Yes, I’m excited about Zara.com, yes, I’m dying to get my freshly-bought items…but no, that hasn’t quashed my naturally materialistic nature. Revive, Asos’s new line of vintage-inspired clothing, launched on Friday, and is a small and slightly odd collection for the ladylike among us.
The dresses are really rather lovely; I am a little taken by this green number, which I think has beautiful vintage-style details. They style it with a chunky cardigan with elbow patches, and there ain’t nothing wrong with that:
The ‘underwear’ is definitely a highlight for me; impractical as they are, I may not be able to resist these delicate little shorts:
Never fear, however, footwear and outerwear is catered for, with this country-chic cape, and yummy moss-green jodphurs:
Here is one of the obligatory aviator jackets, but honestly? I’m more interested in the cute pom-pom headband:
I’m really not a hat person (it’s the unruly hair) but that or the faux-fur hat below might tempt me:
And finally, just because I like em….the velvet peg trousers. They’re in a tasteful colour, and they appear to drape beautifully. Velvet dresses always feel a bit ‘first birthday party’ for me, but these may well have pushed me into the velvet-fan camp.
My grandma will hate them, but then, she wouldn’t approve of going out in a slip and cardigan, either.
Will you be wearing velvet this winter? And which items have beckoned to you, from amongst the vast array of A/W fashions?
