sweats built for traveling with loads of secure pockets and lounge pants so stylish you’d actually want to be seen at the grocery store in.
What hasn’t changed, thankfully, is how soft and comfortable the lounge pant is, by nature. If anything, the comfort factor has only gotten stronger, with softer and more sustainable fabrics often being utilized. And as the weather gets colder and we settle into our new WFH lives, we know that a relaxing, cozy pair of pants is of the utmost importance.
So below we rounded up 15 of the best lounge pants. From classic bulky sweats to more refined pairs to technical joggers and more, everything you’re looking for in a comfy trouser is here.
