Fashion inspiration for the Shooting Season
By Becky Gray
Celebrate the start of the shooting season with some luxurious updates to your shooting attire. Look for the highest quality fabrics in warm shades of mink, chocolate and ochre.
Holland Cooper’s shooting coat is fully functional with an action back and sleeve to allow maximum movement and finished with wax details. A shooting waistcoat is a good piece to invest in. Perfect on warmer autumnal days or layered under a thick coat, this one by Really Wild is made from soft nubuck with deep pockets.
For a more stylish take on traditional breeks, opt for Cordings slim fit cords. They come in a multitude of colours and are a more versatile option.
A good pair of waterproof boots are a must. Wellington makers, Le Chameau, have designed a pair of two-tone leather Goretex boots that could be worn off the field too. Team with Archie Foal shooting socks in Mocha.
Keep accessories simple but exquisite with a silk scarf like this one by Holland and Holland, preferably in a punchy colour like berry red. Swap a hat for one of Indigo & Ivy’s fur headbands. Perfect for keeping toasty outside.
