Mid-season dressing can be a tricky business, temperatures flutter unpredictably and when getting dressed in the morning it’s hard to know what to put on. Should we do brollies and boots? Or sundress and sandals?
Taking 3 of our favourite new season shirts we show you how to master the art of layering ensuring you’re weather ready and style sure.
This streamlined look of tailored shirt, jeans, boots and gilet is classic country chic at its minimal best. The ingredients are simple enough but getting this look right relies on choosing each element very carefully.
Tailoring and fit are critical – get them wrong and you risk looking bulky and boxy.
The Oxford shirt by Schoffel is beautifully tailored and the vertical stripes contribute to a long silhouette, the Islington Gilet is cleverly cut to flatter and the Fairfax and Favour boots pack a high kicking style punch that lifts this outfit out the ordinary.
Smart and Preppy
Shirts layered under sweaters have been the backbone of chic working girls since the 1950s. This knowing preppy look adds a bit of fun to dressing for work. It’s a little bit retro with a touch of crisp, tailored cool thanks to the elegant Dubarry Cottongrass Shirt, worn with the classic Barbour Lambswool vee neck.
The Hamilton tweed skirt is part of a new collection of gorgeous tweed skirts exclusive to A Hume. It’s cut to sit just below the waist in a gentle flattering A-line.
Town and Country
This lovely feminine tattersall shirt is ideal for the shoulder season. Warm enough to wear on it’s own until well into autumn and the perfect under-layer for this gorgeous tailored blazer from Barbour. The long collar perfectly frames the ruffled frill front, the moleskin adds to the luxurious, textured look and the brass buckle adds a touch of autumn glow.
