How to style cords


Cords are wardrobe staples which are a great alternative to jeans and ideal for both work and casual wear. For this autumn/winter, it’s got to be cords as they tend to be softer, cozier and warmer than jeans which keep you extra warm during the cold seasons.

These retro trousers are easy to style and will work with pretty much everything else in your wardrobe. Cords come in form of shorts, pants, skirts, blazers and accessories. 

I wore my red corduroy pants with a black & white baseball jersey t-shirt, necklace & cream heeled sandals for a sporty but feminine look.

Cords have come a long way as they were initially worn by kings and noblemen in Europe but they are now bang on trend and come in skinny silhouette to give a modern clean look. Corduroy pants come in different fits such as boot cut, wide leg or skinny.
