Equestrian Looks: The Vintage Trend
Equestrian attire is a powerhouse of classic British tailoring, blending function, tradition and style perfectly. We recently covered the popular “bling” trend in equestrian fashion, but the more classic, traditional look is also making waves, possibly off the back of the vintage trend currently so visible in the fashion world.
You can of course pick up true vintage riderwear quite easily from markets and online, but it is often quite costly, with poorer quality fabric than contemporary riding attire. Vintage look riderwear is an ideal alternative. Here is a short selection of our favourite items channelling the vintage trend, all available through us online:
EQvvs Leather and Woven Cotton Riding Gloves
These gloves are finished in mahogany and cream – perfect for an on-trend vintage inspired look. Constructed from quality leather and thick woven cotton, the gloves are durable yet breathable, and additionally feature Velcro fastenings at the wrists for a snug fit.
Made from quality leather, these sophisticated Norfolk riding boots nod to the vintage trend perfectly, with their sleek lines, handsome contouring, and stylish dressage cut tops. These field style boots feature full-length zips and press-stud closures for an easy fit.
Tailored specifically for competition riding, this classic riding jacket features a pure tweed wool outer in green twill or red and chestnut overcheck. With a double-vented back, clean lines and fuller front panels, this item offers a flattering yet comfortable fit.
