Since holiday travel is annoying enough as it is, you can at least make it a little better by dressing up in a comfortable outfit that doesn’t add to the excruciating experience that long and overbooked flights can be.
We, of course, are not suggesting you wear your favorite pair of sweatpants to the airport. Instead, opt for a more stylish option and go for chic stretchy pants. Trust us, a little spandex can go a long way when it comes to functional travel attire.
And there are options to match every preference and personal style. The wide-leg silhouette is definitely having a moment and brands like Express and J Brand are offering slip-on styles in soft stretchy velvet.
There are also plenty of classic cuts, from straight-leg capri pants, skinny stretch pants, leggings, and even Corduroy trousers. With detailing such as elasticized waist and front pleats, some of these pants will definitely provide you with more comfort than your regular pair of jeans.
Here, we've rounded up 17 pairs that any traveler will want in their closet this holiday season.
