Free People Olive stretch corduroy skirt
Corduroy seems to have gone out of favour with fashion designers in everything except flares, and for retro devotees it's a shame. This Free People skirt uses the much ignored fabric to great effect in a deep olive green, providing a casual alternative to suit style pencil skirts.
The matelot style buttons give this a not unexpected 50s/60s feel, while the fabric inherently says seventies by its texture and shade. It sounds like it shouldn't work, but it does, giving a great all day skirt from the usually sexed up pencil skirt style.
It's available from Bluefly online for $59.
