Understandably, we’ve gone soft when it comes to our wardrobes, lounging about in hoodies, boxers, lounge pants, and, of course, sweatpants. But that’s no excuse to not put your best foot forward with improved styles of casual wear.
The rise of athleisure and pioneering streetwear designers have streamlined sweatpants’ baggy silhouettes — without sacrificing comfort — into bottoms that are stylish enough for the office, happy hour, and summer vacations. With that said, we put together some of the best pairs of sweats you should consider wearing right now.
