3 WAYS TO WEAR CORDUROY

By Caroline Ferry, 15 October 2018

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 AW18, the 70s' most-famous fabric has really dialled it up. From slick suiting to so-now animal prints, we bring you three of the greatest ways to wear yours now.

Tailor made

A corduroy suit may not sound like a go-to going-out outfit. That was until now. Suit up in a sweet-as 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.

Cosy corner

There's always those weird first few Sundays of autumn, when you throw on your favourite track pants and realise 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 trainers for full new-season excellence.

Plush pair

Skirt suits get supercharged for AW18 with the addition of two very important details: leopard print and cute-as 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 20 denier tights just earned this getup an invite to dinner tonight.
