With COVID-19 forcing people to stay inside for most of the foreseeable future, wardrobes just got a lot smaller. Even the most diehard denim heads are likely not reaching for their rigid jeans, and instead choosing something with more comfort and stretch.
Luckily, there are countless denim-inspired pants for moments like this. Switch up your leggings-pajamas-sweatpants routine with one of these styles that will bring back a small sense of normalcy in these trying times.
