Cotswold Life - - INSIDE -

When you’re shop­ping for an out­fit for a for­mal oc­ca­sion, whether it’s a day at the races at Chel­tenham Race­course, en­ter­tain­ing clients at a cor­po­rate event or at­tend­ing a Cotswold wed­ding in the re­gion’s idyl­lic coun­try­side, the most im­por­tant thing to con­sider is to en­sure you’re feel­ing com­fort­able in what you’re wear­ing. There’s noth­ing worse than be­ing too hot, too cold, not be­ing able to walk or move in what you’re wear­ing (we’ve all been there). It’s some­thing that can put a real damp­ener on the oc­ca­sion.

To cre­ate glam­our, style and con­fi­dence are the two key in­gre­di­ents you need in your out­fit. This is the ethos be­hind the Hol­land Cooper Cloth­ing brand with founder Jade Hol­land Cooper com­bin­ing her love for the city life with her coun­try­side girl cre­den­tials in the col­lec­tion. Each piece has been de­signed with the cus­tomer in mind: to be worn, loved and cher­ished for­ever, and to feel fab­u­lous, in what­ever you’re wear­ing.

When styling an out­fit, Hol­land Cooper Cloth­ing ad­vises start­ing with a hero piece that will cre­ate a sig­na­ture look for the oc­ca­sion, whether it’s a cape, a fit­ted blazer, tweed jacket or three-quar­ter length coat. Once you’ve set­tled on the style and fab­ric, it be­comes eas­ier to ac­ces­sorise your jacket – think a match­ing skirt, skinny leather trousers, a scarf or a hat.

Think­ing about choos­ing a tai­lored jacket, per­haps in tweed or wool, to com­plete your for­mal oc­ca­sion­wear? It’s all about the ac­ces­sories. Hol­land Cooper Cloth­ing sug­gest be­gin­ning at the bot­tom and work­ing your way to the top.

If you’re a lady who loves a skirt, per­haps opt for one of their match­ing Chelsea skirts avail­able in mini or midi style. Al­ter­na­tively, if you pre­fer a trouser, the leather look skin­nies are both flat­ter­ing and easy to wear and look even more glam­orous when paired with heels.

When it comes to blouses, you won’t go wrong with a zip shirt from Hol­land Cooper Cloth­ing. Avail­able in a range of beau­ti­ful colours and ver­sa­tile enough to work with skirts or trousers, the zip shirt pro­vides a flat­ter­ing sil­hou­ette on all body shapes and sizes with its com­fort­able, loose-fit­ting com­po­si­tion.

Hats de­liver a stylish touch to show­stop­ping oc­ca­sion­wear. Hol­land Cooper Cloth­ing of­fer trilby and panama-style hats in a range of dif­fer­ent of colours and they’re all hand­made in the UK. A day at the races is a per­fect ex­cuse for a hat!

Shop­ping on the high street can of­ten prove stress­ful, and we’ve all left cloth­ing stores empty-handed and dis­heart­ened af­ter tir­ing of chang­ing room queues, un­avail­able sizes, pushy sales as­sis­tants and over­crowded shop floors.

De­signed to cre­ate a unique plat­form in re­tail, pri­vate ap­point­ment ser­vices are hop­ing to al­le­vi­ate the stresses of shop­ping for a for­mal out­fit for a spe­cial oc­ca­sion.

Be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar across lux­ury and high street brands, many shop­pers are mov­ing away from the tra­di­tional shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence, opt­ing in­stead to en­joy a lux­ury re­tail ex­pe­ri­ence. Hol­land Cooper Cloth­ing is one such brand, invit­ing cus­tomers for a one-on-one shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence with one of their per­sonal stylists for guid­ance and ad­vice on their life­style col­lec­tion.

It doesn’t stop at shop­ping for for­mal oc­ca­sion­wear – the per­sonal shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence is also there for cus­tomers buy­ing a gift, cre­at­ing their sea­sonal wardrobe or in­dulging in an af­ter­noon of re­tail ther­apy with friends.

The col­lec­tion is all housed un­der one roof: re­cline and re­lax in the com­forts of the More­ton-in-marsh store, with com­pli­men­tary re­fresh­ments to hand, while your per­sonal shop­per helps you to choose the per­fect out­fit you’ve been search­ing for.

Think of the team at Hol­land Cooper Cloth­ing as your fash­ion con­fi­dants, help­ing you cre­ate a classy, stylish and time­less look.
