There’s nothing quite like crisp pinwale corduroy for a crisp cool day. In blazer form, corduroy can take you to work (in business casual environments) and out on a date. Here’s how to wear a corduroy blazer:
1. Start with the basics: a comfy henley shirt and a pair of light khaki pants. You may also want to layer a crewneck tee under the henley shirt.
2. Toss on a slim cut corduroy blazer. Make sure that the blazer features a narrow cut; the trim fit and narrow lapels are slimming. In this outfit, notice how the deep navy blue blazer makes the white pants visually pop.
3. Accessorize with a bright blue scarf and a pair of rich brown shoes that echo the brown belt. For colder temperatures, switch out the lightweight scarf for something warmer, such as a cashmere knit.
