English Fashion – How to Get Dressed Right

Rather cool temperatures and many rainy days dominate the climate in England; therefore, thick fabrics and warm materials are more likely to be found in fashion. Accessories such as umbrellas, hats, gloves or scarves are the perfect match with such an outfit.

1. Cord trousers

Cord is a warm and hard-wearing fabric, which, similar to jeans, used to be standard equipment for workers. In the 50s the image change followed and from then on was carried by architects and intellectuals.

2. Harris Tweed Jacket

Harris Tweed’ is a woven form of tweed and is still made by hand on the loom on the Scottish island of Harris. Only after repeated testing by experts does the fabric receive the special quality mark. Typical for tweed are the different, harmonious colour inlays.
