If it’s been a while since you broke a pair of dress pants out of the back of your closet, you’ll get no judgment here. We’ve all been taking a more casual approach to fashion while working from home, but now that many of us are headed back to the office, it’s time to do a wardrobe refresh and make sure we have at least a few boardroom-ready pieces on hand.
And even though we never thought we’d say this, the Shop TODAY team is actually looking forward to restocking our dress pant collection with a few fresh styles this season. From vibrant colors to playful prints, these are the pairs we can’t wait to step into.
Finally, a pair of jogger pants we can actually wear to the office! These ones have a high drawstring waist and tapered leg. The style comes in seven different colors with two standout shades — red-violet and mauve — that we can’t wait to sport going into the colder months.
Over 4,000 Amazon shoppers have given this popular pair of pants a five-star rating and we’re beginning to understand why. They bring the comfort of a pair of leggings and the panache of a pair of dress pants.
You’ll look polished in a pair of paperbag pants that works equally well at the office or for a night out with the girls. The loose fit means you’ll feel nice and comfy while working and the pants can be styled countless ways, making them a versatile addition to your work wardrobe.
Contrary to popular belief, dress pants don’t have to be boring. Little details, like the gold buttons on these faux leather pants, can help add a touch of personality, so we’re always on the hunt to find something a bit out of the ordinary.
Posh in black! These crisp dress pants are a timeless wardrobe staple with a twist, thanks to its comfy machine-washable cotton material. They’re also available in regular and plus sizes.
A slight flair at the ankle sets these sassy trousers apart from the crowd and can add a nice pep to your step. The style is available in three colors — gray, navy and black — and even features handy tummy control technology.
You can’t go wrong with chino pants. The no-fuss style is a touch more approachable than some other dress pants and the fabric is both comfy and easy to care for. These ones from Lands’ End feature a comfy interior elastic waist and slim fit, and come in both khaki and black. The brand also offers free hemming to help you get the perfect fit!
Stretchy dress pants? Yep, they do exist! This high-waisted pull-on style comes in over a dozen colors — our fave is the blue-ish gray hue — and is made of an insanely soft knit fabric that moves with you as you go about your busy day.
One reviewer mentioned that they “love everything about these pants, especially the material — having 19% rayon in the mix gives a little more thickness but still enough stretch for comfort.” Snag these cozy plaid pants while they’re $20 off.
After a year of rocking sweatpants and leggings every day at home, we’re craving comfort and these soft crepe dress pants definitely fit the bill with their draped fit and elastic waistband. The style comes in three colors — black, olive and red — and we can definitely see ourselves rocking the latter with a black and white polka dot sweater this winter.
Everlane gave these pants a pretty appropriate name: the dream pant. After all, who wouldn’t want to rock something that feels like sweatpants at the office? It’s almost like you’re getting away with something! The pants are made of a soft double-knit fabric and have a comfy elastic waist, but they’re also tailored and wrinkle-resistant, making them totally appropriate for your 9-5 life.
If you live in a warmer climate, cropped pants are a work wardrobe essential, and this pair of playful culottes will help you look and stay cool, no matter what the weather brings.
Who said that work clothes have to be so serious? An animal print in neutral hues — black and white, in this case — helps show off your personality in the most professional way possible.
Why blend in when you can stand out from your coworkers in a bright pair of dress pants that shows off your personality? This option features an eye-catching belt and is made from 50% recycled polyester. Complete the look with Zara’s lapelless blazer.
Confidence is key at work and this pair of slimming dress pants from Spanx can help you feel and look your best when you have a big presentation to nail. Its smoothing ponte fabric and four-way stretch hug your curves in the best possible way and the style is available in a wide array of sizes, ranging from XS-3X.
