About a week ago, my friend and sorority sister Tina had a special request for a blog post. I absolutely love requests from friends and readers – it makes me feel like I’m really helping people, making a difference. 🙂 Tina bought herself some skinny cords from Gap [my favorite place to buy cords as well!] and asked for help on what to wear with them. I LOVE this topic. Here are the cords she bought:
Excellent choices 🙂 The camel colored cords are super versatile and Tina will be able to wear them for many seasons. And the green are also versatile but definitely add a pop of color. I like to treat cords like jeans in terms of pairing them with tops and shoes, but I like to kick it up a notch since they’re not in the typical blues color family. I am going to show 3 different looks for cords – work, casual and party.
To wear cords to work, pair with a silly blouse and a dressy coat. If the flats are too casual for your place of business, try a pair of round toe pumps or dressy ankle booties.
I love fair isle sweaters. They are trendy but timeless and work very well with cords. For a casual look, the style of the heeled ankle boots above work well, but if you’re not feeling heels, stick to smoking loafers, oxfords or ballet flats.
Dressing up cords can be tough, so I like to add some glitter and shine. A sweater with a bit of sparkle with some metallic accessories can do the trick!
For the green cords, here are some good color pairings:
As a rule of thumb, I usually stick to neutrals with colored pants. I like this shade with cobalt blue, however.
Tina – I want to see pictures!! 🙂
