The Best Women’s Sweatpants For Travel

women's sweatpants for travel

Planning your next vacation? Whether your destination is expected to be cold or hot, you’ll need cozy basic clothing either way. From the airport to your hotel room, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to wear a sweatpants or legging set.

When people go away, the first thing that comes to mind is ‘fancy outfits’ or outfits that match the occasion and weather. We don’t blame you! The pieces we’re most excited about wearing are the ones we don’t typically wear day-to-day. Going skiing? Now you need snow pants and a jacket! Going to the Bahamas? Bring along a bathing suit and sarong. Going to a destination wedding? You’ll want to pack a dress and heels stat! But when we’re so focused on the main event, we forget about what we need most — which is the basic comfortable travel clothing worn in between!

One of our favorite versatile pieces is sweatpants. Typically seen as a garment worn for laid-back occasions, sweatpants can actually be worn at night. Fanc-ify your sweatpants by pairing them with a tight crop top and heels. Now you have an outfit that can be donned day and night. Less clothing in your suitcase means you’ll have more room to pack your essentials! Doubling up on outfits by mixing and matching is what sweatpants are all about. They can be the foundation of any outfit if you know how to wear them right.

Back2Basics sells the most comfortable and trendy sweatpants that you’ll live in on vacation and back home. Ahead, see why these sweatpants and joggers for travel are the only travel pants you’ll ever need.

Super Soft Rainbow Stitch Sweatpants

These sweatpants are one of our top picks for good reason! Described as ‘the most comfortable sweatpants you will ever own,” Aviator Nation’s rainbow sweatpants (which come in different colors, black or blue) are already broken in before they’re shipped. They’re brand new but have a vintage feel you’ll love. Fold it at the high rise waistband and at the ankles for a slimmer fit. Wear them as loungewear while you lounge in the airport and wear them for a long flight ahead of you. The elastic waist and stretchy material will keep you cozy while you’re sitting for hours on end. The last thing you want to do is wear jeans with a button or any other non-breathable pants. You’ll make your flight on time with these lounge pants because they glide as you go. Once you’re at your destination, you can change into vacation-wear and throw on your sweatpants for bed.

Thermal Drawstring Sweatpants

Sweatpants and all women’s bottoms deserve to have side pockets! Gone are the days when women’s sweatpants, skirts, and even leggings didn’t have any storage space. Women, just like men, need a place to put their phone, keys, or what-have-you without bringing a bag. Especially when you’re boarding a plane, you’ll want that extra space to grab something on the go. The wide leg bottoms make these Stateside sweats casual to throw over sneakers or fancy to throw over heels. With a relaxed fit and drawstring waistband, these pants will take you from plane to Paris nights in no time. They are seriously the best travel pants that will show off your tan on the way home.

Cargo Sweatpants

Sometimes you need sweatpants that aren’t meant for you to sit in a hotel room or long flight all day. These relaxed fit jogger sweatpants are perfect for a trip with fall weather. Wear them with grungy boots and a crop top t-shirt while folding the waistband for a fitted look. The french-terry fabric will keep you warm and the side pockets add a comfortable and practical element to these travel pants. They’re washable in machine wash cold.
