Layering: Our 3 top tipsOctober 2019
Putting together a fashionable outdoors-ready outfit can be far easier said than done. Layering is key, and there’s more to it than throwing your heaviest coat over your thickest jumper.
Done right, layering is a brilliant way to combine some of your favourite autumn/winter pieces and create new outfits. Stock up on lightweight layers, luxury knitwear and thermal underwear to provide a warm, cosy base, then try a statement piece over the top; you’ll soon see that staying toasty needn’t mean compromising on style.
We’ve put together some of our top tips to help you get it right, ensuring you look and feel elegant throughout the season.

Choose a quality winter coat
Every winter wardrobe needs a ladies’ coat in a timeless cut. Whether you love bold, standout colours and patterns or would prefer something a little more subtle, we offer plenty of options.
Bright swathes of colour look wonderful over the top of printed tops and dresses, while neutral camel looks great against cream, green, and brown. Whatever your style, be sure to choose quality; a well-made coat will last years when treated with care.
Ready? Not quite. Swirl a thick, woolly scarf about your neck and slip into a pair of sleek leather gloves for a sophisticated finish. Now you’re prepared for anything the British weather might throw at you.
