Well, we are finally in the midst of winter, which means it’s time to acquaint ourselves with a new set of trends for the season.

According to fashion people, though, it’s time we stop sleeping on corduroy—specifically, corduroy pants. Corduroy is an easy way to add texture to an otherwise simple look.
