Corduroy is a popular look for fall and winter and it's easy to see why. The vertical lines on this cool weather favorite is slimming and forgiving. This week we are styling a couple of our corduroy pieces to show you how effortlessly stylish this fabric is. Check out below to see five ways we styled corduroy!

One of my favorite trends from when I was younger that is coming back this Fall (omg I sound old) is leopard print! I used to exclusively call it "cheetah print" at the ripe age of 16 because it sounded way cooler but now I think "leopard" is more socially acceptable. However you say it, it's made a comeback! I love pops of leopard accessories or even leopard tanks, but I just about hyperventilated when I saw our new leopard corduroy skirt.
I'm usually a pretty basic dresser, especially when it comes to prints. I almost always take the safe route and pair a solid color like I did this week. Although our mock neck long sleeves are considered a "basic," they are far from it. I love how fitted they are and have just the right amount of height up the neck, but they don't overly accentuate any little rolls you might have (or not even known that you had.) You can wear your tight mock neck without skipping taco Tuesday!
Because it's finally feeling brisk outside, I paired our new black denim sherpa collar jacket. I LOVE the vintage look of this jacket! You get the feel of the nineties without having to scour Goodwill all season.
Finally, I added a hat because it is definitely not wash day today for my hair, and added some of my favorite jewelry items we have right now. When it comes to metals, I like to lean towards silver and antique-looking gold. I thought these earrings and necklace gave the perfect hint of "I like to accessorize" without feeling like an 13 year old after a Claire's shopping spree. Come snag a leopard skirt and join the club!

Who says you can't wear a mini skirt during Fall?! Pair it with a sweater and you've got yourself a nice little outfit! This week we are featuring some beautiful corduroy pieces. I chose a burgundy mini skirt because no color screams "cold weather" to me more. Berry tones are by far my favorite to sport during this time of year. I love that corduroy is making it's rounds in the fashion world again. It's a really nice, durable fabric. I also really like the funky texture it brings to your outfit.
A mini skirt can be really versatile! You can dress it up a little make it flirty like I did here by keeping your legs bare and a wearing some flats or heels. Paired with this gorgeous chunky sweater it keeps you fairly warm. If you're romping around with the family during the weekend you could definitely opt for some of our cozy fleece lined leggings and a relaxed pair of boots.
This black sweater is so soft and comfortable. You all know how much comfort matters to me! It's not very often I will compromise on comfort for cute. With this outfit you get the best of both worlds! I like that this sweater hits me a little lower on the hip and is actually very flattering. I've had issues with sweaters like this in the past cutting me weird and making me look bulky. None of that funny business here!
I chose some of our more dainty jewelry for my accessories that way it didn't distract too much from the outfit as a whole. The gold sparkles so nicely against deeper hues. I'm a very big fan of our new rings. They are sterling silver with cubic zerconia crystals. At $18 each you can't pass them up! Stunning sparkle and quality. I think they look so beautiful and really make any manicure pop!
If you've been feeling nervous about the corduroy trend, I hope that this gives you a few ideas of how you can style it. This skirt also comes in a cat-tastic leopard print if you're feeling brave!
Here we are halfway into November and still lucky enough to be enjoying this Sunny and 70 degree weather. I'm not sure if I should be celebrating this or feeling left out from not being able to wear chunky sweaters and rain boots like everyone else on my Instagram feed. So in honor of that this week I styled an outfit that can get you through these uncertain climate related times. Its light and free while also staying true to the textures and fabrics of fall. Basically you can look Autumn worthy without going into shock from heat exhaustion!
I chose our new black corduroy overall jumper for a comfy casual look. this jumper is so cute and versatile which is great, plus maintenance free for my hectic GO, GO, GO lifestyle. I slipped our mauve cold shoulder bodysuit underneath the dense heavy feeling overalls for contrast and to add a weather conscious element. The mauve hue of this bodysuit looks great against any skin tone and is comprised of a nice tight spandex material.
I finished off this look with our teddy midi coat in apricot, Its over-sized with a nice bulk feel. I think the trick to this look was to combine a form fitting pieces with a bulky ones to accomplish a yin/yang effect. These two items marry together quite harmoniously.
For my accessories I chose a pair of silver hoop earrings. I love these earrings so much that this is the second time that I have styled them in one of my outfits. That's how cool and versatile they are...you can wear these hoops with anything! The next item that I chose to accessorize my outfit was our black wide brim hat. This hat is really nicely constructed and feels very expensive even though its only $42 and made of thick wool. What I love about this hat is that the brim has a straight non floppy look which has a more winter worthy feel. I hope that you enjoyed my styled look this week!
This weeks item that we're featuring is so fun to me. I was obsessed with everything cheetah and leopard print when I was younger. It started with Shania Twain because she wore a cheetah jacket in one of her music videos and I begged my mom to get me one just like her. The obssesion continued when the movie Cheetah Girls came. I mean it's pretty self explaintory. They all rocked chettah and made the early 2000's obsessed with the print.
For my outfit I chose the leopard skirt. Leopard is a great pattern to play around with when it comes to pairing it with different colors and patterns. I chose to pair it with a grey and white striped button down. The stripes work well with the leopard and the grey paired well with the brown and black as well.
To accessorize it I chose this adorable ring that we just got in the store and then of course pair it with some fun earrings and a good heeled bootie for the season. Cheetah Girls forever!
Thank you for dropping by! We hope you enjoyed these outfits and get some inspiration for wearing corduroy!
