Whatever your body shape or size – this style is your friend. Designed originally to be worn literally for tea – this style can take you from school runs and errands, to lunch, to cocktails. It’s a fashion editor’s ‘must-have’ right now, but I don’t think it ever truly went away. This piece is never not relevant.
Check out the Queen looking as fresh and as on point as the model on the left from this season Boden. Ageless indeed. With its figure skimming cut and nipped in waist it’s perfect for hourglasses with the added advantage of arm coverage too. Variations with wider sleeves make it relevant for other body shapes too and availability in a range of fabrics makes it flattering for curvy and straighter figures alike. I love a belt, and using your own means you can place the waist where you need. High waisted or low waisted you can make it work with the right belt. Button through? Try wearing it open over trousers. They’re even better if they’ve got pockets!
