Well hello there fellow sassenach! Are you as deeply invested in Outlander right now as I am? Are you desperately trying to bring a bit of it’s Highland magic to your life? I find us Outlander fans are naturally drawn to emulating the style of Claire because she exudes a courageous, adventurous, and at times stubborn persona. It what allows her to navigate the damp and frigid Scottish Highlands, and keep up with her beau Jamie. When fall or winter rolls around do you ever gaze upon Clare’s outfits with envy? Sometimes I stare at the beauty and style of Claire Randall Fraser the way Laoghaire longingly stares at Jamie.
Don’t Let Winter Hold You Back
Remember when you were a young 20 something year old, skipping off to the bar in the middle of winter with nothing but a cute dress? Kiss those days goodbye, and say hello to cozy, comfort, and style all wrapped over you like a warm hug. When the seasons change in places like Toronto or Ottawa, Canada with cold climates it’s time to reach for the wool, plaid, mittens, and scarves. But somehow no one pulls off the warm and cozy look quite like Claire from Outlander. She even has the burly and handsome Highlander Jamie sporting a sexy wool kilt next to her. Imagine yourself apple picking or pumpkin carving in a beautiful Claire poncho. You might just crash your instagram feed with this insta worthy outfit and outing.
Trick or Treat?
Ladies, channeling your inner Clare doesn’t just have to just be Halloween fun. Your wardrobe will be practical, warm, cozy, and stylish. Where Oh Where, To Find The Sassenach Look? Here are some of my favourite ways for you to open your closet, and fall into the world of Outlander!
WAYS TO STYLE LIKE CLARE?
Try styling the Copious Clare poncho with the long fingerless knit gloves for a warm cute look this fall. You can constantly find Clare wearing gloves like these throughout the televsion show. She pairs her outfits in the chilly highlands of Scotland with knit gloves like this.
In modern day (since we don't live in the 1700s) these knit gloves are perfect for typing on your phone, grabbing groceries or starting your car while still keeping your hands and arms warm. PLUS they go great with our Copious Fashions poncho hoodie inspired by Clare from the outlander television show.
How cute is this hoodie poncho inspired by Clare from Outlander. We can often find Clare sporting this look throughout Scotland and the other areas Jamie and her travel to. This hood is stylish AND warm. This poncho hoodie being made with 30% wool keeps you warm and toasty!
The Clare poncho is hand sewn and designed in Toronto and Ottawa in Canada by Copious Fashions. Carissa is the head designer who created this majestic poncho and she's a total fan of Outlander!
These gaelic earrings are stunning. Can't you picture Clare wearing these earrings while scheming in front of the fire place with Jamie or wearing her sultry red dress while in France to the Kings court? They'd look great with a pair of jeans or mustard corduroy pants for the season in modern day times.
CLARE DRAGONFLY BROOCH
This dragonfly brooch is the perfect accessory to add to your fall sweater or jacket. It would even look super cute pinned to Copious Fashion's Clare poncho. Named after the 2nd book, dragon fly in amber by Diana Gabaldon, we love this Scottish inspired brooch to spruce up your autumn wardrobe while channelling your inner Scottish lass.
