Bonmarché New Arrivals

Striped Rugby Top
Bonmarché asked Guest Reviewer, Emma from Mellow Mummy to give her verdict on the new arrivals in their clothing and accessories department this Autumn.

Bonmarché are a name I'm quite familiar with on the high street but I'd never visited their online store before.  They asked me to take a look at their new range of women's clothes and give my verdict on some of their everyday essentials for mums,

I was very tempted by lots of their wintery jackets - teal, purple and navy seem to be the fashionable colours this Autumn which is fine by me as these are all my favourite shades!

I plumped on this Stripe Rugby Top as it is an item of clothing that is smart enough for me to wear to work, or casual enough for the weekends.  I wear it with a long black skirt or with a pair of dark blue jeans.  At £14 I think this rugby top is good value for money as there are lots of occasions on which I would wear it.

I found the sizing to be a bit tricky... I don't think Bonmarché normally cater for women quite as tall as me and so the sleeve length comes up quite short on me so I have to push them up to look more like a 2/3rds sleeve around my elbow, which suits me just fine as that is how I would normally wear a long-sleeved top.  The fabric is a jersey knit from a polyester/cotton mix so it has a little bit of a stretch to it; the style is quite a close fit and, after reading another customer's review online I ordered a size larger than normal and I was grateful of that, if only for the length.

I have found some really great down-to-earth inspiration in the current Bonmarché range and right now on their website they have an offer code for 20% off everything!
