Here are our Black Heart "Five Faves for Fall":-
1. Cosy Casual
For those who relish the cosiness of the colder months, the idea of living in slouchy joggers and hoodies is very attractive! There is nothing nicer than throwing on a fleecy, soft and oversized hoodie for comfort. Hoodies are one of those things you definitely can never have too many of! Check out our over-sized, unisex full zip hoodies or if you prefer a traditional pull over hoodie, the soft Stretch Luxe Hoodies are cosy and fleecy and so comfortable!
2. Changing Weather
Autumn weather in the UK can be very changeable, especially as the days get shorter and the nights chillier. Prepare for all eventualities by starting with the right base layer. Getting a lovely, soft and close fitting top is the foundation for any winter wardrobe. Wear under sweaters as a warming layer or on their own for riding, our special breathable and quick drying fabric is excellent for sport. We have designed the base layers with thumb holes and a zip up neck to keep you toasty when it's really nippy!
3. Lovely Layers
A mid layer, known as the insulation layer, provides extra warmth when worn sandwiched between a base layer and outer coat or worn just on top of a base layer for milder days. Ideal for riding due to their lightweight and stretchy fabric yet smart enough to wear anywhere - they are easy to throw on and perfect to take you from the stable to school or work! Pop on a lightweight gilet over the mid layer for warmth whilst leaving arms flexible for mucking out or riding. For the winter months, our lightweight yet super warm quilted jacket is a sure winner. Featuring a two way zip, deep pockets and detachable hood these padded coats are perfect for equestrians.
4. Pumpkin Spice and Winter Drinks
The BHE Team office is next to a Starbucks so we are true pumpkin spice latte connoisseurs! If you want to have a go at making your own, check out this great recipe by Tesco for an easy home made pumpkin latte: https://realfood.tesco.com/recipes/pumpkin-latte.html. Alternatively, we are quite partial to a home made gingerbread coffee made with gingerbread syrup (from Amazon) topped with some yummy whipped cream!
5. Autumn Activities
The upside to autumn is the great range of events and things to do such as crispy walks, cosy candles, open fires, Halloween and bonfire night. When the horses are done, find a traditional pub with an open fire and enjoy some hearty food and cosy ambiance which is only found in the colder months! Pair your Black Heart Flex leggings with fleecy boots and oversized hoodie for a trip to the pumpkin patch or keeping your phone safe in the snug pocket whilst you are out for a ride or walk.
