Yes, you heard that right; the fabric synonymous with notoriously un-fashionable country farmers and posh old men is now looking covetable for Autumn/Winter. Worn by style icons from SJP to Alexa Chung, it is the fabric to be seen in this year.
With its traditional British style and warm cosy look, cord is perfect for the chillier months and it is hard to understand why it hasn’t been in fashion sooner. Our top tip is to avoid corduroy trousers, jackets are the best option. Try the fabric in deep, Autumnal hues such as russet, burnt orange and camel to epitomise the season.
Our number one choice is this gorgeous cord jacket from Asos. The slightly longer, baggier ‘girlfriend’ cut gives a really cool, oversized shape that looks great with skinny jeans and mini-skirts. The light wash stone colour is a perfect neutral that you can pair with anything, and the cosy borg collar will keep you warm on a cold morning commute. This is an essential casual jacket for this season!
