I stumbled on these Fluid Cupro Joggers about a year and a half ago when a friend — who described Lou & Grey to me as “millennial Eileen Fisher with an accompanying price point” — got a pair post-pregnancy and suggested them to me soon after I had my own baby. (This was during a period when I refused to wear any pants with a button and fly.) You hear a lot about work pants that feel like sweatpants — but these work pants actually feel like wearing nothing at all (in a nonfreezing way). Of course sweatpants are comfortable, but these satiny joggers made from cupro (which appears to be a cousin of tencel) are airier, breathable, and just so soft — and I think really do look office-appropriate when paired with a ballet flat. These days, I wear them pretty much every workday as a way to feel ever so slightly presentable were a Zoom call to ever to catch me below the waist, and so I can feel a little more “together” as I click away on the couch. They machine wash and dry like a charm, and hit at the ankle in a pleasing way so as to look pretty great with these “grass green” Crocs I just bought.
