I'm always on the hunt for trousers that embrace the comfort of sweatpants with the style and sophistication of trousers. Spoiler alert - I found them. I live in the South of America, and it's spring, so any clothing item with the word "sweat" in it is going on the back burner (with the exception being sweatshorts). Subsequently, these trousers have to be lightweight for warmer spring days. Per usual, H&M, which always seems to know what basics we need before we do, came to the rescue.
Among H&M's new arrivals, I spotted a pair of linen joggers that, like sweatpants, have an elastic waistband and an easy fit. They're also £25, come in seven neutral colours, a classic striped pair and two new stand out colours. (H&M also stocked them last summer.) I noticed that several colours are already starting to fly out of stock, so I fully expect that many people will be trading their sweatpants for linen pants.
Keep scrolling to see the popular trousers in every colour, as well as more H&M pieces to trade your sweatpants for this spring.
