ICYMI: Corduroy is back and better than ever. The ’70s staple popped onto the scene at L’Agence’s Fall 2020 RTW presentation back in February and has only grown in popularity since.

So, now that fall is actually among us, it’s only natural that we want to stock up on any and all things cord. While there are endless pants, jackets, and even cord-inspired sweats hitting the market, today we’re here to focus solely on pants. After all, it’s our goal to make Donna and Jackie proud. So, if you’re as big of a fan of the ’70s (and its beloved sitcom), keep reading for 10 modern takes on the retro trend.
