1 Trend, 3 Ways: Fun (and Comfy!) Knit Pants

01/19/2011 at 02:00 PM ET

Being comfy never looked so cool — or so cute! Whether running errands with mom and dad or on a playdate, Hollywood tots have been rocking some seriously adorable bottoms.

We recently spotted Samuel Black — dad is Jack Black — and Zuma Rossdale at the park in fun striped versions, while Brendan Wahlberg sported a spot-on pair during a shopping trip with dad Mark Wahlberg in L.A. last week.

Easy-to-wear and oh-so soft, a fun printed pair of knit pants are perfect for a day of laidback lounging — or playing.

Ready to shop? We’ve rounded up our top picks — for every budget — below.

You’ll go bananas over Crankypants‘ super soft Classic Sock Monkey Longies ($80), which are hand-knit with 100 percent Peruvian wool.

Even better? You can have a pair custom-made for your tot.

babyGap‘s hip, cargo-style Striped Sweater Pants ($10) are great for cold weather.

Added bonus: They’re lined with soft fabric for extra insulation.

They look like pajamas to me. Just put him in pajamas then. Not a fan.

The splurge ones are normally used for babies that wear cloth diapers. I have a few pairs of longies and shorties for my son. You can make your own out of old wool sweaters as well.
