Country Attire celebrates 10 years of Britishness

With the British festival season drawing to a close, our thoughts turn towards the changing weather conditions and that perfect transitional piece to take us through to the crisp autumnal months. At the heart of any quintessentially British look, is a beautiful, handcrafted heritage piece and this autumn/winter, Country Attire have got you covered.

Country Attire is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this year and to mark this milestone they invited a selection of bloggers to a typically British afternoon tea at Proper Tea Rooms. The event was to showcase a number of pieces from their AW16 collection focusing on pieces for the colder seasons.

The event allowed guests to preview and try on the jackets, scarves, bags and boots alongside a number of competitions, sweet treats and glasses of prosecco. All guests were presented with a mystery golden envelope upon arrival which contained a prize or voucher to spend at Country Attire.  The main prize up for grabs from the mystery envelopes was a pair of Sorel Boots. There were a number of social media competitions throughout the evening. By sharing your favourite pieces from the collection, with the hashtag #MyCountryAttire, lucky guests could win a Country Attire wax jacket or a Bellroy leather wallet.

My favourite pieces from the County Attire AW16 collection included the Joules waterproof hooded jacket,  the Derby backpack by Vivienne Westwood and the iconic Barbour Beadnell wax jacket. For men, the Barbour Heritage Bedale jacket proved popular in sage however the yellow one available on the Country Attire website has a contemporary twist and is already on my boyfriend's Christmas list.

The Country Attire 10 year anniversary blogger event allowed guests to preview capsule pieces from the collection, if you head over to the New Arrivals section on the Country Attire website then you will be able to have a browse through these and even more products and brands available for AW16. If you do see anything you like you can use the code BIRTHDAY10 to get 10% off all orders. Don't forget to share any snaps of your purchases with the hashtag #MyCountryAttire to be in with a chance of winning a £100 gift voucher.
