Over the past two years, I have worked from home. It was initially a relief to be able to take meetings in yoga pants and an acceptable top (hack: wear black). During a walk with my dogs or on the couch, I would tackle my to-do list from bed and speak to coworkers on the phone. I realized that I could spend more money on loungewear instead of denim and dresses, so I bought a variety of leggings and sweatpants. A year later, it became stale.

Pants were missing from my life. Pre-pandemic life was so normal that I missed it. It was important for me to have a morning routine to separate the uniform of my day from the one I wear at night, in order to establish healthier boundaries in my life. I brushed my jeans off and took them for a spin while I worked at the kitchen table on a deadline.

The fact that I quickly realized I was uncomfortable may have been because I hadn’t worn clothing other than spandex for a long time. When jeans were this stiff, were they always like this? My first thought was, “What a sucka.”. I searched on Google for a solution and found it: The Allison Pant by Marine Layer.

In addition to being casual and dressy, the Allison Pant is also comfortable. They look like slacks for the office with their elastic waistband and sleek straight leg. I secretly still wear them as pajamas. TENCEL Lyocell/Hemp fabric is very soft and feels like bedsheets. Yet, the design is stable (the dolphin hem adds an extra touch). Moreover, Marine Layer makes high-quality, sustainable clothing thanks to its sustainable fashion goal.

The Allison Pant can also be dressed up-I wear it with a button-up shirt tucked in (my dogs can’t see this detail, but it matters to me). If I want something simple but “I Tried”-esque, I pair it with a silky camisole tank. I get dressed, wear a T-shirt, sneakers, and walk the dogs or go shopping for dinner supplies when I finish work for the day.

Despite their versatility, these pants are not pajamas, so they cannot be worn to bed. They are special because of that. I like the Allison Pant because it’s just fancy enough for me. I have my lineup of sweatpants ready when I log off for the day and want to binge old episodes of Grey’s Anatomy in bed.
