It wouldn’t be a self-care round-up if we didn’t include the ultimate symbol of R&R and what I’ve considered the MVP of my current closet, sweatpants. On National Self-Care Day, I can’t think of anything more fitting.
I mean, they’ve been there for us (especially lately). I’d go as far as to say sweatpants are 2020’s mascot—right next to face masks of course. Don’t @ me.
From tie-dye to monochromatic and classic throwback silhouettes, there’s truly a style to match every mood possible. Whether you’re glued to the couch, or you’ve been social distancing your way around, there’s one thing I know as fact. The sweatpants trend is here to stay. Here are 7 styles to add to cart right now.
RICHER OR POORER
The ultimate street style sweats for every day of the week. These really do the most. From sneakers to heels to slide sandals, I mean it when I say these sweatpants play well with others. If there were a pair to do it all, these are them.
Sweatpants but make it sustainable. If you’re into functionality with a touch of understated cool, look no further. Chic, wearable, and good for the environment, this pair checks all the boxes. Recycled material and environmentally friendly dye goes into each one, so you can feel good about buying bougie sweats.
Basic never looked so good. When all else fails, keep it classic. These are the OG for a reason. Totally unisex and designed for maximum comfort, Champion just does it right. Truly versatile in every sense of the word, you can wear them anywhere and everywhere and in today’s climate, I don’t take that for granted.
When it comes to loungewear and sweatpants in particular, I’m all for the less is more approach. Let’s not overcomplicate things here, sweatpants are the name and comfort is the game. No need for frill or fluff. Classic and simple is the minimalist’s dream and these are just that.
Want to invest in a pair you’ll have forever? Look no further. Basic enough to wear on your most chill day at home but don’t get it twisted—these were made to be seen. The price tag is steep but this pair will only get better with age. Trust.
Old school and basic as hell but that’s exactly why we love them. If you want a safe bet that will surely wear well with age, go classic. Like your boyfriend’s sweats but better. An affordable option that still slaps, Hanes will never go out of style.
You know how tie-dye sweats have been making waves for the past few months now? Well, Cotton Citizen did it first. No shame in their tie-dye game, they know exactly what they’re doing. I call these, luxury meets lazy and there’s no pair I’d rather be caught wearing for the third day in a row.
