This year I’ve missed my friends, restaurants, and haircuts, however, I won’t entirely miss wearing sweats all the time, but I’ve decided I need to prepare for that inevitability. I think I do my best work in sweatpants: there’s no shifting around to avoid weird bunching and pinching and just think of the time saved, not needing to iron anything, ever. I think this is what I’ll miss most of all heading back into the office: the freedom of an elastic waistband. But I’m no longer worried because I just found the perfect wardrobe piece to help me make the transition back to business casual, the Lululemon’s Keep Moving Pant.
My favorite part of athleisure is that it feels freeing and unrestricted. Unlike jeans or slacks, sweatshirts and yoga pants don’t cause friction or resistance (and therefore, no chafing either). Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pair of jeans or twill pants, but there’s a time and place for everything, and some workdays call for a more congenial trouser option.
The Keep Moving Pant begins with the sweatpants staple of an elastic drawstring waistband but tapers down the leg smoothly to an open ⅞ ankle crop with no sporty detailing that you might find in other athletic joggers. They come in ten colors running from dark muted green and blue to lighter khaki and grey tones that would match a spring outfit, and of course, black. Some of my other favorite aspects of Keep Moving Pant are the soft Nulu fabric inner waistband and hidden zipper pockets that are big enough for your keys and credit card.
