"The Holy Grail of Comfy Pants" and 21 Other Chic Sweatpants I Found for You

Yep, classic sweats have met their match. While jogger-style sweatpants reached peak popularity back in the spring and basically became the It piece of the whole year, fall is ushering in a new loungewear silhouette that's just as cozy but feels a tad fresher for the new season. Right now, it's all about wide-leg sweatpants. With a high rise and relaxed fit, they tend to look more like trousers and therefore contribute to an overall chicer, more polished vibe. And as you'll see up ahead, fashion people are even wearing them out of the house with sweaters and boots.

Since shopping is just what we do here, I went ahead and found the very best wide-leg sweatpants I know you're going to love. After perusing my favorite retailers like H&M, Nordstrom, and Zara, I found the following 22 sweats that are just as comfortable as they are chic, including one $16 pair in particular that an Amazon shopper described as "the holy grail of comfy pants". So with that, continue on to shop each pair and get inspired by how to wear them along the way.

As one reviewer put it, "I am on a quest for my holy grail of comfy pants—these are them!" I'm pretty sure it doesn't get any better than this.

I'm taking a cue from H&M and styling these with retro sneakers.
