Heritage Charm

blog37 blog48 blog30

From tweeds to checks, faux fur to chunky knits, this enduring trend offers something for everyone.

With a wear-forever style which has an everlasting appeal, heritage pieces are traditional fabrics in classis cuts which can be worn year on year.

Layering is key but it doesn’t have to be messy – add personality with texture, pattern and colour.

Opt for country blazers, classic tailored trousers with checked shirts and chunky knitwear, in khaki and camel hues mixed with black, greys and deep red tones to balance the look.

We have collated some key looks which we feel epitomise the British heritage style with all the clothing available from The Clothes Line.
