Deep hues, cozy fabrications, and made-to-layer textiles are all the rage for fall—no surprises there! However, one unexpected statement fabric making a comeback this season is corduroy, thanks to a strong revival during February’s Fall/Winter 2018 Fashion Week shows. Designer brands like Gucci, Prada, and Marc Jacobs all touched on the trend. Current interpretations of the texture-based statement are on our radar for being flattering, versatile, and just plain fun to wear. With a few styling tips, such as balancing textures and adding unexpected colors, you can test drive corduroy in a way that looks modern and chic. Browse our favorite picks below and learn how to wear fall’s richest revived textile. 

Shift into neutral

Capture a casual back-to-school vibe in earth-toned corduroy basics. The bulky, textured nature of this fabric is most flattering in slimming silhouettes. Try it out in a high-waisted skinny pant or mini skirt. Top off your look with a boxy bomber jacket and newsboy cap for a classic off-duty look.

Flying colors

You may have type-casted corduroy as a muted, neutral-colored fabric—but this season, it’s all about the unexpected. Kick your look up a notch by playing with color and print. Try a burnt orange corduroy jacket or a floral work shirt with your favorite jeans. (Flared denim, anyone?)

Be so bold

Test uncharted outfits with a fresh approach to wearing this textured fall favorite. Don’t hold back—add a corduroy style statement to your look with modern pieces like a pastel puffer coat, a long, slimming trench, or a strappy sandal. More familiar renditions like overalls and a beret read classic without looking overtly retro in fresh colorways like mauve and teal.
