If you’re starting to get a little tired of wearing sweats, but a pair of button-fly Levi’s still sounds … rigid, we have good news: We found a pair of pants from Madewell that have the cozy elastic waist and loose leg of your favorite sweatpants, crossed with a structured leg (in a pulled-together-looking indigo wash). They’re the kind of thing that’s perfect for wearing on days you want to feel more dressed (while still not fully committing to a full button-fly situation) and also have the breezy look of an ideal pair of slightly cropped spring pants. Better yet, they’re more than half off, bringing the price down to a very affordable $36.
