Never in our wildest dreams (but also in our wildest dreams) did we imagine our Gwen Stefani would design our favorite fancy sweatpants. We've practically been living in these jogger pants from Design With Purpose, the edgy basics line that our ultimate '90s girl crush launched earlier this year with denim guru Michael Glasser. (Side note: true love does happen at sample sales; we scored these at the brand's blowout with Simone Camille and Janessa Leone last week.)
These slim and slouchy pants are made with uber-soft tencel blend fabric, allowing us to enjoy PJ-like comfort without looking like total slobs. Given that the next few weeks will likely be filled with family functions and holiday dinners, we're thrilled that the elastic waist and "ultra-flattering rear view" on these pants will help us avoid the mom jeans look during our anticipated food baby recovery. We plan on pairing these with sneakers for daytime errands and dressing them up with high heels for dinner-and-drinks sitches.
