Cord: Top 5

Monday, September 17, 2018

It’s well and truly September guys. You know what that means. It’s time to get out those transitional pieces and relegate the summer garms (until 2019, only 300 days to go). The one material you need to get to know for that in-between season is corduroy. No longer associated with your old geography teacher, cord is officially cool and we can’t wait to throw on a few of our top picks from New In.

The pinafore

Your new favourite transeasonal piece just arrived. The perfect partner to polo necks, plain tees and pussybow blouses, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it. Not sure how to style a pinafore without looking 12? Here’s our screenshottable style guide. 

The cord co-ord

This co-ord is basically the American tuxedo revamped for 2018, and we’re not even mad about it. Don’t forget you can also wear the jacket and skirt separately – three outfits in one here, guys.


The blazer

Love the trends but need something that’ll work for 9am to 9pm? Try a cord blazer. This one also has matching skinnies and straight leg trousers if you choose to couple cord-on-cord, but throw it on over a print blouse and wide leg trews for work and you’re sorted.

The dungarees

A cute move-on from denim, cord dungarees are perfect for chilly days out where you’ve still gotta look like you’ve made an effort instead of just jumping into this adult onesie. Not that that ever happens.

The wild card

Take a walk on the wild side fashionistas, and cast your cord in a cute colour. Cut to a straight leg fit to offset the girliness, pair it with a high neck top and mules for a paparazzi-worthy look. Not just for Wednesdays, hun.
