From Sweater-Pants to Secretly Stretchy Jeans, 30 Cute Bottoms Made for Travel

Best travel pants



I've been thinking about travel a lot lately. It's nearly November, which means the holiday travel season is upon us, and preparing for it ahead of time helps to alleviate my stress around it. One of the many ways in which I do so is by periodically collecting a few pieces that would be great for travel. And the most important element of any travel outfit (in my humble opinion) is pants. Wear the wrong pair of pants, and your travel day is borderline ruined. We've all been there.

This fun little roundup is centered on very comfortable and very chic pants to wear on planes, trains, and automobiles. I divided it into four categories to make it even more user-friendly. So whether you're looking for leggings, sweatpants, sweater-pants, or stretch jeans, you're likely to find what you need to make your future trips more enjoyable.

Stretchy Jeans

Re/Done's Comfort Stretch line truly lives up to its name. (Trust me—I own a pair.)

I'm pretty sure that chicer elastic-waist slouchy jeans don't exist.

Baggy jeans aren't typically also made of stretch fabric, but these are.

People might notice these are secretly sweatpants, and that'll make them love them even more. 


Some of our editors have already tested these on flights.

These Amazon gems probably won't stay in stock for long.

These are insanely soft, and there are several matching sweaters to pair with them from Bandier.

There's a reason these keep selling out.

Love to see that price point.


If you've tried Alo leggings, you know these are going to be good.

My love for stirrup leggings knows no end.


These beauties come in black, too.

Kind of the perfect basic sweatpants, if you ask me.

This tennis-inspired pair is both trendy and timeless.

The split hem makes these infinitely cooler.

For when you just want something simple and safe.
