What we’re buying from… Sosandar

We’re always on the look out for new shops, whether on the high street or online, that can give us what we want. And what is that? Stylish clothes that are easy to wear. We don’t want tops that ride up to show off our menopausal middle. Or dresses that are that little bit too short.

That’s where our newest find Sosandar comes in. Created by two women who previously worked on fashion magazines, their mission is to create clothes that are fashionable but also work in real life – and as big fans of their clothes, we can definitely tell you they’re perfect for busy women who wear more than one hat. Here’s what we’ve been buying - and wearing - at TGIOF towers this month…

Quirky prints
As well as classic leopard print and polka dots, Sosandar do some great alternative prints, including jaguars and zebras. They’re not as zany as you think though – wearing a quirky print elevates boring jeans, while the green jaguar dress is our current go to. It looks fab with a denim jacket slung over it and teamed with some Converse.

Not so basic basics
Yes, we all know we should have a white t-shirt and well-fitting jeans but buying basic stuff can be boring, however, Sosandar ensure that even their wardrobe mainstays have added details that make them stand out from the crowd. We love the zip details on this white t-shirt and Andrea loves their denim dress – perfect for days out or throw on heels and you’re ready for that rare night out!

Holiday must-haves
We love being able to sort out our holiday wardrobe in one click. Sosandar have a great selection for whatever holiday you’re going on – be it city break or beach holiday. We’ve just snapped up the maxi dress for our next holiday – we’ll be wearing it over our swimsuit and also down to the bar with some gold accessories for those sundown cocktails.

Shoes you can walk in
Their shoes may not be the cheapest around, but they’re super stylish and – this is the most crucial bit for us – you can walk in them. Plus the styles are timeless – we’ll be wearing these studded sandals for years to come, making the cost per wear a good one (well that’s what we’re telling ourselves anyway…)
