    1. A pair of super soft control leggings you can use to work out, stretch out, sleep off...honestly, whatever., Amazon

    Promising review: "The picture I shared is an actual Snapchat I sent to the girls I work with and a couple friends the first day I wore these leggings! They are literally the best ever!!! I’m going to be purchasing more soon in different colors! They are not see-through and they do not fit awkward. If you are like me it is hard to find the perfect pair of leggings and I actually heard about these through a girl in one of my college classes who I don’t know. She was just talking out loud about how great her leggings were and I had to ask!!! You cannot go wrong with these!!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 31 color combinations).

    2. A pair of ultra-comfortable cuffed sweatpants designed with an elastic waist, pockets, and a stretchy material — you will literally live in these.

    Promising review: "I have bought several of these pants because they are the most comfortable things I've ever owned. I'm not a fashionista, but I'm aware that wearing sweatpants out of the house is not universally accepted, despite the majority of us doing it. However, I feel confident wearing these with a T-shirt or tank top whilst going out and about, and looking put together. I also got these because I have a tough time finding pants that don't push on my bladder too heavily like the jeans or slacks that I wear to work. I have interstitial cystitis and these pants are soft and fit well enough that I need not worry about any issues arising in that department. I'm not the biggest fan of all of the designs, but I'm sure there's a design out there for everyone. Or you can get the plain ones. Whichever works for you." —Featherpin

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–3X and in 73 colors).

    3. A pair of super stretchy 1822 Denim butter jeggings that'll make for perfect I-should-get-dressed-but-I-still-want-to-be-comfy-while-I-hang-around-my-house pants.

    Promising review: "These jeggings are amazing. They are so comfortable. It’s the perfect combo of jeans and leggings. Don’t hesitate to try these, you’ll love them. For reference, I’m 5-foot-9 and normally a size 8. They hit me above the ankle. I did order a size down, due to stretch. This is my second pair." —HeartRN96

    Get them from Nordstrom for $39 (available in sizes 23–34 and three colors).

    4. A pair of ultra-comfy embroidered French terry Bella Doña classic sweats that also happen to have a matching sweatshirt if you really want to get a full look.

    A model wearing the Dance Studio Jogger in Water Drop

    Promising review: "I would give these joggers 6 stars if I could. I bought my first pair about a month ago and already bought a second pair because I love them so much. They're comfortable while still looking cute. I definitely agree with the other reviews saying to size up. I typically wear a 6 in leggings and got these in an 8 and they fit comfortably. They're also very slimming and super flattering. Highly recommend spending the money because they're so worth it!" —Elizabeth A

    Get them from Lululemon for $98 (available in sizes 0–20 and in five colors).

    6. A pair of investment-worthy Spanx cropped-flare jeans I promise you you'll love — I have this exact pair and they're SO great!

On top of the waist being super stretchy, they have a panel in the front to make sure everything stays smooth and comfy. 10/10 would recommend.

    A model wearing the leggings in black

    Promising review: "Zella leggings are my go-to. These are, hands down, great quality. I can order them in 3X for a comfort fit or in a 2X for more of a compression fit, and both hold up very well to wear and washing. Love Zella leggings!" —SaralynPM

    Get them from Nordstrom for $59 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and 1X–3X).

    13. A pair of J. Crew's popular Jamie pants designed with an elastic waist, discreet pockets, and a perfect ankle length for that "I just need to not be wearing sweat pants" feel.

    J Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I’m not usually one for elastic waists. These pants, however, have changed my mind. The fit, quality, and style are amazing. They hang beautifully on the body and are so comfortable. While still looking stylish and put together, I felt as if I’d spent the day in my pajama pants. Arizona summers can be brutally hot and monsoon season humid. I managed to stay cool and comfortable in these. Ordered navy by mistake but kept them and followed up with the black as intended!" —Shoegoddess41

    Get them from J. Crew Factory for $39.50 (available in classic sizes 00–24, petite sizes 00–12 and in two colors).

    Forever 21

    16. A pair of Everlane's relaxed fit corduroy easy pants because honestly, I don't care how loud they are, corduroy pants are so awesome.


    Promising review: "The corduroy of these pants is supersoft — many times softer than the straight leg cheeky corduroys. The color of the brown is really special, too, sort of a silver brown. The waistband is so comfortable, not too tight. Short-legged folks like me, the leg is a bit long but not overly so, for going out in the snow you might want to fold up the hem!" — calltothewind

    Get them from Everlane for $58 (available in sizes 00–16 and in two colors).

    17. A timeless pair of distressed Spanx ankle skinny jeans — like I said before, I'm a huge fan of Spanx jeans and their skinny jeans are no exception. They have fully functioning pockets in the back but faux pockets in the front so everything stays smooth.

    Get them from H&M for $59.99 (available in sizes XS–L and in two colors).

    25. A pair of high-waisted Spanx flared trousers with a pull-on design that requires no buttoning or zippers!
