Cord seems to be one of those materials that completely divides people – you either love it or hate it. Some are of the opinion that it’s just for old men, and for others the feel of it alone makes them wince. Personally, I find elderly men some of the best dressed people around, and my opinion of cord has always been that it’s amazing when you get it right. I have a few cord A-line skirts in my collection from over the years, but I haven’t owned a pair of cord trousers since I was a child. Mainly because I just haven’t ever been able to find the right style for me…

This season, there have been so many beautiful styles floating around, all in an array of different colours. I have loved seeing people style the dusty pink shades and really wish that they were something I could pull off – pink just isn’t really my thing and I’m pretty certain it never will be. However, I recently got sent this beautiful tan brown pair from ME+EM and instantly fell in love – finally a high waist pair that are casual enough to wear everyday but still look stylish. They are a culotte design which means they skim over the legs and get more comfortable as the day goes by. I definitely recommend checking out ME+EM if you haven’t already too – they have some really unique pieces that are perfect for the season ahead!

I always try and keep the rest of the outfit as simple as possible when wearing something statement – it just makes me feel most like myself and not like I’m trying too hard to over-style something. I don’t usually agree with the term ‘overstyled’ but I usually just refer to it when something is too busy for my personal tastes. I am after all, quite simple when it comes to creating outfits, I never like to look like I’ve spent too long in the mirror putting something together. I think this particular outfit is a perfect example of that – it’s the I just picked these pieces up off my bedroom floor kind of attire…

  2. I absolutely love corduroy clothing, I feel it’s one of those timeless classic trends that people will always wear; they’re subtle, but such a statement piece you can wear everyday! The warm tan brown looks beautiful on you, you’ve sold this look to me, as always.
