AW12 Trend – English Countryside

This is a nod back to the days of fishing and shooting, with lots of blazers in tweed and plush warm materials. Think Downton Abbey on a horse. On the catwalk, the most obvious trend setter for this style was Burberry. But we did see others display the country-style ladylike chic.

I love this bow AND stripey skirt ensemble and the simplicity of this tweed coat look

What do you think? Will you be investing in a tweed style coat this season?

Have fun! Love Ali x

Christys’ Hats for Liberty, London

Christys' Chicago Trilby, Liberty, London

Christys’ hats are surely the most quintessential of English style all packaged up in a beautiful hat box. Established in 1773 and still produced in England, these beautiful hats are crafted with care and love using traditional millinery techniques.

This burgundy narrow brim Chicago Trilby (£65) is perfectly stylish for a day around town with a blazer combo or a countryside jaunt. Or pick up a flat cap or a bowler hat, whichever headpiece takes your fancy.
