AU­TUMN FAVOURITES

Ar­ti­choke is known for sell­ing well-cut jeans that fit most shapes and sizes at a price that won’t break the bank...

EDP Norfolk - - Promotiona­l Feature -

A rep­u­ta­tion that goes be­yond Nor­folk as we reg­u­larly send parcels to Scot­land, Lon­don and the south coast and have even been asked to ex­port the odd pair too!

We have the same phi­los­o­phy when it comes to ladies’ shirts. Like the women who work in our shops, the ladies we sell to come in var­i­ous shapes and sizes - which means the blouses that we sell do too. We thought you might like to see a few of our favourites for this au­tumn...

The white shirt

The orig­i­nal wardrobe sta­ple. A clas­sic that goes every­where and with every­thing: suited and booted to work, tucked into jeans with an easy slouchy el­e­gance or loose over skin­nies for a crisp clas­sic look.

The mark of a great white shirt is that it can be worn with at least 10 out­fits - ca­sual and dressy - and be ma­chine-wash­able. If you only have room for one white shirt in your wardrobe, go for sim­ple and un­der­stated. This sea­son, how­ever, we are all fight­ing over this fab­u­lous Tinta blouse - with just the right amount of ruf­fles, it’s so “Saint Lau­rent” but with a high street price tag.

The flo­ral shirt

The fash­ion world’s ob­ses­sion with flo­rals con­tin­ues this sea­son and through into next spring, too. To re­flect this trend we’ve cho­sen this beau­ti­ful state­ment piece from Gre­nouille. Like a lot of our gar­ments, it’s the per­fect trans-sea­sonal piece. A word that’s hard on the ear but easy on your bank bal­ance - put sim­ply, that means it can be worn year-round.

If your of­fice has a strict dress code, in­stead of a dress why not choose a flo­ral print shirt to wear with your tai­lored trousers. Al­ter­na­tively, a flo­ral shirt will brighten up a win­ter’s day when worn sim­ply with jeans and a gilet.

The tu­nic

Love them or loathe them, it seems that the tu­nic is here to stay and if, as pre­dicted, wide leg trousers make a come­back a tu­nic will look just as fab­u­lous with them as they do with skin­nys. It’s an­other trans-sea­sonal piece that will look just as good in July as it does in Novem­ber and, al­though great for cov­er­ing a mul­ti­tude of sins, they do look best when slightly fit­ted. I heard re­cently that be­fore buy­ing any item of cloth­ing you should be sure that you will be able to wear it at least 35 times. This is al­most im­pos­si­ble with evening­wear un­less it can trans­late into daywear too. At Ar­ti­choke, we hope to solve the dilemma with a small col­lec­tion that will do both.
