An Affordable, Lovely Winter Coat By Hayden-Harnett

An Affordable, Lovely Winter Coat By Hayden-Harnett
I’m talking about the “Audrey” ; a twill overcoat with lambskin leather detailing. This coat has a dash of equestrian without being too over the top. To add to its appeal, the Audrey coat is on Hayden-Harnett’s sale docket; priced at $210.40 (from $526).

Hayden-Harnett designs have been featured on shows such as Gossip Girl, and they currently have a special line designed specially for Target on sale now [preview photos of the entire line]; though those pieces are strictly accessory based.



Ingredients For A Top Notch Equestrian Look

Equestrian style lives between that of a military look and Edwardian influence; though more practical than the latter.  Regardless of gender, use a solidly constructed riding boot as the foundation of your look. 

Once you have obtained excellent footwear, pair a coat with tails (possibly a tuxedo jacket); this will give you the formality you’re looking for, while still working with the flat look of the boots.  When it comes to a trouser, try jodhpurs or a skinny pant that will tuck into your boots.  Keep accessories full of hardware like buckles as well, and use lots of leather.
