The best black sweatpants for women are here to remind you that opting out of “real” pants is still a valid act of self-care—not to mention the coziest way to survive cold-weather temps. There may not be quite the same fervent desire for sweatpants as there was early in the pandemic, but cult-loved brands are still regularly sold out of favorite styles. Luckily, activewear staples like Outdoor Voices and Alo Yoga have replenished their sportswear stock with warm and fuzzy pieces that are perfect for the new year—or, at least, the first few months of fall.
And if you’re lucky enough to still be on the WFH grind, nap-ready fleece pants and cashmere joggers are easy to offset with chic blazers and bodysuits—which means you can stay comfy while your outfit appears intentional rather than sloppy. From low-key prints to classic sweatpants, the options are endless, so we narrowed down the 25 best sweatpants for women to shop online now.
