British Heritage Trend





 





Tweed, plaid and herringbone can only mean one thing, the British Heritage trend is here. A look fit to take a stroll in the countryside, or as recently shown, fit to rock most of the Autumn/Winter 2012 catwalk shows. Throw on a tweed pencil skirt, white chiffon blouse and a boxy jacket – Coco Chanel is our muse.

Burberry Prorsum, Chloé and Tommy Hilfiger channelled the style through structured blazers, crisp tapered trousers and long-line coats, adding an edge with a raised collar. Keeping up appearances follows the season’s trend, where looking posh no longer receives a turned up nose. We look for style inspiration from the local horse rider, with hareem pants and knee-high boots featured heavily in the Tommy Hilfiger collection. We also look to masculine figures for British Heritage inspiration and unsurprisingly our grandma’s! Brits do it best. God save the queen!
