    17 Pairs Of Pants That Are Comfy Enough To Give Your Leggings A Run For Their Money

    Move your leggings to the back of your closet because you may *never* wear them again.

    1. A pair of camo print joggers that'll let you ~comfortably~ transition from running errands to girls' night out.,

    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 $10.55+ (available in sizes S–3X and in 39 colors/designs).

    2. These cropped paper bag waist pants because the elastic waistband kinda makes it feel like a pair of sweatpants, but fancier for dates, work, and dinner.,

    Promising reviews: "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.

    "Oh my goodness I love these pants SO MUCH! They are extremely comfortable — soft and stretchy fabric, elastic waistband, and a gently tapered leg to give it some style without being too tight. I get tons of compliments when I wear them to work! I already have them in three colors, but honestly, I am probably going to buy some more. It’s like wearing yoga pants to work, except they actually look professional, unlike all those “yoga dress pants” you see on here that are, in fact, just leggings with belt loops. These are the real deal!" —Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXXL and in 46 colors/styles).

    3. A pair of mom jeans that are the perfect combo of roomy and fitted and pretty much turned me, a hater of jeans, into a believer again.


    I reaaally hate jeans...except for this pair. The material always feels way too heavy, but seeing as its getting colder and colder here in New York, leggings just won’t cut it. I liked the relaxed look of these jeans and decided to give ‘em a go since I’ve ordered pants from Lulus before and was very happy with them. These didn’t disappoint! They’re soft and actually fit me really well in the tush. The jeans have hardly any stretch to them, but because of the loose-fitted design, they don't feel restricting. They look a little cropped on the model but I’m not as tall so if I want a cropped look, I just roll up the ankle a little. Super cute and now I want to wear them everyday!

    Get it from Lulus for $54 (available in sizes 1–13).

    4. These floral print wide-leg pants because the light material and flowy design might actually make you feel like you're wrapped in a cloud.,

    Promising reviews: "I have never received so many compliments on any article of clothing I own! They're really pretty and nice and flowy. They're perfect for spring! It's still cold where I am, so I put on leggings underneath, and you couldn't even tell! I highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    "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 $21.99 (available in sizes 0/2, 4/6, and 8/10 and in two colors).

    5. A pair of high-waisted velvet pants for times when you can't stand another night out in itchy sequin pants.


    Promising review: “I never leave reviews but these pants are AMAZING! They are super high waisted, stretchy, and soft. I got the mustard color today and immediately ordered the second color after I tried them on. Fits true to size and so in love, they're like classy yoga pants!” —Trista C.

    Get it from Forever21 for $22.99 (available in sizes 1X–3X and in two colors).

    6. Or! These super stretchy faux leather leggings because they totally one-up your basic black cotton leggings and make you look extra stylish for class, work, parties, and events.,

    Promising review: "I bought these to wear for our trip to Europe. They fit nicely and show the shape of your legs well. The fabric is very flexible and very comfortable to wear on the plane. We arrived in the morning and didn't have a chance to take it off until evening after arriving in Paris. So glad I got this in time for my vacation." —Amaze

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–4X and in four styles).

    7. A pair of pleated ankle pants that you won't have to keep pulling up every time you stand up because, according to some reviewers, the waist band doesn't roll down on ya.,

    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 $27.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in five colors).

    8. These not-too-tight, not-too-loose chino pants because the last time you had comfortable pants WITH USEFUL POCKETS(!!!) was probably in the third grade.

    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 $12.06+ (most styles around $31; available in sizes 2–16 and in four colors).

    9. A pair of flare jeans that'll hang loose where you want 'em to and hug you in all the right places.


    Several reviewers say they're super stretchy (a win for comfort!), but sooo stretchy they recommend going a size down.

    Promising review: “I absolutely love the way these jeans fit. I have an hourglass figure with big hips and I sized down one size due to the reviews and I nailed it. They fit perfectly, however, they are really long so I will definitely need to wear heels. I highly recommend these jeans” —Angie R.

    Get it from Forever21 for $34.99 (available in sizes 12–18).

    10. These floral palazzo pants for those nights when you just wanna curl up by the fireplace in something that pretty much ~cascades~ with softness.,

    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 $12.99+ (available in sizes S–XXXL and in 33 designs).

    11. A pair of wide-leg corduroy pants so you can treat your calves to the gift of not feeling restricted all day long.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: “These are super cute, but most of all SUPER COMFY! definitely a cute/different look but they’re crazy long. I took mine to a local alterations place to have them hemmed, definitely couldn’t have worn them without having that done.” —zhirabay

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $98 (available in sizes 25–30).

    12. A pair of button-free, zipper-free jeggings — you can literally just pull them on and head out the door without dreading the pain of a button pressing into your tummy throughout the day.

    Promising review: "These jeans are exactly what I was looking for. They're lightweight, very thin (but not see-through), stretchy, but still have a jean feel and look. It's the perfect balance between leggings and actual jeans. The stretch is perfect. They bounce right back. They sit right at my belly button." —T. Stanfield

    Get it from Amazon for $15.20+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in three colors).

    13. These fleece sweatpants that are so warm and easy to move in that you might wonder why you even started wearing leggings in the first place.


    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 $8+ (available in sizes XL–5XL and in petite sizing).

    14. Or these joggers with a stylish, sporty fit you'll want to wear even when you're not going to the gym.,

    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 $13.89+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 44 colors/designs).

    15. A pair of high-waisted jeggings if you want to give denim a fighting chance but still don't want to completely abandon the soft feel of leggings.


    Get it from ASOS for $29 (available in sizes 14–22).

    16. These skinny jeans that — mark my words — you'll want to wear every dang day because not only do they cling to you in all the right places, but they're also available to accommodate different heights so you aren't left with the annoying bulk at your ankles.,

    Promising reviews: “I tend to have a bit of a hard time finding jeans that fit my body well. I have a booty and thick thighs, so I need something that hugs my lower body in the right places and these jeans do just that! They're stretchy enough to make room for my curves which is a must for my body type.” —Leslie

    "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 $6.74+ (available in sizes 2–28 and in short, medium, and long lengths. The pants are also available in 15 washes).

    17. And a pair of cropped corduroy flare jeans that are actually light enough to move with you and keep up with your busy schedule.


    Get it from ASOS for $22 (originally $56; available in sizes 14–22).
