I love them for the presumably obvious reason that they are lounge pants disguised as pants appropriate to wear outside of the house. Sneakily wearing lounge wear outside is a small win that I am happy to take. Sitting at work feeling like you’re in your pajamas working from home rather than an office cubical is a glorious feeling which is why I try to reserve these pants for Mondays – the most brutal of all work days.
I hate them as they wrinkle almost instantaneously. I take precious time out of my morning routine (during which I am undoubtedly running late) to iron these pants and by the time I get to the office, it looks as if I put them on only after finding them rolled into ball at the bottom of my bag. If I wanted to wear these on a day I had an afternoon meeting, I would have to carry a purse sized steamer.
My hate for them also stems from that they frankly don’t look that great. They are not the most figure flattering pair of pants I own. So there’s that too.
BUT THEY ARE SO COMFY!
So what is a pajama in disguise loving professional to do? Wear ‘em anyways, wallow in my comfort, and be sure to always carry a liter size bottle of wrinkle release.
