Like many, I became enraptured with sweatpants and joggers during the post-2020 activewear boom. When I moved to a ski town with below-freezing temperatures (currently “feels like negative five degrees.”) Still, most of my sweatpants looked and felt like baggy, worn fleeces until I met the Vuori Boyfriend Joggers, and the tank which complemented them.
Athleticwear brand Vuori knew what it was doing when it offered to let me experience its signature smoothing performance fabric. I chose the Palo Santo color, a shockingly attractive burnt orange just neutral enough to blend into most occasions.

I’d long been familiar with Vuori as a brand, largely within the men’s category; my dad swore by its Sunday Performance Short and similar for golfing and exercise, comfortable enough for eighteen holes but sleek enough to wear for a surprise video conference. When I first ran my hand over the fabric of my new sweatpants, I suddenly understood why: It’s silky smooth and luxurious feeling, more like pajamas than a sweatsuit, although it has enough visual structure to look like daytime wear.
The DreamKnit fabric is made from the brand’s signature brushed jersey fabric, containing 89 percent recycled materials. The Boyfriend Joggers themselves also have two side pockets and a mid rise elastic waist, coming in six colors: burnt orange, heather gray, black, dark teal, a cool blue gray, and a creamy gray.
First, I started wearing them around the house. One night, I fell asleep in them, kickstarting a habit. I exercised in them, completing a virtual dance fitness workout. The set quickly became what I lived in for any and all activities, complementing my layers when I bundled up to head outside into the snow.
Vuori Halo Performance Crop Top
To buy: $58; vuori.com.
The accompanying Halo Performance Crop tank—available for purchase separately—was made of the same dreamy material. Most importantly, it’s the most flattering tank bra I’ve ever worn. Something about the way the fabric lays against my chest and shoulders accentuates my muscle and smooths in all the right places. Embarrassingly enough, I’d catch myself admiring the shape of it in the mirror, and it feels like a sneaky secret weapon for when I want to look good without looking dressed up.
Fundamentally though, I’m weak for fabric that feels like an indulgence. Sweat-wicking, cooling, and comfortable enough for exercise, but stylish enough for versatile wear, this best-of-both-worlds pair of joggers is my new favorite. While my chosen color and style is full price, Vuori’s slashed prices across joggers and tanks in the same fabric up to 30 percent off, making me severely tempted to start adding more to my cart. Go for Vuori and you’ll never go back.
