Trend: Cords Galore!

From 22-gauge wale that feels like velvet to thick, nubby wale you can see from across the room, corduroy is in again. Most textile manufacturers are blending cotton with rayon and spandex to mimic the look of cord with the flexibility of modern synthetics. The result is forgiving fabric in a wide array of colors.

With jean pant styling, these Indigo Palms trousers are soft to the touch. The color options (caramel, chocolate and vine) are very versatile and easy on the eyes.

Gap’s simple, 2-pocket skirt is cut on the bias and, although the model here is quite tall, will fall just below the knee. Thankfully, the side zip cuts down on bulkiness. Also in brown.

This lucious, dark plum blazer is sure to stop traffic. The pairing with silk you see here is perfect for office or evening (depending on your cami’s foxy factor).

Speigel’s collared, long-sleeved, belted cord dress rounds out your options. You can wear it as a coat or dress — snap-front and spandex are in your favor.

Lastly, these stitched ankle boots may be too high (3 1/2 inches) for everyday but make a great statement.
