Shop the Look: Corduroy

As you will have noticed the two huge fashion trends this season are animal print and corduroy. This week we’re looking at the best of the high street and designer corduroy buys.  We’re particularly embracing the retro take – think thick beige cord, inspired by Hilary Swank’s must-see performance in Trust (set in 1973) and Florence Pugh in the BBC’s hit new series Little Drummer Girl (1979) – but there are plenty of variations that bring corduroy bang up to date using clashing colours and fine tailoring.
