On my most recent store visit to Dorothy Perkins I picked up a few items in the summer sale. Three bargain vest tops in three floral colours and designs. Two pairs of capri ultra soft jeggings, and a floral bomber jacket.
(It had to be a changing room selfie because I was so pleased with my finds).
Bomber Jacket Styling; Capri Skinny Jeans in Peach to match the sleeves of the jacket, black vest with floral design to match the flowers on the jacket front. You can pair this with flats or sandals or a nice pair of summer shoes. The bomber jacket is a staple piece of fashion for your wardrobe and I wanted to invest in one while they were on trend. I adore floral patterns so this was perfect for me.
Bomber Jacket styling; Black skinny jeans and a blue floral vest, a casual look to be worn with flats or trainers. This is ideal for a cooler summer evening and ideal for Autumn layering as well. The jacket is great to brighten up plain clothing if you’re after a feature piece. Bomber jackets are all the rage right now and many on the high street have a floral design, if you want to stay on trend I can recommend you buy one. They circle around in fashion as well, so try and get a good quality item that you can revisit in a few years time.
Reviews of all items purchased in the sale;
Floral Bomber Jacket / Floral Vest Tops / Skinny Capri Jeggings
Quality 4/5 – 5/5 – 4/5
Value for Money 4/5 – 5/5 – 5/5
Wash and Wear 4/5 – 5/5 – 4/5
Appearance 5/5 – 4/5 – 4/5
Overall the materials that Dorothy Perkins use wash and wear well, though I find that after a few wears the jeggings colour can fade a little. Being the top end of petite I can wear the capri jeggings and find they are not too short, which means I can still wear them in the winter with boots, which means I’m getting a year round use out of them. Something to consider if you’re tall and buying capri, you may only be able to wear them in warmer months.
The vest tops wear the best, they don’t adjust in size either which shows good manufacturing. They are soft against the skin and comfortable to wear too. Vests are great as statement tee’s and also great for layering as the cooler months set in.
The bomber jacket material is a little more delicate but it’s so stunning when worn that I don’t mind taking the extra care with it. It’s comfortable to wear and it’s an ideal length for my torso. I found the arm length to also be satisfactory and the jackets zip was good quality too.
The items I purchased in the sale were good value for money when reduced and I would definitely look again at the sales because I nearly always go home with some bargains like these.
Thank you very much for reading this review today. As most of you will know DP’s is my favourite high street store, so if you like reading these posts then look out for more fashion reviews coming soon.
