It’s almost 2022, and we’re still dressing nicely exclusively from the waist up. While some people opt for a pair of black leggings to coordinate with their nicest Zoom-ready tops, I tend to go for a pair of sweatpants—but only if they’re lined with fleece. The winter weather has settled in here in New York, so I rely on my favorite, coziest, sweats to keep me warm.
But it seems that a few of my most favorite pairs haven’t exactly been holding up so well due to the constant wear over the last 12 months. So, I rounded up a definitive list of all the best pairs of fleece-lined sweatpants that you can buy now and wear until you can step outside without needing ten different layers once again. From colorful, printed pairs to wide-leg picks that could almost double as a pair of work-appropriate bottoms, this list has it all. No one will ever know that you're not wearing a pair of office-approved trousers just off-screen.
