Corduroy pants are essential during the fall and winter months, so here is a guide on what to wear with corduroy pants to help you create some super stylish outfits!

Corduroy has a long and rich history, dating back to ancient Egypt, but it was during the 18th century in England that corduroy became more commonly worn, predominately by men. In the form of pants, shirts, and jackets. However, it was in the 1970s that corduroy became incredibly popular and was often worn by men and women all over the world.

Corduroy is still super popular today, especially corduroy, which is a little thicker than cotton or denim, helping to keep you warm during colder months. To help you style these pants, we have created a guide on what to wear with corduroy pants, with plenty of cute and cozy outfits!

This list includes smarter looks that are ideal for work as well as casual outfits for relaxed weekends – so let’s get started!

What To Wear With Corduroy Pants

1. Button-up shirts

For a classic and sophisticated look, pair your corduroy pants with a button-up shirt. You could opt for a more relaxed, linen white shirt styled with boots and a sweater over the shoulders for a weekend look, or go for a more starched shirt that would be ideal for a workday – so stylish!

Complete the look with neutral accessories, including a tan handbag and taupe loafers.
