Autumn is the perfect time to start experimenting with layering! This season we have seen trends such as ‘The Renaissance Woman’ grace the catwalks with elaborate, otherworldly looks that only the fearless will dare to replicate - bell sleeves, corsets, velvet, navy style detailing on jackets - the perfect uniform for the extravagant. Taking inspiration from the historic period that was the European Renaissance, designers donned their models in heavy, luxurious fabrics and deep palettes of metallic.
Well we’ve been ahead of this trend for some time now, with our featured velvet hunting jackets, The Spanish Boots Company has a lot to offer to not only equestrians, but fashion followers too! Our autumn essentials list is heavily inspired by those opulent catwalk trends, along with the practical items you need to carry on riding merrily through until winter! Check it out…
- Limited Edition Egality Tweed Jacket
How can we talk renaissance without thinking of our very own Liberty Freedom tweed riding jacket? Double breasted and inspired by the punk rebellion, this naval looking jacket is ideal for covering up and layering in the Autumnal months. Timeless in design and sharp in its tailoring, this Egality jacket could be worn classically on horseback with jodhpurs and riding boots, or it could be vamped up for an empowering look when you’re heading out around town!
- Ladies White Shirt: Filadelphia
It doesn’t get much more Romeo and Juliet looking than with our ruffled white blouse from The Shirt Company. Exude romanticism this fall by dressing up your frills with heavy embellishment and smart slick tailoring. Layer underneath the Egality jacket and team with a gothic lip for a really striking look - whether it’s for in or out of the field.
Ruffles are a huge trend this season - so get your hands on the Filadelphia before it gets snapped up!
Alpine Poncho by Grace and Lace
There is no better way to layer up in Autumn than with an oversized alpine poncho! These are so easy to style; throw them on on top of whatever outfit you have on and pull out their gorgeous colours using lightweight accessories! They’ll keep you cosy and comfortable whilst looking adorable.
Spanish Riding Boots suede: navy (bespoke)
If you want a classic boot with a modern twist, there’s no denying that the colourful collaborations from the Caballeria Collection are going to turn heads. You can personalise these fantastic suede tall boots to combine colours of your desire with the sole of your choosing! Select from vibrant blue, purple and red or neutral green, black, brown and camel and choose a tassel colour too!
- Limited Edition Egality Velvet Jacket: Hunt scene
An investment piece that’s sure to drop a few jaws, is the Limited Edition Egality hunting jacket from Liberty Freedom. Its exquisite velvet printed exterior falls under the spell of the inspirational autumnal renaissance trend, borrowing significant and historic features once again from the period of ‘rebirth’. The vintage print portrays an old British hunting scene - meaning you can wear your heritage visually as well as through the sharp cut!
