Yes!!! ‘Leggings’ you can really wear to work!

I’ve been on the hunt for pants that look like leggings, but with a thicker material and the feeling of trousers.  You know, the best of both worlds – which I realize is a big request.  After a lot of searching, I finally found a winner – the J. Crew Factory Gigi Pants.  They have stellar reviews, and yes, you can really wear them to work!

Several of the reviews suggest sizing down if you’re between sizes or unsure, so I purchased size 0 (my usual size is 2).  They fit just right – tight like leggings should be, but also comfortable.  The material contours your body and helps sculpt, so they’re very slimming and flattering.  If you prefer a looser fit instead, order your usual size.

true black, super stretchy, flattering, AND comfortable…I sized down for a tight, legging-like fit, but order your regular size if you want a looser fit

These are exactly what I was looking for! They have the thicker material, and they even have real back pockets and belt loops.

These ‘leggings’ have belt loops and back pockets!

One gripe is that there isn’t a shorter inseam option, so the inseam is way too long for me – 30″!  This is great for the taller ladies, but not for the shorties like me.  I hope they offer petite sizes in the future, but for now, I can tuck them under without a problem.

Another big disadvantage to note: these state they are dry-clean only, which can be a huge pain.

Overall though, the fit of these is incredible.  If I were still working in an office setting, I would buy more and wear them on repeat.

 

If you’d rather have a pair that’s machine washable, check out the Banana Republic Devon Legging-Fit Machine-Washable Bi-Stretch Pant.  These also have a tight, legging-like fit, but they’re (obviously) machine washable. 🙂  I tried them, but I ended up returning because my usual size was too small and I didn’t love the zipper going up the side.  I definitely recommend sizing up if you purchase this pair.
