Shop the trend: How to style corduroy for the cooler weather

Inspired by the retro and vintage flare? Corduroy may just be the trend for you.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

Corduroy, also known as cord, is the definition of retro-chic and is heavily inspired by the 1970s. It's a fabric choice that goes hand-in-hand with autumn and winter. The material is thick and dense, it's wind-proof and works great for layering.

Styling corduroy is actually pretty easy and you don't need to think too hard about your choice of outfit. Throw a chunky knit over a cute corduroy mini-skirt or wear a band t-shirt underneath a warm corduroy jacket. Opt for a rich seasonal colour palette of brown, burgundy and mustard or you can try something different and find corduroy in vivid tones of blue or pink.

To get you started on the trend, we have found some of the best corduroy pieces from sites like Princess Polly, Glassons and Surfstitch.
