Corduroy skirts are one of the trendiest style items of Fall, but what should you wear with them? I came up with unique women’s button-up corduroy skirt outfit ideas for Fall because you will want to get some mileage out of this modern yet classic piece.
Despite being so on-trend, corduroy skirts have a vintage 1970s feel — as if they came straight out of The Mary Tyler Moore Show or the movie Love Story. This makes them a worthwhile wardrobe investment for your classic Fall style capsule wardrobe.
And since the tagline of my blog is “where books meet lifestyle,” I am pairing these outfit ideas with one of my favorite books, Classic Style by Kate Schelter, which has informed my own style with its honest prose and beautiful watercolor drawings, reminding us all that classic never goes out of style.
Below are my favorite women’s button-up corduroy skirt outfit ideas for Fall. Click the pictures to shop specific styles.
Button Up Corduroy Skirt
My own corduroy skirt (pictured above) is from Gap three years ago. If you don’t already have a beige button-up corduroy skirt, though, here is a great option from sustainable retailer Everlane:
Chambray Blouse, Cable Knit Sweater and Brown Knee High Boots + Corduroy Skirt Outfit
This particular outfit idea (also pictured above) is, without question, my most pinned style pin on Pinterest. For that reason, it’s my first option here and my suggested outfit for the most Fall holiday of all — Thanksgiving.
A simple chambray blouse can be purchased at J. Crew Factory, my go-to for closet staples:
And L.L. Bean carries the best cable-knit sweaters to layer this look:
My brown knee-high boots (pictured above) are a few years old, but here is a similar Ralph Lauren option from DSW, one of my most trusted retailers for shoes:
Black Sweater and Black Boots + Corduroy Skirt Outfit
You simply cannot go wrong by pairing your corduroy skirt with a black sweater and black boots. Each and every Fall, I trust Gap for their washable merino wool sweaters:
An oversized shaker stitch sweater (my favorite are by 525 America) could also work for a less polished and more cozy look:
As for over-the-knee boots, I have been hearing a lot about these popular waterproof Blondo boots:
I personally purchased these exact black booties from Chinese Laundry for this exact look:
Striped Turtleneck / Sweater + Corduroy Skirt
I think the trick to wearing stripes with a beige corduroy skirt is to maintain a Fall-inspired overall look so that the stripes don’t overpower the corduroy. Here are some great Fall striped tops to match a button up corduroy skirt:
Denim Jacket + Corduroy Skirt
A denim jacket gives a classically casual feel to a corduroy skirt. I trust Gap for a timeless denim jacket:
Pair with booties or canvas sneakers, depending on how casual you want to look!
Fair Isle Sweater + Corduroy Skirt
I’m slightly obsessed with fair isle. It reminds me of Home Alone and all things cozy and classic. These would look perfect for a preppy, New England look with your corduroy skirt. Click through to shop:
