The best sweatpants are the ones you want to wear over and over again. This workout basic, in fact, has been popular since the 1920s—sweatpants were first invented in France for athletes to run and stretch in. Now, they are synonymous with all-day comfort, and for good reason: You can throw on a pair for any number of activities, whether it’s relaxing on the couch, running errands, traveling on a plane or doing actual workouts. Sweatpants—in all their comfortable glory—are a wardrobe hero.
Lately, both fashion and sportswear brands have been turning out fresh, elevated spins on the classic: Lululemon’s French Terry joggers keep you cool for workouts and zipping around on the weekend. Tory Burch’s track pants are cut from velour and look chic with sneakers for a night out. Quince’s cashmere sweats are cozy enough to sleep in. Bold colors—neons and pastels—have turned sweats into a fashion statement, too.
Ahead, our list of the best sweatpants for women, to fit every style aesthetic and price point. And to finish off your look, here are the best sneakers and best sports bras to pair them with.
