My At-Home Wardrobe Isn't Going Anywhere, and This Staple Is Still a Holy Grail

best wide-leg sweatpants



My life has completely changed in the last few years because of all the time we recently spent at home. Even though things in New York City have pretty much returned to normal, I still work from home multiple days a week and will often pick a movie night over a night out. That said, I'm definitely not letting go of my at-home wardrobe. I mean, who doesn't love the comfort and ease of loungewear? The fact that I get to live in it multiple days a week sparks the ultimate joy.

But there's one piece of loungewear in particular that I've been wearing on repeat: wide-leg sweatpants. They've become my go-to for just about everything and are the wardrobe staple I plan to take out of the pandemic and into the rest of my life. Whether working from home or running errands, I can always count on them to be comfortable and feel more stylish and elevated than traditional sweats. If you're looking for comfy, versatile pants you can wear just about anywhere, browse the wide-leg sweatpants I've discovered below.
