HOW TO WEAR CORDUROY FOR AW18

By Lakeisha Goedluck, 1 December 2018

By now, your wardrobe should be full of fleecy half-zips and cosy jumpers. But if you really want to prove your prowess when it comes to picking steezy textured pieces for Autumn/Winter 18, you’ve got to stock up on corduroy cuts. From standout trews to a slick tracksuit, here’s how to style cord garms with finesse this season.

The easiest way to inject your wardrobe with some texture is to add a corduroy jacket to your rotation. Resist the urge to go for a dark-coloured layer and pick a jacket in a pastel hue instead. Stick to a soft palette with the rest of your outfit – a pale-pink tee should do the trick. On your bottom half, a pair of dark-wash jeans will balance out your ’fit. Chunky dad-approved creps with an outsole that matches your tee will make for the freshest finish.

Looking for a way to stay warm from head to toe and still look fly? Bag yourself a tracksuit, mate – but make sure it’s a cord one. This multi-coloured two-piece from Billionaire Boys Club is best styled with laid-back pieces. Go for a simple black vest or don a roll-neck if it’s chilly outside. Throw on a bucket hat and opt for all-black retro-style trainers to tie into your streetwear-led ensemble.

Now that it’s December, you’ve probably got several parties lined up. Whether your office ’do is right around the corner or you just want to look nice for your nan on Christmas Day, it’s important to look the part – and that’s where these standout corduroy trousers come in. To offset the subtle pale-pink shade of your trews, team them with a grey roll-neck and round off your look with a pair of polished black loafers and a matching belt.
