Every season or so, a trend will emerge that is really just a refresh of something timeless. This autumn / winter, that trend is the heritage cloth and you don’t have to look much further than the high street for inspiration. From the classic, masculine pattern of a Prince of Wales check, to monochrome dogtooth and houndstooth tweeds, these are the pieces to weave into your wardrobe this season.
Checked pieces are featured in most high street collections this season, and this Warehouse skirt is no exception. A classic, high-waisted cut, it will last well into winter and the next. Dress up with a contrast blazer and blouse for business, or dress down with a soft knit and some favourite boots for that Sunday casual vibe.
Paired here with a camel crew neck jumper, also by Warehouse. The fluted sleeves of the coat carry one of summer’s most popular trends into this season, and the contrast of the burgundy red bag ties together this classic autumnal palette.
Pair blush pinks with autumnal burgundies for a fresh, seasonal update. This checked shift dress, with it’s brown and midnight blue hues, draws in the deeper red tones of the bag with the transitional coat – an easy way to get more wear from your spring / summer pieces.
Paired, again, with the trusty Stuart Weitzman 50/50 boot, this look could also be made office-appropriate with low-denier sheer tights and courts, or go from day to night with a block-heel ankle boot.
