Our lives have changed enormously over the past year and a bit. They had to. And as we begin to see the end of the pandemic in sight, it's time to take a look at where we are. One thing's for sure, we've started wearing sweatpants a lot and that's not a habit we're willing to give up just yet. We will, however, be opting for straight-leg track pants as we ease back into public life.
With cuffs out of the equation, track pants take on a new life. Styling straight-leg track pants with your everyday gear looks way better. It takes things up a notch and, let's be honest, no grown man should be bound by the elasticated ankle. Styling the latter can verge on a lazy, I-just-got-out-of-bed-and-this-was-the-first-thing-I-found aesthetic.
With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the best straight-leg track pants that the internet has to offer.
