Have you noticed that corduroy is super hot this year? I’ve been seeing corduroy everywhere when I go shopping. Jackets, trousers, skirts, even shoes! Nearly everything can be, and is, made of corduroy. Corduroy began making it’s way back on the fashion scene back in 2017 and has been steadily picking up steam ever since. I predict that this year we will see corduroy at peak levels. Are you ready to try this trend? You should be! Corduroy is no longer dated and unflattering; with new shapes and colors on the scene this fabric has gotten a 21st century update. Let’s check it out!
1. Corduroy jackets
The first item I highly recommend is a corduroy jacket. Outerwear is the easiest way to break into this trend and the heavier material of corduroy lends itself well to cold weather wear. A stylish corduroy jacket easily pairs well with items already in your wardrobe and allows you to dip your toes in the corduroy trend without committing to a full corduroy look.
For cooler months, you could opt for a corduroy jacket with sherpa lining which is both warm and chic. Get another one for your boyfriend/husband to make the perfect couple outfits!
2. Corduroy skirts
Corduroy mini skirts (especially in neutral shades) are the perfect throwback item to create a retro look. You may even be able to steal one from your mom’s closet if she held onto it all this time. If you’re feeling daring you can opt for a brighter option with a matching blazer like the blue suit above.
3. Corduroy flare pants
Now that you feel comfortable with my subtle corduroy additions, go big with corduroy pants! Rocking this look is more of a commitment as corduroy flares are likely to be the cornerstone of your look. Commit to this and build your look around it. With flare pants you want to keep your upper body fitted to balance the larger proportions on the bottom. The best way to rock this trend is to opt for a flare pant with a high waist and make sure that it is still fitted even though it is a flare style.
You can also opt for a pair of cropped corduroy flares if you’re feeling really daring. Pair this look with some cute ankle booties.
