I love corduroy as a casual trouser for the fall and winter, as seen here and here! This boot cut pair is very flattering and pairs perfectly with a blazer and blouse. I went with duck boots since it's been fairly rainy here in Pittsburgh. For the spring, I'm thinking these cords with a striped tee and white sneakers would make a fun nautical outfit... we shall see.
Oh, and be sure to vote on yesterday's coat rental post!
