A VINTAGE YEAR

With The Jubilee behind us and the Olympics almost here, we are still in celebratory mode and country seems to be honoring everything that’s great about Britain. But not just current events or anniversaries, we are also getting nostalgic for a Britain from years gone by. Bunting sales have never been higher, we are a nation obsessed with cup cakes and home baking, and vintage clothes are hugely sort after, as is vintage crockery. Even plastic toys aren’t good enough anymore, toys based on old wooden designs are must have items and ‘staycationing’ is the new way to holiday. Every evening there are TV programmes about Britain, and its heritage & traditions filling the schedules.

So with that in mind, we would like to bring you some British vintage inspired pieces from our Pepperberry collection. Take a look at Shop By Trend, and then Time For Tea, you’ll find ditsy prints, polka dots and a dash of red white and blue.

Two gorgeous cardis that just sum up that vintage look are the Pointelle Cardigan in navy and the Printed Cardigan in flower print.

The Frill Font Dress

The Frill Font Dress


The Pointelle Cardigan is a versatile and light cover-up for the summer, and navy is a classic colour, that will look great with a white fitted Tee, but also look fabulous over a coloured summer dress. This cardi, is really flattering, due to the large ribbed waist area, it will hug your curves in all the right places.

The Printed Cardigan is a pretty cardigan that will really liven up plain neutrals. We have had some great reviews about this item, because of the flattering fit, great quality, pretty buttons and lovely floral print. Try it with Pepperberry’s stylish Linen Skirt in Sand, or for a cute summer look, wear with Shimmer Shorts in Gold.

The Frill Front Dress, in Green, is a really pretty vintage style tea dress, it is made from a gorgeous silk cotton blend fabric. It has cute puff sleeves, a ruffle as a centre detail, and a matching waist tie. It is extra flattering over the tummy area and the hips, perfect for a shaped figure. The Frill Front Dress would be a great summer buy, feminine, comfortable and smart, it could be worn for a variety of events and occasions. Team it with some indigo coloured wedges and a denim jacket for a dressed down vintage look, or accessorise it with the Sparkle Wrist Strap Clutch Bag and silver sling back kitten heels, a floral fascinator and a cropped fitted jacket and you have the perfect outfit for a summer wedding.

WHAT TO WEAR?

Oh how we love the weekend, two full days away from work (apologies, if you are one of the many that have to work this weekend, but this is relevant to you too, so keep reading). If you are planning a shopping trip, you may come home a bit disappointed, with cries of “It’s just so summery, I couldn’t find anything…”

It’s not just you so don’t worry. It’s that tricky time of the year between winter and spring. Americans call it ‘Transition’, we just call it ‘Difficult’. We never know quite what to pick from our wardrobes or buy from the shops. Even though the crocuses are popping up and we may have seen the last of the arctic weather, there is still a nip in the air and we need to dress accordingly.

Pepperberry, our clothing brand, are on hand to bring you our essential guide to dressing for ‘right now’. We have selected some of the best pieces from our current collection that will look great whether you are working all weekend or whether you are out and about.

Leather Jacket

Leather Jacket


Biker Jackets are a classic, a great investment and will never date. Pepperberry’s Leather Jacket is a jacket that you will never want to part with and it is also perfect for this time of year. This one has ribbed panels at the sides, so it will stretch and fit perfectly over your boobs. The two rows of statement buttons give it a military feel. This jacket will look great with skinny jeans, a bodycon dress, or pencil skirt.

The Printed Cardigan is the perfect spring buy, available in a floral print, it has an extra wide ribbing which will create a lovely nipped in waist. The Printed Cardigan looks great buttoned up with indigo bootcut jeans or with skinny jeans. Try it with our Coloured Skinny Jeans in camel or navy or with the Drape Capped Sleeve Dress, as shown.

The Blue Stripe Shirt is a classic tailored shirt, with a pin tuck detail running down the front. Pastels are big news this spring and the pale blue pinstripe follows this trend. This shirt looks great with skinny jeans and knee high boots, add a blazer and a scarf and you have a great spring look.

Big Button Coatigan

Big Button Coatigan


The Big Button Coatigan is a great buy at this time of year, the current weather is not cold enough for a big thick coat, so the Coatigan is a perfect solution. It is available in navy, it has super flattering ribbed detailing down the sides and around the waist, ceramic buttons and it is fully lined in a contrast colour. A great cover up for spring.
