I work from home and more often than not, I’m wearing athletic wear. And I’m not unique in this right. There’s a stigma attached to wearing sweatpants or pajamas that simply doesn’t come with wearing leggings, a sports bra and running shoes. Why? People usually assume you have worked out or are on your way to working out. Sweatpants on the other hand leave people of the assumption that you’re sick, tired or some other word that seems to translate to “unmotivated.”

That’s a big cross to bear, especially if you’re just trying to relax. So, if you, like me, default to wearing athletic wear any time you don’t actually feel like crafting an outfit, this is a list for you. Prioritizing comfort when it comes to your life on the go, you can’t go wrong with any of these incredible items—or you could buy them all and have your new favorite day-off outfit.

Why We Picked It: What makes one t-shirt different from another? They’re cut with a scoop, crew or v-neck and they have sleeves. That’s it, right? Usually, yes, but when it comes to this On Running Comfort T, you’re not just putting on a t-shirt. Crafted from a luxurious blend of cotton, modal and elastane woven together for maximum breathability and comfort that also eliminates odors that come with running around.
