Fashion Girls Are Ditching Their Jeans For This Cooler Pant


The dressing rut: an all too familiar feeling even the savviest of fashion girls experience. While we’re all for sticking to essentials—especially if that’s what makes you feel most confident—it occasionally takes an unfamiliar piece to shake things up. In the pants department, corduroy pants are undoubtedly the item to try for fall. The style set is proof that straying from your go-to bottoms (like straight-leg or skinny jeans) in favor of a textured alternative feels achingly fresh. From high-waist flares to slouchy wide-legs to tailored crops, the tufted fabric is the perfect pairing with seasonal favorites like denim jackets, knits and, of course, T-shirts, lending a ‘70s vibe with modern sensibility. They come in a range of colors from muted shades to bold hues and they’re super comfortable to boot—how can you not be convinced? Ahead, we narrow in on seven fool-proof ways to style your cords for fall. If you’re without a pair, shop our edit of the coolest styles—starting at just $60—and start working them into your wardrobe ASAP.
