These blackwatch plaid pants are from Old Navy. They are pull on pants that are the equivalent in comfort to pajamas. They do have a nicer cut and fit than pajamas. These are super soft and cozy.

I dressed these up with heels, but you could dress them down too. Blackwatch plaid pants look stylish with loafers if you prefer flats and you could even wear them with your favorite sneakers for a casual look.

I paired them with this side knot top by Lark and Ro from Amazon. This top is basically a tee but nice enough for the office. A black cardigan finishes off this look.
