Heritage Fashion celebrates traditional fabrics with a modern twist, and autumn is the perfect time for designers to showcase their latest creations.
The problem is that you can overdo this look and end up looking like Guy Ritchie and Madonna on a night out. The best way to achieve the heritage fashion look is to wear one key element and then accessorise with other pieces. So for instance, pick out one piece in tweed or checked material and then compliment with plainer items.
Here are ten of the best pieces in the heritage fashion look:
Shirt Dress – £17.99
A lovely casual way to incorporate the heritage fashion look in your wardrobe by adding this simple checked shirt dress. It features buttons up the front, long sleeves, and a drawstring at the waist to cinch you in. Gorgeous little cuffs that are buttoned and the dress falls a little longer at the back
Rust Check Mini Skirt – £19.99
New Look always deliver when it comes to the latest fashion, and this rust check skirt is a young and playful take on heritage fashion. Team it with a plain black turtle neck and relive your preppy school days.
Check Knitted Dress – £56.00
You won’t get a better tailored dress anywhere else, as Warehouse tick all the boxes when it comes to fitted pieces. This is a relaxed fit in a gorgeous wool knit in this season’s colours. Dress it down for the day or add heels for a night out, really versatile.
Wallace And Sewell Dart Scarf – £65.00
If you don’t want to go over the top with your heritage fashion look then adding a scarf in a check print is a great way to incorporate it. This is a luxurious knitted scarf made with 100% pure merino wool and features a fringed hem and a dart design.
Leather Riding Boots – £88.00
You have to have a pair of riding boots if you want to complete your heritage look and these ones from Oasis are simply gorgeous. Buttery soft leather that will age beautifully over time, and will go with almost anything, including a jeans and chunky jumper combo.
