Having two riders in the family (although one is currently out injured) we were delighted at the recent success of the British Equestrian teams at the Olympics. So it seems fitting that one of the trends of autumn/winter 2012 is equestrian inspired. It’s a look that requires tailored and nipped in tweed jackets, tight fitting jodhpurs or trousers, white shirts and polished leather riding boots. These pieces are starting to filter on to the high street with riding boots at most price points and saddle bag inspired handbags. As they have done for the past few seasons, Boden have produced a range of British tweed jackets that can be worn for early autumn days with a T-shirt and quilted jackets worn with cable jumpers when the weather turns cooler.
Rather than going all out with jodhpurs, tweed jacket and riding boots, select one or two pieces to update your existing wardrobe. Here’s how to wear this look now and later as the weather cools down:
So many pieces here I would like to see in my wardrobe – the LK Bennett red jacket, all 3 scarves (of course) and a pair of black riding boots, all perfect capsule wardrobe items. Will you be wearing the equestrian look?
