We think this high street blue suit is going to be a sell out this autumn - get in the queue ASAP

Corduroy just got cool

Laura Sutcliffe

Corduroy is the new denim - you heard it here first. The whole 70s vibe is back with a vengeance and the throwback material is now at the top of our wish lists. Not only is it super soft, it instantly gives you a smart edge. Easy to work into your wardrobe, just swap you denim staples for a boxy corduroy jacket, pinafore or skirt. With that in mind – we've seen the coolest corduroy suit that needs to be hanging up in our wardrobe. From high street favourite New look, we can't get over how stylish this pastel blue suit is. The cropped trousers, £24.99, are made in a tailored shape with a high waistline. The double-breasted blazer, £34.99, is a great match – it simply oozes laid-back, effortless chic and the two together would look seriously cool. The great thing about this co-ord is that it can be mixed up and worn with so many different things. You could team it with a white tee and trainers, or even a satin camisole and sexy high heels for a night on the town. The blazer would look equally fab with jeans, and the trousers could be teamed with a roll neck too when the weather gets colder.


Trousers, £24.99 & Blazer, 34.99, New Look

Also up for grabs on the site is a pinafore dress that comes in the same sky blue hue. Also available in red, it's giving us all the retro vibes right now, especially if you wear the frock with a pair of white ankle boots with a chunky heel. Twiggy circa 1965 has nothin' on us…


Blazer, £39.99 & Trousers, £29.99, H&M

If blue is not your colour, H&M has a similar style in a dusky pink. Super feminine, the trousers are cut with a high waist and would look fabulous paired with a crisp white shirt and nude high heels.

If you wore this to work, there’s no doubt about it – you would be the coolest gal in the office. Adding the blazer would take you straight to after-work drinks in style.
