HV Polo AW18 Rider Collection

We explore the AW18 collection by HV Polo

With winter approaching, will you saddle up or bed down? Either way, HV Polo has you covered.

HV Polo have long been one of our favourite premium brands on the market. Their attention to detail is phenomenal and we love their ability to blend on-trend styles and seasonal colours with the latest in technical, weatherproof materials. You might have the winter blues, but with HV Polo, your wardrobe certainly won’t have!

Fittingly, there is an autumnal feel to their latest collection, with a colour palette that is inspired by nature. Conker browns meet mossy greens, and gentle greys take centre stage for their outerwear, all of which combine beautifully with dazzling base layers of ruby pink and dark turquoise.

We love this HV Polo Amanda Jacket in Navy

At TrendyEquine, we all agree that the pièce de résistance of the collection is their stable of coats and jackets. If you’re anything like me and dread heading to the yard for morning feeds during the cold, brutal English winters, you’ll understand my excitement at the inclusion of long jackets! Numb bums, be gone…and it’s all thanks to our new best friends, Becky and Amanda.

Becky is a long jacket in the style of a traditional quilted parka, designed to keep your super warm while still looking stylish, whereas Amanda has a sportier appearance with zippers on the rear, meaning that it can be worn in the saddle too. Anyone who miraculously manages to maintain a social life while battling gale force winds and stable-bound horses will be pleased to know that these jackets look as flattering with boyfriend or skinny jeans as they do with breeches!  Sound like you? PLEASE share your #stablehacks in the comments below, we’d love to know how you do it!

For those that seem to have an inbuilt heater, the HV Polo Cindy bodywarmer offers a sleeveless, yet equally warm alternative to the jackets. Cindy also has a chic faux fur detachable collar and hidden hood, making her an extremely desirable, versatile and necessary wardrobe staple!

How nice is this HV Polo Cindy Bodywarmer

The great thing about a bodywarmer is that it lets you get really creative with your whole look, allowing you to add colour and show off otherwise hidden detailing on your base layers. And with the evolution of technical fabrics, it’s no wonder that base layers are a hot topic right now. They are more versatile than ever; you’re as likely to see them at the gym as you are at the yard, due to their superior warming, cooling and moisture-wicking properties. I’ve even seen them being worn at the airport! Don’t miss out! With built in ventilation, reflective details and four-way stretch fabric, Tory, Tessie and Lizzy are sure to be the talk of the tack room this season!

For those dedicated riders who will still be saddling up throughout the AW season, your outfit wouldn’t be complete without the perfect breeches. Laura has had a mini-makeover for winter and now sports an athleisure feel, but you’ll be glad to know that the clever people at HV Polo have retained the super stretchy and water repellent fabric which we at Trendy HQ love about this breech, meaning you’ll stay dry and comfortable, whatever the weather! With Laura, the devil really is in the detail and you’ll find a specially formulated full silicone seat to help you maintain grip when wet and importantly, help you to stay in the saddle even when the scariest of leaves blows across your path! Fleece lined for extra warmth with trendy logo side panels and a luxurious metal logo plate, these breeches are everything you need and more! We’re particularly smitten with them in Indigo and we’re yet to find an outfit that they don’t go with!

The ultimate winter breech - The HV Polo Laura breech

Oh, and if you’re starting to get cold feet about this whole owning-horses-in-winter-business, then HV has got that covered too. Yes, they do socks too. Yes, they are amazing. Yes, we wear them ALL the time! Oh, and they’d make great stocking fillers!

So there you have it; a beautifully crafted collection of equestrian fashion featuring all of the latest trends. The season never looked – or felt – so good! And handily for you, all of these products and more are available on our site, www.trendyequine.com
