Looking for an NYC store that sells Katharine Hepburn style pants

I'm looking for brick and mortar stores in NYC that sell Katharine Hepburn style pants, fancy enough for a wedding.

I can spend up to $200 and am particularly interested in interesting colors. I fell in love with a deep turquoise pair I found in the East Village, but they sadly only had one (too small) size. I don't have enough time to do any online shopping so am only looking for stores that I can visit in person. Thanks in advance for your help!

Very wide-legged trousers aren't super-in right now but I see some things on the Aritzia website that might work for you, depending? They have an NYC store.

I believe h&m has some right now, but idk how fancy they are.

I've seen plenty of moderately wide-legged and/or high-waisted pants on the racks lately. I think your bigger problem is going to be finding something that's not cropped. There's a COS, & Other Stories, and Zara right next door to each other at 42nd and Fifth Ave, I'd spend a few minutes sifting through their websites (saw a couple possible things on the Stories website), make a list, and blitz through all three in one trip.

I think these from Anthropologie are gorgeous and they have a lot of other wide-legged pants as well on the website, though mostly cropped. You could call the stores and ask what's in stock.

Depends on how tall you are, but, if you're on the shorter side, Reformation might be a good bet. I just got a pair of very wide-legged pants that are "cropped" but since I'm 5'4", they're full length on me. They have a ton of options right now if you're not set on having cuffed pants (which is peak Katharine Hepburn, in my mind).

On the less expensive end, NY & Co had a ton of high-waisted, cuffed, wide legged pants on their website a couple months ago, so I'd bet they're still in stores now.

The glorious J. Peterman Company often carries pants like this, it looks like they have some silk ones right now.

Eileen Fisher carries wide-legged trousers.
