One of the first updates that clothing brand designers do as we move toward the fall/winter months is play with texture. This change affects the general public as everyone tends to look for creative and affordable ways to keep warm and stay stylish at the same time. One way to achieve this is by getting a corduroy jacket.

Much like a tweed blazer, a corduroy jacket is a textured fabric that allows for versatility and can therefore be worn in the office or on a weekend dinner.

Let’s see how a corduroy jacket can be used effectively in each scenario.

The Office Look

Some may think that corduroy is only suited for casual wear, but this is definitely not the case, as mentioned above. No worries though if you are not willing to spend for an entire corduroy suit just yet. Consider a starter piece, such as a corduroy blazer, for an easier transition. We suggest going with a bold color (for example, burgundy or olive) to separate yourself from the overwhelming sea of gray and blue suits likely seen in an office on a daily basis. Find a nicely tailored jacket to combine with a slim-fit button-down shirt, fitted gray trousers, and a pair of darkĀ loafers.

The Weekend Look

Headed out to dinner with some friends? Give this look a try: Cover a thin turtleneck sweater with a corduroy outer layer and match with a fitted pair of dark denims and Chelsea boots. Casual? Yes. Fresh and not boring? We think so.
