Grey matters


On the hanger, this looks like a boring, oversized grey sweatshirt with a weird frilled hem.

On a person, it becomes a cute sweater dress that gives a nod to this season's sportswear trend.

And, what appears to be grey jersey is, in fact, 80% silk and 20% angora (we're talking luxe sweater dress here!).

So, the moral of this story is: never judge a book by its cover - or rather, never judge a piece of clothing by its hanger appeal alone. Even the most unpromising items hanging up in-store can turn out to be the most surprising and best finds.

I like how the drawstring hem creates cuteness and detail to this athletic design, how the contrasting fine ribbed sleeves are extra-long and the fact that it's got side pockets, too.

Oh, and it's also 50% off in the COS sale now. Down from £59 to £29.50.

  1. I bought this - I love it, but it leaves fluff all over everything! does the same happen to you?

  2. I hadn't noticed until you mentioned it, but yes, it does leave fluff over my tights! I'm sure it didn't when I first got it though. Have shrunk mine slightly in the wash, too :(
