The air is getting cooler, the leaves are turning.. fall is here! Time to put away the shorts and flip-flops and make way for your fall wardrobe - coats, long sleeve shirts, boots, and an item we want to give a special shoutout to - the trouser. With so many different ways to wear them, trousers will go a long way in your wardrobe and suit many different occasions. If fall has you half as excited as we are, you’re ready to create some inspiring looks for autumn.
With a new season comes new possibilities for your attire. There is really nothing like a solid fall wardrobe, and we can make it happen. Let’s talk about what constitutes a great pair of trousers. First off: the fit. To be sure, you want to start with a pair of trousers that feel good and provide maximum comfort while complimenting you.
The fabric you choose makes a big difference, and at Lands’ End, we know the value in a functional, high-quality material that will move with you. We have a large variety of trousers offered in an array of fabrics and styles, so we trust you’ll find something you love. We highly recommend women's corduroy pants for a strong fabric with just the right amount of give. Pair them with with a cashmere sweater or silk shirt and chunky boots, and you have your first outfit! This one can work anywhere - work, a dinner out, or a family outing.
A pair of trousers is an empty slate with a world of possibility, but there’s no need to get overwhelmed - we’ve got some ideas to get you going. Many of the trousers we offer, such as high-waisted pants provide the answer to all-day comfort - elastic waistbands (you’re welcome). A turtleneck tucked into the trousers paired with a dainty necklace looks elegant and professional for work. If a turtleneck will be too warm for your place of work, pair the high-waisted trousers with a nice shirt and a wrapped dress left open to serve as a shawl. For another professional look, try slim-fitting pants with a flowy blouse and flats—as you can see the outfit combinations are endless. No matter what the day holds for you, trousers can be a great way to go.
Fall is the perfect time to take a stroll through your local farmers’ market. The intense heat of summer is behind you, and it’s that golden season yet again - sweater weather. We’ve been waiting all year! Autumn brings a beautiful variety of incredible produce, including kale, squashes, beets, carrots, and potatoes, all of which combine to make delicious soups, salads, and roasted dishes that will provide nutritious meals for your family. Connecting with the local farmers that provide these gorgeous veggies will make the dishes all the more delicious.
What you wear to the Farmer’s Market can make a big difference. We love a well-paired sweater and trouser combination for the market - it is a match made in heaven. Cozy, warm, and fashionable, our women’s sweaters come in a variety of fabrics and styles to match your vibe. Whether you want an open cardigan, scoop neck, or sweater vest, we’re here for it.
Try an oversized sweater with straight or flare-leg pants. The French tuck and neatly rolled sleeves serve to balance a more billowy sweater. Pair this outfit with your favorite boot and a vintage bag, and you’re ready to pick out produce like a boss.
Apple picking at your local orchard is a classic fall activity that will get the whole family involved. There’s just nothing like going to the source and picking apples right from the tree. We won’t tell if you eat an apple—or three—while out in the orchard. Take advantage of local treats; many local orchards offer desserts like apple fritters or pumpkin donuts to share their harvest.
A pair of women's joggers look great paired with a fitted tee, white sneakers, and a denim jacket while you’re out running errands.
After you’ve checked all the to-dos off your list and you’ve come home, kick off your sneakers, switch the denim for a sweatshirt, and this same outfit will be equally useful curled up on the couch. Whether you’re on the pumpkin spice latte train or would prefer a hot apple cider, there’s nothing through cozying up with a warm drink on a crisp fall day.
Whether your favorite part of fall is picking out a pumpkin to carve or sipping a warm drink from the comfort of your living room, at Lands’ End, we have you covered when it comes to pants. We hope these styling tips have been helpful and that you feel inspired to wear your trousers with confidence. Happy fall!
