Meet your new favorite summer-to-fall pants.
If you work in an office during the summer, you probably understand the struggle of getting dressed for two climates: the outside heat and the inside tundra. While fall will be here before we know it, we still have a couple months left of navigating that awkward temperature difference. That means light layers will be your best friend during this transitional time, and a pair of breezy trousers makes an excellent starting point for a summer-to-fall ‘fit.
Not only do trousers look sophisticated, but they have a loose-fitting silhouette that’ll keep you cool outside, while protecting you from the air conditioning inside. Plus, most pairs are cute enough to wear beyond just the workday; throw them on with a cropped tee and kitten heels, and you’re ready for a night out. Of course, Amazon has plenty of budget-friendly options, and we rounded up the six chicest pairs for less than $50.

SweatyRocks High-Waisted Trousers
These $40 high-waisted trousers are as classic as they get and come in 31 colors and patterns. Made from a blend of polyester and elastane, the machine-washable pants have a zippered fly with a button closure, flattering pleats down the front, and convenient side pockets. A shopper confirmed they’re “so light and comfy” and “can easily be dressed up or down,” making them perfect for a day-to-night look.
Heymoments Wide-Leg Trousers With Belt
Another top-rated style, these paper-bag-waist pants have a tie belt on the front and elastic on the back. They’re made from soft polyester with a gauze-like finish and are available in sizes S through XXL. One reviewer wears them at least once every couple of weeks because of “how comfortable and stretchy they are for the office job.” Throw the pajama-like pants on with a simple tee, blazer, and low heels to create a stylish and cozy work outfit.
The Drop Sullivan Silky Stretch Trouser
If you already have your basic trousers covered, go with this silky pair from The Drop that’ll spice up your typical office looks. They have elastic on the back for a comfortable fit, along with a hook-and-eye closure on the front, zipper fly, side pockets, and a wide-leg shape. The pants are available in sizes XXS through 5X and three colors, including true black and two bright shades. They’d look great with a basic tee and cardigan or styled with a matching silky blazer.
