Coco’s Tea Party beats the January blues with the new pieces from Tu
“I’ll admit it: I’ve never taken much pleasure in dressing for January and February. The festive cheer experienced throughout December quickly fades into a distant memory. And when there are weeks of bleak grey weather ahead of you, it’s hard to muster much enthusiasm for fashion. In fact, I’d be quite happy to curl up under the duvet and hibernate until March 1.”
“But the show must go on, as they say… and the latest drop for Tu is definitely putting a spring back in my step. Yes, it may still be cold outside but you can still awaken your fashion senses with bold knits and statement prints.”
“I adore the green tasselled roll neck. The detailing on the sleeves gives it a luxe finish and the vivid colour makes it feel like spring is just around the corner. I’ve been styling it with a leopard print skirt and leather ankle boots for a playful daytime look. But it also pops when paired with jeans and trainers. It’s a really hardworking piece and will definitely elevate your pre-spring wardrobe.”
“For evenings out I’ve been daring myself to step away from the safety of my favourite LBDs. This mesh check midi dress is just what my wardrobe was missing. The long sleeves and loose fit ensure maximum comfort, yet the lace cut-outs and ruffle detailing provide a dressy effect that makes it suitable for evening affairs. Wear with black tights and heeled boots for a night out. Or layer the dress over a tank top and skinny jeans to transform it for daytime.”
“And if you really feel the need to hibernate over a chilly weekend, slip into a pair of comfy leggings and wrap-up in this eyelash knit coatigan. It’s so soft, it literally feels like you’re wearing a hug!”
