Lorraine Kelly is back at work after her well-earned summer holiday, and within 24 hours she’s already caused a style sellout.
The hot pink shirt dress the star chose for her return to the set of Lorraine was an affordable outfit for River Island, which fans fell in love with instantly. ‘Pretty in pink!’ one complimented Lorraine, while another exclaimed: ‘Lovely dress and colour on you Lorraine, welcome back.’
In fact, viewers were so inspired but the bright and beautiful £46 buy that it sold out completely online in a matter of minutes, and now the only way to get your hands on the piece is heading to your local store and crossing your fingers that they’ll have one in your size.
However, if you’re out of luck on the pink front, all is not entirely lost – we did a bit of digging on the River Island website and found that the same timeless silhouette also comes in a classic black option that’s perfect for autumn, and even better, it’s the exact same price as Lorraine’s colourful pick.
With its flattering waist-cinching tie, button-front detail and satisfyingly weighty woven crepe fabric, the piece will soon become a staple in your office outfit rotation, and could easily be dressed up for an evening out too. Add statement earrings, your favourite boots (early predictions says Victorian lace-up styles will be big this season) and a simple clutch to add a dash of instant wow-factor.
In fact, you could even copy Lorraine and pop on a pair of contrasting animal print pumps to complete your look. Hers are from Dune and appear to be the Annacona Leopard Print Court Shoe, which is currently on sale at £42, down from £70. Another ITV wardrobe bargain!
