Sure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.
There are a bunch of flannel dress pants out there right now, so I thought I’d do a little roundup! I always think flannel dress pants are great for winter because they’re warm AND soft, unlike some of the other warm wool blends that can be a bit itchy.
What are your favorite warm winter pants to wear to work? Do you have any flannel dress pants in your rotation at the moment?

Great Flannel Dress Pants for Women in 2023-24
These pull-on flannel pants from Everlane look great, and they come in two colors: heather charcoal and a beigey “tiger’s eye.” They’re available in sizes XXS-XL, and marked down to $104.
Banana Republic Factory
I’m not a huge fan of the styling on these pants from Banana Republic Factory, but I guess we shouldn’t hold that against the pants. They come in three colors, in regular and petite sizes 0-14, and have a matching (double-breasted) blazer. With today’s sale they come down to under $30.
Loft often has flannel dress pants, actually — sure enough, they have a few colors in stock, including this lovely caramel color. These are available in regular, petite, and tall sizes and are under $35 today with code.
Ann Taylor hasn’t had flannel dress pants for a while, if memory serves, but they do have a few options right now. I like these “smokey gray heather” ones, available in classic and petite sizes 0-14. They’re down to lucky sizes, and also on sale — originally $119, they come down to $60 with today’s deal.
Theory’s Treeca pull-on pants have been around for years, and it’s nice to see them in a number of flannel options right now. They come in four solid colors, as well as a pinstripe wool flannel. They were $215-$295 but are now marked to $96-$221; they come in sizes 0-14.
(Thoughts on the shiny silver Mary Jane heels, ladies? For my $.02, I’d wear these with a bootie.)
These pinstriped flannel pants from Vince are my personal favorites of the lot, but then I prefer non-pleated pants. They’re $395 at Nordstrom and down to limited options in some sizes… but note that Vince has a number of flannel pant options at the moment, including a plus-size pull-on trouser. (And an unfortunate cargo trouser? I think the cargo pant trend needs to be a post on its own…)
The most expensive pant we’ll include today is this lovely pair from St. John for $695. Some sizes are already down to limited quantities, so take a look now if you’re interested. (Just as a side note, this is a great example of what I often call “shades of shades” dressing — the model’s outfit is all gray, but because there are slightly different shades, it looks interesting and sophisticated.)
