The autumn/winter season and heritage looks go hand in hand and this year is no exception; picture tweed tailoring juxtaposed with muted wild flower prints in flowing fabrics for a contemporary Lady of the Manor feel.

Get the most out of your wardrobe by taking dresses from the warmer months into autumn and beyond with a bit of artful layering. Invest in your tailoring – try a checked jacket – that will work as well with jeans and a simple t-shirt as it will over dresses.

Work the trend top-to-toe with velvet and patent accessories to build up textures, complementing this eclectic look with an air of Her Majesty at Balmoral meets city girl at Soho Farmhouse.

Style Tip:

As the seasons transition, try a modest midi dress under a chunky knit with a silk neck scarf and patterned tights; simply build up the layers with long boots and wool (or faux fur) coats as the temperature drops.

High street hit:  H&M’s collaboration with Morris & Co sees iconic botanical prints from the William Morris archive re imagined in a capsule collection including dresses, blouses, trousers and silk scarves styled with cosy knits and checks.
