Stealing Lorraine Kelly’s style has become something of a habit for us lately. Whether she’s brightening up our mornings in a Topshop showstopper or inspiring a set of bargain purchases from H&M, she rarely gets it wrong when it comes to her on-screen style.
Case in point: today’s animal print shirt dress from Next, which has ticked all of our requirements in a go-to summer dress in one fell swoop. Lorraine, 59, chose the flattering short sleeved, button-front outfit for this morning’s show, teamed with a pair of simple black heels from Daniel Footwear.
The zebra print number won the presenter countless compliments from fans, with one writing: ‘😍 gorgeous dress, love watching out for your outfits, firstly on TV then [Instagram]’ and another agreeing: ‘Oh I so love copying your fashion style… #lovebeing50+’
It would appear other shoppers agree with the praise, as the dress is already marked as out of stock in several sizes – although if yours is one of them, it’s marked as a ‘new in’ design, so you may still be able to try your luck in store.
Alternatively, if you’re not so into the lady in red look, you’ll be pleased to hear that the piece is also available in navy tie-dye, cream zebra and khaki leopard print options too, with the same tie waist and shirt collar.
Speaking to Good Housekeeping about her fashion philosophy earlier this year, Lorraine said: ‘I always say to people that it doesn’t matter what age you are, don’t be frightened to go into shops that you think are for 18 or 19-year-olds.
‘Of course, you’re not going to go for the cutting-edge fashionista silliness, but you might find a skirt, dress, top or a T-shirt. You can just wear what suits you and what you feel happy and comfy in’ – and if that means finds as fabulous as this one, we’re all for it!
