One of our loyal readers had asked to guest blog for TET, and since it's always good to get a fresh perspective from another fashion lover, I thought why not?  Without further ado, here's Catherine who hailed across the globe from England!  Catherine is a freelance advertising agent by trade, and all around fashion enthusiast by heart.

Spring is here at last and for most of England that means rain, sleet and the occasional snowstorm. So, while you might not be ready to ditch your winter garments just yet, there’s no reason why you can’t check out some of the latest jackets, coats and knits to hit the shelves.  Here’s a look at some of my favourites.

The quilted look
Casual jackets that don’t sacrifice on style, comfort and warmth aren’t always easy to come by. One of the more stylish choices that manage to tick off all the boxes is the quilted duffle coats.  Three quarter length or short styles, these comfortable and cosy jackets are perfect for channelling a sophisticated English heritage look.

Trench fever
Nothing says stylish and sophisticated quite like a trench coat. Perfect in shades like nude, black or ivory, the trench coat looks great paired with skinny leg jeans and ankle boots.  Check out this range of trench coats which include elegant detailing, such as intricate lace patterns and contrasting fabrics and textures. Whatever style you opt for, be sure to wear a belt at the waist to accentuate your great curves.

Worried about buying a jacket that might go out of fashion? Well you can rest easy when you buy leather, a timeless and sexy look that seems to never fall out of trend.  It’s always worth paying that little bit more for real leather or a better quality faux leather imitation to avoid that plastic look some jackets have. Opt for a jacket with detailing in the right place, like zip cuffs, press studs or even a fur trim collar and pair your leather jacket with a skater dress, tights, heels and a feminine scarf.

Blazers are the perfect mix of fashion and tailored elegance. Classical black blazers are the perfect choice for any work wardrobe, adding a finishing touch to a skirt and blouse. The great selection of coloured blazers in pastel pinks, greys and burgundy are perfect when teamed with skinny jeans and heels.  

I own the Love Label trenchcoat (bargain price!) and G-Star Raw blazer as I adore them!  I hope you like my selection?
