I know what you’re thinking:

Yoga pants for work? Yeah right!”

I felt the same way too about Betabrand pants. However, just before writing this post, I signed into my Betabrand account and manually counted five Betabrand pieces that I’ve added to my collection since last summer.

Style blogger, Louisa shows us how to style a Betabrand pants outfit. It's all in the details with a 3/4 sleeve scallop edge sweater, uber chic Betabrand yoga pants dress pants, a plaid blanket scarf (perfect for fall and winter), and a stylish pair of strappy heels. And if you want to know if Betabrand is worth the hype, you're gonna want to read this Betabrand pants review first.

And this is coming from a girl that was a skeptic.

The Betabrand pieces I own are:

  1. Betabrand The Sassiest Pants (Black)
  2. Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants Palazzo (Double-Pinstripe)
  3. Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants Skinny-Leg (Black)
  4. Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants Straight-Leg (Black)
  5. Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants Straight-Leg Tuxedo (Black)

Although the brand is known for its dress pants that feel like you’re lounging in yoga pants, Betabrand carries more than pants. They also have some of the coziest sweaters, breathable tops, stylish skirts, super-insulating outerwear, comfiest shoes, and most supple leather goods.

The full Betabrand collection can be found here. Unlike me, you might have seen some of their ads plastered around the internet.

So how did I get sold on this company? My coworker!

They say the best form of advertisement is word of mouth. I’m an example! She wore the Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants in style Straight-Leg to work. And always raved about them whenever she had them on. Truthfully, she looked good in the pants.

So, I gave in and ordered a pair. I was hooked.

As you can see, this “yoga pants” is definitely work appropriate. The tuxedo side panel is definitely a modern take on an everyday workwear. The panel has a subtle shine contrasting against the classic Betabrand black fabric.

Here’s a better view of the tuxedo panel details.

For reference, I wear a size XS or S (US 4) and weigh about 130 pounds (depending on how much I had for lunch/dinner 😂).

Because the pants fit like they were custom-made, I never have a need for the belt loops. I am wearing the straight leg pants in size XS Regular. It’s a perfect fit. I initially ordered a size small, but the waist was slightly too loose and too long. I quickly exchanged it for the XS Regular seen in this post.

Is Betabrand legit? I spent my money so you would not have to. Here's what I discovered after buying several Betabrand dress pant yoga pants!

Betabrand pants are so comfortable that I’ve worn them on long flights in and out of Alaska without feeling the urge to adjust or tug on my waist. They also offer hassle-free returns and exchanges with free shipping if you’re not in love with your purchase.

Betabrand promo codes are available from time to time (check here for the most current code). Students get 15% off through UniDays (all you need is a .edu email address 😉).

To care for your pants, the best practice is to have them washed cold (and line dry). I’ll admit that I don’t remember ever doing this and have not run into any problems with my work pants. You truly get what you pay for with high-quality products from Betabrand.

I know, I really should follow my own advice. Concerning shrinking after washing, I have not experienced any noticeable or significant changes either.

If you need to return or make an exchange, choosing the store credit refund over credit card refund gets you 110% store credit towards your next purchase. With the large selection of clothing to choose from, you’ll place your next order in no time.

For the rest of my look, I opted for one of a Halogen scallop edge sweater (similar) I purchased during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ve bought this sweater 2 years in a row because of how soft, stylish, practical and affordable it is.

However, it is one of those pieces that sell out fast. I would bet money that they’ll be back in different colors during the 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. And if I may use Marie Kondo’s words, the sweater “Sparks Joy” for me. It’s a wardrobe staple!

The scallop trim is a modern touch to a simple sweater. The classic 3/4 sleeve sweater adds an edge to this classic ribbed knit. This and this are two similar options for you.

I tied one of my favorite pieces and Amazon best-selling blanket scarf for an extra layer of warmth. I did the simple handkerchief style around my neck with the two loose ends tied in front. You can get the blanket scarf for $12 right now. And a selection of my favorite patterns on Amazon here.


This is not the first time you’ve seen me rave about this strappy sandals (similar). They are chic, stylish, classy and comfortable. So I’ll leave it at that. The exact pair I’m wearing is sold out, but I’ve linked two very similar options here and here for you since they are hard to find.

My bucket bag is an oldie from Zara that I bought several years ago. Also seen here is my tried and true Nokia Activity and Sleep watch. It is perfect for those looking for a sleek watch that goes beyond the basics.

    That looks comfy and classy all the same time. One of the reasons I don’t like to dress up is because it’s typically uncomfortable. Something like this would be wonderful to wear because I can stay comfortable and look classy.
