I recently shared my love for the statement accessories from JOY, including a beautiful striking silver collar necklace I currently have from the brand. But I also wanted to share with you the lovely clothes available from the Louche brand at JOY too – such as this Tartan Rubra Shift Dress from the new Manchester store. The clothes are so quirky, stylish and unique – it’s one of my newest favourite places to shop if I want an outfit that not everybody else will be wearing…
I teamed the dress with some shiny black court shoes from Next, very simple yet really effective. The best thing about this dress is that it’s incredibly versatile for most occasions; it’s casual enough to wear to work with some tights in the winter (and of course bare legs in the Summer), yet I would also pop a fitted blazer over this and wear it for an evening out. It’s really loose fitting, with a sort of ‘box style’ fit, where it keeps a structured shape. It’s a nice way to incorporate tartan into your everyday look without being too over powering with colour or style.
For £28, it’s a perfect wardrobe addition, take a look at the rest of the Louche collection over at the JOY website here. If you live in Manchester or tend to visit the city for shopping, I suggest you pop into JOY if you wish for a change from the usual chain stores. As well as ultra stylish clothes and accessories, they also have some uber-cool books, gifts and little ‘bits’ that I find myself automatically drawn to whenever I pop into this store.
The new store is located near Paperchase, 12-14 St Mary’s Gate, heading towards the Deansgate end of town. Happy shopping!
