How to wear the heritage trend

The heritage trend is huge right now. Although aspects of it have been around for a few seasons (such as Barbour coats and chunky knits), it's only this season that the pieces are being drawn together. Taking its inspiration from English country house style, this trend is both classy and quirky.

How to nail the heritage trend

The key piece in a heritage outfit is a good coat or jacket. Quilted jackets, tweed, herringbone and plaid are all top options. For inspiration, think of equestrian influences and English country house style.

Mid-to tall length boots, jodphurs, chunky knit Aran jumpers are key pieces for your wardrobe.

Heritage trend accessories

The heritage trend calls for some great accessories! Hats are big - especially flat caps and berets. Satchels, whether plain or patterned, are huge, as are braces. As for jewellery, look for pocket watches and bronzed gold pieces.

Key colours for the heritage trend

Think earthy, autumnal colours. Burnt oranges, rusty browns, deep mustards, forest greens and burgandys are in right now.

Key designers rocking the heritage trend

The catwalks of Ralph Lauren, Paul Smith, Stella McCartney, Carolina Herrera and House of Holland all featured heritage looks very prominently. On the catwalks, designers kept things feminine with long skirts and tailored capes.

Top high street shops stocking the heritage trend

Topshop, Miss Selfridge, River Island and Marks and Spencers are great for all things heritage right now. It's easy to put together a cheap high street outfit around one investment piece - like a coat, cape or pair of boots.
