I remember exactly when I wore Corduroy for the last time. I was a child and it was very en vogue at that time. I had it on jackets, pants and on different colors. So when I looked at this jumpsuit online, my first thought was… “wait a second, I know this Corduroy thing”. So here I am, decades after, wearing a Corduroy jumpsuit. You never know in life, right?
This trend made a big comeback and you can style it in different ways. I definitely advice to wear this trend on daytime as the material is too thick to get that nightlife look. I choose the brown color as I have been loving more neutrals tones recently. I loved pairing up this trend with brown and white tones. I think they look pretty good together!
It also, at least for a while, played a significant historic role—in 641, it became the first Arab settlement in Egypt and served as the country’s capital for two separate periods totaling more than 300 years. But in the midst of the Crusades, the city’s top political official ordered the city burned in a desperate attempt to prevent its wealth from being stolen.
We’ll likely never know for sure because history is hazy on this point, but a 1772 mention of “corderoys,” in reference to the fabric being imported, supports the claim, for what it’s worth. It’s either that, possibly, or that someone saw the cords on these pants and thought it fit perfect with “duroy.”
Corduroy may be the ultimate always-going-in-and-out-of-fashion fabric.
And how do you personally style the Corduroy Trend?
