‘Country Heritage’ is one of the biggest trends out there this autumn and it’s all thanks to theBurberry Prorsum Fall 2012 show.
Think tweed, feathers, furs, flat caps, equestrian-style boots and waxed quilted jackets, these looks are not only for the shooting and fishing brigade, they’re for Londoners who barely know their flora from their fauna.
The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012 show took the staple wardrobe pieces required for braving the great outdoors and put a cool new spin on them as only the maestro Christopher Bailey can.
They showed traditional tweed with arts and crafts inspired woven florals, added cute velvet bow belts around the models’ waists and introduced the now signature owl emblem (along with other woodland creatures including foxes, dogs and sparrows) onto jumpers and t-shirts.
If you can’t afford the real deal, the high street is full of look-alikes that give a nod the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012 show. A cute owl jumper is one way to invest in the look, but you could also try a tweed hat with feathers or a tweed/waxed coat or jacket.
The colder weather means chunky knits can be worn with tweed skirts and trousers, and incorporate two trends and once with 60s style pointed flats.
Like the Burberry models, wear your hair gently waved and keep your make up natural – try dewy skin, nude lips and a smudge of colour on the eyes.
