9 Cozy Chic Ways to Wear Skinny Cords this Winter

Skinny cords are nearly as versatile as jeans, if not more so because you can dress them up or down depending on the color and fit. Sure skinny jeans come in every color of the rainbow now, but there’s something about the softer texture of corduroy that just reads “Winter”.

Though they’re thin, stretch corduroy {which is far more flattering than the older, thicker fabrics} keeps you a bit warmer than jeans in the winter, where you feel the chill go right to the bone, and they’ve become my go-to winter wardrobe staple. When I found my favorites by Blank Denim last year, I bought them in every color I could find so I wouldn’t be left out in the cold. Asos has a deep berry skinny cord and a deep teal still available that I may have to grab as well!

For a warmer, brighter, and cozy chic twist this winter, here are 9 different ways to inspire you to style your own.

    Instead of jeans, opt for skinny cords this winter! For a warmer, brighter, and cozy chic twist, here are 9 different ways to inspire you to style your own.

  • Winter White & Camo 2 of 10

    White or light colored pants can be our body's worst enemy, but stretch corduroy skinnies are somehow more flattering than regular jeans. Opt for an ivory or "winter white" and pair them with lighter boots to elongate your legs. To draw attention to my upper body, here I layered a cheetah sweater in neutrals over a light pink silk blouse for proportion and topped it off with a vintage camo print army jacket.

  • Bright Bolds + Neutrals 3 of 10

    I love the classic look of this outfit and the hint of Brit the Hunter wellies and plaid blazer brought to it. To tone down my super bright red skinny cords,  I opted for a neutral cashmere cozy turtleneck sweater and added the vintage brooch on my lapel instead of a statement necklace to bring the old classic feel full circle.

  • Woodsy Chic 4 of 10

    If you notice I'm wearing the same cozy cashmere turtleneck sweater here, but with only a hint of plaid peeking out from the sleeves and waist. The leopard coat and heeled suede boots add a little more glam to this otherwise very woodsy outfit and, rather than go completely matchy matchy, I tied in the leopard with a cognac handbag.

  • Winter Whites + Classics 5 of 10

    I just wore this last week and it's already a favorite! I don't often wear a similar hued top and bottom unless it's in black, so the winter whites together felt so fresh to me, I loved it! I paired it with classic colors; my vintage navy military coat, cognac suede boots, and a leopard print handbag to tie it together. What's great about winter is COATS! You can get away with wearing light colors from head to toe, even if you're a little body conscious, because you can disguise it with a great coat.

  • So Cozy 6 of 10

    This is a favorite cozy go-to outfit for running out to do some errands. I wear any number of this combination on any given day of the week. What made this look pop was the bits of leopard print peeking out at my sleeves and collar, and the adorable gloves of course!  The black socks peeking out from my boots tied the bag, glove detail, & leopard print together.

  • Messy Bohemian Chic 7 of 10

    You might not think about wearing black and brown together very often, but this combo of black, brown (cognac here), and gray is one of my favorites. If you recall this cheetah sweater from my first look with the camo, it's just as fun here where I'm using it to tie in the boots without being overly matchy matchy. This look is a little more edgy with a bohemian vibe and best saved for the weekends.

  • Preppy with an Edge 8 of 10

    More of a Fall look unless you live in Los Angeles or another warmer climate, these dark charcoal gray skinny cords kept me as warm as I needed to be. I layered the same light pink blouse from the camo jacket outfit over a longer soft pink, loose tank for a billowy look that gave the fitted and preppy blazer and loafers a hint of an edge.

  • Layered Up 9 of 10

    This particular day was freezing, but not snowing yet, so I could get away without boots as long as I layered it on up top! If you notice, nearly every time I wear green, I also have a bit of leopard print. It's one of my favorite combos, and here, the rich black skinny cords and furry hat add a great cozy/warm texture against the leather, silk, and trench. This is actually a sleeveless trench coat dress that I layered over a leather moto jacket to create the look of leather sleeves.

  • French Trench 10 of 10

    The stripes and trench make me feel a little French here, though the cozy boots take me right into the snowy mountains. The hint of leopard print around my neck mixed with the stripes and the furry vest in my bag (which I wore later for warmth), added great dimension to this casual outfit.
