Dubarry Autumn/Winter Essentials
The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are dropping so it’s time to wrap up in style. Just because you have to dress for warmth it doesn’t mean you can’t still look great. Dubarry have some fantastic outerwear options that will help you keep your classic country style this winter as well as fighting off the cold.
Dubarry Women’s Essentials
A Smart Blazer:
Every women needs a smart blazer in their wardrobe. They are the perfect extra layer for so many occasions. They look sophisticated as part of a work outfit and can offer extra warmth in the office when paired with a stylish blouse. Hitting the shops or heading out for a meal or drinks? A blazer is the ultimate jacket as you can dress it up or dress it down. Combine with a pair of jeans for a casual outfit or layer over your favourite dress or skirt and top combo for a night out.
A Cosy Coat:
For when temperatures really drop you’re going to need a high quality winter coat. A good coat is a must! Quilted designs can be good for trapping warm air around the body and they also look smart. A waxed jacket has a classic country feel to it and is sure to keep out the elements. They’re perfect for outdoor adventures or your daily dog walk. You’ll notice that faux fur trims are very popular but can get soggy in the rain so why not opt for a coat with an optional removable trim (like the one pictured below). Length is also important, do you want short and fitted or do you want to opt for a long design for added protection from the elements.
A Cool Cape:
Do you see yourself as a fashionista. If you like to look completely a la mode then you need a cape in your life. They look so glamorous but are also super comfy and a great way to add warmth to your country outfit. Pair with some smart trousers and your favourite heels for heading to an event. For a more casual outfit, pair with some jeans and your favourite country boots for the ultimate comfort outfit.
Dubarry Men’s Essentials
A Cosy Jumper:
The ultimate winter essential is a nice cosy jumper that you can use for any occasion. Pop over the top of a t-shirt or a shirt for extra warmth and if needs be layer your coat on top. You want the sweater to be made from good quality materials so that it is comfortable against the skin, warm and also durable. Dubarry often opt for Lambswool as a key material in their jumpers for a classic look and feel.
A Smart/Casual Shirt:
Everyone dreads the dress code ‘smart/casual’ but with the right shirt you never have to fret again. A classic checked shirt can be dressed up with smart trousers and smart shoes. Yet if you pair it with some jeans and trainers you have a very casual outfit. A checked design also gives a great country feel and looks fantastic paired with a wax jacket and a flat cap for heading out on adventures.
A Cosy Coat:
As mentioned in the women’s section above, everyone needs a really good coat over the colder months. The question is do you prefer a waxed style or a quilted style. A waxed jacket is perfect for keeping the wind and rain off while a quilted option is great at holding warm air around your core. If you want even more warmth, why not a PrimaLoft fill for extra insulation (this is a feature of our top pick below).
