Leopard print is set to become your second skin this season, as one of fashion’s most enduring trends once again takes centre stage. We’ve made no secret of our love for taking a walk on the wild side, from bold spots to more muted hues, especially when the print comes courtesy of the classic leopard print coat.

This Michael Kors Leopard Print Drape Wrap Coat is more Kate Moss than Pat Butcher and we can’t get enough of its effortless new take on a classic style. The combination of a leopard print coat, jeans and leg-lengthening ankle boots never ceases to hit the sartorial spot, and the exaggerated collar of this particular Michael Kors style makes it one of the most unique we’ve seen this season.

If leopard print is a look that phases you, there are certain fashion formulas guaranteed to take away your fear of failure. Firstly, double-denim works surprisingly well beneath the print, especially in mid-wash shades, whilst spray-on black jeans and a simple black crew neck jumper will put the focus firmly on the coat.

They have served as the status symbol of China’s Terracotta Warriors, mopped the sweat from the necks of the Ancient Romans, and helped Beethoven to snare the love of his life. For little more than a simple slip of fabric, the humble scarf has one hell of a history.

Today, it’s role is neither ceremonial nor cleansing. Instead, the scarf is tasked with meeting two simple briefs. Firstly, and most importantly if it’s your Nan you are talking to, the scarf is there to ward of those winter colds. Where the flu jab and vitamin tablets fail, the scarf flourishes at fighting the autumn chill and the man flu which inevitably accompanies it.   

Secondly, and far more importantly in our eyes, the scarf is an accessory. Scarves are serious business this season and they’re being worn more ways than ever. From slender snaking styles worn with tuxedo jackets, to blanket scarves styled with leather jacket and woollen ones worn with winter coats; we never met a scarf we didn’t like. Wear your scarf long and loose or knot it at the neck for a look befitting of a city-slicker. Tucked in is the new hung out too, so slide your scarf inside the lapels of your jacket or into the neck of your cashmere knit.

Make like Marlon Brando in ‘The Wild One’ this winter, with the Belstaff Trialmaster Boot.

The biker boot is as relevant now as it was way back when Brando first rolled into Carbonville and, whether your weekends are spent on two wheels or otherwise, this is the one shoe style you need in your winter footwear armoury.

Brando himself may have favoured a rather unconventional canvas cap with his biker boots, but if we were you we’d give it a miss and look towards modern-day menswear icon and long-time Belstaff ambassador, David Beckham, for inspiration. Equally as known for being fashion forward as he is for being fancy-footed, Beckham has made the biker look his own, pairing his buckled biker boots with well-worn jeans, basic marl tees and Belstaff leathers. It can take years to get your biker boots looking like they’ve spent years being worn day-in-day-out, their leather suitably tarnished to avoid that fresh from the box gleam. Give the hard work a miss by opting for the pre-weathered leather of the Belstaff Trialmaster Short Boot in Cognac, brand new in store now at Robinsons of Bawtry.

If you only add one pair to your footwear arsenal for AW16, make it the Belstaff Trailmaster Boot. Visit us in store today to shop more accessories and clothing from the heritage leather brand. 


Whilst nothing beats the thrill of slipping into that brand new dress or throwing a brand new coat over your shoulders for the very first time, we’re also fans of having a carefully collated collection of faithful favourites in our wardrobes. While the trends come and go, our faithful favourites remain, waiting in our wardrobes until we call on them once again, knowing that they’ll never fail to bring maximum style with minimum effort. When weekends are manic with errands and weekdays are all work, work, work, these are the pieces that’ll leave you feeling put together without so much as a second thought.


The camel coat is the unicorn of the outerwear world. One of few pieces that looks equally as stylish dressed down as it down dressed up, the camel coat is timeless in every sense of the word but never anything but on trend. To make sure you wear yours for years, opt for a mid-length style with a belted waist or single-breasted collar. Skinny dark denim, black shift dresses, Breton stripes, layered knitwear and chambray shirts all work well, in fact there’s barely a look the camel coat can’t elevate.


For luxe layering with a sophisticated 70s appeal, this season is all about the fur gilet; it’s our wardrobe hero when it comes to staying warm without resorting to your heavy winter coat. This cream number from Armani Jeans takes the guess work out of transitional layering, pairing a simple shirt with an ivory fur waterfall collar gilet. Dark jeans and black riding boots complete the look.


Hands up if you feel a little burst of excitement the first time you slip up the zip on your favourite black boots? There’s something oh-so-satisfying about slipping aside your sandals and reaching for your riding boots. Our favourites for AW16 are by Michael Kors; sleek black leather, decorated with subtle gilded accents and the signature MK detailing that sets them apart from the rest. Even those of us who hesitate at a lack of heel will find themselves converted by this classic style.


The supermarket shelves are lined with tinned sweets and glitter baubles, and it is no longer feasible to try and deny that the festivities are just around the corner. Christmas party season appears to start earlier every year and more occasions means more outfits. For client dinners, Christmas markets and even the big day itself, this ESCADA Lace V-Neck Camisole fits the bill when you’re all sequinned out. Scalloped lace in navy or burgundy promises the prettiest of respite from the endless Christmas glitz.

Which buy now, wear forever pieces are on your list this winter? Visit Robinsons of Bawtry today to fill the spaces in your wardrobe with AW16 styles from some of fashion’s biggest names.
