Heritage Chic For Your Body Shape

A great daytime look for Autumn/Winter 2011 is a trend known as Heritage, where the 1940’s meets Polo Club, taking clothing and details from horsey gear with a fashion twist. Keep it clean and bright with block colours, quilting and satins.

The Love Label Quilted Jacket is a brilliant fashion version of the traditional quilted jacket. Worn with a bright coloured top and Love Label Zip Detail Jersey Jodphurs this is a look for the young who have long coltish legs.

Or, go for heritage tweed style fabrics and warm colours for a more country estate look.  I love this South Herringbone Jacket and you would look very Heritage Chic if you wear it over this 1940’s style Love Label Bird Print Vintage Dress

To be totally on trend invest in a cape coat this season. You can’t go wrong with classic camel or black like this South Cape Coat or choose checks with this Fearne Cotton Checked Tartan Cape Coat and as the weather gets cooler add a pair of elbow length leather gloves.

If the cape is a little too fashion for you go for this very wearable camel Cape Coat with cape detailing by Coleen that can be worn by all shapes and sizes. Jodhpurs style leggings in beige like these Love Label Panel High Waisted Leggings are ideal with these coats as you want to keep the legs slim when there is so much detail and fabric up top. Perfect for apple shapes and rectangular figures as these girls usually have great slim legs and a little bum.

Pear and very hourglass figures would do better in a pair of tailored shorts like these Love Label Tailored Shorts with thick tights and boots like or these South Belted Tweed Shorts as they are a little bit longer in the leg and more wearable for stylish thirty (and forty) somethings.

Chelsea boots are massively on the up again and these Love Label Bobo Chelsea Ankle Boots with a stonking great heel are spot on for lengthening the legs or play it a bit safer with these gorgeous knee length Hush Puppies Marshfield Knee High Boots. I heart the buckles and those wear all day heels.

Finish off with a cool satchel like this Pepe Jeans Satchel or a mini saddle bag like this Oasis Cross-body Vintage Bag and you are hot to trot.
