Trendy in Tweed
Once exclusively the domain of countryside types, tweed has enjoyed a mainstream revival thanks to the trend for all things heritage. Here’s how to look stylish in tweed for a day at the races…
For a traditional take on the tweed look, go for classic outerwear. Men can’t go wrong with investing in a timeless blazer complete with elbow patches from quintessential English brand Barbour (£249). Ladies should go for a more modern take on this trend with this oversized Diane Von Furstenberg Vincent blazer (£545), perfect for layering up underneath when it gets chilly out on the racecourse.
For footwear solutions to match your tweed look, think equestrian. Riding boots are a stylish staple for the heritage-inclined dresser. Women can go for knee-length riding boots from Dune (£139), they’re not only on-trend but also practical. Office’s men’s Chelsea boots (£110) will quickly become an everyday essential.
For a more head-to-toe look, add in a tweed separate. Ladies should try Next’s skirt with edgy zip detail (£28), the perfect companion to knee-length riding boots. For men, grey tweed trousers from Burton (£70) will ensure your race-day look is a dapper one.
For the finishing touch concentrate on your accessories. Ladies will find a classic leather tote bag in an elegant oak shade from NW3 by Hobbs (£189) a stylish solution for carrying around their race day essentials. Men should look to headwear; Paul Smith’s trilby hat (£115) with feather trim will top off any tweed look.
