I treated myself to a little retail therapy last weekend and among the stops I made was a visit to Dunnes Stores.
Wow, the store was bursting with colour – the best display and choice I’ve seen in years!
Did I purchase? Of course, I did, a full length camel coat – €35 only, classic shape, two front buttons with generous pockets – a steal, can be worn with formal and casual wear.
I also purchased a divine green printed ruffle dress from the Savida range (above).
Viewers, if you need to treat yourself in advance of the grim and grey winter ahead, get into Dunnes now.
I was gobsmacked at the fab range of coats and jackets from Gallery, Savida and Carolyn Donnelly.
There are military tunic style coats, oversized warm and wonderful coats, and stylish fitting jackets in fab colours.
I love the bright blue and royal blue ensembles – trouser suit with double breasted jacket. Gold encrusted buttons, and mock pockets – almost a nautical touch but sooo stylish! Jacket €40, and could be paired with matching trousers from Savida’s crisp collection, so well tailored. Sizes XXS up to XXL – see feature photo.
As for the pricing, honestly, the top of the range coats were modestly priced at €50 and €60.
There are short jackets, winter jackets, knee length and full length coats, duffle coat, houndstooth coats, aviator jackets, puffa style outerwear, gillets, etc. Honestly, Dunnes Stores has it all!
As for the Christmas season, check out Dunnes statement dress in luscious red velvet dress from the Savida range, as above. Designed with a fitted shirred bodice and cuffs, it is complemented by a full skirt which moves beautifully. A frill trim at the waist completes this stunning piece – only €35 for the tall and willowy build, a gem.
The Savida ruffle dress I purchased can be worn all year round – with heels or flip flops in the summer, opaque tights, pumps or ankle boots in the winter – the v-neck and tiered skirt is very flattering for a chunkier figure like mine.
Infused with a relaxed yet sophisticated sense of style, this single-breasted coat is soft and unlined, ensuring total comfort. Two generous side pockets enhance its practical appeal, making it a true wardrobe staple.
Another piece I loved was the military style coat, double-breasted ribbed coat from Savida with a faux fur collar, and mock pockets. Just gorgeous, it will never date.
There’s a pink dress – also from Savida – in vibrant print, this dress features gathered detailing on the sleeves, two patch pockets, and a matching belt for a more defined fit. Can be paired with over-the-knee boots if you really want to be funky!
Check out a houndstooth patterned suit – you will see these everywhere this season. Dunnes’ take entails a classic houndstooth pattern. A cool miniskirt from Savida has a glitter thread throughout and black velvet detailing. Fully lined, it also features large gold-tone and black buttons. Pair with the matching jacket for a look with impact.
A gorgeous aviator-style jacket in faux leather with soft faux fur trim, this will work with everything from denim to dresses – €50 and a pink city coat from Gallery, absolutely gorgeous at €60 (below).
