Styling corduroy depends upon what piece or pieces of corduroy you are looking to create an outfit around. However, one of our favorite ways to style corduroy is through matching sets with oversized jackets and flared pants. Cool and comfortable, this look is sure to turn heads when you walk into a room.

A Comfy New Corduroy Jacket for this Fall
When you can’t quite wear a puffer jacket but are looking for something to layer up your look, we suggest trying out a corduroy jacket like our Tobacco Corduroy Trucker Jacket, which features ultra-soft and comfortable Sherpa lining on the interior and cool texture corduroy on the exterior.
We suggest styling this jacket with your favorite pair of joggers for a laidback look on a fall day. Add a pairing of neutral minimalist sneakers and accessorize with your favorite beanie to complete your look.
If you love this jacket but aren’t in love with the color, no worries! You might want to check out the rest of our corduroy collection to find the perfect color jacket for your wardrobe.
Switch out Basic Shirts for Corduroy
Another great way to switch up your wardrobe is with a selection of new corduroy shirts. These button-up shirts allow you to embrace rustic style and are perfect to be dressed up or down as needed. What we love about these corduroy shirts is that they are perfect to be layered during the fall.
Although they can be worn by themselves, layering them for fall makes them feel so much more comfortable and versatile. We admit, corduroy can feel unapproachable and more difficult to style but, in fact, when matched with neutral casual bottoms you can almost never go wrong.
Still, this season we’ve been loving our Khaki Corduroy Shirt, which shows off a classic year-round color that is versatile but switches up the basic button-up shirt with this cool fall texture.
This dope button-up is also available in other colors including:
Elevate your Trousers
Depending on the look that you’re going for, different pieces of corduroy might work better or worse for you. If you’re someone who prefers street style, you’ll want to opt for a matching set of an oversized jacket or shirt. However, if you love academic, dressy style you might prefer to have tons of corduroy trousers for this fall.
Our super comfortable corduroy pants feature an elastic waistband that will make sure that you feel comfortable and confident in your look throughout the day. Our current favorite look is our Rust Corduroy E-Waist Pant. These pants are a rusty red color that is sure to make you stand out.
We suggest styling these pants by putting on your favorite pair of work boots and a graphic tee for a laidback look. To dress up these pants, we suggest putting on a neutral button-up shirt to bring your look to the next level.
If you’re looking for another color, these corduroy pants are also available in:
