Retro seems to be the new standard these days, with styles like flare jeans and round sunglasses more popular than ever. In particular, it's the retro-chic vibe of the '70s that keeps giving us the coolest must-have trends time and again. It's the decade that keeps on delivering, with designers drawing various bits of influence from its iconic look all seasons. Right now, corduroy is owning the moment, and the '70s-inspired fabric feels so right in all the most fashionable fall outfits. Corduroy is essentially a ribbed velvet – which explains its captivating lustre. It has been championed in modern collections by designers from Prada to Saint Laurent. Corduroy is inherently autumnal by nature, so to test the style's waters and lean into that rich fall colour palette.
