    1. Stylish camo print joggers with a high waist that fits comfortably and never slips. Plus, it has four deep pockets which means that your leggings and purses might become a thing of the past.,

    Promising review: "I looooove these! I was skeptical at first purchasing these pants, just because I thought they may not fit the way I hoped. Well, let me tell you, they were everything that I was hoping for and more. It's like they're not too tight, but they fit just right to still show my curves. But most importantly, they're comfortable, and they're actually really high waisted!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in sizes S–3X and in 39 colors/designs).

    Get it from Express for $60 (originally $80; available in sizes 00—14).

    3. Cropped paper bag waist pants that feel light and airy! The elastic waistband and stylish design are perfect for dinner dates but tbh, you're going to want to wear them 24/7.,

    Promising review: "These pants are sooo cute, and they have pockets! I am an event planner and wore them to a corporate conference with booties, and received so many compliments (even an email asking where to buy)!" —Mary H.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXXL and in 46 colors/styles).

    4. A pair of ~butter jeggings~ to prove style and comfort are not mutually exclusive. The snug, stretchy fit and chic look make these a must-have item.

    Promising review: "These are amazing. They fit perfectly. They are true to size and are so buttery soft you feel like you have pajama pants on. They look great as well. I would not hesitate to buy these. They are now my favs!" —Snowdad

    Get it from Nordstrom for $39 (available in sizes 24—33).

    5. Floral print wide leg pants that combine all the benefits of a beautiful flowy skirt and your favorite pajama pants into one fabulous item.,

    Promising review: "These are very comfortable, flowy pants. The material is a nice crepe. I wore a pair of nude shaper shorts underneath because I was nervous they’d be see-through in sunlight and I was wearing them to church for Easter. They're super comfortable and fit true to size. They could probably be worn with heels if you pull them down on the waist a bit, which is possible with the elastic waistband." —B. Shannon

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes 0/2, 4/6, and 8/10 and in two colors).

    6. A pair of distressed woven black joggers for pants that look like denim but feel like cotton.

    Quite a few reviewers say they run small, so definitely order up a size!

    Promising review: "I love these pants! They are comfortable and look super stylish. I plan to order them in more colors. I should also mention that I'm short, and these fit me perfectly. So if you're a taller gal, they would likely not work well for you. But for petite ladies, buy them all!" —A. Bustamante

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in five colors).

    8. A heavenly pair of chino pants that is simultaneously snug and loose without being baggy. Truly the perfect everyday pants.

    Promising review: "It is difficult for me to find a chino pant that is flattering. These fit great! I wish these came in petite, but I just fold them and they look fine. The material is great and does not feel cheap. I want to buy them in other colors as well! They’re also very comfortable!" —Christine Torres

    Get it from Amazon for $29 (available in sizes 2–16 and in four colors).

    9. Flared jeans which are dying to make their Zoom dance party debut. Thanks to the high-rise and the stretchy denim, you'll be able to show off your TikTok moves with complete confidence knowing your legs won't feel restricted by rigid denim.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $16 (originally $34.99; available in sizes 12—18).

    10. Terry soft joggers so plush you'll want to have them permanently attached to your legs. These babies are perfect for bed, lounging, and slipping on for frigid winter trips to the grocery store, but are still lightweight enough for summer months.

    Get it from Lively for $45 (available in sizes XS—L and two colors).

    11. Floral palazzo pants that were made for lounging. The lightweight material feels cool to the touch so it will keep you cozy without making it feel like you're overheating.,

    Promising review: "I looooove these! I was skeptical at first purchasing these pants, just because I thought they may not fit the way I hoped. Well, let me tell you, they were everything that I was hoping for and more. They fit amazing. It's like they're not too tight, but they fit just right to still show my curves. But most importantly, they're comfortable and they're actually really high-waisted!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes S–XXXL and in 33 designs).

    12. Fleece sweatpants to become your winter uniform because they are basically a Snuggie for your legs. They can take you from the living room, to virtual meetings, then the grocery store. All you have to do is rinse, wash, repeat.

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to purchase these — at that price, you'd think there may be something wrong, but NO! These are SO COMFORTABLE!!! I bought them for garden work since I am bending constantly. The waistband is truly comfortable even when you bend over. I have not yet washed them, but since they are a cotton/poly blend, I foresee no problems. I am buying two more!!!" —Suzanne

    Get it from Amazon for $9.96 (available in sizes XL–5XL and in petite sizing).

    13. Sporty joggers for those who mostly prefer the leisure part of the athleisure fashion trend. They're fashionable enough to dress up, comfy enough to lounge in, and you can definitely strike a tree pose in them with ease.,

    Reviewers recommend sizing up for a more loose-fitting look. But, if you'd prefer a closer fit, you can go with your usual size.

    Promising review: “These pants are super comfy. I've been looking for some super cute and stylish sweats that can be dressed up or down and these fit the bill. I definitely will be purchasing more from this company. One thing I will say they are true to size. They fit where I want them to accentuate certain curves and are loose where they are everyday functional. But, if you like the fitted look go a size down from your regular size.” —kayla

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and in 14 colors/designs).

    14. Faux leather high-waisted wide-leg pants that look straight off the runway. The removable tie-belt allows you to customize the fit, and the flare bottom ensures you always feel light, airy, and comfortably chic.

    Get it form ModCloth for $59.99 (originally $69; available in sizes XS—4X).

    15. Levi's mid-rise skinny jeans — I'm convinced these were the inspiration for The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants because these fit absolutely everyone phenomenally! They magically conform to your shape and stretch to allow you to move comfortably.,

    Promising review: "I looooove these jeans. They're lightweight but still denim, have a comfortable stretch, and I can totally wear them all day long. They're roomy but still skinny jeans, which I don't get but I love it! I can travel with these, wear them to work, on the weekends, or anything." —Jessie P

    Get it from Amazon for $16.28+ (available in sizes 2–28 and in short, medium, and long lengths, plus 15 washes).

    16. Joggers with drawstring ties so you can customize the fit. They're also super stretchy and are as soft on the outside as they are on the inside. You'll have to fight off the nonstop urge to pet your pants because these feel ~ahmazing~.

    Get it from Backcountry for $68 (available in sizes XS—L and in two colors).

    17. Super soft jogger pants that combine the best parts of a warm winter jacket, fluffy towel, and plush comforter into one item. Basically you'll feel snug as a bug.
