I've been wearing the stripe with a loose shirt, and whatever shoes I can walk in at the time (bad Achilles). Or a loose silk jumper. I'll look into the drape top. Sounds intriguing.

LOVE the silky jumper idea

Striped skirt here too.

Today I wore mine with a red tee and red flat ballet pumps. Last week with a loose fitting capped sleeve blouse in green and navy wedge espadrilles.

I'm finding it pretty versatile so far.

I think this might work, certainly with the black one which I also bought
Will probably get the grey.

JackandDiane Tue 07-Jun-16 22:05:48

oh i got the white. it is TERRIBLE on me - if anyone wants it for a tenner then message me
the line down the front does not suit a comely bosom

Just found this image online. I know it's not the exact skirt but I love how she's styled herself.

That is basically the look when teamed with The Official Partner. That's basically how I look anyway....

JackandDiane Tue 07-Jun-16 22:11:52

lol at official partner

Can you link to the uniqlo drape top? I searched but no cigar

I've got the plain navy one but haven't worn it yet as I've not got anything that goes

JackandDiane Tue 07-Jun-16 22:20:18

quality slimey fabric
I have the black white and navy - the white is not as nice on me

Looks good with this Boden T in navy - 30% off ATM

JackandDiane Tue 07-Jun-16 22:24:36

i wish i had got the ruched top in stripes to see what it looked like
I got it in black - not necc to match with the black one but it was a bit meh

JackandDiane Tue 07-Jun-16 22:25:26

now they ARE nice - i had a white one last year which has lasted

BinRaidingRaccoon Tue 07-Jun-16 22:27:46

Good to know, I'll save the cash for another nice silk top when I can find one. Also liking 'official partner'.

I'm thinking of introducing the ruched dress into the wardrobe. I've got shit arms though, so would need an official partner for that.

JackandDiane Tue 07-Jun-16 22:28:50

i bought the dress and i HATE DRESSES
the maroon one for a wedding

i have tits, you see

CamdenTownie Tue 07-Jun-16 22:35:02

I love the Boden ruched skirt, but can I ask what shape you need to be for it to look good? I'm a round size 10, I'd say petite but more short if I'm honest- I'm concerned id end up looking like a sausage in it too.


BinRaidingRaccoon Tue 07-Jun-16 22:40:27

Same here. Just ordered a brace of those Uniqlo tops, shame the lace one was disappointing. I'm wondering if it's worth sizing up on it, but it might just look a bit baggy.

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff Tue 07-Jun-16 23:11:18

What's the official partner?

taybert Wed 08-Jun-16 06:51:14

I'm a short 10. I don't believe I look like a sausage. My husband has commented more than once that he thinks it looks nice. He does like sausages though so that's probably inconclusive.

taybert Wed 08-Jun-16 06:53:07

Official Partner

JackandDiane Wed 08-Jun-16 06:53:31

12. Slim legs. Er.. Dunno what else to say. Slight tum.

Scroll back for the official partner. Uniqlo

I found the stripe wasn't good over my stomach- the lines were too curved to look flattering- but the plain black looks good (though I don't really wear black in summer, will keep for Autumn)

bloodypassword Wed 08-Jun-16 07:46:55

I'm a shorty and found the stripes (I got the dress) did not flatter my bust and made my arse look even more saggy. So sadly it was returned but I'm loving the skirt. I think a smart silk /jersey top would look good but it'd have to be a shortish one , ie on the waist.Too long and draped might spoil the effect otherwise.

Floisme Wed 08-Jun-16 08:01:58

Skirt is great for sagginess and wobbliness. I wear it just below knee (so long length even though I'm short) as above the knee made my thighs look bigger.

Wearing with loose fitting Ts and plimsolls. Bare legs as long as temp is above 20 degrees.
