Now that the nights are drawing in and the temperature has lowered, our thoughts turn towards the upcoming season. With so many options to choose from in our Winter Collection, we asked our buyers for their favourite pieces as a little helping hand when deciding what to wear.
Sarah, our wovens buyer, thinks that the grey checked coat "is a lovely piece for all occasions and warm enough for the winter days to come." We couldn't agree more! In versatile shades and a lovely brushed fabric, this is sure to be a winter staple. She goes on to tell us about her other favourite pieces: "In such lovely warm autumnal shades, the longline checked jacket is made of British cloth and British made. An easy piece that looks great with the invert pleat skirt (as shown in the catalogue) but my favourite is to wear it with the Donegal trousers in russet. These three pieces will take you anywhere!" This trio mixes tradition with on-trend colours for exciting winter wardrobe choices.
Michelle, our knitwear and accessories buyer, says it all for us, starting with the heritage scarf: "This large scarf is a fantastic accessory to compliment many outfits. Woven in Scotland in a blend of lambswool and cashmere it makes a stunning statement as part of your wardrobe. Featuring the oversized Cabrach tartan, this lightweight scarf is excellent for wrapping up for practical or stylish reasons. A truly versatile item as it folds down for easy carrying when not in use, making a wonderful travel accessory.” Moving on to the rollneck, she thinks it is "a great purchase for your wardrobe, as it comes in a useful staple colour for the season plus they are made in easycare merino wool, so it is lovely and warm and so easy to care for too!" Finally, she loves the jacquard jumper: "Cashmere and lambswool are blended to give this jacquard jumper a lovely soft hand-feel with a touch of luxury. Designed to complement the co-ordinating jacquard skirt, picking up trailing jacquard of leaves and flora over the shoulders." What else is there to say about these fantastic winter warmers?
Lucy, our jersey buyer has chosen some beautiful pieces, starting with the jersey outfit: "This purple multi floral print will brighten up any dull winter's day. The skirt and top together makes a very elegant outfit but also looks great matched up with plain bottoms and tops." She thinks that the "Sparkling, stardust finish, mock-front cardigan is a perfect essential piece to have in your wardrobe for all those festive occasions you may attend over the winter months." We also love these lively pieces, guaranteed to make a splash at gatherings or simply inject a bit of interest to your existing outfit.
Jane, our Managing Director, opts for simple sophistication: "Two of my favourite items from the winter collection are the checked jacket and matching skirt. Checks are on trend again this winter and this subtle, heritage check that we have tailored into a jacket and straight skirt is a gentle acknowledgement of this trend. It looks fabulous as a smart suit but it is also versatile, in that it works well separated, which gives a more relaxed look. These are great pieces to complement our charcoal trousers and heather cardigan." As if we needed more persuasion to buy this wonderful suit!
