Button-less Pants for Fall


I lived in pull-on shorts in the summer, and I plan to continue that trend right into the fall.

OneTwoThreeFourFiveSixSevenEightNineTenElevenTwelve (similar).

Since many of us are working from home now, when we were otherwise heading into an office, it’s safe to say that getting dressed for the day has taken a sharp turn into the “casual” category. And beyond that, a zoom call really only shows the top half of your outfit, so *really* most of us only need to get half dressed up to be seen by coworkers.

And that is why I present to you the best pants options for sitting at your desk at home for work: pull-on pants.

There is not a button in sight.

The key to balancing an outfit like this is if the pants are wide-leg or drapey, go with a more fitted top. Conversely, if the pants are more tailored (like a jogger), you can get away with a looser top.

I included a few easy shoe options just for kicks (pun intended), but I won’t tell anyone if you just wear slippers all day.

    How would you dress this up? I’ve gained a lot of weight the past couple months (thanks covid!) and my go-to jeans are very uncomfortable. I teach piano lessons in person though so I still need to look nice. Is there any way I can get the comfort and still look professional?

    Have you ever considered adding one plus size option? Possibly a little more inclusive?

      A few retailers that I featured here offer plus size: like H&M and Target!

    Thank you for these! Have been looking for new work pants and even though I’m back in the office these are perfect.

    I am very new to dry shampoo and learning to not wash my hair. How do I even begin? Mom of two boys, teacher of 3rd grade. I would love to have the ease of not washing my hair and still feel stylish. Help!
