TRENDS ON TRIAL

The Sunday Telegraph - Stella - - CONTENTS -

Could you/should you try au­tumn’s trick­i­est looks?

We love the idea of cord. More char­ac­ter than suit­ing, more flair than denim, more mileage than vel­vet. But we are also aware that cord can add pounds faster than cake and, like tar­tan, turns on you post-40.

Could you?

Hell yes. Just pro­ceed with cau­tion. Safe cord is what we want: start with navy, black, dark brown, or pos­si­bly dark red. And our jumbo cord days are over.

Should you?

Ab­so­lutely. And some of us al­ready have. One of this sea­son’s must-buys is a blazer, and a cord one gets around the ho­tel man­ager­ess vibe. A needlecord suit in dark blue may well be this sea­son’s day-to-night bulls­eye. Skirt with pock­ets, £120, Toast (toa.st)

Would you?
