After two years and several months, we’re happy to report that sweatpants are still the star of the pant show. While we might not be lounging at home 24/7, as soon as we step inside our apartments, they are the main characters of any show we’re watching. If you can relate and love a good elastic waistband, we’ve rounded up the best sweatpants below.

The Classics
