I absolutely love Sister Jane's new Spring collection. The collection is an alternative take on the girl gang look. Instead of biker jackets and jeans think peter pan dresses, ruffles and bell sleeves. The designs are feminine, fun and true to the London based brand's retro style.
I thought I'd start with my three favourite pieces. The forget me not jacquard dress has the most gorgeous floral design and flared sleeves. It reminds me of a dress from Valentino's A/W 2013 collection. The jacquard material is also used in cigarette trousers and a blazer. The confetti shadowplay dress is one of my favourite dresses from the collection. The combination of tweed and pleats is very Chanel-esque and the lace back really adds to it. Tweed is a major feature of this collection. They have with a pink and grey tweed blazers, skirts, tops and dresses. The belle de jour sweater has amazing ruffle detail on the sleeve, it also looks like the comfiest jumper ever because it is in a soft suede material.
Exaggerated sleeves are such a big trend this year and a major feature of this collection. I love the pleated front and the black brooch on the mint condition blouse. The saved by the bell dress is a modern take on the fifties silhouette, with bell sleeves and a full a-line skirt. I love the fun doodle print on the teen idol dress. It is also featured on the red teen idol ruffle blouse.
There are some lovely mustard coloured pieces in the collection, including the chartreuse lace top which has the most amazing flared sleeves. The peter pan dress is always a staple of Sister Jane's collections and it returns this season with a contrasting mint pussy bow. The primrose tiered top is in a delicate pink shade with amazing tiered ruffle sleeves.
Sister Jane is one of the best places for retro dresses with a modern twist. The macaroon oxford dress is a classic sixties shift dress, however, the ruffled bib gives it a preppy look. I love the pearl embellishment on the collar of the mustard dress. The main material of the dress is also slightly see through in places to reveal the lace overlay. The dear diary coven dress is one of the few darker pieces of the collection. The high neck collar, ruffle sleeves and swing shape is a modern take on the LBD.
