Amanda is my sister. She says she only cares about fashion in so far as she can sweat around in it and not worry if she drops food onto the hem of her t-shirt or splats oil onto her dress. Style, she says, isn’t something she really thinks about. But between you and me, that’s not the case.

Exhibit A: the outfit above – a sixties mod shape, in monochrome, rough and toughened with a pair of ugly-chic boots, punctuated with an emphatic silver zip front and centre. 90s punk, 60s funk collision. Aside from the shorter length and the possibility of comments about after work plans to explain the fancy dress, I see this as entirely work appropriate. If only I could appropriate it and look as cool…

Psychedelic. The print can get a little intense.
