Work Wear: Fancy Pants

 Blazer- Primark (similar), Blouse- Express, Pants- H&M, Heels- Charlotte Russe (similar), Bag- Coach, Necklace- Baublebar (similar), Watch- Fossil

A couple weeks back, I posted three outfit ideas for work, along with the promise that I'd try them out ASAP. This is my first real life version of those looks.


These pants. are. SO. COMFY! I'm so glad I stumbled across these drapey trousers at H&M. Okay, so maybe they slightly resemble pajama pants, but with the addition of a blazer, I felt perfectly dressed up enough for my business casual workplace. I'm pretty sure my coworkers agreed. I didn't even get any "you're wearing that?!" looks, at least. 

After work, I normally change into comfy clothes, or jeans if I'm going out somewhere. But the day I wore these pants? I didn't want to take them off. I threw on a t-shirt and a different pair of sandals and I was set for dinner out. (You can catch that look here next week.)

So here's my advice. If you want to be incredibly comfortable in your nine to five, snatch up a pair of loose fitting trousers. Even some with a drawstring like mine. Pair them with a structured top or blazer to combat the flowiness on bottom, and voila. Most comfortable work outfit, ever.

  1. I really love how you dressed these up and am excited to see this work outfit! I really love it. I think the fact that the pieces you paired it with are white and cream also really pulls the outfit to another level. After sitting at a computer desk for 6+ hours at work, comfortable pants and skirts are a must!

  2. Those relaxed Palazzo Pants are gorgeous and you have styled them beautifully. I love how well they work with that awesome bag and the White Blouse with the Black piping. =)

  15. Thanks Meghan! I have been squeezing in to pencil skirts that don't quite fit anymore for a while now, so these pants were a nice comfortable change! And I can never find good work pants that fit right anyway, so these are great :)

  21. Love this! I think I'd be weary of the drawstring (it always makes me thing sweatpants?!), but I do own a pair with just a stretchy top, so I'll definitely need to try this idea! :)
