Not even a nationwide lockdown can stop the wonder that is Holly Willoughby’s This Morning wardrobe. As ever the presenter is still pulling the style hits out of the bag every morning, with one dress in particular catching everyone’s eye this week.
Holly donned a gorgeous gingham midi dress from Oasis for Wednesday’s show and it ticks all the right style boxes for this season. Midi? Check. Gingham? Check. Cute puff sleeves? Check. With a classic black and white colourway, slim pencil silhouette and high neckline, the dress has a vintage feel to it, but details such as the surprising yet lovely low-cut V on the back elevate it to a totally modern style.
This would make the perfect summer frock for all shapes and sizes; Holly kept things classic by pairing hers with plain black heeled courts and her signature wavy do, but it would look equally pretty with chunky flats and some layered gold chains. We can also imagine wearing it with fresh-out-the-box white trainers or keeping with the vintage aesthetic with a pair of on-trend mules. Finish off the vintage vibe with a swipe of red lipstick or keep things neutral à la Holly with a fresh-faced smoky eye and nude lip.
Sadly, that notorious ‘Holly effect’ (combined with the fact the dress appeared in the John Lewis 20 per cent off sale), meant fans went flouncing to the virtual rails and snapped the dress up in every size, meaning it’s now sold out. But that’s no bad news – gingham is one of the biggest trends for this spring summer so there are plenty of other options out there that will help you to perfectly emulate Holly’s amazing style.
Here’s a few of our favourites.
