Thrift Inspiration..............Net-A-Porter and Vintage Style for Heritage Dressing

Hi there!! Heritage dressing for this season is not only super stylish, but practical, functional and so very versatile if the right key piece is picked. 
A wool tweed jacket is definitely my pick of the season and as usual this can be found from designer right through to high street- I love these from Net-A-Porter who have a lovely range of wool tweed items in a range of different colours and styles:




Browsing this trend from designers to high street this season has really inspired me to 'Shop Vintage'. What inspires me so much about vintage for this trend is the sheer quality of fabric and that a lot of wool and tweed items are made in Great Britain. On my hunt for the key 'heritage' piece this season, my key requirements were pure wool fabric, luxe tailoring and to be made in the British Isles.
This jacket ticks all the boxes-it is a recent vintage find by Burberry and is not only 100% wool it is also made in England. I love the attention to detail too- it has a cute velvet collar, leather buttons on the cuffs and the front and it is a perfect 'boyfriend' style, ideal for keeping warm with chosen layers underneath.


The colour of the jacket is more 'blue' and it goes perfectly with skinny jeans and my favourite jean style of the moment, indigo skinny flares. I found a fabulous pair by J Brand for only £3.99 a couple of weeks ago and they are a perfect accompaniment to this Burberry jacket.

Will you be doing heritage this season? Whether you choose designer, high street or vintage this is certainly a style which if chosen right will be a perfect wardrobe staple for years to come!

I'm all ABOUT "Heritage" :) I've been wearing "Heritage" since the weather turned chilly here. (I'm surprised how many similar jackets I have in my closet and really don't need to hunt for even one more!) Wardrobe-wise, this is my favorite season!

Sharon, the dresses you featured in the prior post were just gorgeous. All of them. Little black dresses are a wardrobe staple of mine.

Oooh, it's lovely (not sure how I missed this!)! I found a recent similar style jacket (black velvet lapels) but in tartan from a charity shop!
