Sundays are all about lounging, right? So let’s discuss my ongoing search for great pairs of straight leg sweatpants. It might sound dumb, but even though I just wear sweatpants around my apartment (I will never master that whole J. Crew, wearing sweatpants with heels to go out look), I still want them to be cute. And a good straight leg pair is seriously hard to find! They need to fit well – as in, be fitted enough that they’re not huge and droopy, but also not be tight because duh, they’re sweatpants (not leggings). I especially like when they’re banded on the bottom, like guy’s sweats. I recently snagged a pair at Old Navy that I think hit all of the right notes, and they come in tall which is a necessity for me:
I’m loving them because they have a good slim fit but are still totally comfortable, and they’re really lightweight, which is great (I hate when sweatpants are suffocatingly heavy). I got them in black (just nice to have something different from gray). They also show a bit of ankle, which I like for the warmer months ahead. Also they’re crazy well-priced. They’re on sale right now, AND Old Navy is having 15% off on sale merchandise, so you can practically get them for pennies.
Here are a few other straight leg sweats that I’m loving:
These just look so cool and slouchy. Love the color options too. I used to have a similar pair and they were very comfortable….actually thinking back to how much I liked that pair makes me want to buy these.
Love the color of these, and they’re on sale too! Don’t they look kind of soft and romantic? (I’m really liking that lace top too) I happen to know that Aerie makes good loungewear, because I got one of my favorite, softest sweatshirts ever from there about a jillion years ago.
Another Old Navy pair, which means they’re crazy well-priced. I like the banded bottom on these and the pockets, which come in handy when I’m doing my laundry (need to bring my keys). Gosh, I have such a glamorous life.
