10 Work Pants So Chic You’ll Never Want To Take Them Off

Power dressing, who?

Work is a considerable part of our lives – so it only makes sense that having a go-to workwear wardrobe with some fool-proof pieces is a must. 

After all, what is worse than that 6:30am, pre-coffee, barely awake panic of “what on Earth am I going wear today”? Nothing. Which is why a good pair of timeless work pants is going to be your new BFF and solution to that age-old question.

Whether you work in the office, are on that WFH grind or you’re on the hunt for the perfect interview ‘fit – a situation is bound to come up sooner or later where you want to look professional and put-together yet still stylish. 

Especially now we have taken a turn to winter and corporate dressing can be a little tricky, a well fitting pair of work pants is way to go to nail your everyday work outfit. 

They’re so easy to style, you won’t even have to think come morning time, simply pair with a t-shirt and sneakers for a more modern laidback look, or throw on some pumps or heeled boots with a slinky silky shirt for an outfit that will take you from the boardroom to the bar. Throw on a matching blazer or trench and you have the ideal power dressing combo on chilly days. 

Take a look below at some of our favourite work pants to shop and you can thank us later when you cut down your morning routine by half.
