Tips for the Rider: Fall Fashion Season!

It’s Fall Fashion Season!!

 

We love fall fashion at Equestrian Collections! There is so much cross-over between street wear and equestrian wear in the fall.  This is the season we see the most “Fashion-forward” attire.  This year we are seeing lots of rich fabrics and unexpected patterns. Of course, there are always the fall plaids, but we’ve got stripes and animal prints this year as well.  

Here are some of our Favorite new Fall 2012 Fashion items:

Boots: While boots are always a part of equestrian attire, they take on special significance in the fall. In addition to riding in them, we are dealing with wet and cold weather as well. EC has some super new wet weather boots coming in. Always fashion forward, däv has re-designed their signature rain boots, with improved sizing and new colors and patterns. Their däv Equestrian Bit Rain Boots really blur the line between fashion and the barn! Want some winter warmth, but don’t need a heavy duty winter boot? Check out the Goode Rider Fur Rubber Wellies.  

Vests: Vests are perfect for Fall! They add just the right amount of warmth without being too hot or restricting. For a stylish fashion vest, we like the Goode Rider Vintage Vest. If you want something a bit more performance focused, try the Kerrits Oh-So-Lux Vest.   Are you a Fox Hunter? RJ Classics has a beautiful new Tattersall Cubbing Vest.

Hats: When the leaves start to turn, you may need some headgear other than your helmet. Jockey style caps are really in this year. In fact, the Kerrits Knit Cap looks like it was taken straight from the fashion magazines.   If you want to get a little edgy, the Horseware Newmarket Leopard Fleece is a trendy animal print choice.   And you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for warmth either! What could be more fun than the Mountain Horse Calgary Hat – fashion model meets lumber jack!

Shirts and Sweaters: So do you want technical attire, or traditional? We’ve got both! For technical apparel, the FITS Half Zip is perfect – soft, chafe free and flattering. If you like patterns, the Kerrits Horseplay Zip Neck is for you. Prefer more traditional items that you can use as street wear?  The Goode Rider Comfy Cable, and the Lucinda Green Isleham Knit would look just as comfortable on a college campus as they do at the barn.

Jeans and Hoodies – So fashion aside, what do we all REALLY wear in the fall? Denim jeans and hoodies of course! Goode Rider has always had some of the best denim breeches around. This year they are introducing a true jean… if you love the way your Goode Riders fit, you’ll love their Haute Jeans.   And what are jeans without a hoodie? Every year Stirrups comes up with a new crop of logo hoodies. There are some great ones! They’ve jumped on the British bandwagon with “Keep Calm and Ride,” or how about the classic “Life is Simpler at the Barn.”

Jackets - It wouldn't be a fall season without a great medium weight jacket. FITS is introducing their Turnout Jacket.  The plaid may be traditional, but the materials are all tech!  Prefer herringbone to plaid?  Check out the gorgeous wool Pea Coat from Goode Rider. It's  a classic you will wear forever.  If you want to forgo the classics entirely, take a walk on the wild side with the Leopard Camille Jacket from Horseware.
 
And the best part is?  This is just the beginning!  Keep checking back, we'll be getting new fall fashion items for the next two months or so. There will be new items nearly everyday.  Next time, we'll look at what's new for your horse for fall.
