This Sleeper Pant Trend Always Feels Especially Right This Time of Year

Well, we are finally in the midst of winter, which means it’s time to acquaint ourselves with a new set of trends for the season. Corduroy is one trend that is making its way back around the fashion circuit. While corduroy has technically never been “out of style,” it hasn’t been seen as a wardrobe staple in quite some time. According to fashion people, though, it's time we stop sleeping on corduroy—specifically, corduroy pants. Corduroy is an easy way to add texture to an otherwise simple look. Plus, it’s cozy and durable. What more could you want for winter? As with any pants, fit is key, so make sure to check out our tips for how to find the best pants for a curvy body and our tailoring guide.

Don’t expect to see only corduroy pants, though. Fashion people have recently been styling the fabric in modern, fresh ways, which is helping to shed the retro reputation it carries. Along with pants, it seems like corduroy jackets are also having a moment this season. Hailey Bieber, Alexa Chung, and Katie Holmes have been spotted out in a brown corduroy blazer from Khaite's fall 2022 collection on numerous occasions.

Textured fabrics may seem daunting to style at first, but there are so many ways to incorporate corduroy into your looks, no matter the season. Scroll on for six ways to style this sleeper trend, from winter ensembles to outfits to transition into spring too.
