Fall/Winter 2015 trends: British heritage

This late fall fashion season calls for comfort and coziness while designers and brands immerse themselves in the sophisticated and timeless elegance of the British heritage. While it might be commonly associated with a casual, country style functional outfit, this trend can give you the confidence of an edgy yet soft look. We built 5 outfits to show you how to give a new meaning to the British Heritage fabrics.

Wear a tweed blazer over a 70’s flower print dress or loose silk top. Tip – I bought mine from the men’s department at H&M. I find this masculine cut to be more sophisticated and sexy when worn by a woman.

Experiment with the silhouette and wear your favorite wide pants with a chunky sweater. Pair the combo with brogues or classic oxford shoes for a tomboy-inspired look.
