Continuing with my affordable workwear series today!
I am so bottom-heavy that you won’t often find me in pants (leggings all day long!). It’s difficult to find pants that fit over my hips, butt, and thighs that aren’t way too big in the waist. I call it big booty problems. My build means I live in skirts and dresses.
When I Googled “best work pants” a lot of $250+ options came up. That’s not logical for most people, especially when you need more than one pair. I’m pretty rough on clothes (thick thigh problems) and can’t shell out that much money on something that might not fit in a few months. I’ve rounded up several under $60 options for work pants and skirts!

J.Crew Factory Winnie Pant with Scalloped Hem: Currently on sale for under $50 and available in red and black and sizes 00-20. I love how the scalloped hem makes them stand out from traditional work slacks.
Liz Claiborne Audra Straight Leg Trousers: Another JCPenney find. I used to exclusively buy my work clothes from JCPenney because it was the only store in my small town! These pants are $33, highly-rated, come in black, charcoal, and navy, and sizes 2-18.
J.Crew Factory Pull-On Pant: You had me at pull-on. If you’re looking for comfort, these are the way to go! They come in black, navy, and pink (perfect for spring!) and sizes 00-20. Under $50.
Riders by Lee Women’s Knit Trousers: A $20 Walmart find. They come in two colors and various sizes. I’m a fan of the quality of this brand.
Anne Klein Compression Slim Leg Pants: These are on sale for $60 – more expensive than the other options on my list, but still cheap for work pants! These come in black and sizes 2-16.
Skinny Bi-Stretch Ankle Pants: If you’re looking to add some color to your wardrobe, the red option is on sale for $40! They come in sizes 00-18.
The Limited Bootcut Pants: The Limited is back! They’ve always been a favorite of mine when it comes to work apparel. These pants are on sale for $40, come in black, navy, brown, and green, and sizes 2-16. Free shipping on all orders!
I prefer pencil skirts because everything else is too short on me – and my clothing needs to be work-appropriate, of course.
Old Navy Jersey Pencil Midi Skirt: These are my favorite skirts ever. I own in six shades, and the green is next on my list! I’m 5’6 and love the length – they’re super comfortable and can be worn year-round (I wear them with tights during the winter months).
Worthington Pencil Skirt: These skirts are on sale for $12! I love the Worthington brand and have several of their pencil skirts. They come in blue, black, green, and checked and sizes 2-20. You won’t find a better deal!
Worthington Full Skirt: Love the red and the bow, and the fact that it’s only $16!
George Women’s Career Suit Skirt: I actually bought one of these skirts when I first started working and was on a major budget – and I still wear it to this day! Great fit and quality, especially considering they’re only $12. Available in black, navy, and gray, and sizes 4-18.
Who What Wear Ruffle Pencil Midi Skirt: When you want something other than a traditional black or gray skirt. Under $30, comes in red and gingham, and sizes 2-16.
Everything listed is under $60 – most under $40!
And, in case you missed it, I shared budget-friendly leggings last week.
