Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

If you’re looking to try out the wide-leg pants trend, this pair from By Design is a great way to give it a shot without breaking the bank. I like the front seams, which give a slightly elongating feel (especially good for the short-legged among us).

They come in black, sand, and navy, perfect for all your neutral needs.

The pants are $39.97 at Nordstrom Rack and come in sizes 0–14.

These similar By Design pants are available in plus sizes (0X–3X) and are $44.97 at Nordstrom Rack.

Hunting for more wide-leg pants to wear to work? We just rounded some up — general favorites include pleated pairs like Favorite Daughter, Everlane*, Reformation*, and Abercrombie*, with flat-front pairs from Good American,* M.M.LaFleur, and Ann Taylor. (* = plus sizes; see the post for notes on petites and talls). Latest favorites include these (as of Sept. 2023):


Reformation (also Nordstrom)

Amazon / Tronjori

Favorite Daughter (and Nordstrom)
