How to Wear Corduroy: The Right Way!

The holidays are here, and so are the festivities. Cheers! So, what eye-catching styles are you planning to wear this season? We suggest keeping your fashion favorites relevant and going for the vintage look. For years now, retro has dominated the fashion scene from vintage washed tees to skinny jeans. This year, corduroy has taken the spotlight in fashion for men and women alike. In fact, corduroy comes in several great styles with unisex sizing making it an ideal choice for matching couple outfits. Undoubtedly, corduroy is an on-trend fabric that isn’t going away. Here’s how to get it right!

The Corduroy Top

For many, the holidays are spent enjoying shenanigans with family and friends. From eating a meal together, “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It” on the dance floor, or celebrating with a drink, the holidays are a favorite time of year to connect. But let’s be honest – we spend hours, maybe even a few days before a gathering trying to figure out what to wear without a clue on where to start. And in this digital age of social media, your photo is bound to make its way to Instagram, so it’s imperative that your outfit is on point.

Not only is corduroy warm, but the ribbed texture is exceptionally stylish. Corduroy sweatshirts with a slightly oversized fit provide a comfortable and cute look for women when outfitted with leggings and boots. For guys, a corduroy pullover can easily be styled with jeans for casual swagger. Add a pair of nice shoes to your look and expect the compliments to roll in!

For some, everything must match, even down to the colors and fabrics. It may sound a little ridiculous considering mixing and matching has become the “new thing.” However, matching outfits have made a comeback within the last year or two. As such, it would be no surprise if someone wanted to wear corduroy on corduroy.  This look from top to bottom can truly set you apart in a very stylish way! Corduroy bottoms matched with a corduroy jacket or vest can take your simple outfit to a smooth look.  Should you desire, add a solid long-sleeve tee that contrasts the color of your corduroy to balance your ensemble. Mixing and matching corduroy colors can be an option too. Just make sure your corduroy colors complement each other.
