Camel Corduroy Skirt + Stripes

corduroy skirt

I bought this camel corduroy skirt last fall at Loft. Honestly, I bought it because they were out of the other camel skirts they had (not corduroy). And at the time, I really wanted a skirt in this color, so I went ahead and bought this one. I had been putting off wearing it because I wasn’t sure how to wear it. I couldn’t remember if I had anything in mind when I bought it either.

I finally wore the corduroy skirt earlier this week. I paired it with a Mossimo striped shirt (that I bought at Target on sale for $7), black tights & black scarf. I was going to wear it with my wedge booties but since the skirt was a tad longer than expected, I chose the black heels. I also was kind of in a hurry and they were easier to slip on than my booties.

I think the color combination worked. Although, I am not sure I will be buying anymore corduroy skirts in the future. For one, apparently they are a fashion no-no, which I didn’t know. Also, the skirt was a bit big….like there was too much fabric. It fit around the waist, but on the sides and back it felt too big. It was a petite-sized skirt and I’ve bought other skirts from Loft without having this problem. It might just be the fabric…oh well.

How do you feel about corduroy skirts?

  1. I think it is cute. I’m not really a skirt or dress girl but I have a lot of corduroy pants. I had a skirt like this years ago but I never knew how to wear it.

  2. I think it’s really cute. Why are corduroy skirts a fashion no-no? I’ve never heard that and seen them at a lot of stores, I have two of them that I wear once in a while and with the right outfit it looks cute…maybe I’m totally out of it though! haha

    • I read that many fashion experts consider it a fashion blunder, it didn’t really say why. Only that if you are going to try it, then go for a-line skirt, pencil skirt, straight & narrow skirts. I am guessing because depending on the cut, it might be too boxy? I am not sure, I also had no idea. But I did notice when I looked on pinterest for ideas there were hardly any corduroy skirts.
