Selected clothing

I’m just loving the Selected line of clothing: nearly every piece is a classic with a twist – wearable, elegant and comfortable. Perfect for building that elusive capsule wardrobe. I’m even plotting if I can make recreations of some of these pieces myself… funny how when you start sewing you want to make everything yourself from now on.

I adore these elegant monochrome dresses. The first one looks like it’d be pretty easy to recreate – just a wrap with wide kimono sleeves, so no fastenings to worry about.

Little black dress made more interesting with texture and a low tied back. Again an easy elastic-waist shape to copy.

selected-sweats

Sweatpants that are almost acceptable to wear outside – right? I definitely want to tackle sewing trousers soon, but crotches scare me.

Minimally cool waterfall blazer

selected-tees

Give me a perfect slouchy, slubby tee and I am a happy girl.

Interesting folded-bag texture print on this tee

The line’s available from ASOS and their own site in euros.

  1. Sometimes I find Asos overwhelming with its thousands of brands in inventory. Unless I’m in the mood for window shopping, I just don’t feel like weeding through all of it! So I’m glad to hear about this brand from your entry — their pieces look absolutely lovely.

    1. I agree! I usually happen across certain brands on there by chance. Check out Dansk too, they’re a Danish brand with great basics.

  2. I actually bought the first two dresses from ASOS before xmas. But then sent them back. Both dresses looked a lot different in reality. The fabric was very shiny on both and not at all what I had imagined! Let me know how you get on because making my own version of the first one sounds excellent.

    1. Ah, that’s a shame. Good to know though. The great thing about sewing is you can choose exactly what fabric you’d like it in.. and tailor a perfect fit!

  3. I had never heard of Selected before, but you’re right the collection is great. I particularly like the back detailing on the black dress – it just makes it that little bit different.

  4. oops, didn’t mean to press enter there. was just going to say, checked out your blog for the first time today. it’s lovely . gonna book me tickets to the lichenstein exhibition too. come say hi sometime- thedalstonyears.wordpress.com
