Fashion Fix: SS12 at Oasis
Oasis have certainly been busy: their new collection features more of spring and summer's hottest trends than you can shake a stick at: ladylike chic, prints and florals, pastels, neons and nudes, the 50s and the 1920s...phew!
I love the three looks pictured above: of them all, the first one is probably the most wearable (although obviously not for me, I'd have ketchup down it within three minutes of getting it on.) The buttoned-up white shirt (it's actually a shirt-dress they've used, here, and it's €75; the skirt is €62) is fresh and elegant; the skirt length, and the sheer panels in the shirt, stop the look from being too prim and proper.
Look 2 is so fun; 50s shapes and clashing prints and colours, what's not to like? Apart from the crop top, a singularly unforgiving garment, perhaps best left to those who are teenagers, models, extremely confident or all three. The top is €50, the skirt is €56.
Finally, look 3 shows that matchy matchy can be quite lovely when pulled off well, with a clashing belt, clean lines and, crucially, artfully messed-up hair to stop things looking too done. The bird print trousers are €56; the top, €53.
The Oasis SS12 collection is in store now, or available to buy online. What do you make of the looks above?
