For the past several F/W seasons, I have made corduroy my go-to bottoms for all occasions – dressy, casual, bumming around. Over those years, J.Crew sold them nearly exclusively and in so many colors to die for. I have them in nearly every color.
The best time to buy is always right after Christmas. Any time before that, they run too expensive for my excessive taste, so I buy a pair or two at the beginning of the season, then hit the mall to grab the rest of the colors I’m feigning post-Santa Clause.
This year, however, cords are trending. They’ve been spotted at the Loft:
I’ve also spotted them at Banana Republic. I have found them to be more affordable at these other locations, but have not found the range of striking colors offered anywhere other than J.Crew. Which ones couldn’t I wait for this year? These.
