It’s rare when an article of clothing comes into our lives and can earn “essential” status. The LBD, a denim jacket, a good pair of tights: they all top the list of items that have earned the rank of classics thanks to their ability to do-it-all. For a new item to join that lineup, it needs to be versatile for a number of activities, suit a number of different styles, and be classic enough to withstand the test of time. Enter: the Athleta Endless Pant ($109).
From first glance, the sleek tailored pants may seem like your run-of-the-mill work pant, but we assure you that it’s anything but. The semi-fitted pant is the perfect blend of comfort and construction that makes it a go-to for all your favorite (or just necessary) activities in life.
A commuter’s dream
The Endless Pant maintains a professional vibe that’s perfect for work life and commuting. Its straight construction fits slim through the leg then eases up below the knee to maintain mobility and comfort. Additionally, the wrinkle-resistant PrimaStretch fabric makes sure this pant stays refined but stretchy — something that’s essential for bouncing between the office and home, school and the train, or wherever else life takes you.
What’s more, the Endless Pant’s PowerVita waistband sits naturally on the hips and provides support and flexibility for the all-day, everyday wear that’s essential for commuters and those on the go.
The traveler’s perfect pair
What also makes the Endless Pant an overtime hero is it’s easy packability, making it the traveler’s best friend. Not only is it carry-on and packing friendly (it’s wrinkle resistant!), but it’s also ready to take on a day of exploring. Sure, it’s made from breathable recycled polyester and spandex, but it goes beyond that. The fabric is actually sweat-wicking to help move any steaminess to the surface of the fabric to allow for better evaporation. And, should this pant actually get wet from a full day of hiking, dining, and adventuring, the Endless Pant is quick-drying. This means it’s a reliable option for those who like to travel light and go from a morning hike to an afternoon happy hour without making a pit stop for a wardrobe change.
A classic design
A pant that can take on a hiking trip and a trip to the office? It’s pretty clear that these pants have nailed the versatility category. But what solidified the Endless Pant as worthy of “essential” status to us is the timeless, minimal design.
The straight leg design offers a semi-fitted wear that’s flattering on a number of body types and can be worn in a number of different settings, in just about any season. Pair it with a button up for a more business-appropriate look, a hoodie and a pair of sneakers for post-workout recovery style, or with a slouchy sweater and heels for a dinner date. Plus, it comes in a series of four colors that range from your classic black and grey to your lighter cream and mauve.
Needless to say, it’s clear why the Endless Pant has earned its keep in our closets.
