Fall brings with it a few things: stunning transitions in nature, the much-anticipated return of pumpkin spice and most notably (OK, most time-intensively) closet overhauls. The most fashion-minded (and let’s be real, practical) among us trade our breezy summer duds for cozier autumn ones, swapping T-shirts for sweatshirts, blouses for flannel button-downs, sandals for boots, and so on—until our wardrobes are full of a kind of comfy-cute armor that promises to protect us from the elements for the foreseeable future.

Winter ushers in an even deeper iteration of this same cycle.

When temperatures drop from mild, romantic autumn into frigid, daunting winter, our chicest knits cease to meet our needs. It’s in times like these that we turn to even heavier, less breathable fabrics, like leather or PVC or of course, corduroy.

Corduroy’s path into the sartorial zeitgeist has been long—and a little bit windy. Children of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s may recognize the textile from its roots in children’s literature: the story of Corduroy bear and his one-button overalls. Others may associate corduroy with prep retailers, many of whom have used the fabric to craft classic tailored pants.

Eventually, corduroy landed somewhere between sweet nostalgia and staid sophistication: It felt simultaneously cozy but active, chic but cool. It offered a seasonal best of both worlds few other clothing items could claim to have achieved—joining the likes of Chelsea boots, jumpsuits and (some) matching sets.

Flexible where leather was rigid, warm where denim was cool, corduroy became the cold-weather fabric du jour—and has largely remained that way.

This season, corduroy’s classic cord-pant form is only one of a number of iterations of the textile on offer. Designers and retailers have reimagined the fabric, rendering it in puffer coat form, and trench coat form, and cowboy boot form, and so on.

The options for corduroy shopping are practically endless, making it easier than ever to stay bundled up while looking chic as hell. Scroll down for 21 of our favorites.
