With a change of season comes a shift in wardrobe. Tearfully packing away our T-shirts and summer riding tights as we pull out the winter woollies and waterproofs, but wait… could we still wear any of our summer wardrobe into autumn? In this equestrian clothing blog, our stylish equestrian PR team shares expert tips for transiting your summer equestrian clothing into autumn with these tips and tricks.
Lightweight layers are your best friend for casual riders and competitive riders, especially in the autumn months, when it can go from warm to chill in a matter of hours. The good news is that you can enjoy your summer horse riding gear all year round by layering it with warmer pieces. Team your long sleeve polo necks and tops with your short sleeve polo shirts and T-shirts.
Add a warm quilted gilet underneath your jacket so you can peel off the layers, or add it back on for extra warmth with ease! Summer vest tops can also work well under this season’s sheer and lace story for those mild autumnal days.
Short On Time
Summer is such a brief account, but don’t let the cold weather stop you from wearing your short sleeve competition shirts. Team with a white thermal long sleeve high polo neck to keep you toasty during winter. Choose moisture-wicking riding tops, including base layers in a technical fabric that wick away moisture to keep you warm and comfortable while competing over the winter months.
Whenever you purchase everyday riding, choose high-quality riding wear that will last you more than one season of fun. Horse riding clothing which is luxury riding wear, might be a bigger investment, but it will mean you will get to enjoy it for many more seasons to come. The perfect horse-riding outfit is one that you get to enjoy most of the year!
Summer Riding Tights That Transition To Autumn
Your comfortable riding leggings might be styled in a lighter-weight fabric, but there is no reason why you can’t add a pair of tights or thermals underneath to see you through the autumn. Horse riding leggings with deep phone pockets on the thighs make a great choice for riding during winter, offering easy access to your phone and treats rather than struggling and searching in coat and jacket pockets. Equestrian clothing should perform as good as it looks, so choose brands like Equetech for lasting function with fashion.
Chic riding breeches in a lightweight summer fabric can easily be upgraded to winter weight by adding a pair of riding thermal leggings made from breathable fabric underneath.
Tropic Like It’s Hot
Refrain from banishing this summer’s colour and tropical prints to the back of your wardrobe – you can still wear them joyfully. A pop of bright colour is exactly what you need during those long, dull riding days ahead! Dare to divert from black this season by seeing how you can make your summer collection of horse riding basics work for autumn.
Horse riders generally live in a uniform of black or navy during the winter months, and for good reason (it’s dirty and muddy!), but adding a little colour through your riding accessories such as a cheery pair of socks, practical gloves, or belt with some sparkle can really brighten up your day.
