It’s hard to ignore the apparent return of winter. Having endured temps dipping below zero, we’re bundling up and stuffing ourselves into seemingly infinite layers of clothing and winter accessories to shield us from brisk winds and frosty air. And since the torturous cold has us milking every moment cozied up in sweats and sweaters, when it comes time to head to the office our temptation to bypass skirts, dresses, and slacks has surmounted to the point of coming up with any and all ways to stay indoors and in aforementioned sweatpants. But what if you could stay warm and snug while still look workweek ready? It seems that the days of baggy unsightly sweats are long gone. Instead, designers and brands are envisioning women of the world donned in stylish comfort, living in pants that are equal parts soft and chic.
With that, we give you a list of our favorite pairs that’ll sustain those lazy days induced by the cold while still keeping your fashion on fleek.
They say the devil is in the detail. That certainly applies with these dope Kith sweats that are a slim fitting silhouette with the slightest drop crotch, tapered legs, curved nylon drawcord tunnel, and two hand pockets to keep those paws warm. Each and every element provides an appeal to what could have been basic.
Sometimes you need an added edge to your very sleek and simple wardrobe. Clean, bright whites are nice but throw a little tude to the mix and you’ll spice up an otherwise stark hue. That’s why we love the badass biker sweats handcrafted in LA, which are lined with fuzzy fleece and finished with rose gold hardware bringing a sweet and stylish touch to these already too cool pants that’ll be all the envy in the workplace.
A his-meets-her classic sweatpant silhouette we love that’s got a casual Friday vibe that’ll replace your denim. Made from 100% Merino French terry fleece, which offers breathability and odor-absorbing qualities, you’ll be set to and from every and all destinations on either your lazy Sunday or manic Monday.
We have a love affair with ADAY and even featured the beautiful babes behind the brand on our site due to their stylish sensibilities involved in the athleisure line, which can take you from your morning meeting to an ass-kicking workout. We especially dig their Hail Yes Trackpants that have a glossy, buttery finish that’s reminiscent of luxe leather, which is a sexy day-to-night sweat that’ll look killer with stilettos.
It might not be enough to have some sweats to carry you through gloomy wintery days. Sure, comfort is key but you might need an added edge if and when the temps plummet down to the negatives. Luckily Vince has got us covered with their wool and cashmere blend sweats that are soft and sweet while still remaining in signature stylish fashion.
There’s no shame if your wardrobe is as loud and proud as you are. You shy away from boring solids in the hopes of your clothes reflecting your colorful personality, which means these sweats are most definitely for you. If you’re as creative as this marble ink print then you’ll know just how to sport them at work, the gym, or drinks with the girls.
Beautiful navy blue is a great alternative to overdone black on black. And with these well-structured stockinette-stitched cotton knit sweats made in Japan, you’ll show how ease and comfort can work at the office. Pair them with a silk crewneck blouse and kitten heeled booties for a lax yet oh-so-chic ensemble.
