& Other Stories newest drop is a treasure trove of beautiful clothes – here are 14 pieces we love

& Other Stories newest drop is a treasure trove of beautiful clothes – here are 14 pieces we love

In need of a pick me up? The new in page of & Other Stories will make your day a little better – here are 14 pieces we love 


The weather has turned.

The sun has gone into hiding for a little rest and we wait in hope for its return. Until then, we may have to look for sunshine elsewhere.

There is no better way to boost a dark day than a beautiful piece of clothing. Some may look at clothes as mere pieces of materials, but I think they can change the trajectory of the following hours.

Putting on a picture-perfect dress can be the difference between a smile and a frown. It can make your weekly lockdown shopping trip a lot more exciting. In times like this, we all need to look after ourselves in whatever way we can. If this means putting on a special top or flattering pair of jeans, then so be it.

Sparkle

The new in page of & Other Stories is currently a treasure trove of clothes that will add sparkle to the mundane. Dazzling dresses in floral prints, ruffled tops, linen midi skirts, and smocked shirts are welcome delights.

This drop is feminine but appeals to all aesthetic tastes. Where there are prints, there are also plain canvases. The simple back strap midi dress is a lesson in minimalistic dressing. While the open back jumpsuit is making us dream of dancing nights.

We want it all.

So just remember that although it may be dull outside, it doesn’t mean your clothes have to be.
