The art of layering doesn’t come naturally to us all, but Holly Willoughby and her stylist Angie Smith just gave us an expert lesson in pulling it off, and we’re taking plenty of notes.
The presenter wore Oasis’s cute checked pinafore on Wednesday’s edition of This Morning, partnered with a Massimo Dutti roll neck, black opaque tights and boots from Russell & Bromley. The resulting outfit was a chic, cosy take on seasonal dresses that we’re planning to copy, stat.
Luckily for us, it’s even more affordable to get the look than ever before, as Oasis is currently offering 30 per cent off everything on its website for the big Black Friday weekend. We’re talking jackets, shoes, bags and even homeware with a third off the RRP.
This means that the check shift dress as seen on screen now costs a reasonable £38.50, down from the original price tag of £55 – and a £16.50 saving is not to be sniffed at, especially this close to Christmas.
If you too want to follow in Holly’s style-savvy footsteps, pick a knit that plays on the colour palette of the pinafore – a contrasting neutral or even a soft white would look fab tucked underneath. Chunky boots complete the look, whether you tap into this season’s hiking-style trend or opt for a more classic platform sole and side zip like the star herself.
Pinafores not your thing? Well, this piece is not the only Black Friday bargain that Ms Willoughby has drawn our attention to this week – you can also currently get her gorgeous Ghost floral midi dress, complete with chic contrasting Peter Pan collar and handkerchief hem, for half the price. That’s £64.50 down from £129.
Apologies in advance to our bank balances, but with offers this good, it’s becoming harder and harder to resist…
