There’s a look that can only be described as ‘English Eccentric’. It’s an amalgam of traditional elements, more modern additions and the downright quirky. It’s hard to put together well. In fact it’s a look that really only evolves over several generations of adding and subtracting. But it you did fancy a go, you’d have to let go of all rules. Start with traditional features. Layer patterns and textures. Add embellishments such as fringing and tassels. And finally, include some ultra contemporary pieces, a few humorous accessories, a touch of tartan, and finally just a hint of leopard print. Job done. And good luck. Don’t ask me for advice, this is way out of my comfort zone.
