After exclusively wearing leggings or sweatpants for the past two years months, the idea of going back into an office might be a bit of a culture shock. Even dressing up to go to brunch may feel like a huge effort. Which is why we suggest investing in some pull-on pants. Wearing “real clothes” might seem unbearable at first, why don't you ease your way back into business attire with easy-to-wear pull-on pants? Major retailers have expanded their offerings for women’s joggers and trousers with stretchy material and elastic waistbands, and we couldn’t be happier.

Whether you’re looking for an appropriate yet super comfy pair for the holidays, a wildly fun look for the new year, or pull-on dress pants for working in an office, we’ve got you covered. See our top picks at all price points and sizes below.

The best dressy pull-on pants

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings — $98.00

Available in regular, petite, and tall lengths, in sizes XS to 3X, these faux leather high-waisted leggings should be a staple in every person’s closet (there’s a reason why they’re so popular).

Lululemon Stretch Luxtreme™ High-Rise Pant — $118.00

These super stretchy, high-rise pants are full length, but a jogger style, meaning they are tapered at the ankle. They come in four gorgeous colors, and sizes 0 through 20. The site features free shipping and returns, or you can pick up your pair in the store. There is a drawstring at the waistband ensuring optimal fit, and front pockets for convenience.

Over 4,300 give them five stars, with one writing, “The fit, the stretch, the length, the material, the comfort, for me, are all perfect.” We’ll take them in all four colors.
