I like the look of some on the website and the way they've been styled on the models with tights/boots/beanie.

I'm just concerned they actually might look frump tastic in RL??

Has anyone got one? How do they style them? Of course I would not be teaming them with my CK bag and shoes as that would e ridiculous.....

Just wanted to check I wasn't entering mumsy territory as they're pretty ££££...

I think they'd look good if you were stick thin and 20 ish. If I put one on I would instantly turn into the Queen Mother!

I remember wearing Laura Ashley dresses when i was 18, very waif like with masses of pre raphaelite curls, red lips and doc marten boots.
not the me of today unfortunately....

Yes, that's how I'd imagine the CK ones to look good. Perhaps if you wore it with contrasting colour cardigan/tights and boots? I'm thinking Caitlin Moran stylee...?
