Country chic: 3 simple ways to add equestrian style to your Autumn/Winter wardrobe

Almost every Autumn/Winter season, a nod to countryside fashions can be found gracing the pages of top-end style magazines. Vogue has declared nods to equestrian chic in the top 10 A/W styles this year, including military epaulettes on the Burberry catwalk, and heritage fabrics taking centre stage on key pieces, including gorgeous Prince of Wales check at Isabel Marant.

 

Chelford Farm Supplies have sourced a fabulous country and equestrian clothing collection which combines elements of these A/W16 trends with durability, warmth and practicality.

 

Boots

The boot is a classic for a reason: eternal practicality. If you’re looking for a Wellington, then try the classic Hunter boot, combining lovely on-trend colours and styles with innate hardiness. If you’re aiming for a stylish look to take you around town, invest in some Fairfax & Favor boots to pair with smart denim and a tailored jacket. Be sure to invest in some suede protector, because you’ll want these boots to keep walking for decades.

Heritage fabrics

This stunning Holland Cooper military jacket is reminiscent of the Burberry, Prada and Miu Miu coats on the catwalk this season. Individually hand cut and handmade in Great Britain, this beautifully tailored statement piece is made with the highest quality Scottish tweed. The suede cuffs and signature gold buttons give this jacket a unique, high-end finish, and the feminine cut creates an enviable silhouette. What do you think?

Shirts

The trophy blouse was huge on the A/W 16 catwalk, with designers as diverse as Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Roksanda. For a more wearable day-to-night look with a heritage feel, try this gorgeous Joules pop-over shirt with a hand-drawn fox and pheasant print. Layer under a v-neck sweater for a subtle look; pair with cropped denim and heels during the daytime for a contemporary spin on ladylike dressing; add a sleek blazer for a dinner-and-drinks look in the evening.

I can picture myself rocking the all the pieces here together, and adding a blackΒ  v-neck sweater. What do you think of these pieces? Will you be rocking similar pieces this A/W?

OOTD: A Blogger Event Outfit

fashion-outfit-image

 

Have you told you how much I love my leopard print sandal? It first appeared here on the casual daywear look outfit post and I have worn it so many times now. It looks good with so many pieces in my wardrobe and it is dead easy to style. I get so many lovely compliments when I wear it, I guess that is because it stands out in a pretty way.

I wore this outfit to a fashion and beauty event in Chester over the weekend. I wanted a casual chic look so I went for aΒ  simple black top with a pair of skinny jeans, paired with cream sunnies, gold and brown bag and sandals. I like to black safe when it comes to press events so I usually for a black piece because it blends right in. You would hardly see me rocking colour at an event. Don’t ask me why….

Let me tell you just incase you were wondering, I love dark pieces and I think it always looks good but doesn’t usually stand out. I like looking good but not standing out at work related events (well not much) at events, and that is the reason why you won’t catch me wearing colour at press events.

The event was fun. It is my first press event this year and I had an amazing time. I was the only blogger invited to the event on that particular day so it felt kind of exclusive and I love that about it. I met some amazing people and I am going to tell you all about in the next couple of days, so be on the lookout for the post.

Are you a fan of the casual chic look? What are your thoughts on this outfit? Sound off in the comment section below.

Thanks for reading and have a fabulous day.

OOTD: Styling Shades of Blue

Shades of Blue Image

Blue is one of my favourite colours ever. There is something so cool about the colour blue. I can’t quite explain my love for the colour but I am so in love with it. There is something clean and clear about the colour blue. Many pieces and accessories in my wardrobe are blue in colour and I like it that way but I have to start to reduce the amount of blue items I do have for the sake of variety and options.. In these photos, I also have a few shades of blue in the background. Can you spot them? Lol..

I find blue so easy to style, and that is 1 reason why I wear a lot of it. Here are 5 ways you could style your blue pieces and accessories this summer:

 

Pair with White

You can pair your blue piece with white like I did in this outfit post. A blue top paired with a white skirt or pants always look good.

 

Add Pair

Or you can team up your blue piece with black for a better contrast. Denim paired with black always looks spot on.

 

Wear Stripes

Summer fashion is all about stripes, and the colour blue always looks amazing when paired with stripes. So go for it! You can draw inspiration from my outfit here.

Matchy Matchy

You can always go matchy matchy with blue. Denim on denim always looks fabulous. Just add some black pumps and you are good to go.

 

Prints

Blue always looks good paired with prints. Blue prints on a white base looks effortlessly chic.
