It's been almost four years since lockdown happened and we were forced to work from home indefinitely (we can't believe it's been that long either). Since then, things have, for the most part, gone back to normal, and that includes going back to the office. While we love being able to see our coworkers in person, one thing we'll definitely miss about in-person work is that we won't be able to wear sweatpants every day. If you've gotten used to working in your pajamas, the idea of wearing actual work clothes might seem daunting, to say the least. But it's time to dispel the myth that work clothes can't be comfortable and chic at the same time, because there are actually tons of options out there for the girlies who want to look professional but still value comfort. That's why we rounded up a list of the best comfy yet chic workwear.

With picks from activewear brands like Lululemon and Athleta as well as classic staples from J. Crew and Old Navy, this list is packed with workwear that is comfortable enough to wear all day, no matter how long you have to sit at your desk. From soft sweaters and pleated pants to flowy dresses and button down tops, keep reading for a list of the best comfy and chic work clothes that will get you office-ready.
