Why Corduroy Is The Coolest Fabric To Wear Right Now

Seventies-inspired clothes have populated the runways for the past several years – flares, platforms and patchwork have slowly become staples in our wardrobe. This year, however, it’s all about corduroy. But whether you’re keen to channel the seventies or not, corduroy is one of the best fabrics for adding interest to an outfit. From pincord to wide-wale corduroy, the texture and depth it brings elevates a look instantly. I adored the dusty shade of salmon pink corduroy at Nina Ricci and Mulberry, while Marc Jacob’s rich merlot coloured cord suit was simply stunning. There are plenty of colour options in stores right now, from pastel shades to earthy brick. Take your pick.

Lemon yellow corduroy is a brave choice certainly. I love how this pair of sherbet yellow trousers have been unapologetically paired with the same shade of yellow on top. To prevent the look from becoming too saccharine, a heritage check coat adds a much-needed mannish touch.

This a great look. It nods to the 1970s, but feels ultra modern because of the cut of the trousers (not too flared) and the simple styling (a white T-shirt brings a simple modernity to most pieces).

I keep toying with the idea of dungarees… can I or can’t I at 43?! Maybe the subtly of these black corduroy dungarees could ease me into this trend?

If you fancy trying a head-to-toe tonal look, these blue cords would work beautifully with indigo denim. I like the high waist and slightly cropped cut, which is great for showing off new winter boots. Wear these trousers with a pair of velvet boots for a full-on textural look.
