In the Spring I bought I lovely burgundy tea dress with a cream bird print that I've loved wearing as it is hugely flattering. But how do I wear it in winter and keep warm?
My bottom half is sorted with cream knit tights and boots. But I can't work out the top half for the life of me. I have ordered and returned a LOT of cardis - belted, long, boyfriend, cropped, waterfall, fitted, v neck, blah blah blah. You name it, I've tried it. But all of them just cover up the flattering fitted shape of the top of the dress and leave me looking like a bag lady.
So, is there a solution to this, or do I put my dress away until next summer?
Are the Uniqlo ones like a jersey t-shirt material or thinner? I want a couple for the winter & see they're on offer at the mo. But I wanted a thinner, tight-knit type like the M & S Heatgen ones - have felt these & they're lovely & thin & soft but £4 more.
Thank you for all your suggestions, I have a cream polo and a cream long sleeve tshirt in the wardrobe, plus a scarf that might go as well. Sadly I don't have a biker jacket and can't stretch to one right now, but I'll bear it in mind at sale time
Get yourself on eBay. I saw a fabulous oasis one go for £9 the other day . They only get better with age ( although This one looked airily new ) .. I nearly bought it even though I have one !! ( sucker for a bargain emotion!!)
