The festive season is always a tricky one for Wendy and I as we’re often required to attend events straight from work so need some go-to pieces that can work a double shift. Luckily this season Hush have come to the rescue with a gorgeous selection of star print shirts and dresses. For us star print holds the perfect balance of a little bit dressy but also a little bit rock and roll a la Kate Moss. Since missing out on her Equipment collaboration we’ve been seeing stars (excuse the pun). So when we saw that Hush had dipped in to the trend we couldn’t wait to try out some of the pieces.
For me a good shirt is a necessity and constitutes for a large chunk of my wardrobe space only missing out slightly to my over flowing denim obsession. Showing just the right amount of skin when unbuttoned as low as you dare to go, the humble shirt can always be relied on to strike that balance of dressy/not dressy. Just by adding a red lip (my ever faithful Rimmel Redder The Better) and some metallic boots I can take this shirt from day to night. I purchased these silver boots last winter and have to say they’ve been a bit of a style saviour for me. Giving a hint of “nowness” to outfits that require a little bit more than just black, they work in the same way that leopard print would and can make the most basic of denim and knitwear combos feel just that little bit more interesting.
As I’m sure you’ve realised by now here at TGUE we don’t often do dresses but when we do, the shirtdress is often the winning style. Just the right amount of feminine without being considered girly it’s a dress style that can also work the transition of day to night. Worn with ankle boots and this gorgeous Elsa coat for work Wendy would swap it for her trusted leather jacket, a bare leg and gold jewellery to work this dress in the evening. Both of these starry items have already sold out once on the Hush website and it’s easy to see why. With the shirt at £59 and the dress at only £65 they’re the perfect pieces for the festive season and starry nights beyond.
