On the ‘Style’ page of a leading daily newspaper there is a “one item, six looks, any age” advertisement. The item on parade is a pair of corduroy trousers. The six looks are as follows:
The first model wears the trousers with an interesting leather and wool coat, unusual because the full length sleeves are of black leather whilst the remainder of the coat is in a woollen black and white small check. Over the cords, the coat looks stream-lined and neat whilst the wide front fastening is ideal to present a light coloured plain top underneath.
The second look is called ‘School Run’ and features the corduroy trousers turned-up at the ankles. A shirt and waistcoat complete this casual outfit.
Model number three is wearing the cords on a ‘First Date’. She looks distinctive in a short jacket with shaped waist over a bohemian blouse, whilst a floppy hat finalises her image.
A pair of ordinary corduroy trousers is not usually associated with a night at the opera but with lush velvet in the form of a belted blazer over a glamorous top, then the dress code is accomplished.
The parade of models continues with a fifth look called ‘Meet The Parents’ whereby a high collared short sleeved top looks demure when teamed with a casual, warm looking jacket.
And finally, for shopping, the cords are partnered with a comical, printed knitted jumper.
