There are a ton of corduroy pants out there right now, but it can be a bit confusing. Skinny? Wide leg? Flare? Straight leg? Cropped? I also feel like some styles are reading a bit young to me — I would still wear these Lucky cords, for example, but the shoes they have them styled with remind me so much of my college years.

On the flip side, there are some great stalwarts out there (I’ve always loved KUT from the Kloth cords, for example) that maybe feel a bit too stodgy. And then there are the $200+ pairs of cords, such as FRAME or Favorite Daughter, that are fabulous but wow, that’s expensive for cords.

These pictured cords from Mango seem to walk a line between all of that. They’re flares but not too wide. I think of Mango as a younger brand but nothing about the styling screams “teenager” to me. The cords are actually a deep wine color, but in a lot of light I think they’ll read as the very trendy brown. Finally, the $79 price tag is great.

They’re $79 at Nordstrom and Mango (where they have a light beige as well), available in sizes 1-14. If you want more sizes, I still really like the KUT from the Kloth ones, which are also $79, but come in regular, petite, and plus sizes depending on cut.
