Given our stay-at-home reality right now, there’s no doubt my sweatpants are getting more wear than ever before. From Zoom hangouts to Netflix binging, fashion girls all over the ‘gram have been snapping pics in their coziest pairs, styling them with everything from tube socks to oversize button-down shirts.
If you’re anything like us and are racking up a lot of mileage on your sweatpants odometer, then you may want to consider some of these cool and comfy options below. I’ve combed the internet high and low to bring you the most-loved sweatpants based on excellent reviews, five-star ratings, and have the fashion-girl stamp of approval.
Read on as I share some of the most highly touted sweatpants on the internet and some snippets of the reviews they received. Plus, you'll see a few ways fashion girls have been styling them.
These are one of Urban Outfitters' top-rated styles. Made from soft cotton fleece with a relaxed fit and elastic cuffs, they're perfect for lazy lounging.
"Obsessed! I have a hard time finding sweats that stay up on my waist and these are perfect! I’m definitely going to get these in more colors."
These $13 sweatpants have racked up so many amazing reviews, and come in multiple cool colors. Black, heather gray, and cream seem to be the most popular. They're lightweight with an elasticized waistband (which we definitely appreciate right now), and you can't go wrong with the price tag.
"These joggers are sooooo insanely comfortable. Crazy for the price. I bought one pair and wear them every single day so I’m definitely going to be purchasing more. I got a small and I feel like they are slightly large for a small but I like that because it makes them more cozy."
A few of my fellow editors absolutely love these Champion sweats for their cool, relaxed fit, wildly comfortable feel, and vintage-inspired look. And it looks like the customers love them too. These get super-positive reviews.
"So comfortable. So soft. I love them! Highly recommend."
Outdoor Voices sweats always sell out super quickly. They are beautiful quality and have a' 90s feel to them, which have drawn the attention of the fashion set. Customers also love the cool colorways they come in.
"Got these today and I plan to be buried in them! They are super comfy and still flattering, I'm a medium but I ordered them in a small so that they would be slimmer and fit my short legs and they are great! They are the best quarantine uniform!"
Alo's high-waisted fitted sweatpants are loved for their comfortable, soft, and elevated design. Moreover, they keep their shape after many washes which is always a win-win.
"Cozy and soft, I never want to take them off! These joggers are the perfect fit, and I'm extremely picky about joggers and have never found a pair I love. They are flattering to curves and not baggy but not too tight or restrictive. Material very soft and comfortable. The moto detailing gives just enough detail to keep them from being boring."
If you're looking for something with a roomier fit, these are the perfect option. Customers love them for their comfort and recommend sizing down.
"Soft, good quality with the perfect high waist and very comfortable. I have them in 3 colors and I'm obsessed."
With over 70% of customers giving these relaxed, straight-fit and super-soft French terry sweatpants five-star reviews, it's safe to say you're going to happy you purchased them.
"These are great! Perfect length, soft, adjustable at the waist with the ties not being too short, and wash and dry well. I bought 3 more pairs and all have a consistent fit. I’m more apple shape and these work!"
Entire World has a cult following among the style set and is loved for its retro silhouettes and fun colors. As someone who personally owns this pair, I can attest to how comfy and Insta-worthy they are.
Perfect for cold, rainy days, these sweats have a classic fit with a broken-in feel and come in a whopping eight versatile hues. Moreover, it gets insanely good five-star reviews.
"Best sweats ever. I’ve never had a better more comfy pair of sweatpants in my life. Perfect fit, weight, length, style and has pockets—a huge bonus so you have a place to put your phone when walking two dogs."
Both Aritzia's Slim Sweatpant and Boyfriend Sweatpant get excellent reviews. Made from a lightweight fleece featuring invisible pockets and a high-waisted silhouette, these are a cute option to wear in and out of the house.
"Perfect slim fit which makes your bum look super nice.I hope they come out with lots more colors in both this silhouette and their boyfriend fit sweatpants—which are also great."
I personally own a few pairs of Lou & Grey sweatpants and words cannot describe how soft and cozy they are! They sell out fast but the brand constantly comes up with new colors and prints. They run slightly large, so I would recommend sizing down.
"Holy heck—these are the softest sweatpants I have ever felt! I didn't want to take them off. Super cozy and super-super soft."
Made from a soft french terry fabric, these are perfect for working out or going out. They get strong five-stars reviews.
"Simple and classy—these are made of soft french terry material, have a medium thickness, a good weight, and are not saggy. They are exactly the kind of simple sweatpants I was searching for. You could use them for a winter workout or daily wear paired with something like a leather jacket."
Spotted on some of our favorite influencers and celebs all over the 'gram (Pernille Teisbaek and Rosie Huntington Whiteley are fans), the stylishly timeless sweats will add an elevated touch to your off-duty look.
Style meets comfort with these cool-girl sweatpants. Customers love the great quality fabric, the good fit, and the luxury feel of this Nike pair. They also come in a versatile heather grey color here.
"I absolutely love these pants. They are so comfortable. Definitely my fave pair of pants to lounge in. Very good quality."
Ragdoll is known for its vintage-inspired essentials, and fashion girls on Instagram are smitten with its silhouettes and hues (faded blue and stone hues being the most popular).
"I haven't always been a fan of sweatpants but these changed my mind. I could legit live in these."
These wrinkle-free ankle sweatpants are made from a lightweight stretch fabric with a lovely cozy-soft feel. They're also versatile enough to dress up or down. This pair gets a ton of five-star reviews.
"Fit like a slice of heaven for my bottom half. Super stretchy but still have a nice fitted look. They look just like black cropped slacks but much comfier."
If you're looking for something über-plush and cozy that will get you through colder days, then look no further than these sherpa-lined, warm sweatpants. With over 400 positive reviews, customers absolutely love the cushiness and comfort.
"The best, best, best thing I've bought from Amazon. They don't shrink much after washing/drying. They're wonderfully warm and cozy."
Super versatile and lightweight, these are perfect for working out, brunching, and running errands alike.
"These pants are ultra soft and comfortable. The waste band fits well and does not dig in, like other brands."
These relaxed straight-leg drawstring sweatpants get off-the-chart Amazon reviews. They come in eight cool colors if you find yourself tempted to buy more than one.
"They're soft and good quality. Great to wear indoors and outdoors. They look good and are war. Plus they don't lose their shape."
If you're looking for a cheap and easy pair of comfy sweats to throw on at home, these are a great option. I personally own them in black and wear them on repeat because they're roomy and super comfy. I would advise to size down, as they run much larger than expected. But you can't beat the price.
"The pants are so comfortable that I bought them in three colors. I love wearing them around the house during the day. They do run large so make sure you purchase a size smaller than what you normally wear. If you are looking for a warm, soft, comfy sweat pant for a very reasonable price, these would be my recommendation."
