The days of needing to be uncomfortable at the office are over! Now, there are so many yoga pants that double as work pants – AKA yoga dress pants – that nobody will ever realize you’re literally wearing your workout (or couch lounging) clothes to the office!
This is going to seem awfully random, but sometimes when I see girls walking around college campuses, which admittedly isn’t very often at all, I find myself feeling a tad envious of their athleisure ensembles. Yoga pant culture wasn’t yet a thing when I was in college, so I typically wore real clothes. Gross!
Thankfully, yoga pant culture is now a huge thriving business. Personally, I have two pairs of jeans and 20 pairs of yoga pants. Why feel constrained when you can feel free?
Of course, it’s easy to wear yoga pants when you’re spending your days watching Netflix, playing with the kids, or buying things you don’t need at Target, but what about for the office? There can’t possibly be yoga dress pants, right?!
Oh, my friends. Buckle up. There are actually a bunch of different yoga dress pants options, aka yoga pants you can wear to the office without anybody having a clue.
Intrigued? Keep reading and make your work wardrobe that much more comfortable!
The Best Yoga Dress Pants
This isn’t the first time I’ve talked about the dress pant yoga pant from BetaBrand, and it probably won’t be the last. I LOVE all things BetaBrand. Their yoga pants are comfortable, flattering, and well-made. Look at those ladies in the picture – can you honestly say it’s immediately apparent they’re wearing yoga pants to work? I think not!
These work yoga pants have a faux zipper and pockets. They have a mid-rise, although BetaBrand just released a high-waisted dress yoga pant as well. These pants are available in XXS-XXL and come in various lengths, including tall and petite, as well as various colors.
You can get BetaBrand Yoga Dress Pants at Amazon, although this is one time I’m not sure shopping at Amazon makes sense. BetaBrand frequently has sales and coupons, which you won’t find at Amazon. For a quick coupon, use my referral link and you’ll get an instant BetaBrand coupon: $15 off your first $75+ purchase.
I have heard nothing but rave reviews for NYDJ Ponte Pants. The Michelle Trousers above are a classic style that’s perfect for the office, and there’s also a slim leg option. The pants are available in sizes 0-18.
Here’s some good news if you don’t love shopping online: Amazon Prime members can now take advantage of Amazon Prime Wardrobe! With Amazon Prime Wardrobe, you can fill a box with items you’d like to try on (including these NYDJ ponte pants!), and you’ll only pay for what you decide to keep!
I have also seen quite a few people bragging about these skinny ponte knit pants from Halogen. They are cut very slim, but I love how the model above is wearing them with ballet flats. The shoes and top are definitely going to be key to making sure this particular pant doesn’t look too casual.
If you’re searching for yoga dress pants in plus sizes, look no further than these Kelsey Ponte Knit Trousers from Liverpool Jeans Company. Words used to describe these pants include “comfortable,” “polished,” and “work-wardrobe staple.” All of that sounds perfect.
Whether you’re looking for basic black or perhaps white and pink dress yoga pants, Lisette L has you covered! In fact, this store has the largest selection of yoga pants you can wear to work that I’ve found online! Some prints are definitely more casual than others, but for many styles, nobody would ever be able to tell that you’re actually wearing your comfy pants to work! In addition to traditional sizes, Lisette L also carries plus size dress yoga pants, although the number of prints is not nearly as abundant.
While the prices at this store are on the higher end, I did spot a few items on sale and if you sign up for the Lisette L email list you will receive a coupon for 10 percent off your first order.
The Devon Legging from Banana Republic is another pant that will need to be styled just so in order to wear to the office, but I don’t think it’d be that hard. Perhaps you could pair them with a different-colored blazer, or even an office-appropriate tunic.
These leggings are available in black and navy, in sizes 0-20.
New York & Company has a bunch of different styles of yoga dress pants, but how could I not include the hot pink 7th Avenue Pant? In a sea of fancy black yoga pants, these pink pants are a breath of fresh air!
This particular style is an online exclusive that’s available in sizes 0-20. It comes in a couple of different colors.
Of course, Eloquii was going to come through with a fabulous pair of plus size dress yoga pants! I love everything about the outfit above for the office! These zipper leggings look fabulous, but one of my favorite aspects is that they have a high waist, which means that not only will the be super comfortable, but they’re going to be super flattering as well.
