Transitional trousers: 20 comfy pants to help you break up with your leggings

Transitional trousers: 20 comfy pants to help you break up with your leggings

Comfy transitional trousers that will take you from the comfort of your home, to the comfort of someone else's home - whenever that may be.

Is anyone else sick at the sight of that trusted leggings and sweater combo that eye us up with assured cockiness every morning? Of course we’re going to pick you, you’re comfortable and warm, but at the same time, we can’t wait to ditch you at the first sign of a good time. 

But while that good time might look more and more distant with the stagnant Covid numbers, we can’t help but wonder, will we really be that eager to ditch the comfortable sweats and leggings?

We have sourced the perfect selection of pants that are just as comfy to lounge in as they are smart and chic – wear them with slippers or stilettos, barefoot or boots – our picks will cater to all of your transitional wardrobe needs. 

Timeless classic


Ribbed flared leggings, €39.99, Nu-In

When you think ‘business casual’, classic black trousers come to mind (and if they don’t, they should). A pair of black trousers are the ultimate staple for every working woman’s wardrobe – we have picked a variety of styles, all with stretchy waistbands, so that there is sure to be something for everyone in the audience. 

Colour-block-casual


Gujarat trousers, €99, Gimaguas

If you’re looking for an upgrade from the classic black trouser – maybe something to inject a pop of colour into your wardrobe whilst remaining subdued and just as wearable at the same time – this is the selection for you. A plain colour-blocked trouser is just as easy to dress up or to dress down, with the added benefit of being a little more playful and a lot more fun. 

Meet the neutrals

Elastic-Waist Linen Trousers, €59, Arket

Not quite into the colour-pop extravaganza, but something lighter and springier than the traditional black – introducing the neutrals. This collection of muted, earthy toned trousers glide through the seasons seamlessly. 

A little spice


Raj flared leggings, €99, Zalando

If you’re anything like us, you’re scrolling through TikTok so much that you see the algorithms favourite stars more than you see your own family. If you feel inclined, take heed of the current TikTok trend and are looking to add a little spice to your life – investing in a pair of these beauties to spice up your working wardrobe, would be a great place to start.
