It’s not breaking news to anyone that the past year has put a pause on “hard pants” for good. Sure, if you’re feeling extra fancy one day, you might crawl through your wardrobe to find your Narnia-adjacent jeans and try them on just for a laugh, but pajama pants, sweatpants, and general loungewear “soft pants” have become most of our daily go-to’s and evergreen closet staples. That being said, as vaccines (#bless) begin to roll out and the world starts to open back up little by little, it’s finally time to dust off our outfit-curating skills and put our fashion facilities to the test… while still being as cozy as possible. Enter: Luxe sweatpants.
Luxe sweatpants are your ultimate closet multitasker. They are cozy enough to lounge around the house in all day, while also being stylish enough to wear out and about and even garner quite a few compliments. They come in every style and color, are easy to dress up or down, and, since there are so many versatile options, they make for a great seasonal transition piece to add to your collection. Scroll down for 8 fancier sweatpants to add to your everyday collection.
