A typically quintessential English tradition, with visions of royalty dressed in silk attire and dripping in sparkling diamonds, it’s no wonder that attending high tea provokes sheer panic in the hearts of many.
However, owing to many modern day takes on classic afternoon tea, many places do not enforce a strict dress code in keeping with such a high class affair. From melt-in-your-mouth buttery scones, to tantalisingly sweet cakes and delectable treats, we think afternoon tea is something everyone should try.
Thankfully our beautiful Charlotte London jackets and blazers are perfect for such a delightful occasion. With all of our pieces available to buy from our online shop, we want to share with you some contemporary pieces that we think would be perfect to reflect the relaxed and refined atmosphere of what is a beautiful dining experience.
