Corduroy is a fuzzy material in lines, sort of like upholstery. It can be in any color but traditional colors are natural, earth tones. Made famous by the children's book Corduroy about a little teddy bear with corduroy overalls. Corduroy can be stylish in jackets and blazers. I'd stay away from corduroy pants. Try finding a cropped blazer or jacket in corduroy, one with big buttons and side pockets.
