    Promising review: "I love these leggings! They've held up to every workout I've put them through (running, HIIT, hiking, strength workouts, etc).

    Promising review: "I love these pants so much I have two colors now! They do shrink in the wash so size up and they will be perfect. They do hold up nicely in the wash otherwise and still look like new. The pants are the perfect amount of soft and cozy!" —Stephanie

    Get them from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and five colors).

    3. Mid-rise joggers made from a breathable material that'll become your go-to while working from home in your apartment where you prefer to crank up the AC.

    4. Basic leggings with more than 10,000 (!!!) 5-star reviews so you can rest easy knowing they're a verified great purchase. And just think of how fab they'll look with an oversized sweater!,

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with these leggings. I have four pairs, and I practically live in them. I panic when I am down to my last pair and immediately go do laundry! They are so so comfortable and stretchy without being see-through. I am going to buy the capri version as well." —Jennifer T

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 26 colors and styles).

    5. A tie-dye sweatpants and long-sleeve set for a groovy option you can lounge in while rewatching That '70s Show for the hundredth time.

    Promising review: "I purchased a medium in the tie-dye blue and white set. The pants fit very nicely, and the shirt also fits great. Both pieces also mix and match with other items in my closet easily. The quality of the fabric is GREAT! I was very surprised to see the inside of the set has a nice soft lining, and the outside is very good soft fabric." —Emerson and Amy

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 17 styles).

    6. Reversible sherpa sweatpants to add to your work from home wardrobe. They'll have you looking chic on all your video chat meetings and eventually you can totes wear them to brunch., Amazon

    Promising review: "These are the most comfortable and warm sweatpants I’ve ever owned. I literally have made them my relaxing and sleeping choice since it is so cold early in the season. They are not what you would call fashionable, but that’s not why you would own them. I ordered a second pair and may even get a third as I now can’t live without them. Going to be great this winter. If it is warmth and comfort you want then go for it. They are not slimming at all so if that matters to you, don’t bother. I have not washed them yet so can’t speak to the care of them. Be sure to double knot the ties or they will unravel or come out. That is the only thing I would change: finish the ties so this isn’t necessary. I’m glad Oprah hasn’t discovered these so there are enough to go around."Shopper Aware

    Get them from Amazon for $18.88+ (available in sizes XS–XL and eight colors).

    7. High-rise leggings you can count on to stay in place — because no one wants pants that bunch or sag.

    Girlfriend Collective, Melanie Aman / BuzzFeed

    My colleague Melanie Aman loves these leggings, she said:

    "I usually wear them for low-impact workouts, like Pilates and yoga (and lounging on the couch), but they didn't let me down during high-impact HIIT cardio classes either. The material is really breathable so even though I'm sweating a lot during my workouts, the leggings don't get swampy."

    You can check out her full review of these Girlfriend Collective leggings here.

    Get them from Girlfriend Collective for $68 (available in sizes XXS—6XL and nine colors).

    8. Strectchy jeggings that'll look like denim but feel like leggings — what more could you want in a pair of pants?

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, American Eagle

    These "dream jeans" are *so* stretchy and soft that I prefer them to pretty much any other pair in my closet. As seen in the photo above, I was able to comfortably get on the ground to pet a pup without any issue (priorities). They don't cut into my waist — if I was capable of doing a cartwheel, I could definitely do one in these. I love them so much I sent a few pairs along to my sister who is also now obsessed.

    Promising review: "These are pretty jeans. I am usually an XS/0 but since they are stretchable I figured I'd go a size down and these fit perfectly. They fit just right, i love how they stretch and how comfortable I feel in them all day." —Sandra

    Get them from American Eagle for $44.96 (available in sizes 000–24, in short, regular, and long sizes, and seven styles).

    9. Marled knit joggers you'll probs want to buy five pairs of so you can wear them every day of the week — they're that comfortable!, Amazon

    Promising review: "These pants are the most comfortable joggers! I absolutely love them. I wear them all the time. I will say they run small. I am 5-foot-1, roughly 125 lbs. and got the large size. I didn't want them to be tight. They fit great and feel super comfy! Definitely recommend sizing up. I normally wear a small or medium in joggers." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in sizes S–L and five colors).

    10. Fleece-lined faux leather leggings that'll add a little *somethin', somethin'* to your relaxed look.,

    Promising review: "I got sooo many compliments! I love the way my butt looks in them. I'm a hairstylist and I loved how after a haircut i didn't feel itchy because the hair just slid off. They're fleece-lined too, so that is just a bonus in comfortable land! Love love love; them i got a 3X and they fit perfect! I'm usually super nervous with ordering pants online, but this was a win for sure." –M. Slotterbeck

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 2X–4X; also available in sizes XS–XL in the same listing).

    11. Or Spanx faux leather leggings, in case you're a sweaty human like myself and a fleece-lined option simply won't do.

    I splurged on these last year. I don't know why I waited so long! They're super soft on the inside, edgy on the outside, and just freakin' fabulous. If I venture to any family gatherings this holiday season you better believe you'll find me in these bad boys. I love pairing them with an oversized sweater for a look that's stylish but still cozy.

    Get them from Nordstrom, Spanx, or Amazon for $77+ (available in sizes XS-3X).

    12. Plaid leggings you can use to convince your strict parents once and for all that leggings *are* pants.

    a model wearing the sweatpants in black

    Promising review: "I bought these sweatpants since I knew I would be working from home more frequently and was SO impressed by how comfortable these were! They are a bit baggy towards the top (I'm 5-foot-2) but I love pocket space and fitted ankle cuffs! Perfect for a cozy day!" —SamanthaC863843836

    Get them from Nike for $55.97+ (available in sizes XS–2XL, 1X–3X, and four colors).

    Promising review: "Love these leggings!! I am typically a size 14-16 in AE jeans and opted for a size L. They fit a bit snug but I like that so it feels more compressive! I use these leggings to workout and they stay in place, don’t show underwear/aren’t see through and they are buttery soft!" —Alex

    Get them from Aerie for $38.46 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL, in short and long lengths, and seven styles).

    15. Incredibly soft tie-dye sweatpants with pockets (!!!) so you'll easily be able to stow your phone and keys away while taking a quick walk around the neighborhood for some air.

    bffsandbabes / Etsy, bffsandbabes / Via

    I have other pieces of clothing from this Etsy shop and simply love 'em. They're so soft, the quality is great, and it comes with the added bonus of supporting a small business. If you're in the market for a full set they also make matching sweatshirts!

    Get them from bffsandbabes on Etsy for $79 (available in sizes XS–XL and five styles).

    16. Camo print joggers you can count on to *blend* right in with all your other go-to cozy day clothes.

    Promising review: "These are super cute and flattering. Super cute and trendy, and very affordable price! All my friends ordered them after I did, because I liked them so much! I would purchase more if they came in more patterns!" —luci

    Get them from Target for $22 (available in sizes XS–2XL).

    17. Pull-on joggers that'll feel so soft against your skin you'll probably never want to take them off – luckily right now you don't have to!,

    Promising review: "Imagine microfiber, how it's light and has a smooth texture. Then imagine if microfiber and velvet had a baby. This is that baby! It's light and smooth like microfiber, but also has some of the warmth and texture (not *quite* fuzzy, but holds warmth still). VERY comparable to suede. Super super comfy, almost like you're wearing pajamas, these are the ultimate lounging sweats!" —Sabrina

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XL, 1X–3X and 120 styles).

    18. Super soft leggings designed with a moisture wicking fabric for your workout sessions *and* beyond — I personally wear these while working from my kitchen all day long.

    a model in the black leggings

    These are quite possibly the silkiest leggings I own! I bought them back at the beginning of quarantine and have been living in them ever since. I've been wearing them to relax more than to sweat in because, IMO, they deserve better!

    Promising review: "Best leggings I’ve tried in a while. The waist is high enough to give good belly compression and the fabric and lack of side seam make them look extremely high quality. I could just as easily wear these under a cute little dress as leggings or go run a 5K in them." —mimi

    Get them from Target for $40 (available in sizes XS–2XL, 1X–4X, and three colors).

    19. Puddle pants to make it appear like your legs go on for daaaaays and because sometimes you want to feel a little glamorous even when you're at your comfiest.,

    Promising review: "These are not your typical cheap no-name online stretchy pants. They're a heavier weight, so they don't show every bump and line, they are clearly well-made, their front seam is sewn down, so they look cleaner and more professional that other stretchy pants, they have pockets (!), and THEY'RE WASHABLE. I bought three more pairs. Love them!" —Zasu Pitts

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 21 styles).

    20. Mickey Mouse sweatpants that'll bring an extra touch of *pixie dust* to your Disney+ binge.

    red joggers with different mickey faces down the right leg

    Get them from shopDisney for $24.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL).

    21. Opaque leggings you'll find yourself gravitating to every day as they'll easily go with pretty much all of your cold weather wardrobe. Sweatshirts? Yep. Sweaters? Sure! Jackets? Also, a yes.


    I am wearing these leggings right now as I write this. They are soft, not too thick, and are not at all see through. In fact, the only thing I asked for last Christmas was three pairs of these leggings — and urged my mom to get them for my sisters as well. I'm a big fan!

    Promising review: "Wow! I was extremely skeptical of these leggings considering they’re a 'one size fits all' type of deal. I am 5-foot-5 and curvier. I was worried they were going to be too tight or see-through. However, that’s not the case! They are not see-through even after three washes so far. They are extremely soft and comfortable. The only thing I noticed is they are more of a muted black compared to some of my other leggings but it’s barely noticeable. I liked them so much I ordered a second pair. Def would recommend!" —nichole campton

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in one size and plus size and in 22 colors).

    22. Plush pants from Kim Kardashian's Skims Cozy Collection I can only imagine make your legs feel like they're wrapped inside a cloud.

    23. A cable-knit two-piece set you can count on to keep you nice 'n' toasty as the weather starts to cool down.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.59+ (available in sizes S–L and 16 different styles of set).

    24. Wide-leg pants with a relaxed fit you won't be able to get enough of! They'll look simply darling paired with a plain tank and fuzzy slides — you'll be a loungewear style star in no time.

    Promising review: "I bought these to pack in my hospital bag for after delivery and these were the softest!! Loved the fit, a nice long length which is perfect! They've been washed and dried hundreds of times and they still remain my most comfortable pair of pants! would buy in all the colors!" —Ashley

    Get them from Target for $19.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL and two styles).

    25. Sweatpants with the Friends logo down the side that'll be *there for you* whether you're still mourning the seasons being removed from Netflix or while you're digging through your old DVD sets so you can still have a marathon.

    Promising review: "The embroidery of the monogram is perfect, although I asked for the 'circle' font and got the 'fancy circle' font instead. I can look past the minor mistake thanks to how comfy these sweatpants are, they’re as soft as a blanket! BUT, do not put them in the dryer. They shrank the first time I washed them and they’re not as soft anymore." —Madison Ford

    Get them from SaltwaterPrep on Etsy for $35 (available in sizes XS–2XL and four colors).

    27. Wide-leg sweatpants with a cropped fit so you can show off your favorite set of quirky socks.


    Promising review: "These are my new happy pants. To lounge and to work in my art studio. Sooo soft and not too thick. I love them! Ordering another pair! As to those who noted the legs look cut and pockets look worn etc. This is clearly visible in photos. No big secret. Does not take away from anything." —JANA

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and eight colors).

    28. Cable knit pants that'll trick your body into *thinking* its wearing pajamas when in reality you're all dolled up.

    29. Oversized sweats featuring a cinched bottom and pockets (!!!) you'll have a really hard time talking yourself out of wearing most days.

    Promising review: "I like these pants. They are high-waisted and baggy. Definitely not as thick as in stock photo, but it’s OK because I can wear them in warm weather too. I also like that they are very soft, not paper like and crunchy." —Sushi

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and five colors).

    30. A striped knit top and leggings set you can throw on when you want to feel comfortable but still somewhat coordinated. It's a wonder how a matching outfit can really improve the day!

    Promising review: "I am 5-foot-3 and 127 lbs and I bought the medium. Although they are a tiny bit long, I am extremely pleased with these athletic pants! The elastic around the waist is not super tight, which I love. They are super comfortable and fit true to size. Couldn't have asked for more." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $15.45+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and three styles).

    32. A pair of patterned high-waisted leggings with more than 10,000 5-star reviews to convince you absolutely need them in your life.,

    Promising review: "I'm a stylist and have been trying on many, many Amazon leggings for fit. These are the best for my curvy hips and a smaller waist. I am about a size 12, and these are not too thick but have compression. The feel is GREAT. They seem very high quality. They are so completely comfortable I am wearing them without something covering my butt, for the first time in about a year. (These show off my curves!) I'm wearing a size L and am now shopping for several other pairs!!" —Auretha, Soul Stylist

    34. And festive pajama pants with a matching long sleeve, because why should we only wear holiday pajamas during December?

    Heather Braga / Buzzfeed, Kohls

    My cousin and I (as pictured above) can be seen wearing the designs from last year. These Lauren Conrad pajamas are the freakin' softest thing I own. I have multiple pairs and easily wear the pants with whatever other shirts I have lying around — who cares, they're pajamas! I love that they're festive and take lazy days to the next level.

    Promising review: "These pajamas are the softest, cutest, comfiest PJs I have every purchased! True to size." —AshlieL
