Let's face it: More often than not, comfort takes precedence when it comes to getting ready. But dressing for comfort doesn't necessarily equate to sloppiness or a devil-may-care attitude. With the athleisure movement still going strong (along with everyone's obsession with sneaks), we've put together the perfect combo: wide-leg pants and low-tops.

Traditionally, trousers are worn with heels, so pairing them with kicks may seem counterintuitive. Seek out polished low-top lifestyle sneakers in a neutral palette rather than gym-worn trainers. As for pants, look for pairs cut from a more conservative cloth (versus a casual, fluid one) in sleek patterns and crisp folds.

Shop wide-leg trousers (from left): Topshop, $75; DKNY, $355; Zara, $60; 3.1 Phillip Lim, $495; Halston Heritage, $375;
