As you probably already know, I wear a lot of denim, but sometimes even I want to change it up a bit. I recently found these corduroy flares at Nordstrom, and they’re exactly what I need when I want to give my denim a break this fall.

I had several pairs of corduroy skinnies that I wore a lot a few years ago, but this is my first pair of corduroy flares… maybe ever. It’s the perfect modern update for this classic fall/winter fabric.
These are a fine-wale corduroy, so they don’t add extra bulk, and they come in this versatile Sand color as well as a really pretty shade of brown they call Cedar.
They’re soft and stretchy and comfortable, and the 10 1/4″ front rise is high enough to hold in the fluff but not so high as to be awkward to style.
With a 33″ inseam, they pair perfectly with my Sam Edelman Western Boots with a 3 1/2″ heel.
FIT TIP: Generally, you want your flares to be from 1/4″ — 1″ off the ground with shoes on.
These pants are true to size, or size down if in between; I’m in the 6, for reference. The boots are also true to size or size down if in between. The 8 is plenty roomy, and they’re also very comfortable.
I styled two looks with this boot and pant combo. First, I topped them off with this cozy funnel neck sweater in a gorgeous shade of teal. It comes in a bunch of colors, if you want other options, and it runs true to size with a relaxed fit.
I also styled a second look with a plaid blazer coat. I’m loving all the shades of brown for fall!
Even though they call this a blazer, it’s pretty heavy to wear indoors; it would be more of an outerwear piece for me.

Here’s the outfit without the jacket. It’s simple, but I like the neutral look, and the jewelry brings attention up towards the face. Both pieces are the Madewell brand, and I linked similar above.
Here’s how the jacket looks buttoned up, because I know you guys like to see it both ways.
It’s a little big on me, even in the small, so definitely size down if ordering. It also comes in 3 other color ways, if you aren’t into brown. If in doubt, always order both sizes. With Nordstrom’s free shipping and free returns, you have nothing to lose.
And of course, you always have the option of their BOPUS (Buy Online Pick Up in Store) and contactless curbside pickup options. If you aren’t already a Nordy Club member, be sure to sign up so you can start earning points toward Nordstrom Notes when you shop!
