I Tried the Dream Pant and I’m Never Going Back
Sustainable shopping is incredibly on-trend these days, as we’ve become all too aware of the harms of fast fashion. From underpaid workers and harsh conditions to an ever-revolving cycle that results in millions of tons of waste every year, the fashion industry and its rapid trend cycles are slowly destroying our earth.
Partnership with Everlane
As a busy professional who wants a versatile wardrobe that I can be proud of, I decided to pursue sustainable, eco-friendly fashions myself. I need a pair of casual office pants that can go from day to night, taking me from desk to dinner date. They’ve got to be stylish, but I’ll never sacrifice comfort for a chic look. This seemed nearly impossible until I stumbled upon the Dream Pants from Everlane, my new go-to whenever I’m on the go. Don’t let your busy lifestyle hold you back from high style. It’s possible, I promise.
Introducing: The Dream Pant
With the Dream Pant from Everlane, sustainable slacks just got more stylish. This sleek pair is about as versatile as it gets; they’re sure to become your new go-to for day-to-night chic. Crafted from quality materials, including 58% cotton, 38% modal and 4% elastane for the ideal amount of stretch, these plush slacks have a place in every woman’s wardrobe, taking you from morning meetings to after-work drinks. Known for their tailored look and amazingly soft feel, these pants are the best casual office wear I’ve ever worn, and I’m not kidding. They were so smooth to the touch that I couldn’t resist giving my pair a good rub-down straight out of the box.
High-quality fabrics are crafted at Everlane’s factory in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. The brand is transparent about where their textiles are sourced and their pieces put together, simplifying the sustainable shopping process. This is something I appreciate, and a cause I can feel good about. The Dream Pant has a slim fit at the hips, relaxing through the thigh with tapered legs and a tailored aesthetic. They have an elastic waist for an adaptable fit, and the sweatpant weight cotton blend makes these the most cozy slacks you’ll ever slip into. Side pockets stow all your essentials, and the 27.5″ inseam makes them ideal for wearers of all heights.
Not only that, but every body is welcome because they’re available in an expansive size range extending from xxs to xxxxl. They’re sturdy with premium construction that’s clearly built to last, as you can feel the difference as soon as you slip them on. A plush feel paired with a work-ready look is what makes Everlane’s Dream Pant such a must for the gal on the go.
Putting the Dream Pant to the Test
So, I finally purchased my Everlane Dream Pants and was ready to put them to the test. Were they as good as reviewers claimed they were? It was time to find out, so I spent an entire day running about the city doing my business in these casual office slacks, curious to see how they held up.
My first stop was the morning subway, which I am usually late for catching. I might duck into a coffee shop quick before snagging the next train, so between that and getting ready in the AM, my mornings can get somewhat … hectic. Needless to say, conducting an entire 12-hour-plus routine in one pair of pants means that my chosen pair has to be comfortable and versatile enough to handle multiple settings.
I pulled on my Dream Pants and dashed out the door, surprisingly cozy as I tucked my keys into my bag. I zipped in and out of the coffee shop, made my way down the subway, and took an hour-long excursion to work without my bottom half feeling sweaty or heavy. My slacks were lightweight and plush enough that I had to look down and reassure myself that I was still wearing them.
Next came work. My standard office pants require frequent pulling up throughout the day, and they often over-stretch with buttons snapping or zippers falling off. My Dream Pants required none of that, and they stayed in place while I ran errands for my boss, met with clients, attended a project meeting, tapped away at my desk, and finally, wound down for the day before catching another train for after-work drinks.
Switching my plain top for a frilly button-down blouse and pulling my hair down, I added booties and sipped cocktails in those same cozy trousers. They were holding up well. From there, it was time for dinner, so I pulled my hair into a sleek chignon, grabbed my clutch and hit the town — in the same slacks, if you’re curious. By the time I got back, they were still perfectly comfortable, stayed in place without unnecessary adjustments and fit my body like no other. I literally found my Dream Pants.
After spending an entire day in the Dream Pants, I had made my decision: the reviewers were right. Not only were these pants soft, lightweight and breathable, but they really did feel as cozy as my favorite sweatpants. Combined with a tailored look, elastic waist and roomy pockets, these are versatile pants that you can truly wear anywhere. Whether you dress them up or down, you’re sure to make a statement, as a few girlfriends at dinner thought they were designer and more than one co-worker commented on how put together I looked.
Flexible and comfortable enough to accommodate your own busy schedule, the Dream Pants from Everlane are about to become your new favorite slacks. Versatile enough to go from the office to nights out on the town, these pants are as cozy as they are chic, combining the feel of your favorite sweatpants with the look of a tailored trouser. An excellent option for those seeking a sustainable wardrobe, these pants work for a busy lifestyle and can be styled with an assortment of stunning outfits.
