What’s the best part about coming home after a long day of work or school? Putting on your favorite pair of sweatpants and kicking your feet up on the couch.
To make this an even more exciting experience, you need the best pair of sweatpants that provide optimal looks and comfort. We’ve made the decision easy and gathered the nine best sweatpants out there right now.
In honor of the Jan. 21 holiday, the Canadian premium lifestyle brand released a limited edition collection of its beloved sweatpants in a new range of colors. Coming in eight new colorways for women’s and men’s silhouettes, these pants feature the Cooper Beaver logo and are designed with their usual soft, durable fleece. The collection is a result of Roots’ exploration of color theory with the intention for each new hue to be calming, stimulate creativity and help boost your true self. Stuck on which color to go for? Take their handy quiz to find the perfect shade.
This comfy jogger style sweatpant will have you refusing to put jeans on ever again. Each pair is made of cotton, polyester, and elastane and hits precisely at the waist. Better yet, you can perfect your look with the Waffle Henley bra, hoodie, and long sleeve crop top. They are available in multiple shades including camel, cream, talc, garnet, and dark chocolate.
These recycled cotton track pants are not only remarkably cozy, but good for the environment as well. Coming in a variety of vibrant and simple colors, this sweatpant is a must for your closet. They are created with an organic cotton blend that is responsibly sourced and of excellent quality.
There's a good reason this Los Angeles-based brand is on this list. Just take a look at all their items that are sold out. Before it’s too late, you’ll want to grab a pair of their Cherry Flavor Sweatpants for a truly excellent garment that’s just snug enough around the waist with an adjustable drawstring. It comes in a number of colors and features the brand name on the side of the leg in a delicate cursive font.
Often when we wear sweats, a good part of the reason is softness. Releasing ourselves from the trapping of denims means going all in on gentle material and you really can’t beat out a pair of pants made from cashmere. Joie certifies their elevated approach to loungewear with this cuffed jogger that’s appropriate for an evening on the couch or a night on the town.

These joggers have a bit more of a structured fit making them the perfect sweatpants for a day of errands. For chic meets comfy-casual, Anine Bing has you covered with their Evan Jogger. Opt for the black or heather gray options for a sleek athletic look, but we recommend trying to get your hands on the taupe velour version. The rich, velvety texture is absolutely divine.
One reason we love these is the pockets! There aren’t just two, but three! Perhaps more importantly, however, is that Mad Happy’s heavyweight, cozy-fit pants are made of combed cotton fabric. In other words, these are super soft and super high quality. Color options include navy, berry and tofu.
You know that if a company has a trademarked “supersoft” fabric, you can’t go wrong with a purchase of a pair of their sweatpants. Elevate you leisurewear with a pair of Monrow’s Plush Sweater Pants for a look that is as cool as a pair of ‘70s high-waisted bell bottoms, but without sacrificing any of the comfort. Choose from coco, chalk or orchid colorways.
Los Angeles is the undisputed capital of athleisure, so when you have to L.A. brands come together on a pair of sweatpants, you know are guaranteed a solid purchase. These bestseller, relaxed sweatpants come in a neutral color that allows you to pair them with a variety of tops, but live up to a special reputation with its unique Jacquie Aiche graphic embellishments.
