THE CORDUROY SUIT:
That 70's Show
Yolke are bringing back the 70’s! This season’s ready-to-wear collection is corduroy and colour blocking – what more could you want? Otherwise known as the ‘Disco Decade’, the 1970s has always been a strong inspiration for fashion, and YOLKE’S newest collection with the corduroy suit and colour blocking is an ode to this fabulous decade. With the uncertainty of 2020, it’s now all about experimentation. With the perfect reintroduction to that 70s vibe, and inspiration from our favourite influencers and brands –it’s pretty groovy.
As seen all over the catwalk, 70’s styling is making a comeback – trickling through the fashion chain and seen all over your Instagram feed or magazine columns. Saint Laurent, Prada and Givenchy have thrown it back to the ‘best decade of fashion’ with bell-bottoms and the rise of disco. Fashion’s seasonal nature means we’re constantly recycling our favourite 70s trends – whether that is under the influence of music, media or politics.
As featured in Marie Claire, fashion is bringing the 70s styles back into 2020, with YOLKE’s range representing the ‘free-spirited, inherently cool and a little rock ‘n’ roll’ (MARIE CLAIRE: How to Bring 70’s Fashion back into 2020). As seen on the brand-new Bow Corduroy Jean is a ribbed fabric with a high waist – the perfect replacement for classic denim.
The flattering silhouette of the Bow Corduroy Jean takes inspiration from the flared trousers that reigned across the 197os – now available in head-to-toe corduroy! Creating the illusion of longer legs, this is made even more so when styled with a chunky heel and the Belle Blouse in Cornflower Blue or Fig.
The micro-trend that’s all over your Instagram feed - the collar. It’s time to freshen up your tailoring and complete your outfit with a statement collar! The lace collar on YOLKE’s new Belle Blouse is no exception – to be styled your way, either buttoned up or down. It’s the perfect layering opportunity for the approaching colder months – paired with an oversized jacket and experiment with textures.
As seen on model Atranza, the corduroy suit can be styled as a set: colour blocking for the win! Colour blocking peaked in the 1970s, rebelling against societal norms and expressing colour in a post-war mentality. Head-to-toe in corduroy for a match-a-malistic vibe, colour blocking is an easy way to inject some colour into your Autumn/Winter wardrobe, with blue or burgundy to choose from.
If colour blocking isn’t your thing – newest YOLKE Girl, Charlotte Lemay styles the Fig Bow Jean with the YOLKE Jessica Blouse in Orange print – the ultimate fruity refresh on a classic silhouette.
For a real 70s vibe, style with a Dutch-inspired clog for extra height with constant comfort. Alternatively, a pointed-toe boot with a chunky heel to dress it up. As ever, accessories are key.
