Pants are complicated — or, rather, the relationship we have with pants has become complicated, as a result of months spent toiling away the days at home and rethinking our wardrobes. At a certain point, it felt like the idea of reaching for anything with tailored seams and a waistband would never cross our minds again. However, there are only so many leggings one can wear in a lifetime, and despite our on-again, off-again relationship with pants, you have to admit that there's nothing quite like the feeling of pulling on the perfect pair.

If you're looking for the right pair of pants to rekindle your romance with pants as a concept, look no further than M.M. LaFleur's Foster Pants, a machine-washable pair in a cigarette silhouette, made with a thick blend of Italian cotton that's designed to move with you. Available in 10 wrinkle-resistant colors (five of which are on sale right now), The Foster offers the perfect middle ground between structure and stretch. They pull on like leggings (there's no button fly and a zipper on the side), but have a precise, tailored look, and they stay that way no matter how many times you wash them. They also have adjustable hems which allow you to change up the length and wear them cropped or full-length. The amount of different looks you can create with them is virtually endless, too: Pair them with a blazer, and you've got yourself a suit. Throw an oversized T-shirt over them, and you've got a relaxed, casual outfit that will still look good if you have to leave your house. 

With that level of versatility and comfort, it's no surprise that the brand has sold over 60,000 pairs, making the pants its bestseller for seven years running. In fact, M.M. LaFleur says that the Foster pant is always a favorite for new customers who are just familiarizing themselves with the brand. And reviews from satisfied customers certainly prove they're all they're cracked up to be. 

"I would wear these every day if I could," writes one reviewer. "The fit is perfect, and I love the double seam on the front — so well made. I have them in dark blue, and I'm considering another color." 

"I have these in every color," writes another fan of the Fosters. "They are my go-to work or casual pants."

And of course, there are shoppers who love the fact that they take all that is good about the legging and reimagine those qualities in pants form. 

"I actually vastly prefer these to leggings — they're that comfortable. They're better than my loungewear and look super polished."
