While it seems like we’re practically living in sweatshirts, leggings, and workout clothes these days, it never hurts to get dressed when you can. In fact, psychologists claim that getting out of your pajamas in the morning helps to ease quarantine anxiety. Still, there’s no reason to not be comfortable when you have nowhere to go. Enter stylish pull-on pants — they come in all styles, prints, and colors, and feel just as comfy as your sweats. You’ll love them during and after quarantine (yes, there is an end in sight!).
Best Pull-On Capri Pants
These ankle pants are perfect for walking the dog, going to church, or just sipping on coffee on your patio. They look good on all body types, and are cut to lengthen short legs and perk up your booty. They come in both muted and bright summer colors, so you can make them work for any look.
One Amazon reviewer wrote, “This is my third pair of Popana pants I’ve ordered online (2 from Amazon). Love the fit (I’m 5’ tall, so the pants fit over my ankle which is perfect for me since they’re tapered). The quality and cut are fantastic; made in the USA, too!”

These pants are high-waisted, so they almost act as shapewear for your belly. The nautical stripe is perfect for summer, and will dress up even a basic t-shirt. The bottom cuffs look polished and expensive, even though the pants are super affordable. They come in sizes X-small through XX-large and flatter all body types.
Best Pull-On Dress Pants
These classic bootcut pants have more than 1,500 rave reviews on Amazon, and we can see why. There’s a hidden, contouring control panel along the waist that will smooth your tummy. The decorative stitching and faux belt loop details dress them up for work, brunch, or just a quick trip to the grocery store. Plus, they come in petite sizes!
One Amazon reviewer wrote, “I couldn’t believe that with my pear shaped body I’d have a perfect fit. These pants are incredible. Beautiful quality, and the ratings were absolutely correct in that they 100% fit. I’ve bought 5 pairs total.”
These will be your favorite pants. Made of 90 percent jersey-knit cotton with 10 percent stretchy Lycra 3D, they’ll feel great without clinging to your body. They also come with five pockets (who doesn’t love pockets?), giving them the versatility of jeans but with a dressier look.
One L.L.Bean reviewer wrote, “Love these pants. They are on-trend with the slim leg, and the added bonus for me [are] the pockets. They are very slimming and super comfortable … These can be used everyday, for work, even dress, and I’ll be ordering more in every color. Thanks, LL Bean!”
Best Pull-On Linen Pants
These machine-wash linen pants are breezy and perfect for summer. Dress them up with a button-down blouse, or keep it casual with a pair of sneakers and a simple tee. The faux-button fly is stylish without being fussy, and adds some interest to a classic pair of trousers. They come in black as well, and sizes XS – 3X.

These cropped-leg linen pants will make you feel like you’re on a beach vacation. The fabric is lightweight for warm weather and drapes nicely down the leg. And for the price, you can afford to get them in more than one color!
One Amazon reviewer wrote, “My opinion, these are cute for ANY age. I got the black and the beige/natural color in Large – my pant size is 10-12 or 31-32 typically and they fit very comfortably, without looking sloppy. Seem to be sturdy, I checked seams and they are well made. Material is thick enough to be non-see through, but they are still light weight.”
These 100 percent linen pants are made from premium-grade European flax, meaning they will keep their shape and softness after many washes. The straight-leg cut is relaxed through the hip and thigh, so you won’t have to worry about clinging. The sizes are accommodating to all with regular, petite, and plus options, and there are pockets!
One L.L. Bean reviewer wrote, “They are perfect. They are everything one expects from LLBean at a price that is very reasonable given their level of quality. The fabric especially is wonderful; it’s substantial, not tissue paper thin like a lot of linen on the market, and drapes beautifully.”
Best Pull-On Wide-Leg Pants
These pretty wide-leg pants practically scream for sandal weather! Made of viscose and rayon, they’re soft and lightweight yet have the look and feel of high-quality slacks. Because the print is so fabulous, you can keep it simple up top with a basic tank top or camisole.
One Anthropologie reviewer wrote, “Love these pants! Lightweight and comfortable. Can’t wait to wear them with some cute sandals this summer.”

These wide-leg pants are slimming in more ways than one. Darts below the back waistband and a tie belt both emphasize the waist while covering a tummy pooch. The vertical stripes lengthen and slim, so you can feel leggy (even if you’re not). Dress them up or down — it’s up to you!
