The idea of buying work pants may not fill you with immediate excitement or have you rushing to the store, but if you ask us, the workwear staple is significantly underrated.
With relaxed tailoring and Scandi styling continuing to have a stranglehold over our sartorial choices, the humble work pant can now have a fashionable life outside the office—if you invest in the right pair, that is.
Ask any capsule wardrobe convert and they’ll tell you a great pair of tailored pants in both black and neutral are key basics to have in your rotation.
Pair with a button up shirt and pumps for your 9-5 before switching it up with a basic tee or oversized knit and loafers on the weekend.
