The Most Comfortable Pants for Travel If You Don't Want to Wear Leggings

·3 min read

If you're anti-leggings or simply refuse to wear them outside of the house, we have all the pant alternatives that will offer just as much comfort to you while you're traveling as leggings claim to. On the flip side, if you were convinced leggings were the only pant option available to you for your upcoming travel outfits, we have got a treat for you. We have assembled a list of comfortable pant styles that will ensure you have the most stylish and cozy travel experience ever. In this case, you really can have your cake and eat it, too.

Including relaxed denim (don't knock it until you've tried it), knit and ribbed pants, and more, get ready to shop all of the most comfortable pants for traveling, according to me. As someone who has traveled in all of the below styles, I can personally attest to feeling comfortable and cute while on my journey, and now that traveling is a thing again, what more could you hope for from a pair of pants?

Relaxed Jeans

I know what you're thinking—jeans on an airplane seems like the worst idea known to man. Rigid, high-rise, skintight jeans certainly are not the move, but relaxed, slightly baggy pairs just might be your new go-to travel pants. They are roomy and comfortable and go with just about everything.

Frame Rosanna Organic High-Rise Wide-Leg Jeans ($240)

Agolde 90's Mid Rise Loose Fit Jeans ($198)

Re/Done 90s Comfy Jeans ($295)

Good American Good '90s Loose ($149)

Closed Nolin Wide Leg Jeans ($290)

Agolde Pieced Angled Jeans ($238)

Eloquii Wide Leg Jean ($100)

Ksubi Lo Key High-Rise Straight-Leg Jeans ($240)


This one is a no-brainer. Sweatpants have been the travel pant go-to since the beginning of time. They are cozy and look great with sneakers, and wearing them on the plane versus packing them in your suitcase frees up some more space in that likely overpacked luggage of yours.

H&M Wide-Leg Joggers ($18)

Agolde 90s Pintuck Sweatpants ($168)

Knit & Ribbed Pants

If you're one of those people who refuse to wear sweatpants outside of the house (no judgment), then maybe knit or ribbed pants are more your style. From textured cable knitting to sleek ribbing, these particular pants are the kind of travel choice that tells me you're a fashion girl without telling me you're a fashion girl.
