Sweatpants are a cozy staple in every woman's wardrobe. Slipping on a pair is no longer thought of as "sacrificing style for comfort," especially since celebrities like Hailey Bieber and Emily Ratajkowski wear sweats on the regular as part of their athleisure (opens in new tab) ensembles. Loungewear has finally hit the mainstream, whether you're wearing joggers at home while binge-watching Netflix or slipping on a matching sweat set for brunch.
Today, the humble sweatpant comes in endless prints, colors, fabrics (I'll take silk, please), and even different leg lengths. You can style sweatpants multiple ways—by pairing them with a denim jacket (opens in new tab) for spring, for example, or with a crop top while you attempt those TikTok dance challenges. And shoe-wise, they go with everything—wear them with slippers, sandals, sneakers, and more. Ahead, the best sweatpants for women in 2022, whether you're craving a classic grey style or a trendy tie-dye pair.
We can’t decide what we love most about these sweatpants: the cozy fleece, the pretty green color, or the just-slouchy-enough fit. Actually never mind—it’s a three-way tie.
These joggers are so soft and comfy, you’ll be shocked to learn they’re mostly made from recycled plastic bottles. And if you’re someone who likes to actually, well, sweat in their sweatpants, you’ll also be thrilled to know they’re moisture-wicking.
File this wide-leg style under “sweatpants that look like real pants.” Made in organic-certified French terry, they’re just as comfy as any other style on this list, but thanks to the silhouette, they’re 100 percent office-appropriate.
Sometimes, you just want to put on a pair of sweatpants that are cool and oversized without looking, well, ridiculous. These are those sweatpants. Plus, the brushed fabric (made from a blend of organic cotton and post-consumer recycled polyester) is as cozy as it gets, so you’ll never want to take them off.
Sweats may now be fully acceptable outside attire, but few styles are decidedly runway-worthy. This tie-dye Rodarte pair is one of those select few—prepare to let the compliments roll in.
Not even the fanciest person in the world can resist cashmere sweatpants. Available in six colorways, these luxe joggers are practically made for curling up and living your best Nancy Meyers life—even if you’re in a studio apartment.
Everlane’s elevated basics never let us down, including these cozy joggers. Made from French terry rendered from GOTS-certified organic cotton, you won’t feel bad about stocking up on all six easy-to-wear colors
Pretty much everything Alo makes is softer than soft, including these rib-knit joggers. Go for the matching hoodie, and you found your new go-to work-from-home (and let’s be honest, weekend) outfit.
Turns out, Kim Kardashian knows how to make a damn good pair of joggers. These best-selling sweats have been all over Instagram but they also work IRL. Oh, and they come in sizes up to a 5X!
When I heard that Heron Preston and Calvin Klein had teamed up for a new collection, I just knew I would want every single piece. These classic sweatpants are at the top of my must-buy list.
Some sweatpants can feel too oversized, especially if you're under 5'5, so this slender-fitting pair from Feat does the trick. They feel lightweight and are so easy to style.
Light-as-air silk transforms your basic sweatpants into something that feels chic and cool for the summer months. Plus, this pair from Lunya comes in four other colors if the peachy pink hue isn't for you.
These stretchy sweats are designed to keep you cool and dry while you work out, but also totally work for a day spent lounging around the house.
If you're on the taller side, this pair is for you! They're designed with a 27.5" inseam so they won't look too cropped.
I bought these super-soft sherpa-lined joggers for winter days and nights spent walking the dog, and let me tell you—it's like walking in a cloud. They're thick and heavy, so they're definitely joggers that you'll put away for spring and summer, but come winter, they'll be the only sweats you wear.
These are technically called "Lounge Pants," so you have the green light to wear them outside and not feel like you're underdressed. They're also made from 95 percent Egyptian cotton so they'll basically feel like your favorite luxe bedsheets.
Classic Black Sweatpants
If you need a classic pair of sweats, you'll gravitate towards this pair. These ankle-length bottoms have an elastic waistband and come in four different colors.
I get lost watching dance choreography videos on YouTube, and I often notice that dancers practice in baggy sweats and crop tops. While I can't dance to save my life, I can steal their style and get myself a pair of baggy sweats to hang out in while I watch other people dance.
Aritzia's sweats offerings know no boundaries—they have so many options! One of my favorite styles is this high-waisted, slim fit pair because they are so flattering.
Petite girls, rejoice! These sweats are designed with a shorter leg length so that you're not swimming in excess fabric.
The brand proclaims, "You're going to live in these sweats," and man, are they right. These rainbow sweatpants, which come in a range of colors, are super soft and go without everything without being boring.
These are the kind of sweatpants that could totally pass for actual pants when styled correctly. We won't tell if you won't.
