We’ve been harping on about corduroy for a while now. Mostly because we're pretty thrilled it's back. From spring’s wide-stride jumbo cord tailoring to summer’s lightweight jackets, the past two seasons have reeled us in, hook, line and sinker. And now, for FW18, the '70s' most-famous fabric has really dialed it up. From slick suiting to so-now animal prints, we bring you three of the greatest ways to wear yours now.
3 WAYS TO WEAR CORDUROY
By Caroline Ferry, October 15, 2018
A corduroy suit may not sound like a go-to going-out outfit. That was until now. Suit up in a sweet shade — lilac — and throw in the animal print of the season — hey, zebra — et voila, you have yourself a BNO special. Swerve any sort of '70s accessories to keep the whole thing ultra-mod, meaning jewels and shoes are best served sparkly.
There's always those weird first few Sundays of fall, when you throw on your favorite track pants and realize absolutely none of your coats look right with such chill wear. It's too warm for that full-on duvet jacket, but your smart coats seem totally wrong too. Enter the lightweight, smart-but-slouchy cord coat. Just add chunky dad sneakers for full new-season excellence.
Skirt suits get supercharged for FW18 with the addition of two very important details: leopard print and cute corduroy. If a co-ord felt too prissy for you last season, the addition of those '70s cord and borg-collar vibes alongside the '80s power print make the whole look feel very fresh and very cool. A ladylike bag and tights just earned this get-up an invite to dinner tonight.
