The Jaeger dress I wore in the Style Tribes photo shoot (now available HERE) has opinion-dividing credentials – the midi length, the funnel neck, the sack-shaped silhouette – but I’m a fan. And sometimes it pays to play around with proportions. Look at Balenciaga in the 1950s. Made in the UK, the dress is from the Jaeger’s new Laboratory collection; it’s also khaki green and covers my varicose veins. To me, this limited edition midi feels a little Carine Roitfeld, and very Ageless Rocker. That’s the Hush biker jacket nonchalantly slung over my shoulder, though a tuxedo jacket would work, too:
The midi dress has a relaxed shape, is comfortable to wear and could make an easy alternative to the jumpsuit; just not with those shoes. Footwear that makes you look like you’ve got something wrong with your feet is always a no-no. Much better to go for a pair of elegant heeled ankle boots, Mary Janes or trainers.
