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.

Senior Market Editor

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently senior market editor. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
