If you’re like us, the mere sight of an airplane in the sky can make you nostalgic for your last adventure. You may also be like us, always in search of the perfect travel pants to pair with your plane tickets.


There are a lot of considerations when it comes to packing travel pants, from how they feel to how they function and look. At ADAY, our goal is to design your go-to essentials whether you’re wearing them at home, in the office, in the home-office or on the go.

The Best Travel Pants for Your Travel Plans

01. For the urban explorer...

Our Turn It Up Pants are for those who are unwilling to sacrifice style or function for the other. We absolutely love these pleated, tapered trousers. These pants are also made of nylon and elastane, which means they are flexible and will move with your body. They’ve got an elastic waistband that can keep up with whatever you’re up to.  

We especially love the color options (check out the beautiful Camel or Moss colorways ). If you’re looking for a non-pleated mid-rise version, check out our Turn it Around Pants.

02. For the business trip...

Pants that transition seamlessly from the plane to the board room are a must. Our Portfolio Tailored Pants, made of recycled nylon, are made for all the boss women - tailored, structured, wrinkle-resistant and super stretchy. Complete your look by pairing these Portfolio Pants with our Strategy Jacket.

03. For the chic jet setter...

If you’re the type of traveler that grabs a glass of wine at the airport before your long-haul flight and heads straight from baggage claim to a fancy dinner, our wide-legged On Board Pants are made for you. They're part of our Super Satin collection, so just consider them your go-to stretchy, flowy, undercover pajamas.

04. For the active vacation...

Our Easy Days Pants are the pinnacle of comfort, day after day. Made with an elasticated , gathered waistband and a blend of polyester and elastane, they’ are lightweight, sweat-wicking and pill-proof. Whether you’re on the move or you're prioritizing packing light, these are definitely the pair of travel pants for you.

05. For the everything traveler...

It’s no surprise the Throw it Higher Leggings made the list of best travel pants. These are one of our absolute favorite articles of clothing… period. They’re also easily one of the simplest ways to succeed at stylish travel.


These leggings are made with elastane, so expect these pants to be extra stretchy, breathable and flexible. They’re perfect for curling up for a plane nap, running to catch a train, or waking up for that sunrise hike. We especially love the zippered pocket details, which give these leggings an elevated look

Whether your plane ticket is next week or next year, you have time to prepare for your next adventure. And the cherry on top? Your travel pants are not just limited to a long-distance relationship. Our travel pants are also some of our favorite staples to incorporate into our soft serve summer capsule wardrobe.
