When it comes to jet-setting in style, cozy is key — and that’s especially true when you’re looking for the best pants for traveling. Gone are the days of skinny jeans and other circulation-cutting bottoms — at least for now. Until jeggings come back around (let’s hope it’s more than a few trend cycles away), we’re enjoying the extra leg room that loose and comfortable bottoms have to offer, especially for travel.
Whether you’re planning a road trip or hopping on a plane, we’ve rounded up the best pants to wear while weaving through terminals or driving long stretches. From slacks and sweats to cargos and everything in between, some of our travel-friendly favorites include Frankie Shop (seen on J Lo), Ugg’s Selena Gomez-loved silhouette (yes, they also make pants!), and Hailey Bieber‘s Wardrobe.NYC collaboration.
1. Aviator Nation Bolt Sweatpants
The ultimate airport bottom is the sweatpants. Hayden Panettiere, the actress, was seen at the airport in these Aviator Nation Bolt sweats. However, a similar version from the laid-back brand is also available. These sweats have an interior drawstring tie closure, cinched sleeves and a lightning bolt print.
