These Pants Are Versatile and Stylish — but They Feel Like Sweats (Video)
These days, being comfortable in loungewear doesn't mean you have to wear a full-on sweatsuit. In fact, athleisure brands are making more versatile, comfortable options than ever, including pants that feel like sweats but look polished enough to wear to work.
The Brooklyn Ankle Pant from Athleta provides the comfort of sweats while maintaining the sleek look of your standard work pant.

The pants, which are available in five neutral colors, are semi-fitted, mid-rise, and feature a tapered leg for a versatile fit. A rib knit waistband and side panels provide stretch and mobility for an undeniably comfortable feel. Plus, there are two easily accessible front pockets and two zippered back pockets.
They're made with Athleta's Featherweight Stretch fabric, a lightweight, silky-feeling material made from recycled polyester. Thanks to the unique material, the pants are both breathable and wrinkle-resistant, making them comfortable and easy to wear, whether you're out and about or lounging on your couch. They're also machine-washable and quick-drying. An added bonus, these pants are rated UPF 50+, which means they offer UV protection.
Shoppers love these pants for everything from work to travel to lounging. "These are the most amazing pants! They don’t wrinkle and are incredibly comfortable," one reviewer wrote.
Another shopper emphasized just how versatile the Brooklyn Ankle Pant is. "These are great for traveling, they can be dressed up for work, [and] they are lightweight but durable enough for hiking."
