Spring is in the air – and so is our brand-new country and equestrian clothing collection!
Is it the new life that appears at this time of year? Cute lambs frolicking in the fields, vivid green buds on the trees and bulbs poking their way through the soil? Is it bright yellow daffodils, pastel Easter eggs, Bank Holidays and finally being able to sit outside cafes and pubs again after a long, cold and dark winter? Maybe it’s the start of the British Eventing season, afternoons watching point-to-points in the sunshine and FINALLY being able to ride in the evenings and muck out without the stable light on.
Whatever comes to mind, the important thing is that spring is nearly here! That means soon we can enjoy warmer weather, dog walks without everything getting covered in mud and the chance to discard thermal trousers, thick socks, hats, scarves and gloves until colder weather arrives next winter. When it comes to spring fashion, the new season is the perfect opportunity to wear gorgeous colours and lighter shades that aren’t always practical in the winter.
Of course, spring weather can be a little bit unpredictable here in the UK, so the perfect new season outfit needs to be carefully planned too! Crisp mornings can give way to gorgeous spring sunshine. A foggy morning might be followed by a spell of warm sunshine which then gives way to a spring downpour. If you’re out riding, competing, dog walking or enjoying a sociable weekend, you need the right clothes to stay comfortable no matter what the weather does. That means waterproof jackets, breathable base layers, lightweight gilets and cosy sweaters for chilly evenings.
Here at Toggi we recently unveiled our spring/summer 23 collection and it’s designed to be perfect for spring dressing. The range of different garments in the collection makes it easy to stay comfortable whatever the weather is doing – and you’ll love the new colours too! Here are our five top picks from the women’s collection, but there are new items for men and children too, so make sure you have a good look around the website when you’re finished reading…
April showers bring forth May flowers… This famous saying is right on the mark when it comes to British spring weather, and that means a water repellent jacket is essential! Our new Mission Jacket has waterproof zips, fabric and taped seams to ensure you stay perfectly dry when the heavens open. A drawcord at the waist means you can wear it loose or cinch it in, and the metallic trims and prints complete the look. Available in black or silver.
The Sculptor Sleek Riding Tights
Our Sculptor Sleek Riding Tights are crafted from a technical supportive fabric that allows you to move with freedom in the saddle, and for spring there are two gorgeous new colours to choose from – dusky rose pink or pretty pistachio! These riding tights are equipped with strategically placed silicone knee patches, a phone pocket and flattering high waist, with accompanying branded drawcord.
The perfect layer for those chilly mornings, our brand new Beyond Padded Gilet has a lightweight ethical 80/20 down and stretch panels at the sides so you can move freely whatever you’re doing. We’ve added a water repellent coating to keep you dry. The gorgeous heat-sealed geometric design is sure to turn heads and the beautiful silver grey is perfect for spring.
The Ripple Performance Base Layer
Our new Ripple Performance Layer is a stylish long- sleeved top in a sleek stretch fabric that will be the perfect spring base layer paired with a gilet or sweater on cooler days, or a waterproof jacket when the spring showers arrive. Featuring a subtle, tonal wave print and a practical zip neck, this is available in metallic silver and nickel for a touch of luxe appeal this spring!
Spring can still give us chilly evenings, and that means you need a cosy sweater to wear to the pub or pull on when you’re heading back from competitions in the lorry. Our new Breathe Sweatshirt is crafted from a snug cotton blend fabric that has been silicone washed to make it extra soft and the brushed inner makes it super cosy. Plus, this divine pink is perfect for spring outfits and the pastel shades are on trend in 2023.
