Now that we’ve arrived squarely at the beginning of winter, it’s time to talk loungewear. Once you’ve gotten your hands on a fluffy robe, a snug sweater, and a pair of functional slippers, it’s time to make your at-home ensemble a truly cozy delight with a solid pair of lounge pants. These bad boys finish off any weekend-on-the-couch uniform and should be warm, soft and comfortable without sacrificing style.

If you like the jogger fit, check out these lounge pants from Tommy John. They’re built with a special tri-fabric blend, which makes them gentle and super-soft. They also feature functional side pockets as well as a drawstring, which allows you to adjust the pants to your liking.
Made with a medium-weight French Terry and with a slim and tapered cut to the pant, these loungers from Richer Poorer could look amazing on the streets, but these are definitely best when stuntin’ your perfect style solo at home.
These lightweight joggers from Lululemon are as perfect for hitting the running trails as they are for lounging around the house. Four-way stretch material makes them great for mobility, plus zips at the cuff allow for extra breathability and comfort.
Built with a gentle MicroModal material, this pair of lounge pants from MeUndies is a fantastic option for the guy who wants to relax in style. While you could wear these into the outside world, we suggest pairing them with a crew neck sweater for marathon binge sessions on your favorite lounge chair.

Crafted with a special tri-blend Sherpa fleece, these joggers from Marine Layer are built with relaxation in mind. However, though they’re ideal for wearing around the house, their slim fit and tapered ankle also make them totally appropriate for adventures beyond your front lawn.
Inspired by old-school collegiate athletics, the Fieldhouse Sweats from Flint and Tinder put a fresh spin on a familiar silhouette complete with drawstring and slightly tapered ankle. The biggest upgrade? A French terry construction, which makes for a sumptuously soft feel.
For something a bit trendier, consider the Cobain Jogger from Cotton Citizen. Though these pants are just as comfy as any of the other options on this list (French terry, hello!), a slimmer fit and subtle detailing along the legs make for a more fashionable aesthetic. Plus, they’re available in a wide array of bright colors, so will undoubtedly bring a little oomph to any casual outfit.
