It’s time to take on the business-core trend and don a pair of wide-leg pants to the office (but in a fresh, non-stuffy, modern way). Whether you go for a slouchy, pleated style like our pick from Everlane or a subtler, cropped one from Quince, there are many different ways to tap into this silhouette.

Wide-Leg Jeans

Another fun way to experiment with the wide-leg pant silhouette is with denim. A good pair of jeans is a core fall wardrobe staple and can be dressed up or down with tops, shoes, and accessories. So open your eyes to wide-leg jeans with ankle-length or floor-grazing lengths, solid or distressed washes, and flared or bootcut legs.
