Casual pants are one of those tricky categories to plan cute Fall outfits around. When dressing down, jeans are generally the default. But sometimes, you're just not in the mood for denim, right? On such an occasion during the Autumn season, Fall pants trends like paperbag-waist silhouettes, corduroys, and wide-leg trousers are the answer. And lo and behold, you can shop plenty of stylish options on the cheap from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's. That's right! Cute casual pants abound in the latest September and October deliveries, including styles for curvy shapes, and they all cost $40 or less.

When styling casual pants outfits, there are a few key pieces you'll want in your wardrobe to pair with pants for an effortless feel. T-shirts are, of course, a fail-safe option whether you layer one under a blazer or go for a long-sleeved style. Cute and cozy sweaters always look great with casual pants whether you try the look at work or rock a simple sweater outfit on the weekends. A pretty blouse can totally have a laidback feel with casual pants when sneakers are part of the equation — from chunky styles to a classic pair of Van's, sneakers instantly make a top-and-pants outfit feel easy. Then, there are sweatshirts. They're the ultimate Fall piece when you're after a casual (and ideally cozy!) look.

Ahead, 11 pairs of casual pants to try this Fall, all $40 or less. We're hardly suggesting you give up your jeans (we're not insane!), just consider these styles when you're in need a denim break.
