Cord trousers / Style post

Hey guys,

We all know how happy I am that cords have become cool again, I spoke about the cord jacket in this post and now I finally got a pair of cord trousers. 

I had this great pair of purple straight leg cords as a kid from Gap that I lived in for as long as I could until they no longer fitted and I was on the hunt for a replica of those.

So I found the perfect pair after a long search shopping in Exeter after trying Zara, Gap and Urban Outfitters with no luck we saw these in Marks. I went straight for the purple obviously, classic. They are the perfect straight leg fighting, they are a little long but it looks cool rolled up I think. Best part was the price, I was shocked but they are only £19.50. So if you are looking for some staple cord trousers this season I am recommending these plus there is 6 colours to choose from.

Styling wise I have one thing on my mind at the moment, stranger things! After we re-watched season 1 and the release of season 2, the late 70s early 80s aesthetic is all I can think about. Katie from Steal the spotlight has a new YouTube series around the costumes on iconic shows and films which began with Stranger things and an interview with the costume designer who explained that a lot of  the obvious iconic 80s trends (e.g. neon and leg warmers) didn't become relevant to the late 80s especially outside of the main cities hence a lot of the style in Stranger Things like the colour palette and cords are usually associated with 70s style. At the moment I'm only buying things if they vaguely resemble something Nancy Wheeler could wear, with my own take hence the purple too. Next I'm just on the hunt for lots of big knits in the earthy tones, a mustard or orange.

Love Charlotte
