If you sit at a desk for work, you know the struggle: seams digging everywhere and a waistband that won’t quit. And even if you have a job that requires you to be on your feet all day, a pair of pants that are easy to move around in can make all the difference. We all got a taste of how blissful working from home in our athleisure wear can be, and there’s really no turning back now. The bar has been raised: we want work pants that are as comfy as sweatpants — and Target’s top-rated work joggers get the job done with both style and grace.

A New Day High-Rise Ankle Jogger Pants rise to the challenge so well, they’re not only hired, but but they deserve a raise and a promotion. These straight-leg slacks are so soft and stretchy, shoppers are proclaiming, “you need these in your life!” The pleated, zip-up pants are office-appropriate and can be dressed up or down. Tuck in a blouse, pop on a pair of loafers and you’re ready to lead a board meeting or head to an after-work event looking sharp and professional, while secretly feeling like you never got out of your pajamas.

These “go-to” pants even have pockets, just like your favorite pair of work pants, and they rock an elasticized waistband and ankles, giving them a more slimming effect and a look that finally blends with your commuter style, too. They’re right at home when paired with running shoes or tennis shoes — perhaps the most versatile piece in your entire work wardrobe. And these Target work joggers come in four colors, including standard black as well as grey plaid or brown plaid — which read as tweed — and cheerful teal.

A New Day High-Rise Ankle Jogger Pants come in sizes that run the gamut, too — they’re in stock in 0 to 26. An inseam of 28 inches makes sure they won’t dig in the worst of places, either — I think you know what I mean. They’re fully machine washable and can go in the dryer, so they’re a cinch to care for at home, no dry cleaner required. “Easy to pair with different styles (sweaters, tees) & colors of tops (grey, black, tan). Snag a pair before they’re gone,” noted a fan.

These high-rise pants are also comfortable for your budget: at an easy, breezy 30 bucks, you won’t feel bad about snagging more than one. Because you have bigger fish to fry and no time to waste focusing on how badly you wish you could rip off an uncomfortable pair of pants when you’re trying to perfect your Excel game or secure a new client. Now, we can’t make any promises about that uncomfortable bra, but at these jogger pants will let you make it through the day blissfully — and don’t be surprised if they see you through a post-work nap, too.
