British styles are Hot on the Hanger this week. CBS19's Tara Wheeler heads to the store on the corner where they mix classic looks with a bit of modern flair.

"We're very traditional in our clothing but we have a lot of modern edgy twists to it," said Hayley Exley, the assistant manager at Jack Wills.

For men they suggest a dressy but casual look.

"What's great about this look is it is casual but still smart, we have the tweed blazer, it's the black ledge blazer, it is one of our best sellers this season and it comes in the dark charcoal with the navy and pink splash under the cuff to give it that bit of extra fun," said Exley. "We've styled it up with a smart shirt underneath."

The store also has dresses for ladies, including the latest Foxwood dress.

"What's so great about this dress is you can wear it up or down, so if you want to team it with leggings and boots for the winter you can," said Exley. "This one can also be dressed up, it looks fantastic with large piece jewelry and heals. It comes in our liberty paisley which is extremely popular."

Jack Wills' spring collection is coming out this week. The Ferndown Wax Jacket will come out on Thursday.

"This has already been extremely popular with the staff members who can't wait to get their hands on it and perfect for those light showers that will be coming up towards the back end of this month," said Exley. "We've teamed it with a floral summer dress which I think will be perfect."
