The Best Black Sweatpants, Starting at $18

Even before the days of social distancing and spending more time at home, black sweatpants were (at least, to me) a wardrobe must. Like with most fashion items, sweats and joggers simply look more polished in black, and they lend themselves to the most put-together casual looks possible. This means that while you can definitely wear them at home on the couch, you can also wear them pretty much anywhere without thinking twice. 

Now that that's all on the table, of course, I had to round up the best pairs you guys can buy now—and at every price point. Whether you're looking to spend less than $20 or are ready to throw down on an over-$200 pair, below you'll find all the black sweats worth considering, with something for everyone. High-waisted, extra baggy, slim, classic… I've got them all, so to get shopping, just keep scrolling.
