Heritage style

I read, a little while ago, on Vanity Fair, this winter the “Heritage look” is back.

Immense joy! I have always loved it and always will. Think classic fabric like tweed, tartan, corduroy; shetland wool (itchy I know, but gorgeous), argyle patters, WOW!! I am not sure why I adore all this, perhaps fond of old times?

Anyhow, now, I am a “little older”, I think perhaps all this might make me look I come from that period in history and not in a positive way!! But, there is a way, actually, to approach it without looking too ancient:

the secret is to mix those beautiful items together with clashing patters and/or colours. I am going to give you a couple of examples,  I don’t actually like the single items in them necessarily , but they show well enough what I mean:

Does this explain better? (The pics are from Vanity Fair) Rather than wearing an argyle pattern top over something plain, worn over another pattern makes it look up to date. If you throw in a strange colour as well, than you have the modern Heritage look!
