FIELD & FOREST
As we’re unable to spectate at point-to-points this season we’re going to revive the smart casual style for our country walks through field and forest!
A contemporary take on spring knitwear, the Julia sleeveless jumper is designed with layering in mind. Crafted from a soft merino wool blend in navy blue rib, it has a round neck, tabard-style open sides fastened with ties, a classic fit and a longer length which falls to just below the bottom. Wear it over your favourite shirt and trousers when you need a little extra warmth.
Celebrate the first flowers of the year with this ditsy print blouse in a charming floral print. The collarless shape and seam detail add casual comfort and a touch of femininity, while the versatile style can be dressed up or down for different occasions.
For an alternative to jeans these Querina Chinos from Regatta are made of soft and stretchy Coolweave fabric with a slim-leg and classic five pocket design. With a garment wash finish for a softer feel and available in Regular and Long leg lengths.
TOWN & COUNTRY
With restrictions beginning to unlock, choose versatile pieces that can adapt for home working to a walk in the park; for staycations to a wander through the woods; maybe even from outdoor walks to outside drinks…. We live in hope!
Take the edge off cooler spring days with this short luxe padded coat. It’s filled with recycled wadding using waste that was heading to landfill and has all the element-beating features you’d want. Featuring side panels for a flattering fitted shape, a funnel neck to keep out cold winds and a pearlised fabric for brighter finish.
We love a well-cut everyday sweater that looks just as great out in the wilds as it does in the local pub. The Ivy Sweater is part of the Charli Essential collection and the deep V neck sweater features long sleeves and ribbed detailing. Long enough to tuck into trousers but short enough to wear loose for a more casual look; wear on its own or layer over fitted tops, shirts or dresses. The soft viscose blend is lightweight and warm, and the relaxed fit comes in one size, to fit UK sizes 8–14.
Enjoy comfort with a new style for spring. These long trousers in cotton blend denim feature a Carrot fit with relaxed leg – long enough to tuck into wellies on a wet walk but the cropped look is smart enough for bare ankles and trainers on sunnier days. Rich in details: creases on the front, pleats at the leg bottom, in-tone side stripes, front western-style pockets and patch pockets on the back.
FRESH AIR & FITNESS
If you equate outdoor time with a fitness workout activewear is perfectly acceptable for being worn in public – especially if it is fresh and stylish too!
This stretchy cropped bra top has removable padding in the cups so you can choose the fit and finish you like, while its mesh lining gives light support and comfort. Pair it with our matching leggings for a put-together look.
The matching stretchy leggings are versatile enough to take you from morning runs to relaxed evenings, with a high waistband and a sculpting shape to flatter your figure. The clever flat seams make them super comfortable and there’s a secure zipped pocket for keys and card.
This chic cowl neck style hoodie is unisex and made from 100% natural organic cotton. While the white colour and head cover is designed for practising Kundalini Yoga, morning sadhana or meditation, it is also a versatile look that will fit into your everyday casual lifestyle. Wear with a pair of jeans or pair up with yoga pants for a full loungwear look.
Available in Baby Blue or Grey this showerproof top will also help you show up on grey days with its reflective trims. Its cut gives you room to move without looking like a sack of potatoes. If you like your kit to match up, also available in the range are:
- Matching Reflective Active Tshirt, price was £12, now £9.
- Reflective Running Jacket, price was £16, now £12.
- Reflective Active Leggings, price was £18, now £13.50.
We’re anticipating brisk sea breezes, with glimpses of sunshine for our spring beach look!
Comfort and class can go hand in hand. Embody classic casual style in the Bobbie Top. Designed with an effortless Parisian aesthetic in mind, the top features a sleek boat neck, long sleeves, and understated horizontal stripe pattern.
Part of ASOS’s ‘responsible edit’, these mid-rise jeans are made in 100% cotton no-stretch denim, as part of the company’s membership of The Better Cotton Initiative; Better Cotton is sourced via a system of Mass Balance.
Featuring a straight fit, five pockets and gingham pattern, they evoke ‘90s style while looking fresh for spring fun.
Ideal for transitional weather, the Carla puffer jacket in white combines pared-back style with excellent insulation. Finished with press-stud detailing at the side-seam, this is the perfect layering piece. Team with fine knits, joggers and an overcoat for cool style on cool days.
Enjoy some fresh air outdoors in the garden, on a gentle picnic with a friend or a casual stroll in the park…feel comfortable while still retaining your fashion factor.
This knitted top and shorts set features a relaxed fit jumper with long sleeves, round neckline and ribbing around the neckline, cuffs and hem. Matching shorts have a drawstring tie and ribbing at the hems. Wear together for a springtime playsuit effect or team with other separates to suit the weather.
Keep your athleisure look on trend this season in these joggers exclusive to Limited Collection. Made from a comfortable jersey fabric, they feature a tie dye pattern with an elasticated waistband and cuffed hems. Complete the look with the matching sweatshirt or mix and match with your go-to tops and sweats.
Stand out from the hoodie crowd with this sportswear piece featuring patched on front pockets. Its on trend oversized style is shaped enough to be casual without too much volume. The mauve colour adds colour for spring without being too bright.
Karen can usually be found glued to her computer or at the stables. Having edited several national magazines she co-founded Eclipse Magazine in 2008 after realising that many of her friends were nervous about going racing due to lack of information – what to wear, how to bet etc.
She absolutely loves her job (how many people can say that?!) and is truly grateful to all supporters of and contributors to Eclipse Magazine.
If you are reading this she would like to say THANK YOU! (And please spread the word about Eclipse…!!)
