Maybe it was some kind of marketing ploy. But as a working professional, I needed to know if yoga pants for work were truly a possibility. So I’ll admit it, I fell for the bait. And just maybe that’s the thought you had running through your mind as you Googled Betabrand pants review.
This is my honest, no-bs Betabrand yoga dress pants review.
Happy new week my friends! In preparation for some big events I have happening this week, I’m sharing this dressed up workwear outfit with you today.

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.
And this is coming from a girl that was a skeptic.
The Betabrand pieces I own are:
- Betabrand The Sassiest Pants (Black)
- Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants Palazzo (Double-Pinstripe)
- Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants Skinny-Leg (Black)
- Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants Straight-Leg (Black)
- 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.
Betabrand Pants Review
So, what’s the deal with Betabrand?
Betabrand is an online clothing community based in San Francisco that allows customers and super fans co-design and crowdfund products into existence. How cool is that?
Over the years, some of the most popular and sensational Betabrand Web hits include:
- Dress Pant Yoga Pants (a no-brainer!)
- Executive Hoodies (back in limited quantity)
- Bike-to-Workwear (men and women)
- Black Sheep Sweaters (on my wishlist)
- Cordarounds pants (for men)
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.
You can check out my Betabrand review of the classic Betabrand dress pants yoga pants.
For today’s look, I’m styling the Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants Straight-Leg in the Tuxedo style as part of my Betabrand pants review. Think James Bond style!
As you can see, this “yoga pants” is definitely work-appropriate. The tuxedo side panel is definitely a modern take on 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.
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 occasionally (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 less than $15 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.
It has an activity tracker for different types of exercises, a sleep monitor that records and reports about your sleeping habit, your daily steps and much more.
Lastly, since February is the month of love, I just updated my gift guides. You’ll find gift ideas for men and women that are unique, practical, and affordable. And gift options for the man and woman who has everything.
This is all I have for you today. I hope you found this Betabrand pants review and this practical work look helpful. Have a fabulous day!
I am wearing:
Nokia Activity and Sleep watch (exact)
Scallop hem 3/4 sleeve sweater (similar)
Betabrand dress pants yoga pants (exact)
Plaid blanket scarf (more scarf selection)
Leather heeled sandals (similar | similar)

BE CAREFUL if you order form Betabrand! Something has changed. I own a couple dozen items, both pants and shirts, from Betabrand. I get so many compliments when I wear them. Orders took 2-3 weeks to arrive, but that’s not horrible. And returns were simple. I could reach them via phone or email. Over the last 6 months or so, something has changed. Of the last 6 items I ordered, only 2 showed up to my home. I am still waiting for a refund for the last item that disappeared mid-shipment (ordered Nov 2022… it is now Jan 2023). Check them out on the Better Business Bureau website. Recent complaints are very bad. I can’t verify this, but I think the business has changed hands.
Hi Jules, I’m glad you stopped by and dropped a comment. I haven’t made a recent purchase, but I felt something was off based on recent communications.
Thanks for the review! I’ve heard different things about sizing and length of the pants. How tall are you? Would help in gauging the waist/ length fit you reference.
Hi Andrea, I’ve 5″5. Hope this helps!
I’m quite impressed, those yoga pants look amazing on you. I’m always looking for comfy black pants and these look like they may work. I’m checking them out for sure. Cheers.

I know, right? Betabrand yoga work pants are amazing! And now that more people are going back to work, we can all appreciate the comfort and style of work pants that feel like yoga pants.
You rock those pants! I should try them, but I am self conscious about a style that is so form fitting.
Hi Teri, check out Betabrand’s bootleg pants. I find that those yoga work pants are more forgiving and also less form-fitting. Hope this helps!
The brand is new to me. Loving those pants, they look super stylish and fab on you x
These yoga pants are comfortable but very fashionable! Love them!
Those look really nice and comfy. I may need to get myself a pair. I love yoga pants.

Those pants looks really nice, so sad that style doesn’t fit my height, hehe

Hi Eileen, I believe Betabrand ships internationally and they’re mostly based online. Definitely worth checking out!
Wow! Love them and you look amazing! I need some of these and I don’t even work! I just love yoga pants and if I can get dressy ones for church/going out I am ALL IN!
I’ve totally worn my Betabrand pants to church too. I was tempted to wear them to the gym but ended up saving these for work and special occasions.😀
Those pants look so non-yoga. They look perfect for work and I bet they are so comfortable

Those are no ordinary yoga pants, they look great. I think they look so stylish and probably so comfortable and fancy enough for work too.
Yoga pants and high heels! Who would have thought someone could make that combo work so well, you look FAB!
Even when I was super skinny, I have always loved pants like this. I love how you can dress them up or down.
You look fabulous. These don’t even look like yoga pants to me. They are stylish, that’s for sure.

Yoga dress pants? Sign me up! And I love the sweater and the scarf you paired with it.

Those trousers look so comfortable! They seem like they would be a real wardrobe staple which would go with so many different things.
Definitely a staple in my wardrobe. Love the Betabrand yoga pants dress pants!
You’re making those “yoga pants” look super professional. Personally, I’m a jeans and T-shirt kind of guy, so anything that makes casual look more professional is great in my book!
My pleasure! Thanks.
This brand looks so cool! I love the versatility of these pants. I always hated having to buy pants for work that I wouldn’t want to wear any other time. The yoga work pants are genius!
Betabrand is the best invention since sweat pants ?
Those pants look divine! I’m loving the whole look. Love the style and the color of the top.
I can do the yoga pants for work you don’t have to tell me twice lol. That sweater though I love unique items that aren’t’ the norm.
Thank you Kita!
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.
Exactly! Took the words right out of my mouth Jeanette!
You look fabulous in this outfit. I do love those pants. I’m a huge fan of the color of that top too!
They are one of my most worn pants right now. Comfort on another level!
I love the scalloped sweater. That color of green is so spring! I like where the sweater hits you on your hip. It looks elegant and easy to wear.
Such a sweet compliment. Thanks Terri!
I’ve heard so many great things about Betabrand. Those pants sound heavenly and I love your entire outfit.
You look incredible, so stylish!
Those pants sound like a dream, and your scalloped sweater is so cute.
Betabrand pants do fit like a dream 🙂 Thanks for stopping by Kelsey.
