CORDUROY’S COOL COMEBACK
Not known for being sexy, corduroy was one fashion trend we thought was best left in the past… but now it’s back! Forget about your grandfather’s baggy trousers and schoolgirl pinafores, the material has stepped into the future with a whole new look. Taking inspiration from tailored menswear, it’s now sleek and structured in jewel shades of burgundy, amber and sapphire for winter. Mango shows us how to rock corduroy this season with flattering jackets, but you can also try mini-dresses or skinny pants. Earn extra style points by layering the trend – think pants, shirt and jacket all in corduroy. Corduroy blazer, R1 999; high-waist pants, R1 399; both Mango Online.
