A Class In Corduroy: How To Wear The Fabric Of Spring 2018

Velvet has had it’s moment in the spotlight for long enough - it has now been usurped by another seventies staple - corduroy.

Corduroy in every colour is here for your spring wardrobe - be it as a trouser, jumpsuit, skirt or jacket. Like linen, this fabric is adaptable to both warm and cool climates (read: perfect for British springtime).

Corduroy styles are cropping up all over the high street and a new Stockholm-based fashion brand, The Cords & Co, is dedicated to focusing on this one material and is bringing a fresh wave of wearing and living in corduroy (plus it ships free to the UK).

Building a corduroy revolution, the brand’s focus is not obsessive. Its reinvention of “velvet’s ribbed cousin”, fits in with a millennial crowd looking to remake past trends - only better.

Here’s a few ways to style your cords.

Okay, okay, if an entire outfit of corduroy is too much, a cute twist to a look is to match your socks with your cord bottoms. Matchy, but not too matchy.
