Dress of the Day: Classic little black boat neck jersey dress from Oli


I love jersey dresses. They’re so easy to wear, and can be dressed up or down as required. This boat necked dress from Oli doesn’t look like much in the picture, but there’s just so much you could do with it: dressing up up with heels and accessories or dressing it down with boots. It has a real 60s vibe about it, too, that makes me want to back-comb my hair and wear it with white boots and a beehive. Well, maybe not…

It’s also super-cheap at £25, and – wonder of wonders – actually has sleeves! I’m amazed: so many of the so-called "winter" dresses in the stores at the moment are short sleeved or sleeveless, but this one will keep you warm and not force you to hunt around for something suitable to wear over the top.

    That dress is adorable! And you’re right, there’s so much potential for chic outfits.

    LUST. That’s a darling dress. Imagine it with a short strand of big peacock pearls…crap almighty, why is this shop not in the US?
