If you're looking for a preppy, casual way to dress up your post-summer wardrobe, check out these 5 cute cord skirts for fall.

For a knee-length cord skirt with a bit of a flirty edge, check out the Whenever Cord Skirt from Athleta. Unlike most cord skirts, which have a pencil fit silhouette, this lovely skirt boasts a-line construction, meaning it will be flattering on a variety of figures (especially pear-shaped ladies). Available in light brown, purple, gray, taupe, and black, this gorgeous skirt is made from several different panels, which allows it to bow out towards the bottom of the hem. It closes with a zipper and buttons on the front, and two welt pockets at the rear add a nice touch.
Whether you wear it bare-legged or with your favorite colored tights, the A-Line Mini Cord Skirt from ASOS packs plenty of personality. Available in blue and orange, this skirt features a fine-grain corduroy pattern and contrasting brass buttons all the way down the front. Two jeans-like pockets on the back add a casual touch, while the high-waisted silhouette gives it just a bit of vintage flair. Belt loops allow you to dress it up for more of a structured look. This cord skirt would be perfect with wedges or boots. Wear it with a tight-fitting tee or long-sleeved blouse for extra oomph.
If you're looking for the perfect casual cord skirt to wear on the weekends, check out the Corduroy Straight Skirt from New York & Company. This beautiful skirt fits snug at the waist and hips, with a straight line down through the knee-length hem. Available in red and dark blue, it features simple pockets at the back, and closes in the front with a button and zipper fastener. Side pockets on the front (styled like those on your favorite pair of blue jeans) provide a great place to keep your hands warm. Pair this versatile cord skirt with sweaters, button-down shirts, and more.
Want a cord skirt that fits just as handsomely as your favorite pair of hip-hugging jeans? Check out the Low Five Cord Skirt by Victoria's Secret. Available in brushed nickel, light purple, and black, this skirt features Western-style pockets with a button on the back and falls just above the knee. Wear it with slim-fitting tees and button-down shirts.
Love the classic style of pea coats? Then you'll definitely fall for the Espirit Corduroy Skirt, available online at Zappos. This skirt features a double row of buttons down the front, just like your favorite pea coat. Deep side pockets make a great place to keep your hands warm, and large belt loops enable you to wear the skirt with a wide belt if you chose. Available in dark orange, this skirt embodies the spirit of autumn perfectly.
