Chic Weekender

Looking back at Fall 1993-  Laura Ashley’s weekend wear wouldn’t be complete without classic British knits and wool coats. Fairisle cardigan, floral scarf (left) and cable stitch sweater and riding breeches (right).

Looking back at Fall 1993- Layers include a fairisle cardigan, suede vest, print skirt and white petticoat (left).

Looking back at Fall 1993- Always great combinations – a cable knit sweater and soft cotton floral skirt (left) or tweed coat, floral tapestry vest, silk shirt with corduroy pants (right).

Looking forward to Fall 2010- Harper’s Bazaar answer for cold weather dressing is lots of warm coats and chunky sweaters. D&G coat and Boss sweater.

Looking forward to Fall 2010- Weekends in the country or city are made for this checked coat, wool pants and fisherman’s sweater all by Tommy Hilfiger.

Looking forward to Fall 2010- Photo perfect in over-sized coat by Etro. Plaid skirt from Rochas and striped sweater at Vince.

  1. That last image has stolen my heart!

  2. I’m with Jane; put those clothes on me and I am out the door. Warm and dreamy and practical.

    I really like the classic “Chic Weekender” clothes and pictures. I would wear any one of the sweaters and/or blazers.
