New Layers For A New Season

The arrival of cooler weather is nigh, meaning its time to find your essential cold-weather style. But before you tearfully wave goodbye to your summer shirts and push them into the back of your mind, consider incorporating into your winter wardrobe. Yes, we’re talking layering. Don’t jump headfirst into the layering pool, make yourself familiar with these simple guidelines.

Lightest weight first This is just basic. Start with your shirt, add a A textural cable-knit and top it all off with a jacket.

Pick your colours wisely Go for a lighter colour base and work darker as you work your way outwards. Once you have established the main piece - construct the rest of the outfit around it.

More layers means more options, new dimensions and more chances to put a unique spin of your style. Just bear in mind, comfort is the rule. Use your best judgement. Feel like you can barley move under all that clothing? then its time to lose some layers.

The best dressed bear in the world. Suave yet cuddly. Innocent yet sophisticated. Since making his debut in 1991 he has been written about in leading newspapers, mingled alongside international celebrities and made countless appearances in the world of Ralph Lauren. Wherever he may roam, the Polo Bear remains beloved. A whimsical, just slightly mysterious complement to the iconic signature Polo Pony. After all, who doesn’t adore a teddy bear?

We love to wear ours teamed with a classic Ralph Lauren shirt underneath and a pair of our favorite jeans.

THE ROBINSONS GUIDE TO FINDING YOUR PERFECT WINTER COAT

The first snow of the year has fallen and it is officially big coat season. Your coat is the most important item of clothing you will wear all winter, and probably the most expensive thing you’ll buy all season, so we’re on hand to make sure you choose wisely when it comes to outerwear that is capable of weathering all storms.

First up is the formal single-breasted style that is currently experiencing a resurgence by order of the Peaky Blinders. The popularity of the Birmingham boys has seen vintage inspired, gentlemanly styling return to the forefront of fashion and the single-breasted coat is a surprisingly wearable way to tap into the trend. As smart with your suit as it is casual with your cosy knits, the long-line will lengthen the body and a slim cut will flatter. If you’re harbouring a secret man crush on Mr Shelby, as we all are at the moment, a single-breasted jacket by the likes of Ralph Lauren and Hugo Boss will replicate his stylish swagger and bring his vintage look bang up to date for you to take into the new season.

Next on the list is the Belstaff leather. Luxury heritage leathers from the British stars of styling are top of our Christmas list, thanks to their undulating appeal season after season. Of course, all Belstaff leathers aren’t created equal. There’s the Harley Davidson-ready Weybridge with its biker styling and there is the Trialmaster with its country casual cut, practical pockets and longer line, to name but two of our favourite styles. The beauty of a Belstaff is that you will love it as much in ten winters’ time as you do this December.

Finally, we have the padded jacket or the puffa as they were better known in the Nineties. Fortunately, the cosy style has come a long way since the days of East 17 and all. There’s an effortless edge to streetwear inspired styles like the padded jacket that makes it our go-to for days when we need to look smart without wasting time and effort on outfit planning. The padded jacket looks cool and keeps you warm; we’re looking to Ralph Lauren for ours this winter.
