Ever since the pandemic, one item of clothing has slowly become much more abundant within our closets: sweatpants. While the wardrobe essential certainly isn’t new to mainstream fashion, it’s become more prominent over the last few years with the rise of remote work and our general obsession with all things comfy. There’s something that’s just so easy and wonderful about slipping into a cozy pair of sweatpants, and the style has even been reimagined in recent seasons to be much more versatile — there are sweatpants for lounging, athletic sweatpants that you can wear while working out, and even cute sweatpants that can be dressed up for more formal occasions.
If you’re looking to invest in something a bit more low-key than your favorite worn-in jeans — but still a bit more put together than a baggy pair of PJs — we’ve got the perfect fashion solution for you. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best sweatpants for women to stock up on this season, with styles that are perfect for all types of activities, budgets, and even body types.
The season’s most comfortable sweatpants are available to shop at a range of retailers like Nordstrom, Outdoor Voices, Amazon, Quince, and more. Plus, just for the athletes, we’ve even shopped out the best sweatpants that you can wear from the gym to your couch and everywhere in between. Keep reading to browse our picks.
