The end of the shooting season is a sad day for many people who love taking to the field. But it doesn’t mean you have to pack away your favourite tweed for the year. Some of the most exciting days in the country girl’s calendar are coming up. If you pick carefully, there’s no reason why you can’t rock the very same tweed pieces you’ve worn during the driven game season when you’re out and about this spring.
What are the key dates in your diary over the next few months? I’m really looking forward to the Duke of Beaufort’s point-to-point at my local track in Didmarton in March, and later that month the iconic Cheltenham festival returns. In between there are multitude of outings and meetings that require a smart yet country look. Naturally tweed is what we turn too.
A piece for all occasions
If you’re planning your outfit for a day at the races or a smart lunch with friends, perhaps you’re looking for something that’s a little bit different from the norm. Introducing Emma Brown Tweed, purveyors of glorious, British country clothing. Interested in a twist on the staple piece of the country girl uniform, the neat but sometimes daring tweed miniskirt? Their Lace Skirts are hand-made in England. They combine 100% wool heritage tweeds with beautiful lace in a truly eye-catching and elegant way. The lace also gives a bright pop of colour that you can match up with accessories and really pull your outfit together!
Feminine and flattering
The Emma Brown Tweed Poaching Coats are simply sublime, featuring a nipped in waistline and elegant ‘fishtail’ style back. I adore mine – I shoot in it and it’s fabulous, with vented back panels for freedom of movement to swing the gun. But it’s also the most versatile item of clothing I own. I also wear it for work meetings, to the races, when heading to the pub to meet friends. Or when I’m heading up to London for work or play. You really can’t ask for more than that! That’s the beauty of Emma Brown Tweed pieces, they are designed to be totally practical. But they look so very good too.
The latest addition to the Emma Brown Tweed collection is their range of stunning capes. So very cleverly designed so that they can be worn in two ways. And featuring brilliant game bird fabric linings and contrasting piping. Capes are a brilliant choice for spring dressing where it can be chilly one moment and then bathed in warm sunshine the next. Like the rest of their designs, the Emma Brown Tweed take on the cape is an elegant and ladylike piece of clothing. One that will become a staple in your wardrobe for many years to come. Now, roll on spring and the chance to get outside and enjoy some spring sunshine!
