Websites can be intimidating, especially at the start of a new season. A host of all new, delicious offerings. It’s hard to choose. I have been lucky to have had a look at the collection in the showroom and have had a chance to touch and feel and see some of the clothes modelled. Of course everything is gorgeous “natch”! But I do have some favourites that I have been recommending and things that I would love myself. So I want to put before you a few suggestions to help you choose.
Draped Jersey Wrap Waist Dress - In black or midnight, this dress has all the chic elements we need from a dress. At a glance one can see it will do duty in any formal or informal situation. I think it looks fantastic on a figure that is more curvaceous than the model, so that’s a plus. In fact, I think it is the sexiest dress around that has sleeves.
Draped Jersey 2 Way Top - Totally brilliant. A jersey piece with a cowl neck that can been worn low in the front for those wilth a belle poitrine. For those maybe with a beautifully tanned back worn with the drape at the back, genius. The sleeves narrow at the wrist and can be pushed up to show bracelets. I like it worn as a long top for any day or night of the week teamed with narrow pants. Here it’s shown tucked into a simple skirt. It is in either black or midnight and from size 8-16. I have put the size in here as not everything goes up to size 16.
Leather and Jersey Pencil Skirt - This is wonderful, so young and sexy without being tarty. It has a real girl on a motorcycle feel, remember the movie? But it’s chic and knee length and the jersey and leather are soft but substantial. This is trend for grown-ups. And is as suitable for a jazz club or a parents evening. It’s a winner for those smart casual dinners when the kids will be in jeans and we want to wear something with pazazz. Good with long black knee length boots or kitten heels for that Bardot look.
Batwing Cardigan - This is such a winner too. This is chic but modern and boho too. Very fine silk, wool, cashmere blend so it’s smart in a cuddly way. Flattering and slimming. Again, I think it will work in the evening and in the day, depending on your styling with accessories. I love this picture with all Winser pearls.
Next month I will be looking at the evening section and making some suggestions
