If you look past all the animal prints and western vibes you’ll notice another trend that is unavoidable this season: corduroy.
Corduroy was all over the Fall 2018 runways in a variety of shades from rich autumn burgundies, meerkat and ceylon yellow to martini olive and luxe ulta violet. Prada showed their autumn/winter 2018 men’s collection wearing brown cords with chunky patterned knits, Isabel Marant presented models in the most glorious green straight legged trousers and street stylers everywhere have adopted stiff cords as the new denim.
This close cousin of velvet really is THE PERFECT Fall fabric and is a must-have in both mens and womens trends this season. (Corduroy is basically a ridged form of velvet. Both materials are derived from fustian fabric, a heavy cloth woven from cotton- in fact corduroy is also known as ribbed velvet).
With designers delivering so many ways to incorporate the fabric into your wardrobe, whether you rock it in the form of trousers, suiting, matching sets, an a-line skirt or outerwear, there is no excuse to skip this trend.
Stylist Tip: Because Corduroy is so rigid and heavy it works best when you soften it’s appearance by pairing with silky soft fabrics or an oh-so-on-trend fitted turtleneck.
