With the holiday season approaching, many UCLA students may be returning home to a slightly colder climate than the eighty degree November that Los Angeles offers. However, just because a winter coat becomes a necessity does not mean you must abandon your style and opt for a pair of sweats. In fact, what might be even cozier are the currently trending materials of suede and corduroy. When wearing a corduroy pant or suede skirt style equates comfort in a perfect combination for the upcoming winter weather.
Although corduroy has not been a winter staple for a few decades, the trend is being embraced once again in all of its fuzzy and velvety glory, due to the resurgence of ‘80s and ‘90s fashion. While the soft browns and oranges of suede offer the perfect opportunity to embrace the holiday spirit of Thanksgiving and coordinate with the falling leaves. The versatile ability of both corduroy and suede means that from jackets to shoes to bike shorts there is sure be a piece that will match your style!
