Even if an increasing number of jobs have changed to remote work, more women than ever are thinking about returning to the office or just thinking about it, so they need to update their wardrobes. Staring through your closet after months of wearing leggings and sweatpants can feel a little scary. What can you wear that is work appropriate and still comfortable? Additionally, the thought of going shopping for new workplace apparel or updating your existing collection of workwear is truly terrifying.

When choosing the ideal professional attire, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. However, the ideal workday wardrobe should consist of pieces that suit your body shape and your office type. That being said, regardless of office fashion, choosing what to wear to work shouldn't break the bank. This article will guide you what soft pants you should wear to your office and how to style them. 

Important Tips for Wearing Pants to the Office

There are many different types of pants that you can choose from for your work wardrobe to meet the requirements of the business casual dress code. These include flared pants, peg-top pants, straight-leg pants, wide-leg pants, long or cropped cuts, and alternatives made from cotton, wool, linen, or synthetic fabrics.

For your business casual ensembles, I would suggest choosing pants in muted or dark colors. Additionally, avoid too busy prints like paisley, polka dots, or florals as they can look too informal in a casual work environment.

Moreover, it is very important to stay away from casual work wear that includes sweatpants, track pants, leggings, shorts, cargo trousers, pajamas or silk pants.
