A Guide To This Season's Winter Fashions

Not everyone is a dedicated follower of fashion but, nonetheless, most people like to stay abreast of current trends in the fashion world. We generally, a note of a couple of fashion shoots a la mode magazines, read a couple of online articles and inspect the newest shop window displays on our occasional excursions to the main street. Because the winter style guide has slowly appropriated the magazines and therefore the shop windows during the last month approximately, we take a glance at what's on offer and whom it'll suit best.

Although we all love summer, clothes for winter are literally much more of a delight for both the designer and therefore the wearer. This is often due, in large part, to their layering ability. Suddenly an entirely new world exposes for us as we realise that we will wear a gorgeous figure-hugging top, over layer it with a long-sleeved loose tunic of a special length and finish it off with a knitted cardigan. Even more enjoyable is that the incontrovertible fact that none of those items needs a match. We have a choice of meticulously matching the colours in our layers (which can look extremely tasteful) or deliberately choosing colours that clash in a beautiful way.

This winter the styles are clearly defined as either 'heritage' or 'urban' and both have their own attractions. Whether you lean more toward one or the opposite will depend, in part, on your lifestyle but also on your own preferences. The designs available within the heritage ranges of winter clothes for ladies are within the most beautiful berry colours one could imagine. They're rich and vibrant and compliment the season perfectly and during a very natural way. There's a sense that the very countryside around us has been woven into the clothes. They feel British and of excellent quality and definitely vintage-inspired. For women, the incorporation of florals into the designs adds an additional dimension of prettiness not ordinarily seen in winter clothes. The winter clothes for men offer great similarity within the colours but rather than florals, they provide up rich herringbones, tweeds and checks to bring us that very same feeling of superior quality and Britishness.

Moving onto the urban ranges, we are confronted with sleekness, power and modernity. No nature-loving happening here, this is often all about city life and culture. The ranges exude a sense of professional youth mixed with sophistication and excitement. The very colours themselves are strong, dark charcoals and slates, graphites and blacks. Embellishments feature heavily, lifting the dark colours to new levels and enabling the garments to literally sparkle as they move from the workplace of the day to the town nightlife of bars and restaurants. Fabrics are exciting too, wools and leathers are seamlessly combined in new ways to challenge our perceptions of how things need to be.
