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.
