Trending Now: Corduroy
There’s another trend that is proving to be as popular as animal print this season and that trend is corduroy. Although some of us associate this material with items we have seen in our grandparents wardrobes, the much loved 70’s style fabric has been given a revamp for fall/ winter 2018, and we have to say, it’s never looked more stylish.
Every fashionista is buying into this trend and we predict corduroy to be a staple in almost every wardrobe this autumn, whether it’s a pair of trousers, a skirt, jacket or dress, you will certainly not be out of options; if you’re feeling brave enough, you can even try out a cord co-ord (which we’ve seen all over the catwalk) for a full on 70’s inspired look.
Earthy tones such as beiges, browns and rustic orange were popular among catwalk designers such as Calvin Luo, Dondup, Lucio Vanotti and Vivienne Tam, however other designers such as Victoria Beckham, Mara Hoffman and Daizy Shely decided on a pastel colour palette. See our favourite looks below.

Corduroy is the new denim
It’s time to say goodbye to your denim jacket and make way for a stunning new cord blazer or jacket! If you’re keen to buy into this trend but would rather not buy a new wardrobe around it, you can find a jacket in a style and colour that suits you, which you can then pair with bottoms, tops and shoes you may already own. For a stylish yet effortless look, wear with a plain t-shirt and jeans.
If you like to wear trousers, a pair of corduroy bottoms can be easily adapted into your current wardrobe; they look just as great with a t-shirt as they do with a blouse, just ensure you get the right shape trouser for your body and mix with other complimentary colours.
THE NEW DRESS
Cord dresses can now be seen almost everywhere on the high street, particularly pinafore style dresses. They work well in winter as you can wear a jumper underneath and layer up with tights, cardigains and coats/ jackets.
If you’re feeling a little more daring this winter, we suggest trying a corduroy co-ord; the high street has a huge offering in blazers, jackets, skirts, shirts and trousers. These items also work very well as separates and can be mixed and matched with other items in your wardrobe. However if you don’t want to spend too much on a trend that you’re only going to wear one season, you can find items in stores such as Primark, H&M, Zara, Topshop, Urban Outfitters and & Other Stories.
