These Pants Are the Foundation for Your New Weekend Wardrobe

Counterintuitive though it may seem, there are plenty of outdoor activities that are even more appealing when the weather cools off a bit and the stifling humidity disappears. In its place, we get cool temperatures and the kind of crisp fresh air that makes you want to take a nice deep breath when you walk outside.

That crisp weather also means you get to pack up all the shorts you’ve been wearing for the past four months and make your triumphant return to wearing actual, honest-to-goodness pants.

The On the Move collection by lululemon features a number of options that are perfectly suited to the kind of scenarios you’re likely to find yourself in over the next few months, whether you’re running out to grab coffee or meeting a friend for some outdoor drinks. As we’ve come to expect from the brand, these smart, nicely tailored pieces look great and pack technology that helps them perform even better.

To Meet a Friend for Coffee

So you’re finally meeting a friend for a (socially distanced) coffee. Who knows how many months it’s been since you’ve seen them (in person, at least), so you’ll want to make a good impression and show them that you haven’t completely let yourself go. But it’s understandable if you’re not quite ready to slip into a pair of jeans or chinos just yet. That’s where the Bowline Pants come in. Featuring a drawstring waist and roomy pockets, the pants can easily be dressed up or down depending on what the occasion requires.

Pair with: At Ease Hoodie ($148)

For Running Your Morning Errands

What once may have seemed like a chore, errands now serve as a great excuse to get dressed and get out of the house. While running to the grocery or stopping by the post office may have taken on new significance in our lives, comfort is still key when completing these tasks. Instead of throwing on whatever sweats you’ve been lounging in, opt for an upgrade with the At Ease Jogger. Made from breathable fabric, the joggers will feel just as soft and cozy as your most worn-in pair of sweats, while the streamlined silhouette will lend your look a more put-together air.

Pair with: 5 Year Basic Tee ($48 – $58)

For Exploring a New Town on Foot

For your sake, we hope you’ll be able to plan a weekend getaway this fall. And also for your sake, we hope that it’s to a super quaint small town you want to spend entire afternoons wandering around, stopping at the occasional bakery, bookstore or bar. Maybe you’ll have a pumpkin beer, just ’cause it feels like the right move given the circumstances. Or maybe you won’t, ’cause they’re kinda gross. Regardless, if you are wearing the Classic ABC Pant in lululemon’s ultra-breathable, wrinkle-resistant Warpstreem fabric, you will look stylish enough that no one will know how comfortable you are.

For Outdoor Drinks and Dinner

Maybe you’ve been working from home for six months, and the very thought of having to make yourself presentable enough for dinner with a friend or two is enough to send you into a downward spiral of despair. But there is no need to worry, and there’s definitely no need to pull out your stiffest pair of selvedge denim — not when you could instead reach for the Commission Pantcut here into a slim silhouette that’s more than acceptable for dinner at your outdoor spot of choice and also way more comfortable than it has any business being. 

Pair with: City Excursion Jacket ($148)
