What is it?

These lightweight, travel-friendly pants come from women’s clothing brand, Aday. Aday specializes in creating technical clothing inspired by classic cuts and fabrics. The result? Clothes that have all the comfort and durability of athletic wear but look modern and put-together. The Easy Day Pants are no exception – they’re comfy enough to wear to the airport but designed with a sleek silhouette that makes them easy to dress up or down throughout the rest of your trip.

Why do I need it?

Aday’s Easy Day Pants cover all the features you could possibly want from travel pants: They’re made from a breathable, sweat-wicking material that also resists pilling with wear. They don’t wrinkle (a bonus for those of us who pack by jamming clothes haphazardly into our suitcase) and they’re machine washable.

The elastic waistband makes them comfortable (and forgiving if you’ve overindulged during your vacation), while the tie belt can be knotted at the front or back. With a lightweight material and cropped length, these pants wear well in both warmer and cooler climates. They also have two cell-sized side pockets, which are handy for keeping your phone accessible to snap photos of your journey.

Should I buy it?

A big part of Aday’s philosophy is to design versatile clothes that feel appropriate for a variety of occasions and can be worn throughout different seasons – exactly the same goals as travellers looking to pack minimally but stylishly.

Additionally, Aday partners with sustainable factories to produce these pants (and all their other clothing) and looks to minimize production leftovers, so you can feel good about supporting a brand that’s trying to make clothing production a little more eco-friendly.
