When jersey first entered the fashion scene, it was either silk or wool, both only available in the most expensive designs. Understand this divine knitted fabric really did originally come from Jersey in the Channel Islands.
Now, of course, this lightweight yarn, with its stretch and drape is made in all sorts of clever fibre mixes. Currently it is very much part of the fashion scene and a quick look at anyone’s clothes collection reveals so many items in ubiquitous jersey.
Dresses with subtle draping are extremely flattering and the fabric has a lovely 'handle'. We have also used this clever fabric in the back of our perfect shirt to give the Winser London perfect shirt jersey back a fabulous fit and comfort and all at £95
This new long sleeveless maxi dress is perfect for summer days and nights. It is so special it can hardly be classed as a T-shirt dress. The smooth cool-feel fabric makes this dress a little winner. Great thrown over a bathing suit for lunch, yet totally smart enough for dinner teamed with a large necklace. Worn with a low slung brown leather belt with a turquoise buckle and hey it’soff to sight-see in Santa Fe.
Sky high heels are suddenly a bit vieux chapeau and flats work best with the longer dress, sandals of course, but also a battered tennis shoe style. For the shorter draped and shift jersey dresses, sandals with a little heel still looks right.
