STYLING

THREE WAYS TO WEAR THE NEW HERITAGE

By Caroline Ferry, 1 October 2018

Is it the weather, or is it because of all the great royal dramas on TV this year? We’re not sure, but there are definite Balmoral vibes to the AW18 drops right now. There’s silk scarves being worn on actual necks for once and – stick with us here – some really nice anoraks are cropping up, too. For some styling inspiration to help you bring that royals-gone-bad feel to your autumn wardrobe, here are three ways to give the trend a go…

As with all of these looks, the key number is two. Keep your new trend pieces to that magic number and you'll never veer into fancy dress territory. This saccharine sweet jacket and silk scarf still look like a bit of you when worn with a chunky belt, your favourite plaid pants and your trusty chunky-sole dad sneaks.

One sure-fire way to never feel overdressed nor underdressed for an occasion is to truly keep 'em guessing with your outfit. This look works so well because with each layer you peel back, it feels totally brand new. Jacket and hiking boots on for a walk around the grounds (read: to your local corner shop) but later on lose the anorak for a leopard-print dress and shirt combo that's a little bit ladies who lunch, and quite a bit punk too. Weirdly wonderful.

Here's another stellar example of how, with just a few tweaks, an on-paper prissy outfit can actually feel very cool. The cardie and loafers may sound goody two shoes, we'll give you that, but add in a high-shine leather mini, sporty – and do make sure they are sporty – socks and a v fashion lightweight turtleneck and boom, issa look. A very sweet, but still sassy look.
