The Way To Wear It: Country

And to the second of my Britain's Next Top Model trends; Country Chic.

The high street has gone mad for this trend! Its wearable with the main influences being country pursuits. It's easy and it's practical but should be worn with a ladylike/glamorous twist. It's okay to look like you have been inspired by the queen out for a ride but you don't want to look like you're heading to Badminton horse trials.

The colour palate include shades greys, browns, greens and dark reds. If you are a print lover stick to florals or horse related ones in autumnal colours. The key pieces for this look are the Aviator Jacket, the most famous one being the Burberry but there are loads on the high street. Other items to invest in would be chunky knits and tan boots; they'll add to the look this season and are likely be pulled out of the wardrobe for next winter.

The Way To Wear It; On The Catwalk

Make your body-warmer work by styling it with something other than bootcut jeans. Make sure it's fitted and a dark colour like this one seen at Dries van Noten.
People may ask where your horse is but Ralph Lauren makes Jodphurs work by teaming them some heels and jewellery.
That famous Burberry aviator. It's warm and it's stylish; a great alternative to our leather jackets. Wear with Jeans during the day and then throw over a dress at night. Be brave and step away from black, some of the best aviator jackets out there are in greens and browns.
Wear the look to work. Stick to the colour theme but choose smart trousers and a well tailored coat, as seen here at Gucci
The weather has really turned over the last few weeks and everyone is dying to get into a chunky knit. This look seen at D&G would be made wearable and perfect for cold winter conditions if worn with some skinny jeans.
The Way To Wear It; Next Season
Hermes take inspiration from Horse Riding every season (they make great saddles, hats and whips). Through in a bit of African Safari inspiration and the look has evolved for next season.
At 3.1 Philip Lim, he put his models in white wedges, made the knits thinner and bared there legs to make the look more appropriate for summer.
