The 10 WFH Pants You Need Right Now

So, you’re working from home. Under normal circumstances it might be cause for celebration (you get to work from the comfort of your bed! hooray!) but the conditions currently relegating us to our abodes aren’t exactly worth celebrating. To put it bluntly, this sucks.

But if there’s one small, tiny (we’re talking minuscule) silver lining to all of this, it’s the chance we’ve been given to fully commit to athleisure. The movement has persisted for some years now, and it continues to lend people the opportunity to wear workout-type clothing in their day-to-day lives, without scrutiny or judgement. Don’t feel like wearing real pants? Just throw on a pair of joggers and call it athleisure!

And if you’re going to delve into athleisure during your indefinite WFH period, we recommend starting with pants. You’re finally free from the burden of jeans and chinos. Rejoice.

Below you’ll find 10 pants suitable for both working from the couch or making a quick dash to the grocery if need be.

Patagonia Terrebone Joggers

According to my editor, he has worn these pants exclusively since Friday, so I assume they’re comfortable. Let’s just hope he’s washed them. [Ed. note: Uh, yes. He has washed them. Every day.]

Fourlaps Relay Track Pant

You really can’t go wrong with a pair of simple black track pants.

Outdoor Voices Sunday Sweatpants

Okay, yes, these are sweatpants, but they’re not like your everyday variety sweatpants. The slimmer leg makes them look less pajama-like, meaning you can easily wear them outside of the house without looking like a slob.

Public Rec All Day Every Day Jogger

Public Rec pretty much dominates the athleisure game, and for good reason. Their goods are simple, sleek and comfortable, their Every Day joggers included. The tapered leg makes them ideal for pairing with your nicest sneakers.

Nike Sportswear Joggers

You probably already own a pair of Nike joggers or track pants, but you probably don’t own them in this pale blue color, which you should.

adidas Essentials 3-Stripes Tapered Tricot Pants

No list of athleisure pants is complete without the iconic 3-Stripe adidas track pants. We recommend going ahead and purchasing the matching jacket for a full ‘fit. If you’re feeling bold, get the set in red for a Royal Tenebaums inspired look.

The North Face Class V Pant

These pants just look cool. It’s fairly difficult to find athleisure type clothing available in colors other than black and grey, so if you feel like branching out, we suggest this pair.

Saturdays NYC Chad Jogger Pant

Part cargo pant, part jogger pant, these pants from Saturdays NYC will work just as well outdoors as they will in. Plus, just think of all the essentials you can store in those pockets!

Aimé Leon Dore / New Balance Nylon Track Pant

This pair is for the athleisure pro, the one who is capable of pairing track pants with, say, a polo or non-athletic shirts without looking like an idiot. If you think you can handle the challenge, these are the pants for you. They deserve to see the light of day.

Uniqlo Ezy Dry-Ex Jogger Pants

Uniqlo literally makes everything, so naturally they also make jogger pants too. Like much of their other clothing, the Dry-Ex Jogger pants from the brand are simple, clean and neat.
