I walk into all manner of shops and I am delighted to see tweeds, checks, and tartan all over the place. As a lover of all things country (Barbour, the Lake District & Alex James) I have never been happier with this trend and I encourage people to really invest in a few key pieces.
Style Secret Number 1: The riding boots.
Still not going away, last year’s quilted jackets are back and even better than before. The quilting fabric means it contains air so will keep you cosy and warm as the cold weather hits in. For real pizzazz invest in a genuine Barbour, but for those who want something with a little more glamour try River Island for this fabulous piece at just £39.99
Style Secret Number 3: The saddle belt
Once you have the jacket, the boots and the belt everything else should fall into place naturally. You’ll soon find yourself picking up that horse print cardigan, or snatching up that horseshoe and saddle print scarf. Who knows, maybe you can channel your inner Betty Draper and add in a black riding hat to team with your winter coat. The Heritage trend is all about good quality wools and enjoying our British love for the great outdoors. So make like the Lady of the manor and ride this trend right through to next year.
