If you look around, you’ll see puddle pants have taken over. Celebrities, influencers, and even the British royal family are wearing floor-grazing trousers and jeans. But thus far, we haven’t really seen a pair that can rival the comfort and ease of a pair of leggings. Don’t get me wrong. I love a tailored moment just as much as the next fashion person. But sometimes, when you just want to run out the door to pick up an essential—or even better, go on a “hot girl walk”—a comfy pair of leggings is unmatched. Or so I thought.

Now, finding a pair just like hers—which she wore with a cropped turtleneck, a fleece zip-up, and off-white On x Loewe sneakers—is all I can think about. But after a little digging and a lot of online shopping, I’m confident that I found plenty of worthy options. Shop them all below.
