After working many years in an office, I have come to love a certain style of workwear pants. I love a skinny ankle workpant, because it’s so versatile and easy to wear. When I read The Curated Closet, my favorite outfit equation (no matter the situation) was a button-up top (or casual top) + skinny pants (or jeans) + flats or wedges. That combo works the best for me, in terms of feeling put together and comfortable. The best workwear pants, in my opinion, have been the Old Navy Pixie Pants. They have a few different versions, like chinos and mid-rise and high-rise.
Years ago, I wore the Old Navy Pixie Pants all the time to work. I had various colors and styles, but then I realized the fabric was so worn out after a year. After I donated them, I thrifted a ton of Ann Taylor Loft pants that were really great for years and years. Last year, I saw that Old Navy had some new High Waisted Pixie Pants, and I immediately tried them again. I’m back on the Pixie Pant bandwagon! They go in and out of stock on the Old Navy website, so I wanted to go ahead and share them now in case you need some new workwear pants.
Right now, I have three colors. I have two pairs of black, one pair of burgundy, and one pair of navy. I think they fit true to size, but they do stretch a little in the waist throughout the day. The material is very comfortable. It has the perfect amount of thickness and stretch. I have the petite sizing, and the high waist version. It is definitely the best fit for me, because it doesn’t cut me off at a weird spot on my waist (like the mid-rise pants do). Everything looks smooth.
I recently purchased the burgundy pair and a second black pair. The website claims these don’t fade. And while I can’t say my first black pair hasn’t faded in the past year, they have faded very minimally. I am impressed!
I just have to say, I promise this mirror gets dusted every week! This picture might have been taken the day it was getting dusted.
Anyways! This is a tried-and-true work outfit that just gets me out the door on time. I can add a cardigan when it gets cooler (or a blazer) and different jewelry to switch it up a little.
Thanks for checking out my best workwear pants! I am a creature of habit, so I’m not the type of person to share a huge roundup of 50 different pants. I prefer to find what works and stick with it. Let me know if this post was helpful!
