Seasalt..is it all considered frumpy?

I have developed a particular love for Seasalt clothes..not the patterned things, but the basics like knitwear, trousers (the wide legged cords), the boots, the more tailored blazers etc..is it all considered frumpy? I'm also a Dr Marten, Kin etc kind of girl, so I try and mix it up a little.

When I read about it on here I took a look and to me it's quite frumpy. But I'm alternative so I have a certain look/image anyway.

Must admit I have boot envy there. Why don’t they come in a 42?

I really dislike that kind of comment.

Visiting London from Melbourne recently, I saw Seasalt for the first time in the flesh at M&S. Well-made but terribly aging styles, not helped by the current fashion for fussy prints so ubiquitous at the moment. At nearly 68, I find such acres of print project a milkmaidish air. Small doses only, a blouse perhaps, but not in the current Seasalt range.

Yes - this is the third colour.

If they are the best boots ever why are you needing to replace them, or are you buying different colours?
Oops. Sorry. Are they comfortable?

Fat Face started off selling clothing items at ski resorts and is named after a ski slope in Val-d'Isère.
That's interesting. Though I think they used to have an outdoor-sy or surf shop atmosphere many years ago. Could just have been the coastal branch I used to visit, however!
Was that not Fat Willy's Surf Shack? 🤣

The Conwenna boots are beautifully comfortable. They come up a bit wide and I've got narrow feet, so I have to wear thickish socks with them. I love them. And anybody who thinks they are 'frumptastic' (whatever the fuck that means) is entitled to their opinion, but is wrong. They're just boots.
I wear the black ones with everything from jeans, to mini/midi dresses, to a sequin mini skirt and black tights. The brown ones feel beautifully autumnal and go nicely with reds, greens, dark florals and denim. I've now ordered the deep red ones.

Well i got the Janelle coat today with 30% off so I'm delighted with life! I had my last one for 7 years. I still have it actually and its still in good condition its just a bit snug on me these days.

Thanks to this thread I've just investigated the wide legged cords, and ordered some together with a sleeveless pullover. And there is a discount on their site at the moment, depending on the value of your total order! I've tended to steer away from their clothes in recent years, because I'm not over fond of tunics, or prints, despite being a 60-something who lives in a small west country town.

I'm not a tunic or print fan either, but I have found some non tunic/print gems there recently.
