Black and White stripes from Gudrun Sjoden

Gudrun Sjoden is a brand that I can always turn to for a great quality, wear anywhere, dress. Using a range of Eco cotton, this Scandinavian brand assures you of a product that looks great, washes well and is kind to the environment too. My most recent Gudrun dress is the short dress in Eco cotton and elastane blend, and this is the sort of dress that can be dressed up or down, and is in a non crease fabric that makes it perfect for throwing in a holiday suitcase – a total no brainer.

This is such an easy to wear dress – no buttons, zips or fastenings, you simply pull it on over your head. The style is a stripy sundress, but the monochrome means that this is a smarter option, you could add a blazer or a cardigan and a low heeled shoe to make this office appropriate, or throw it on over a swimsuit to hit the bar. The cotton is of a slightly thicker variety, ensuring the fabric is not see thru and the length (just above the knee) makes this suitable for pretty much any age to wear.

Black and white stripes create a perfect canvas for adding a splash of colour. I loved the beads worn by the model in sunshine yellow, so opted for the same shade in my own bag and necklace, but red, orange or a neon pink would look just as good.

I wore the dress on a very hot day and it kept me feeling cool, and yet the dress was substantial enough to not feel underdressed (some sundresses just feel too floaty and transparent, you wouldn’t really wear them anywhere other than the beach). The stretch in the dress also makes it a comfortable option, and I love the slightly boat neckline, so much more interesting than a vest shape.

This dress is currently in the summer sale at Gudrun Sjoden, reduced to £48 from £64, and as this is a dress you will wear over and over again, in a classic design and fabric, I think this is a real bargain buy. There are also different colour ways, watch out for a candy striped white version on the blog next week.

  1. Well – one things for certain, it looks better on you than the model! When I saw the 1st picture I didn’t love it, but you styled the dress in such a nice way and wore it beautifully!

  2. I remember seeing you wearing this on Instagram and loving it on you! It’s such a gorgeous dress and you carry it off so well, I am a massive love of stripes myself so I’m definitely going to take a nosey xx
