Ever since the ’70s revival hit fashion hard a few years ago, we’ve fully embraced a handful of fabrics and silhouettes that would be considered total throwbacks not too long ago. But now? Flared jeans and platform shoes are treated as wardrobe staples. As fall and winter settle in, there’s one element of this trend that feels particularly appropriate: corduroy. And it’s never felt more current.
It helps that during New York Fashion Week designers like Ulla Johnson and Anna Sui showed overcoats, jackets, and skirts made from the fabric in warm marigold and orange hues, giving us updated inspiration for how to wear corduroy.
Off the runway, there were plenty of other examples of corduroy styling that can inform the way you incorporate it into your wardrobe this fall and winter. Below, some ideas...
Start with a pair of wide-leg corduroy trousers. For a top, layer a white turtleneck underneath a plaid button-down. Then for footwear, you can go for strappy sandals (if it’s not too cold out, of course) or a pair of heeled ankle boots.
You can also mix different fabric textures, like corduroy pants with a flannel or velvet puffer.
Since you can find corduroys in pretty much every color in the rainbow, have some fun with it. There’s a lot of opportunity for unexpected colorblocking—like mustard yellow with teal blue.
Don’t sleep on corduroy outerwear: A bold blazer adds a layer of sophistication to your look (even if it’s just a sweatshirt and jeans).
Corduroy overalls worn over an oversized sweater gives definition without taking away any of the comfort or ease.
Lean into the ’70s vibe with a corduroy suit. To make it feel modern, wear it with a bright, colorful organza button-down and chunky sneakers.
