Best For Lounging: Lululemon Align Pant II
Fair warning: you’re going to want to live in the Align Pant II ($98). It is so buttery soft, you’ll feel like you’re not wearing anything — which, in fact, is the purpose of the fabric it’s made of, Nulu. This is definitely a yoga pant, but it’s also an errands pant, a brunch pant, or really just an anytime pant. These leggings come in 25, 28, and 31 inch lengths, so there’s something for everyone. They, like almost all Lululemon pants, are high rise; mine come up just past my belly button. I’ve had mine for years at this point, and they feel just as soft and comfortable as the day I bought them.
