Cozying up to Corduroy

Corduroy is a perennial Fall fabric, but this year it’s taking a more tailored turn. And jackets seem to be leading the way. That’s why this double-breasted one from the current Rowing Blazers x Target collab caught my eye. The collection has been wildly popular and in-store stock is pretty sparse, but you can still score some pieces online and on sale. Don’t wait.

I had a lot of fun pulling this look together, because it gave me a chance to style longtime wardrobe pieces in a fresh, fun way. Sticking to a neutral palette was key too.

Both this jacket and cropped high-waisted jeans step up the style quotient with polished details. For the jacket, that means classic brass buttons and flap pockets, for the jeans that means top-stitched patch pockets and rivets. I’ll take each of them into winter by layering a cashmere sweater underneath the jacket and paring the jeans with booties like these.

I mixed my “cats” with a tiger motif tee and leopard-patterned Mary Janes, and stuck to warm buttery tones for my belt and beloved bag. I wish Tory Burch would re-issue it!

Jacket: (Rowing Blazers x Target, on sale, limited sizes) Also like this (on sale but designer price tag) and this.

Jeans: (Zara) Similar here and here (under $40).

Tee: (old, Emerson Fry) Feeling this, this and this feline vibe, too.

Belt: (old, Telfar)

Bag: (old, Tory Burch, I promise I did not pay anywhere near the estimated price! But wow!!) Love this and this.

Shoes: (old, J. Crew) Designer option here, affordable option here (under $50).

Earrings: (Ben-Amun) Similar here and here (under $10!).

    1. Thanks, girl! Like I said, that collab was flying out of the stores. I just went online and some sizes in both colors are still available. For reference, I’m wearing an M. Click on the link!

  1. Make no mistake- corduroy is comfortable, hence cozy, as are the high-waisted jeans. And I love the cream. It’s such a clean color that brings to mind unmistakable great fashion, a tone that’s a little unexpected for Fall. Super!

    1. Love this comment. Thank you! I’m feeling cream, too. So I’m sure you’ll be seeing these pieces again.
