The weather may be miserable, but I certainly wasn’t today when parading my new shirt-dress round town. A last-minute January sale buy, I grabbed it from Oasis for half price (originally £50!) after being persuaded by my boyfriend that it would be a good investment. That it is proving to be – the suede material is just the right temperature for those awkward in-betweeny days and the sleek style means that as an outfit it can be dressed up or down. I also love the retro vibe it gives off.
After denying that fishnets are a trend, I have finally given in and bought a pair. I couldn’t understand the fuss for a long time, but they’re actually so so comfy and an easy way to freshen up an old look. I’m obsessed with wearing them under jeans or culottes with trainers or loafers to add bit of edge. I think they make this shirt-dress seem more sophisticated and elegant than your average opaque tights (although it was a bit nippy!).
Thanks for reading.
