Cool in Corduroy ~ Timeless Style in Classic Cabric
by Kéla Walker
♫ Peter pan almond joy, look at (fill in name) corduroy!! ♫ Does anyone else know or remember that song? As a child, it was the taunting melody you heard if some one was seen wearing the dreaded fabric that could “start a fire”. How cruel and funny children can be…
Fast forward to today and the durable material still kind of gets a bad wrap. Cordoroy is the retro fabric, the textured one that appeals to few. But this season it’s made somewhat of a kool comeback with appearing in an array of cuts and colors (primarily in pants). Kool or not, this corduroy dress is a #klosetkeeper for me, it’s probably more than 7 years old and I have it in two colors (caught it on super sale). I pull it out on those cold days when I want an no-fuss, effortless dress to wear -it make’s an appearance about once a year. The classic cut and structure of the dress ensures thats its always in style even when the fabric is not. To style the piece up, I like to add modern, of the moment accessories that makes me look cool in corduroy.
