Ask any working woman and she will tell you the importance of having a great work wardrobe at your disposal. Stocking your closet with flattering and reliable pieces that are easy to mix and match will not only make getting dressed in the morning easier, but it will also give you the confidence you need to tackle the day. 

While sleek pencil skirts and tailored blazers can be relatively easy to find in most stores, I’ve personally struggled with finding versatile trousers that are comfortable, flattering, and office-appropriate—that is, until now. Spanx recently launched a line of work-ready pants called “The Perfect Black Pant” that checks all the above boxes, and I’m obsessed. 

I’ve been a fan of the brand’s shapewear and super comfortable bras for a while now, so when Spanx sent me its new line of trousers, I knew I had to give them a try. Along with being made from a soft four-way stretch material that moves with your body, the stylish bottoms also feature Spanx’s signature shapewear technology.

The line is comprised of four silhouettes made from the same stretchy ponte fabric—a backseam skinny pant, a four-pocket skinny trouser, a hi-rise flare, and a cropped flare—and I can personally attest that each pair was equal parts comfortable and flattering. Seriously, every time I slipped into one of them, it felt like wearing yoga pants. 

Besides the insane comfort level, my favorite part of these pants was their versatility. They looked just as cute with cozy sweaters and sneakers as they did with tailored button-downs and high heels. I was also a fan of the easy pull-on design. Each pair featured a high-waisted smoothing band that left a clean layering base for my tops and did not cut into my midsection like other trousers tend to.

The line ranges in size from XS to 3XL and also comes in tall and petite sizes, so you’ll have no trouble finding your perfect fit. What’s more? The collection is priced between $110 and $145, and each pair is machine-washable—so they’ll save you money in dry-cleaning fees in the long run.
