No matter your preferred style or aesthetic, there’s one thing we can all agree makes the perfect work wardrobe: versatility. Whether you’re mixing and matching, looking for comfort and quality, or simply sourcing that go-to piece you can chuck on while saving your brain power for the boardroom, work pants and trousers are key to completing your 9 to 5 ‘fit check. 

Paired with a classic shirt or trendy blouse, work pants come in a variety of shapes and sizes to take you seamlessly from desk to dinner. From straight to cropped and everything in between, today’s trouser options for women offer flattering silhouettes that you can wear with confidence, again and again and again.

So, what should you look for in a business-approved pant or trouser? A tailored fit makes for a structured appearance, while a wide-leg is great for a proportional look. Those leaning on the fashionable side might prefer boot-cuts or flares that require a little more styling effort, and a high-rise waist is ideal for those with a corporate dress code. As for material, consider the temperature of your work space. Got an office air con that belongs in the arctic? Then look for wool-blends over linens for a cosier option.
