I often review truly beautiful items of clothing on the blog, stunning dresses that are worthy of a party or a red carpet event. I love doing this, who doesn’t enjoy wearing something exquisite and princessy? But, my wardrobe is full of other things, the sort of clothes I wear every day, for shopping, football practice and the school run. These pieces are just as important for me, I still like to look and feel stylish, even if I am working from home. I genuinely believe that if you look good, you feel better and totally up your game in whatever you happen to be doing.
Gudrun Sjoden is a brand I often reach for. I fell in love with it at a Varg press day quite a few years ago, and the love affair has never ended. The brand produces brilliant quality separates that are both classic and fun, with a great use of pattern and print. Gudrun brings a no-nonsense Scandinavian style to everything, and frankly, if you want a stripy top, there are no better ones than Gudrun’s.
This season, the one item from the Gudrun Sjoden collection that I have been loving is the Organic Knit Tunic. This is totally a hero piece, easy enough to be worn with jeans or leggings for a stylish every day look. It is a part thin knit sweater, one part slouchy tunic, designed to be worn relaxed and lose, and the sizing is generous, I probably should’ve sized down in all honesty, but it is a gorgeous, totally wearable piece that I have worn lots this Winter, whether watching WBA to doing the school run.
Gudrun shows this styled with a skirt for a sort of Art student look, but I prefer this with tighter trousers to highlight the different proportions. The tunic comes in a range of colours, I opted for the rose pink shade, but have to say it is much darker and richer in real life – not a problem but something to remember if you are looking at the pink.
This tunic has a very attractive boat style neckline which means it sits nicely for a statement necklace, and the three quarter sleeves will allow this to be a piece that will work as a transitional piece well into Spring. The hemline has a draped style that also gives it another stylish element.
If you are looking for a hard-working, wearable piece that you will be able to wear again and again, check out the new Spring collection from Gudrun Sjoden here.
