I don’t think we’ve ever had a Workwear Report on Express’ two very popular pants styles — the Editor and the Columnist — but we’ve mentioned them in our various roundups like machine washable pants for work and the best work pants. These have been around forever — I swear I remember them from when I was in college — and they continue to win rave reviews. Granted, they’re not made from the most luxe fabric, but they do tend to fit well and they come in a lot of colors and sizes. They’re available in regular, short, and long, and Express also has a separate petite section. I think the mid-rise ankle Columnist pant looks great, but note that the Columnist also has bootcut and low-rise versions. My understanding is that the Columnist fit is a little tighter through the hip and thigh, whereas the Editor isn’t quite as fitted. Pictured: Mid Rise Ankle Columnist Pant

2019 Update: We’re adding these pants to our Workwear Hall of Fame because after years they’re still around, coming out in new colors and prints, and getting rave reviews.
