I had been eyeing up these wide-leg sweatpants at Athleta, but didn’t pull the trigger until I read the rave reviews from readers (thanks, guys). It took some doing to get the sizing right (turns out I’m NOT a petite in their pants), but I ended up pretty thrilled with the regular XS.

11 Comfy Outfit Ideas: Athleta Wide-Leg Sweatpants Do It All

These pants are also available in petite and tall sizes AND are made from sustainable TENCEL™. They’re soft, drapey, insanely comfortable, and, based on the fact that I’ve been wearing them almost everyday…pretty darn versatile, too.

Which is what I hope to demonstrate today. Vive la polyvalence*!!

*French forlong live versatility’, according to google translate.

Lastly, anything marked below with a double asterisk** means that it meets TME’s sustainability standards (you can read more about that, here).

1. Athleta Sweatpants + A Graphic Tee

I mean…per usual. Always my first move.

2. Athleta Sweatpants + A Cute, Boxy Top

I love this super-casual, effortless look. And this top is 100% linen and fabulous and also comes in white. It’s part of the Voloshin X TME collection that’s launching SOON. If you’d like to be the first to be shop, sign up for our newsletter, here.

3. Athleta Sweatpants + Stripes, Like A French Girl

All pants pretty much have to work with my St. James striped top…or their days are NUMBERED. I’ll admit that Real French Girls would likely not wear lounge pants out of the house (quelle horreur!) but, well, pandemic, so I’m going for GOOD ENOUGH. I finished the look with the world’s most comfortable ballet flats. NO JOKE.

4. Athleta Sweatpants + Stripes, Like It’s 1977

Similar to the above outfit, but not the same. And I will love this market bag until the day I die.

7. Athleta Sweatpants + For Working At Home When I DO Have A Zoom Call

This silk top is playful…but still professional enough. I sized up for a slouchier fit.

Oddly enough, this top looks less crazy/more work-friendly on Zoom…

8. Athleta Sweatpants + For Those Insanely Bright Tops That Do Good Things For My Skin But Go With Nothing In My Closet

I thought I hated this top — the color was almost shocking — but it’s literally the best-fitting sweatshirt I’ve ever worn, and I kiiiinda love what it does for my face. Then Pax told me I looked TWENTY-FOUR. HA! Sold! But in all seriousness, I’m craving color like never before. Clearly a sign of the apocalypse.

9. Athleta Sweatpants + 1 Of Those Drapey, Oversized Tops

Typically, when you say, ‘drapey, oversized tops’ I think Free People (like this one). But my all-time favorite drapey, oversized top is Voloshin’s Ella top. It’s long enough to wear with leggings (it’s longer in the back), but half-tucks like a dream, and is insanely soft. The sleeves can easily be rolled or not. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but this is the top that everyone steals out of my closet (and it’s also the top I take on almost every vacation). I have a few printed ones (all sold out), but it’s currently available in black, which will be my next purchase, plus a pretty olive green.

10. Athleta Sweatpants + A Comfy Wrap Cardigan

I call this look the ‘Luuuke…I am your father’ look. Obviously, in this scenario, I am Luke. (Actually, Pax, when he steals this cardigan for dress-up looks exactly like Luke Skywalker.) Anyway, I do love this aptly-described ‘desk cardigan’ from MM LaFleur. It’s been perfect for throwing on to run outside, and there’s something about pairing it with wide-leg pants (instead of joggers or leggings) that feels chic.

11. Athleta Sweatpants For #StayAtHome Date Night?

Admittedly, this one’s a stretch. I mean, it’s date night, S, for God’s sake put on some real pants! Actually, this is prob where Mike would request a skirt. Which isn’t happening. So….sweatpants it is!

I even tried to do cutesy little looks to make up for the slightly bizarre pairing of heels and sweatpants. Is it working?

So that’s it! The many ways I’ve been wearing these Athleta joggers. And as the weather warms, there will probably be more cropped swingy tank tops, too.

Hang in there, Gang.

xo,

  1. My apologies, I didn’t hear a word you said after Voloshing X TMW collection that’s launching soon.  I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am!  I bought the entire collection last year and was secretly hoping you would do it again this year.  Can you give us a date??? Loving the black top.

  2. Those darling Athleta pants are back ordered until July in tall. ( Thank goodness Athleta has tall, but everything is sold out) Have you seen any alternates?

  3. Can we talk more about your St. James striped top? I have been eyeballing them for a while but I am not sure if they are worth the price.

  4. I also bought the pants, and they are amazing. Like you, I tried them on with all the tops and they played well with all. I also got them on sale, so I feel especially good about them!

  5. Love all of these looks, but like Tina above, all I could focus on was a new Voloshin collaboration! Yay!!! I can’t wait to see what you guys have done this time around!
