One of the most enduring and stylish items of women’s country wear in recent times, the tweed wrap is the go-to cover up for those who want to look elegant and sophisticated when the weather takes a turn from balmy to cool as the seasons change. Luxury British brand Leger and Oaks bring something a little different to the mix, thanks to an innate knowledge of how to work with heavy fabrics such as tweed to ensure the final product flatters the figure, rather than swamping it.
The Cheltenham Wrap by Leger and Oaks combines beautiful carefully-selected British tweeds and wools trimmed with sumptuous fur (£165.00) or faux fur (£145.00) depending on your preference, for a luxurious country coverup. The wraps are all handmade in England and finished with fun matching linings and gilt or silver buttons, depending on the colour combination chosen.
The Cheltenham Wrap from Leger and Oaks is available in the following colour options:
- Tan-check herringbone tweed, with a soft rust and gold paisley lining and gilt buttons.
- Classic navy wool with a gold polka dot lining and gilt buttons.
- Camel herringbone tweed, with a soft rust and gold paisley lining and gilt buttons.
- Navy and tan check herringbone tweed with a polka dot lining and silver buttons
Based in the heart of the Cotswolds, Leger and Oaks was founded with the aim of creating beautiful tweed and wool capes, jackets and wraps for women who want to give their own contemporary twist to the classic countryside looks of the moment. Founder Claudia uses skills gained in her career as an interior designer to tailor and cut the range of capes and wraps to give a beautiful feminine line, and the Cheltenham Wrap demonstrates this perfectly.
As the name of the brand and their products would suggest, Claudia and the rest of the team at Leger and Oaks have a long-standing passion for horses and horse racing, so it’s no surprise that they design and craft elegant garments with a day at the races or a smart local point-to-point in mind. The Cheltenham Wrap is also the ideal extra layer at an Autumn wedding, and turns a simple shirt, jeans and boots outfit into a smart ensemble wherever you are going.
