Its comeback began last year, but this fall, you just can’t miss it: corduroy is all the rage! We’re excited to make some space in our closet because we absolutely love this thick and robust fabric that keeps us warm. This amazing textile turned out to be the best fabric to design worker uniforms, and was a huge hit later in the seventies, for both men and women. As part of this craze for retro fashion, corduroy is THE material to adopt this season!


CROPPED FLARE PANTS

What better way to embrace the seventies than with corduroy gauchos? This retro cut combined with corduroy takes us head first a few decades back. Small warning: the gaucho cut tends to weigh down the silhouette, just like corduroy. It doesn’t mean that you should avoid them, but simply try to create a balance with the rest of the outfit. Go for a rather fitted top and if you are small; say yes to heels!

FITTED PANTS

Fitted pants look good with everything and fit perfectly in boots and booties. We like to wear them with a blouse and a sweater on top. Layering and corduroy are the ideal comfy combo for fall!

To finish, here’s how to take good care of your corduroy clothes:

- You can machine wash them, BUT wash them inside out and use cold water.

- Avoid the dryer. Lay flat to dry or use a padded hanger. 

- Do not iron corduroy. To make your clothes look great, hang them over a bathtub filled with hot water for about thirty minutes. When done, simply brush the fibres backwards with a clothes brush.
