Styling the Joe Browns Mix It Up tunic

Black Joe Browns Mix it up tunic

This particular style of tunic has been a welcome return in the Joe Brown’s catalogue for years and years. They change the colours and they change the fabrics slightly, but the style is the same, and I love it! I also own this tunic in dark red, but for this blog post, I thought I’d show you how I wore my black and grey one….

The Joe Browns Mix it Up dress is actually quite similar to the sort of clothes I make for Threads of a Fairytale, which is maybe why I’m drawn to it! It’s a patchwork of different fabrics and harmonising colours sewn together to make a tunic dress the perfect length to wear with leggings or skinny jeans when you don’t want your bum out! For this photo-shoot I’m wearing it with black fleece-lined thick leggings perfect for keeping me warm at this time of year!

I’m also wearing a pair of boots I bought from Amazon specifically for the trip away. This was actually a whole year ago when Chris and I stayed in Connecticut for a month and went exploring every weekend. These outfit photos were taken at Sleepy Hollow, which was really exciting as I’m a big fan of the film! Anyway, the boots are lined in faux fur and are pretty grippy in the snow and ice, so I do recommend them. However, if you’re thinking of purchasing a pair, I would advise you go up a size as the warm lining makes them very snug!

Styling the Joe Browns Mix it up dress

I bought this Mix It Up tunic dress so long ago, I can’t actually remember when! (It may actually be a second hand purchase from a charity shop) I like it because the materials are warm, and a bit stretchy, making it really comfortable to wear. But mainly, I’m always on the look-out for slightly unusual, quirky fashion, and this item from Joe Browns is perfect!

How to style red velvet trousers
November 22, 2017
I’m covering two of autumn / winter 2017 fashion trends here: velvet, and red! These are actually two of my favourite things, so I was pretty chuffed to find them both together in these trousers from Joe Browns. I went very casual with this outfit, but as velvet is really a luxurious fabric, you could also style them up to be really smart. I could swap my old battered converse for a pair of heeled boots and there you have your day to night outfit sorted!….

How to dress more creatively (part 4) Styling winter white
January 28, 2020
I wasn’t sure whether to put this outfit into my ‘How to dress more creatively’ series, because even I wouldn’t recommend bare thighs in the minus temperatures! However apparently there’s a saying in America that you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day (early September) and I want to dispel this myth! We had fun with the photos and I wanted to show you the gorgeous dress – the outfit could always work indoors!…
