Go wide or go home seems to be the message this fall. Today, I’m sharing a fabulous new pair of wide-leg corduroy pants that feel fresh, new, and different from what we have been used to. Check out these fun pants that are super modern and cool!
The Trendy Silhouette
I was cleaning out my closet a few weeks ago, getting ready for fall, and trying to decide what to do with my skinny jeans. Although we’ve been hearing that skinny jeans are very much on the back burner now, I was hesitant to tuck them away for good. Then I was out shopping at Anthropologie and saw these pants, and everything changed!

A Different Feel to Today’s Cords
These fabulous Fall corduroy pants are as wide as wide can be. Once I slipped them on, every other kind of pant felt suddenly outdated! I love this change of style. These cute, stretchy cords fit snugly through the hips and flare out super wide like sailor pants. The patch pockets are darling, and wearing these pants feels fabulous and fun! If any had told me that I’d be wearing the same pants in 2023, that I wore in the 70’s, I’d laugh. But they are sort of similar except for one major thing …S-T-R-E-C-H!
All the latest cords have plenty of it and it makes them easy to wear and super comfy!
New Ways to Style Cords
Another difference is how we’re styling them now. One popular look is to pair wide-leg cords with a mock turtleneck. I picked up this luxurious-looking brown cashmere mock neck, which looks rich with rusty brown cords.
I’ve always loved a mock neck because it looks minimalistic and modern. It’s more flattering on gals our age because it doesn’t sit high under the neck and swallow you up or push up loose skin on aging necks. The other things I really love about this top is the bold shoulder. Even though it’s a sleeveless sweater, it still gives you a broad look across the top that narrows in like a V to your waist and is so flattering.
This is a causally elegant-looking outfit, so I chose jewelry to match. I’m wearing the Forme collection from my favorite jewelry designer, Dean Davidson. The brushed gold swirl cuff and gold drop earrings are classically French, inspired by Dean’s trip to Paris. I love them because they are sophisticated, understated, and modern.
These cute chocolate brown booties are perfect when you are trying to create an elegant monochromatic look like I am. They’re from Amazon – The Drop ( the influencer inpspired line by Amazon) and they are a really good buy!
You need a bit of a heel with wide-leg pants like this, and these are not too high but high enough to make the pants look sleek. The pointy toe also helps give that elegant, long, lean look.
