Yes I did just say Corduroy, the once outdated, strange texture that doesn’t make any garment look good.. Until now.
I’ve seen a few people brave the cord when I’ve been out and about which has peaked my interest somewhat. Now the day has finally come as Topshop are first to catch onto the trend spanning from dresses to jeans. However this new take on cord is fresh and appealing! Hurrah!
1. A-line buttoned skirt £30, a new take on suede and perfect for sunny days or thrown on with tights for the arrival of Autumn. 2. Burgundy skinny jeans £42, coloured jeans are also making their mark on the high street so this tackles both trends in one. 3. Patterned cord crop top £42, is this even cord? Yes! If your not convinced on cord then this is perfect for you. 4. Tan pinafore dress £50, I love the school dress nod in this cute dress, perfect for festivals or layering. 5. Printed 70’s mini skirt £42, again it doesn’t even look like cord, the autumnal colours are perfect for any occasion. 6. Black bomber jacket £48, I love this jacket! It’s cool and would compliment any outfit, ideal to throw on!
It’s not only the high street that’s catching on, recently Miley Cyrus was seen in Free People cord dungarees whilst she was out and about. One for the boys too, Nick Jonas was spotted wearing a cord suit during a recent shoot. Keep your eyes peeled and I’m sure in a few months you too will be sporting something cord.
Do you think cord is fashion genius or fashion faux pas?
