If you’re currently working from home, you might have noticed how mood and clothing are interconnected. While we often don’t feel the need to dress up for work as we did pre-quarantine, many people do feel better when they look their best.

Now that dressing up isn’t part of a lot of people’s morning routine, things like suit pants, jeans and trousers may feel too formal to be wearing in your home during working hours. Comfy pants that look professional are the perfect outfit staple to help you stay motivated while working hard and love what you’re wearing — and Lululemon shoppers are calling out one pair of pants as “luxury, comfort and functionality all in one.”

Lululemon’s City Sleek 5 Pocket 7/8 Pant are the perfect piece of clothing to add to your work-from-home wardrobe because it will help you maintain that polished, put-together look while remaining comfortable.

What are they?

The City Sleek 5 Pocket 7/8 Pants are an everyday essential pant that is inspired by the classic 5-pocket jean and has a denim-like fit. It’s designed for those on the move with performance qualities that keep you comfortable but looking sharp.

What features do they have?

This 5-pocket pant is designed with Lululemon’s Warpstreme fabric which is wrinkle resistant, quick-drying, breathable and has four-way stretch.

The fabric is supposed to feel smooth and fall softly away from the body. The high-rise, 7/8 pant has a fly front which gives it a professional look and flip up cuffs to reveal reflective details. The casual-yet-put-together pants come in three colours; black, spiced bronze and true navy.

Buyers can choose between a 27” and 30” inseam — and they come in sizes 0 to 14. Lululemon suggest to order a size up as sizing runs small.

What are customers saying?

The City Sleek 5 Pocket 7/8 Pant was recently released but it has already gained more than 100 reviews, with one customer calling them “really the best pants Lululemon has come out with in years!”

“I ordered a size up from my normal size and they fit great! I love the feel of these and recommend for a comfy work pant option,” says one five-star review.

Another happy customer calls the pants “luxury, comfort and functionality all in one.”

“These pants give me luxury, comfort and functionality at a time when I needed it most! They are beautiful but also rewarding with purpose and every little detail has been paid attention to,” adds the customer. “I have such issues finding the perfect fit, but these have proven to be one of the most iconic I have yet to find!”

“These pants have quickly become a regular in my rotation. I debated between the Spiced Bronze and Black, and ultimately decided to go with the Bronze in the 7/8 since I'm fairly petite, which looks great with denim and white button downs for casual meetings or meeting up with friends, or T-shirts for running errands or hanging around the house,”adds another five-star reviewer. “I'm on my feet and moving around a lot at work, so I'm always looking for clothes that are comfortable and durable but that also transition to a more polished look for client meetings or hanging out with friends after work. These do both beautifully!”

“These sit a bit higher on the waist and as such, it might be better to size up,” adds another. “They look great and are perfect for work.”
