As versatile as your office trousers are, it's not the only one of its kind. In fact, having other equally hardworking pieces in your closet could work to your advantage, because 1) you won't be wearing your favorite slacks to death, and 2) it's just more fun to have more options. Ahead, we list five types of pants you can wear as much as you would your go-to office bottoms:
1. Cigarette pants
The straight, relaxed fit and ankle cut of cigarette pants makes it polished enough for the office yet comfortable enough to be a no-brainer staple for your everyday looks. Think of it as your sweatpants' more structured cousin.

2. White jeans
Denim tends to dress down certain outfits but donning a pair in white could actually have the opposite effect. So if you love the feel of denim but prefer a piece you can easily create monochrome looks with, white jeans could be a true workhorse in your closet.

3. Nude pants
Just like nude-colored heels, nude pants can help elongate your legs and add a more elegant vibe to your 'fit. It's also a good alternative to your go-to black and white bottoms when you want to keep an outfit neutral but want to reduce the color contrast.

4. Faux leather pants
Faux leather pants isn't just for parties! It basically works like a regular pair of black pants, except a little bit more impactful. Wearing it with a white T-shirt, for example, will make the combo look less plain, while pairing it with a blazer adds a fun flair to a structured piece.

5. Wide leg trousers
Wide leg trousers works like a tube of red lipstick. Regardless of what you wear it with, it'll help you make an instant statement and dresses up your entire look.
