Great British heritage meets the spirit for adventure at Belstaff, the humble brand from the midlands that went on to capture everyone from film stars to explorers. Inventor of the first water resistant wax cotton jacket, Belstaff still celebrates its signature design, but has taken its heritage style to everything from boots and bags to winter woollies.

Belstaff boys

From Steve McQueen in The Great Escape to Christian Bale as Batman, Belstaff has channelled the spirit of the rugged but refined adventurer. Its traditional waxed jacket still thrives, perfect for that classic casual feel with distressed jeans and worker boots, or with preppy men's chinos and knitwear. Continue the theme with Belstaff's footwear. Hard wearing biker boots will add a rebellious feel, while lace-up boots echo the days of punk rebellion. Chelsea boots will give you a modern dapper feel, but trainers are where it's at for this season, and Belstaff's designs are perfect for an urban streetwear vibe with tailored joggers and a hoodie.

Belstaff womenswear

Amelia Earhart once wore the iconic Belstaff wax jacket, and ever since, the brand has continued to bring its signature sass to womenswear. Give your jacket a festival fashion update and wear it with shorts and a boho blouse, or go winter preppy in blue jeans and a cashmere jumper. Belstaff's boots will give your style some edge, offset a feminine summer dress with chunky Belstaff biker boots, or look to the grungy 90s with a pair of lace-up boots, black tights and an oversized t-shirt dress. Keep it minimal in Chelsea boots and a trench coat, and don't forget some Belstaff knitwear to take the look through to winter.
