I Predict These Popular H&M Pants Will Replace Sweatpants This Summer

Controversial statement: I don't know how much longer I can wear sweatpants. I live in the South, and it's now May, so any clothing item with the word "sweat" in it is going on the back burner (with the exception being sweatshorts). Subsequently, I've been on the hunt for comfortable pieces to wear instead of sweatpants. Per usual, H&M, which always seems to know what basics we need before we do, came to the rescue.

Among H&M's new arrivals, I spotted a pair of linen joggers that, like sweatpants, have an elastic waistband and an easy fit. They're also $35, come in seven neutral colors, and have 4.5 stars from 72 glowing reviews. (H&M also stocked them last summer.) Plus, they've earned H&M's Premium Quality distinction. I noticed that several colors are already starting to fly out of stock, so I fully expect that many people will be trading their sweatpants for linen pants. Keep scrolling to shop the popular pants in every color, as well as more H&M pieces to trade your sweatpants for this summer.
