Do you ever rediscover a great high street brand and wonder why you ever stayed away for so long? Miss Selfridge has gone slightly under our radars in recent years, overshadowed by bigger high-street hitters like Zara and M&S – but a quick look through the S/S 19 collection has reminded us just why we loved shopping there in the past.
We’re not the only ones who’ve been rediscovering the charms of the brand this season – Lorraine Kelly was spotted on the set of her TV show wearing a fabulous printed midi dress from Miss Selfridge recently, with fans saying it was one of the best looks she’d worn in ages.
‘Lorraine looked gorgeous in this dress today,’ wrote one fan on the Lorraine Instagram page, followed by a second who agreed: ‘Loved the dress beautiful on her.’
The dress is Miss Selfridge’s aptly named Kelly Spliced Print Wrap Midi Dress, which is currently in stock on the brand website in sizes 8-16, and priced at £45. However, Miss Selfridge is also running a promotion that gives you 20 per cent off full price items for a limited time using the code HEAT20 – we tried it on Lorraine’s dress, and it works!
Speaking of heat, the piece is perfect for the confusing transitional weather the UK has been experiencing lately – sunny one day, stormy the next! You can layer it up in the cold with tights and boots, safe in the knowledge that it will still look lovely with bare legs and a basket bag, as proved by Miss Selfridge’s styling (below).
Lorraine, meanwhile, teamed hers with a pop of colour, in the form of contrasting blue pointed heels from Kurt Geiger, and it looked gorgeous. We feel a summer wedding look coming on…
