Nothing says fall like the textured fabrics of corduroy, tweed, cashmere, and leather. While it’s not quite cool enough to slip into your favourite worn-in leather jacket or borrowed-from-the-boys tweed blazer, corduroy trousers, like the Toothpick Cord from J. Crew, is a great way to transition into fall dressing.
The thing I love best about the Toothpick Cord is its modern, flattering fit. Similar to skinny jeans, the Toothpick Cord fits snug throughout, but the soft stretchy cord fabric makes these pants as comfy as a pair of leggings. The cords come in a ton of colors, including this eye-catching neon fuchsia (a great way to continue summer’s neon denim trend) and sea-worthy pale turquoise, as well as more classic fall hues, like rich cabernet and neutral saddle.
Style these cords right now with a pair of flats or loafers and your favourite deep-V-neck T-shirt. When the temperature drops, swap flats for a pair of desert booties and throw a chunky knit on top.
The Toothpick Cord is available at J. Crew for $98.
