Corduroy is back in a big way for fall. It’s one of those fabrics you either love or hate. Me? I’m on the fence. It’s been called the poor man’s velvet which may be why I’ve never embraced it. I never found velvet lacking and thought corduroy was better for men. My memories of corduroy are of a stiff, unforgiving fabric that binds when you sit down.
Corduroy is different this fall. Many of the fabrics have stretch woven in which gives it an all-new softness and comfort factor. I love the punch of red on the collar back on this blazer. Here’s the matching pant so you can wear them as a suit. They also comes in blush pink which takes it as far away from men’s wear as you can get.
This Long and Lean Jacket would be great over jeans or casual pants all winter. You could even wear it as a suit with these pants. I haven’t embraced cropped flares but the tall version has a 29″ inseam which is full length for me.
Booties and shoes are a non-preppy way to inject some corduroy into your look.
Handbags are popping up in corduroy too.
I’m looking to add corduroy to my wardrobe but will be easing into it easily. Is corduroy part of your wardrobe?
Thanks for reading and be sure to wear what makes you feel confident.
