The Best Loose Pants for Women 2021

Let’s be honest, after a year of working from home, schooling from home, and basically-everything-else-ing

Let’s be honest, after a year of working from home, schooling from home, and basically-everything-else-ing from home, the idea of trading in our stretchy pants for tailored trousers and less forgiving fabrics seems a wee bit intimidating. Still, with things slowly beginning to open back up and more of us getting vaccinated, we have to face the facts that our days of wearing exclusively leggings and sweatpants may be numbered. Don’t despair, though. While we may have to (and dare we say, even want to) start dressing like real people again, that doesn’t mean that we have to completely abandon comfort—after all, one of the great fashion lessons of 2020 is that time is too precious to wear uncomfortable clothes. The solution? Loose pants.

Whether you’re updating your work from home wardrobe with a skosh more professionalism, looking for something cozy to head out for your weekend walks in, or seeking a transitional garment to get you back into the “real trousers” groove, here are the loose-fitting pants you’ll want to add to your wardrobe ASAP.
