Watch your back, jeans: we've found the most versatile sweatpants style ever. Click through to see our go-to pair and five easy ways to wear it.
Between 9 and 5
Unless your office dress code is pantsuit-strict, it's surprising easy to pull off sweats at work. Color and fit are key: a dark, tapered pair looks like dress trousers with the right blazer and heels.
During Cocktail Hour
Whether you're drinking with your best buddies or pre-gaming before a date, bars call for effortlessly sexy outfits. Get the look right by tempering snuggly loungewear with lots of black leather. 
For a Casual Brunch
Heels aren't the only way to polish up sweatpants; when the occasion calls for comfortable footwear, make the look more special with an embellished top and a colorful hat.
While Running Errands
To avoid the classic "I never got dressed this morning" errand-running sweatpant look, pepper your ensemble with lots of print and texture. Then use one vivid shoe or handbag to pull the outfit together.
At a Dinner Party
Because knit-on-knit seems too much like bedclothes—even for a laid-back dinner with friends—you've got to break the look up with a long button-front shirt. Quieter accessories, like dainty rose gold earrings and d'Orsay flats, add even more polish.
