Corduroy is one of those fabrics that many relate to ‘being old’ or just so not fashionable. Corduroy always makes me remember my dear old Dad who had a mustard pair which he would wear with his blue cap and trainers when cutting the grass!

Others think of that History teacher who would wear them with a shirt!

You need to embrace it this season as it is everywhere!

Corduroy is a textile with a distinct pattern, a “cord” or wale. Modern corduroy is most commonly composed of tufted cords, sometimes exhibiting a channel (bare to the base fabric) between the tufts.

Corduroy is, in essence, a ridged form of velvet.

Cos have this gorgeous navy corduroy blazer for £115 and available in many sizes. You have to look at this jacket as an injection of a different fabric into your wardrobe, it will soften the look.


High waisted shirt skirt in H & M which does come in burgundy and black and sizes 4 – 18 will be fab with opaque tights and a knit or a silver or checked shirt, pop to with trainers, boots or loafers to complete the look.



I think if I had a pair of corduroy trousers I may be stroking my leg all day, you never know and I may be lucky and someone else may stroke my leg!!

The Ochre wide leg trousers in Burberry are a good price of £150.00 and they do come in sizes 8 -14.

I really like this colour as navy, red, teal, orange, pink and purple team beautifully so you can mix the look up on a daily basis and these trousers become a very good investment piece.



Finally, the Cord trousers in Boden are slightly different to the ones above as they have a straight leg. They are available in sizes 8 – 20 and also come in black.

A good price of £70.00 too.


Lots of love
