Cords Have Come A Long Way Since You Last Rocked Them In Middle School

I’ve personally always loved cords — they’re the perfect jeans-alternative for fall — but I understand the bias some people have against them. If you haven’t rocked a pair since the 90s, you might not know how far this material has come in the last decade or two.

This season, cords are looking better than ever – they’re  skinny-cut, cute, and not just for prepsters and moms any more. And it looks like the authorities on ready-to-wear agree; denim favorites 7 For All Man Kind, Rag & Bone, Hudson, Citizens of Humanity and Current Elliott all included cord styles in their fall lines.

Looks like my jeans are going to have to sit this season out, because cords are officially (gasp!) on-trend.
