Are Corduroy Pants in Style & What Do You Wear Them With?

Corduroy pants have always felt like sister pants to jeans, but not quite as cool. However, lately, that seems to be changing, and the newest styles are making me look twice. If you’ve also noticed a lot more corduroy and wondered if corduroy pants are in fashion in 2023, the answer is yes! Here’s a look at some surprisingly chic corduroy pants and ways to style them.


Corduroy - Black

Baby Bootcut Corduroy Flares

I love jeans that give me mile-long legs and a curvy shape, which is why I’m a big fan of the baby bootcut style. These pants are slim through the thighs and gently flare out at the knee to a perfect flare that is not too wide or narrow but just perfect. There are lots of jeans like this. But now we’re seeing cords, too, like these black beauties. They’re made from soft pinwale corduroy with a hint of stretch and sit mid-rise at your waist. 

I love the sleek look. If you think cords are bulky, think again. These are anything but. I’ve paired them with this beautiful ombre cardigan and black accessories for a modern city look.

Corduroy - Red

Straight Leg Cords 

One of the great new things we see with corduroy is the many styles and colors to choose from. It’s not just your basic neutrals anymore. These plum-colored corduroy pants from Wit and Wisdom caught my eye because they are unique. They’re a straight-leg style, and the fresh, pinky/mauve color is Royal Rum. ( They also come in Steel Gary and Blanched Almond) 

I love the Royal Rum with this creamy off-white sweater, fab mules, and this stamped bucket bag. It has a white winter vibe but a nice wash of pink tones on the bottom half.

Wide Leg Corduroy Pants

Remember when corduroy pants used to be kind of thick and stiff? Well, no longer. These funky, wide-leg cords are stretchy and comfy.  They also are fine-wale corduroy, which means the texture is visibly smaller and softer than that of your average cords—and a whole lot cuter. I’ve paired them with this soft boho leather back, a cropped utility jacket, and these earthy suede booties. It’s a high-texture outfit that is casual but looks nicely pulled together.
