Following the previous entry recommending Autumn finery for the chaps here are our recommendations for ladies.
These short sleeved Fair Isle jumpers from Rocket Originals are perfect for Autumn. Warm enough for the crisp mornings and slim enough to be worn with a cardigan for the cooler evenings. They are made in the UK from an original 1940s pattern and come in three colourways.
The Rocket Originals jumpers are made from acrylic yarn which means they are machine washable.
If you prefer your woolies to be wooly then look no further than The Spirit of Shetland. Their Fair Isle jumpers, cardigans and accessories are all 100% wool and hand frame knitted. The website is not the most user friendly but we can vouch for the quality of the goods.
On crisp Autumn days you may want to go for a tramp in the countryside, and what better way to keep your legs protected from brambles then these 1940s style trousers from 20th Century Foxy.
However, if you are a skirts kind of lady (as I am) you may find the Bloomsbury skirt from Old Town more your style.
This simple a-lined skirt is lined and available in a variety of tweeds. wool serge and corduroy.
And lastly, what to wear on your feet. Believe it or not, despite the abundance of shoes available, decent, quality shoes for ladies can be hard to find. Almost all shoes are designed to be worn for a few months and discarded.
So I am hoping these shoes from Clarks will withstand a few trips to the cobblers and not wear through too quickly.
