I’ve been blogging for what feels like a million years, and in that time I’ve seen hundreds of online stores come and go. While I’m always excited to try a new shop, I’ve also been burned more than a few times by stores that didn’t deliver what they promised.

Based on this, I’m pretty skeptical of any online store I’ve never shopped at before. Chicwish was one of those.

When Chicwish contacted me and asked for a fully honest review of their products, I was excited to test them out. I’ve seen their pieces all over Instagram and have always been curious, but never pulled the trigger.

For review purposes, Chicwish gave me store credit to purchase a variety of items to test out. Below, I’m sharing the good, the bad, and the “oops, I should have paid better attention to the product photos.”

Read on for my honest Chicwish review for 2022! (For sizing reference, I’m 5’6″ and usually wear a size 4/6.)

Chicwish Haul & Honest Review (2022)

Cotton Long Sleeve White Crop Top

Honest Chicwish review 2022: Wearing Chicwish cotton long sleeve white crop top
(Wearing size S)

I have wanted one of these crop tops for over a year now, so I was excited to see that Chicwish had a version.

I was worried that this top would be super see-through but I was pleasantly surprised! It was the tiniest bit sheer if you were really looking, but overall I felt completely confident in this top. And I love that it’s 100% cotton.

Also, the shirt is super comfortable as the bra detailing is stitched on — no underwire here. It’s really cute and I’m going to wear this all the time.

Double Breasted Green Blazer

(Wearing size M)

I can’t believe I’ve made it this far into 2022 without buying anything in the *Bottega green* shade that everyone’s been wearing. I’ve been obsessed with Hailey Bieber’s green blazer for, um, a year now, so I had to try Chicwish’s version.

This blazer was a winner. The cut is beautiful, the fabric feels expensive, and it’s a little bit slouchy but still structured enough to be flattering. I paired this with cutoffs and a crop top to channel my inner Hailey but I’d also wear this with wide-leg trousers and a bodysuit or even over a mini dress for a night out.

The only thing I didn’t love about this blazer is that the sleeves could have been a tiny bit longer. I have long arms proportional to my height so jacket sleeves are always too short for me. These were about an inch shorter than I’d have liked. (To be fair, Chicwish does give the measurements of their pieces on their site, so I knew this one was a risk.)

If you have normal-length arms, this jacket would be fine, but I thought I’d mention it for my fellow long-armed women.

Green Tweed Blazer

Chiciwish review 2022 – wearing green tweed oversized blazer with cutoff shorts and white crop top
(Wearing size M)

This tweed oversized blazer was a little bit out of my comfort zone as I don’t consider my style preppy at all. But it was such a pleasant surprise and a total stunner! I’m so glad I ordered this one. It’s my favorite piece I got from this haul.

This blazer looks SO much more expensive than it is. It has thick shoulder pads for structure and the perfect long-line cut with sleeves that are more than long enough — yes! It nips in slightly at the waist and is all-around perfection — such an incredible value for the price.

I wanted the matching skirt for this but it was sold out when I placed my order. This would be so cute as a two-piece set so if you see the skirt in stock in your size, don’t miss it!

Zippered Pocket Joggers

Wearing Chicwish white joggers in size S
(Wearing size S)

I began living in loungewear back in 2020, and to be fully honest, I haven’t stopped just because it’s 2022. I feel like a jogger connoisseur at this point and I’ve tried all the high-end brands (and tons of cheap joggers from fast fashion stores, too).

Based on the low price of these white joggers, I had low expectations.. but these sweats really surprised me!

The material is thick and slightly structured, but still super comfortable. And the zippered pockets make these feel well-made. I love the cut as well — they’re not too short and perfectly high-waisted, so they look great with even the shortest crop tops.

These are worth the price and I’d buy them again in a heartbeat.

Lilac Three-Button Blazer

Lilac blazer from Chicwish paired with white joggers and white crop top
(Wearing size M)

I’ve been gravitating towards everything purple in 2022, so I was psyched to add this lilac blazer to my wardrobe.

While I love the color and the oversized fit of this blazer, I didn’t love the shape of it. It felt like it kind of hung there instead of fitting the way a good blazer should. It was unstructured and overly casual, just meh all around. Also, the sleeves on this one were way too short — a full two inches.

Weirdly, the measurements on this one were off. The website said the sleeves on this were longer than the ones on my solid green blazer, but the opposite was true. Not sure what happened but this blazer was a miss.

This is in stark contrast to the previous two blazers I tried, so just keep in mind that fit can vary a lot at the same price point and size!

Mesh Spliced Double-Breasted Trench

(Wearing size M)

I’ve been on the hunt for a high-quality trench coat for ages now. Burberry is not in my budget but I love the look of a classic trench, so when I saw this one, I had to test it out.

I was floored at the quality of this piece. It’s thick, weighty, and the PERFECT color. It’s extremely well-made and looks 10x more expensive than it is.

The only problem is that there’s a layer of pleated mesh across the back of the coat (see photo below). And despite the word “mesh” featuring very prominently in the product name, I somehow missed this detail when I placed my order.

While this back detail would be super cute for someone with a girly sense of style, it’s way too frou-frou for my vibe. Honestly, I’m considering cutting the mesh off because the trench is THAT AMAZING and perfect in every other way! I’m still amazed at the quality of this piece — it should cost at least twice as much as it does.

Also, for sizing purposes, I got a size M in this but I could have easily sized it down to a S; this coat runs on the roomy side.

TL;DR: Don’t be like me; read the product descriptions closely before ordering. Or buy this trench if your style is girly, it’s adorable!

Fluffy Knit Cropped Tank and Pants Set

Chicwish review 2022: Chicwish fluffy knit cropped pants and tank set vs skims robe
Left: Celebrity brand, Right: Chicwish

A few seasons ago, a famous celebrity-owned shapewear brand released a collection of soft and fuzzy lounge clothes that took social media by storm. This Chicwish crop top and pants set is an amazing affordable dupe for that line.

I own the robe from said celebrity brand, so I put the pieces side by side to see how they compared. (Photo above — note that my robe has been washed and dried while the Chicwish pieces have not, which is why my robe is more textured.)

While the name-brand version is a little bit thicker than the Chicwish version, the fabric is extremely close. Honestly, no one would ever be able to guess these pants and top weren’t the real thing!

Sizing-wise, the pants were a little tighter than I wanted them to be, so I’d recommend sizing up in this set. (I got a S.) Luckily, there’s a lot of stretch in this fabric, so they’re still comfortable, just not as loose and lounge-y as I wanted.

My Overall Chicwish Review 2022

After trying their pieces, here are my full honest thoughts on Chicwish in 2022.

  • Chicwish is a legit site. The pieces you get are the ones shown in the photos, and while shipping takes a little longer than most US sites, it’s honestly not too bad. (Everything arrived in less than two weeks for me.)
  • Their quality is better than I expected. I thought Chicwish was just another cheap fast-fashion site, but I was wrong. Everything I ordered is good quality and these pieces don’t feel like they’ll fall apart after 1-2 wears.
  • If you have long arms, you might have trouble with the jackets. 3/4 of the jackets I tried were fine, but the lavender blazer is honestly unwearable unless I roll the sleeves up. Pay close attention to the measurements on the sleeves! They run short.
  • Don’t sleep on their trench coats! The trench I got was 10/10 in quality. I would easily pay twice as much for this piece; it’s amazing.
  • If something looks like a dupe, it probably is. I was so impressed with the quality of the cozy pieces I ordered. They’re virtually indistinguishable from the celebrity brand, for a fraction of the price. Their dupe game is on point!
  • If you have a feminine, girly sense of style, this is the place to shop. Chicwish has an amazing selection of ultra-feminine skirts, dresses, and blouses. These aren’t really my vibe so I didn’t order them, but if that’s your style, do yourself a favor and check out Chicwish! You’ll absolutely love what they have in stock.

Loungewear is having its moment right now and men’s sweatpants are flying off shelves around the world. Gone are the days when sweats are confined to the couch, gym, and sporadic errand running. The best sweatpants for men are everywhere now, from the (home) office to the pub and beyond. 

It may sound silly to hunt down the best sweatpants for men, especially if you’re still wearing that team-issued pair from the early 2000s. But doesn’t that make the case for sweats even more compelling? The most comfortable closet staple is getting an upgrade and we’re here to break down the very best men’s sweatpants on the market today that look a hell of a lot better than the hole-ridden pair you’re wearing right now. 

On top of the traditional baggy fits, this year’s sweats feature straight legs or slim silhouettes, allowing guys to dress them up to hit the town or keep things cozy close to home. Versatility is the name of the game and man, are we here for it.

Whether you’re looking to upgrade your loungewear selection, or simply on the hunt for the next pair in a growing collection, keep reading for the best men’s sweatpants to carry you from the couch to the outside world, no change of outfit needed.

Plus, these pants are super practical with huge front pockets, a back patch pocket, and a drawstring to get a snug fit every time. 

Designed with a regular tapered fit that’s roomy around the seat and tight around the ankles makes these pants easy to dress up or down. For casual days around the crib, they look perfect with a t-shirt or hoodie. Wearing them out? Pair these organic cotton fleece pants with a leather jacket and a pair of Timberlands for an edgy, polished look.

These fleece sweats are simple but do the trick with two side pockets, an internal drawcord, and six neutral color options.

The relaxed fit and open hems make them easy to wear around the house or out on the town, paired with a crisp white t-shirt and a pair of sneakers. The faux fly gives them a slightly dressier look than a pair of lounge pants, and the organic cotton construction guarantees softness no matter how many times they go through the wash. 

Material: Organic cotton | Color Options: 2 | Fit: Relaxed | Care: Machine wash | Size Range: XS – XL

Arguably some of the most luxurious men’s sweatpants in the world, this pure cashmere pair by Luca Faloni screams “only the best”. They are made in Italy, after all. With six neutral colorways and a slim tapered fit, these men’s sweatpants can be worn anywhere with style and the ultimate comfort.

Like all good sweats, these pants have two slide pockets and a drawstring waist, giving much-needed relief after a big meal or a few hours on the couch. Wear them with plain t-shirts, an oxford, or your coziest sweater, finished with anything from sneakers to Chelsea boots, or slippers if you prefer.

Heavyweight and sturdy, these men’s sweatpants from CDLP are ideal for year-round wear. Rather than feeling every gust of wind cut through your pants, these are sure to keep you cozy without sacrificing breathability, thanks to the loopback knit and organic cotton blend. This also ensures they retain their shape without losing softness, wash after wash. 

These sweats feature a classic fit, though if you choose to size down, you’ll have a more tailored look thanks to the taper going into the ankles. They’re durable, high quality, and full of subtle details, like the back patch pocket and embroidered logo on the front leg. 

Material: 50% recycled cotton, 50% organic cotton | Color Options: 3 | Fit: Relaxed | Care: Machine wash | Size Range: XS – XXL 

Looking for a pair of where-anywhere sweats?

Since these pants are on the fitted side with a taper and elastic ankle cuffs, they won’t look sloppy if you wear them out and about. Match them with a pressed white t-shirt, dark-colored hoodie, or even a denim jacket for colder days. When it comes to footwear, you’ll have an easy time wearing these men’s sweatpants with sneakers, boots, and even sandals.

If you’ve ever considered wearing men’s sweatpants for smart casual… Don’t. 

Unless they’re the Coburn pants from A Day’s March. These sleek trousers will fool anyone into thinking you’re dressed up, when in fact, you’re in lounge pants. The open hem at the ankles goes a long way into making these pants look like they’re tailored, and the drawstring at the waist is totally in right now. 

To wear these clean-cut sweats the best, pair them with a tucked-in, heavyweight t-shirt with an unstructured blazer on top. For a more pared-back look, swap the blazer for a quarter zip or knit sweater, and seal the deal with a pair of white leather sneakers. 

Material: 100% organic cotton | Color Options: 3 | Fit: | Care: Machine wash | Size Range: S – XL

Outdoor Voices is disrupting the sportswear industry with its high-quality, affordable clothing that can be taken from the couch to the gym with no effort at all.

They have polyester for softness and spandex for a bit of stretch, making this one pair of pants you’ll never want to take off.

Thanks to the flattering tapered fit, these men’s sweatpants can be casual or smart. Pair them with a solid-colored t-shirt and a pair of New Balance dad shoes, or dress them up with a bomber or denim jacket when you’re headed out for a drink. With six different colors, no one will judge you for getting a pair in each.

The devil’s in the details with these bad boys, as they feature invisible zipper pockets, articulated knees, elastic waist, and zippered back pocket. Finished with bonded cuffs and a signature 3D printed logo, these pants will have you longing for the ‘90s.

These pants are tailored for a modern fit, allowing you to look your best wherever life takes. Plus, they can withstand a beating thanks to the abrasion-resistant material, four-way stretch, and moisture-wicking properties. 

They have all that good sweatpants should, like an elastic waistband, drawcord, and ankle cuffs, but the main selling point is coveted zippers on each of the three pockets, a true rarity in the world of men’s sweatpants. Wear these pants with any of your other athletic gear, or dress them up with a crisp oxford shirt, a quarter zip sweater, and a pair of Chelsea boots.

Material: 91% recycled polyester, 9% elastane | Color Options: 6 | Fit: Regular tapered | Care: Machine wash cold | Size Range: XS – XXL

Ideal for year-round wear and with more color options than any other pants on this list, the Todd Snyder x Champion sweatpant collaboration is one of the best in recent years. The crossover of our dreams, Champion brings the signature sporty look, while Todd Snyder ensures a timeless garment. 

Rather than Champion’s traditional reverse weave construction, these pants are made from 100% cotton French terry for a smart, yet breathable look. They’re medium weight, which means they’ll keep you warm in the winter yet cool in the summer, and have all of the details necessary in a favorite pair of sweats.

Outfitted with slash pockets, a cotton drawstring, and a ribbed waistband and ankle cuffs, these pants don’t leave you wanting for much. The fit is a flattering slim taper, though does run small so consider sizing up for a more relaxed look. Wear these pants with an unstructured blazer or a simple cotton crewneck. No matter what you choose, these will be your saving grace for years to come. 

Material: 100% cotton French terry | Color Options: 11 | Fit: Slim tapered | Care: Machine wash | Size Range: XS – XXL

As far as details go, these pants stay on top with a loopback cotton jersey construction, faux fly, back patch pocket, and adjustable drawstring. This is designer clothing made practical, and a wardrobe staple you’ll be reaching for years to come.

What to Look For in Men’s Sweatpants

When it comes to the best men’s sweatpants, these are the key considerations to keep in mind. 

Fabric 

Fabric is arguably the most important consideration when it comes to choosing the best pair of sweatpants for men. For a classic sweatpant feel, you can never go wrong with cotton, which is super soft and can withstand countless runs through a washing machine. 

These days, tons of brands are opting for a cotton French terry construction, while others stick to standard jersey or fleece for added warmth. If you’re after a pair of hybrid men’s sweatpants that you can work out and lounge in, a polyester blend is a safe bet, especially one that incorporates spandex or elastane for that little bit of stretch.

Warmth

You’ll also want to think about the weight of the sweatpants as this is the main factor contributing to warmth. Because let’s be honest, there’s no worse feeling than wind whipping through a pair of tattered trousers. 

Thin cotton or linen men’s sweatpants may only be suitable for summer or house wear, while a thicker pair of fleece sweats are best confined to winter months. Polyester and dri-fit fabrics work year round as they have a decent degree of warmth, but they’re often unlined which means they don’t hold up super well against the elements. When it comes to a pair of sweats you can wear 365 days a year, French terry or cotton jersey are your safest bets. 

Details

The last thing to keep in mind when it comes to the best sweatpants for men are any extra details. At the very minimum, a good pair of men’s sweatpants should have two side slant pockets, an elastic waist, and a drawstring. 

Soe brands go above and beyond and incorporate elements like a back patch pocket, a faux fly, and a tapered design for a more tailored fit. If you plan on wearing your sweats out and about, it pays to keep an eye out for extra details that make the sweats look more like standard-issue trousers. 

FAQ

    • How to style men’s sweatpants is surprisingly easy. For a casual look, pair sweats with a solid colored t-shirt, a hoodie or crewneck, and a pair of white sneakers. If you want to dress up your look, incorporate a button up oxford, bomber jacket, or even an unstructured blazer with a pair of leather Chelsea boots for a polished ‘fit.

      • If you’re debating sizes when it comes to men’s sweatpants, the safest bet is to stick true to size and match your sweats to your underwear size. That said, tapered sweatpants tend to have a tighter fit, so you may want to consider sizing up. 

        On the other hand, relaxed sweats tend to look baggy, so you might think about sizing down for a more tailored fit. When all else fails, consult the brand’s sizing chart and you’ll be good to go. 

        • How tight men’s sweatpants should be depends on the design. Traditional sweatpants are generally loose all the way from the seat to the ankles, unless there are elastic cuffs for a tapered finish. 

          Slim fitting tapered sweatpants should be slightly looser in the seat while getting progressively tighter around the legs and ankles. The tightness of men’s sweatpants is up to personal preference but should be kept in mind when deciding on the style and size before purchasing.
