“The verdict is in. Corduroys are back.”
At the beginning of the year, I made a style resolution to try on more old materials. Seeing as the ’70s are finding their way back, the corduroy fabric seemed like the perfect one to start with. Corduroys are characterised by the fine line of woven or twisted wool or cotton.Ever wondered how you'd style a pair of corduroy trousers without looking like a Grandpa? This post will help you.

As we know, it’s Men’s Fashion week season and the runway and streets have been flowing with Corduroys in all fits and forms. If there’s one thing I’m sure of, Fashion week determines what’s going to trend in the next months.
Asides from Corduroys being one of the next trends (probably), another reason to get it is for it’s soft, Indulgent and sumptuous feel. The velvety jawns feel so comfortable on the skin.Corduroys are definitely going to be a thing in 2018. Here's how to style them. Click To Tweet
Corduroys come in a gamut of colours. This even makes them more fascinating. They are a great way of breaking your daily uniform, Jeans. Don’t get me wrong. Jeans are great but variety is the spice of life. Can you hear the sirens luring you into purchasing them already? LOL.
Personally, what I love about Corduroys is that they don’t have to be too fitted to look good on the body. This is owing to the polished look. They also don’t have to be too big unless you want to conjure the images of grandpas from the ’70s sitting in the Patio and reading the papers.
Finally, Corduroys have great texture quality which makes them last longer than most other materials. This is also a great reason to include it in your wardrobe. Corduroy is one of the most underutilized materials in fashion. If worn correctly, can make for a requisite pair of trousers.
As opposed to it’s sometimes stuffy connotations, Corduroys are great when dressed down and worn casually. Glad it didn’t die in the ’70s. I’m super excited to see how the fashion scene will jump on it.
Happy New week! I wish you the best this week has to offer and all the glorious things!
