We have had some nice weather to enjoy this summer, but with the unpredictability of our wonderful British weather it always pays to be prepared. Ahh the wonderful British weather having the ability to go from spring to summer to autumn to winter all in 24 hours, so you need to ensure your clothing is up to the challenge. With us gradually getting closer and closer to the most unpredictable time of the year, we thought we would give you a brief guide for women on how to dress for this highly changeable weather.
No one likes getting wet so make sure you stay dry and warm in a waterproof jacket that’s lightweight, functional and fashionable. Whilst we carry a wide selection of jackets from active outdoor waterproofs to high fashion Barbour trench coats, such as the reversible Outdoor Winter Bonnington Waterproof, and everything in between, everyone should have a waterproof jacket at hand this season. Whatever your style, make sure you chose one that is functional and aesthetically pleasing to you; you want to enjoy wearing your waterproof whilst looking fashionable in the rain.
For when the sun is shining and the rain has gone away for another day, every fashion forward women should have a beautiful casual jacket to hand. This season is all about Tartan and Tweed and what better way is there to look effortlessly cool by slipping on a fitted Barbour Tweed Clover Blazer, featuring fitted silhouette, notched lapel and it is 100% wool, this jacket is perfect for a causal look in the day or dressed up with skinny jeans and high heels for a smart casual night look.
Perfect for the in-between days when a coat seems to heavy but a jumper not enough, gilets are not only great for wearing whilst enjoying your many outdoor pursuits they also look very fashionable when worn around town. We love the brand new Barbour Calvary Quilted Gilet in Juniper, with every shade of blush and hot pink seen on the catwalks for a surprising splash of winter colour, this Gilet is very on trend. The Gilet featuring the classic Barbour quilted style, funnel neck, and enclosed zip fastening all finished off with a streamlined silhouette.
Layers, layers and more layers. What is the key to any successful outfit this time of the year is????….. Yes you got it Layers! Knitwear is any wardrobe staple and shouldn’t be over looked hastily. For warmer days think thin breathable layers such as cotton crew necks and cardigans. For the months when it begins to cool go for fashionable chunky knits, we love this white Barbour Bethwith Sweater featuring a wide boat neck, Aran style knit and 55% Lamb’s Wool and 45% Cotton composition you can be sure you are investing in a jumper for life… Not just for winter.
