As the changes of fall begin to fully take effect, Fashionistas and Fashionistos will have to style their wardrobes and outfits accordingly. This is the time of year when each of us can look forward to healthy layers to beat the chilly temperatures outdoors. Soothing cashmeres, cozy flannels and velvety corduroys are essential this time of year and perfect for displaying savvy and practical fall style.
Today’s Fashionisto does an excellent job with his brown corduroy pants and accompanying layers. If you’re searching for a classic pair of cords, check out places such as J.Crew for Fashionistos, while Fashionistas can pick a print from Madewell for a new take on the timeless trend. Treat corduroy as you would denim: a versatile fabric that can be either dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Cords look great with a pair of boots and flannel for a casual daytime look. You could also try out a corduroy blazer or jacket, both from Club Monaco, for a more sophisticated ensemble. Finding a pair of colored corduroy pants is another must have item for this fall. Search for this pair of lavish corduroy pants from J Brand for a fun and updated look.
Corduroy may be an old classic, but this doesn’t mean that you have to be conservative. Remember to incorporate colors and prints for your fall style. Mustard, plum and maroon are perfect for complementing the many colors of fall and look great with corduroy’s rough yet velvet-like texture. Just because temperatures are falling and days are shortening doesn’t mean your style has to go into hibernation. Go outside your comfort zone and mix up classic fabrics with new trends.
