I feel bad for corduroy. It has to be one of the most neglected and under-appreciated fabrics of all time. This season it’s about time we shed our outdated view of cord and see it through a contemporary lens.
It’s time to make cord great again. Here is my guide on how to wear corduroy this season.
Start easy with a corduroy jacket to ease you into the cord trend.
Introduce cord into your streetwear look with trousers. Roll up the hem and pair with – you guessed it – white socks and trainers. Change the look by tucking in the t-shirt with the hem having a slight crop.
3. SMART CASUAL
For a casual weekend look, style cord trousers with a roll neck jumper and your favourite winter outerwear piece. Play with colour by contrasting the colour of the cord trousers with the knitwear.
Switch up the footwear for smart desert boots.
Switch to a blazer for a touch of formality or go full on cord look opting for a suit.
Add a cap for a subtle injection of corduroy.
Strike a cord by styling in a monochromatic way by choosing an autumnal colour.
