Today's blog post & my new fashion video are about the CORDUROY fashion trend for Fall (Autumn) & Winter 2011./12.
What is corduroy?
Corduroy is a textile composed of twisted fibers that, when woven, lie parallel (similar to twill) to one another to form the cloth's distinct pattern, a "cord." Modern corduroy is most commonly composed of tufted cords, sometimes exhibiting a channel (bare to the base fabric) between the tufts. Corduroy is, in essence, a ridged form of velvet.
I already had in my wardrobe, several different clothing items made out of the corduroy, so I was very pleased when I realized it's back in trend!
I can wear my old clothes and be in the latest trend, without having to spend money buying new clothes!
I will probably just "refresh" the clothes by accessorizing them with my new accessories that I bought this season :)
I also have some corduroy material clothes back home in my old wardrobe in Croatia, so on my next trip home I'll have to remember to bring some of those clothes back to Italy with me :)
I do miss now my corduroy trench coat and cute corduroy hats!
I feel I just NEED to have them right now in my wardrobe in Italy, lol!
But still, here I do have my "vintage looking", military green pants from River Island, grey blazer type jacket by Diesel and my three quarter length brown pants from Vero Moda :)
These are definitely among my favourite fashion stores and the quality of the clothes confirms that!
I've had those pieces in my wardrobe for six years or more and they're still in the perfect condition and I can wear them now as if they were brand new! :)
If you'd like to see those items, definitely check out my video, where I'm showing you these pieces and talking more "in debth" about them:
Here I'm also presenting you my OOTD with my three quarter length corduroy pants from Vero Moda that I bought while I was still living & working in Croatia!
