Go Corduroy of Go Home

So you want to be fashionable, but also keep warm? Add a hint of bookish charm, and you’ve successfully described corduroy. This is the material that rules the season.

Velvet used to be so popular over a couple of previous seasons. But now, an enhanced version is taking over and it is none other than corduroy.

If you haven’t heard about it before, corduroy is a type of textile which has a similar quality to velvet, only it has a signature pattern called wale. These resemble wooly cords with channels between them.

The textile is so durable that it has been the main choice of people who like to invest in a piece of clothing which will last for several seasons. Mostly, you will find pants and jackets made of corduroy, but since recently there are skirts, shirts, as well as coats and dresses.

Although aesthetically it has been connected to the 70s, it had quite a momentum on 2018 runways, with Prada, Marc Jacobs and Nina Ricci leading the way, both during Women and Men’s Fashion Week.

Among celebrities, there are many who were or still are madly in love with corduroy, such as Alexa Chung, Jeanne Damas, Andrew Garfield, Tom Cruise and the eternal Jane Birkin and Paul Newman.

Are you up for joining the corduroy fan base?

Here are some items you can buy.

Oversized corduroy jacket has that boyish, but also nerdy vibe. In the best way possible, of course.

Choose pastel colors for your corduroy jacket and be a delicate, yet enduring little flower.

There is nothing that channels an art/literature student in Paris better than a corduroy mini skirt. Choose neutral colors and pair it with a sweater, or better yet, a white shirt.
