Whether you’re a seasoned country dweller or an urban soul seeking refuge in rural escapes, this blog is your guide to staying warm and fashionable in the heart of the countryside.

The Rise of Tweed: A Winter 2023 Must-Have Fabric

When it comes to timeless fabrics, tweed is a name that always comes up. It has been around for centuries, and its popularity never seems to fade. The texture, the pattern, and the durability make tweed a perfect choice for winter wear. But, it’s not just about practicality, it’s also about style and sophistication. 

In 2023, tweed is a strong look, and fashion enthusiasts are already jumping on board. Designers are experimenting with different styles, patterns and colours, making tweed jackets, coats, and trousers a must-have for any fashion-conscious individual. 

Pair your tweed jacket with a cosy sweater and a pair of jeans for a casual yet chic look. Or, dress it up with a pair of tailored trousers and a crisp shirt for a more formal occasion. The possibilities are endless, and the result is always stylish and sophisticated. 

So, if you’re looking for a timeless and durable fabric that never goes out of style, then tweed is definitely worth investing in. It’s not just a fabric, it’s a symbol of sophistication, elegance, and romance.

Layering Is Key

There’s something special about the art of layering. It’s not just practical, but it’s also a fashion statement that adds depth and personality to your outfit. And while it may seem daunting at first, mastering the art of layering can take your fashion game to a whole new level. 

The key to successful layering is starting with a base layer first that gets close to your skin, keeping you warm and comfortable. From there, add a stylish sweater or cardigan, playing with texture and colour to create a unique look that reflects your personality. Finally, top it off with a classic country jacket, adding a touch of sophistication to your outfit. 

By layering your clothing, you’re able to adjust your outfit to fit the weather and your personal preference. Feeling too warm? Take off a layer. Feeling too cold? Add another one. 

The best bit? You can mix and match different pieces to create a new outfit every day, experimenting with different combinations until you find the perfect look. So, if you’re looking to step up your fashion game, give layering a try. With a little experimentation and creativity, you’ll be amazed at the looks you can create.

Knits: A Must-Have for Winter

Nothing says winter better than a knit sweater. Not only does knitwear provide the necessary warmth, but they also add a touch of rustic charm to your winter wardrobe. 

When it comes to knits, they’re perfect to add to any outfit – nice and versatile, you can add them with your favourite jeans or leggings for a casual yet chic look. Not only does a knit have visual appeal but also they help to trap heat and provide insulation. 

Comfortable, warm and stylish, make sure to add a knit to your wardrobe. Not only will you stay warm and cosy, but you’ll also look sophisticated and find layering works nice and easy with your outfits. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different patterns and styles to find the one that suits you best. Trust us, you won’t regret it!

Warm Accessories

If you’re a country clothing enthusiast, you know that the right accessories can complete your look and keep you warm on chilly days. From wide-brimmed hats that add a touch of sophistication to your outfit to cosy beanie hats that keep you warm in the field, there are plenty of options to choose from. 

This year, woollen accessories are all the rage. Not only are they super soft and comfortable, they’re also sustainable and eco-friendly. Opt for woollen hats, scarves, and gloves in classic colours like black, grey, and beige, or go bold with bright hues like red and blue. You can even mix and match different colours and patterns to create a unique look that’s all your own. At Walker and Hawkes, we have plenty of fabrics, patterns and styles to choose from. 

Whether you’re out in the field, on a walk in the countryside, or just running errands in town, don’t forget to accessorise with warm and stylish pieces that will keep you cosy and looking sharp all winter long.

Gilets – The Perfect Winter Layering Piece

Gilets are the unsung heroes of any winter wardrobe. While keeping the wearer warm, they bring an element of charm to your outfit, but mostly, they provide a lot of warmth and insulation from the cold. 

What makes gilets so versatile is their ability to complement a wide range of styles and outfits. Whether you’re popping out for a casual brunch or hitting the fields, a gilet can work wonders when layering up or down to suit your warmth. 

One of the best things about gilets is their ability to keep you warm without restricting your movement. Unlike bulky jackets or coats, gilets allow you to move freely, making them ideal for outdoor activities like shooting, hiking, riding, fishing or even just a good walk with the dog. 

Perfect for layering, gilets can be worn over a sweater or under a jacket for added insulation, or simply wear them over a shirt for a smart-casual feel. Our gilets come in a variety of styles, fabrics, colours and looks – so you can easily find the perfect gilet to match your style and personality.
