When working from home or lounging around on the weekends, there’s a fine line between being comfortable and making excuses to stay in your pajamas all day. Wearing baggy flannel pants or silky shorts around your house from morning until night might sound like a good idea in theory. But not getting dressed like you normally would in the morning can throw off any sense of routine, make you feel less put together, and, ultimately, can negatively impact your productivity. To find balance while spending your time going between the bedroom and living area, try to find pants that both are acceptable to wear outside yet don’t make you feel constricted when sitting at a desk, or even on your bed, throughout the day.
Here, we compiled a range of comfy yet polished pants that will make you feel as though you’re getting ready to go out. Read on to shop these easy-to-style picks, from trendy joggers to sleek leggings.
