Tesco Fashion Shoulders it’s way through for AW09

Statement Shoulders Tesco F&F AW09

I was invited to the preview of the Tesco clothing collections for AW09 on Friday and it seems the supermarket chain is shouldering its way into the party season. After finally finding the venue having gained some nicely blistered toes – I had been running around Grand Canal Quay like a loony in 5 inch heels only to find I was on the wrong road. – I entered what I hoped was the correct warehouse slightly clammy and harassed. I pressed the button and the lift opened, two men appeared in front of me carrying what looked like bodies wrapped in cellophane. I swear my heart skipped a beat, I stood frozen to the spot for a second until they reassured me that they were simply mannequins from the preview. I sighed with relief and dashed past them into the lift.

As Tesco do a huge range of clothes, from Kids to Menswear, work wear to casual wear, I headed straight for the womenswear party collection. It was a myriad of sequins, shoulders, lamé and structured dresses and jackets. Stand out pieces included: Silver sequinned, shoulder detail tunic €14, Black sequinned boyfriend jacket, €35; Statement-shoulder tuxedo jacket, €35; Gucci inspired blue and purple tunic, €21; Silver sequinned tunic, €21, Lamé black sequinned shoulder detail tunic, €21. I know that every high street shop may do a sequinned jacket, but this one is fully lined and €35 is a bargain. It is the tunics that I would definitely recommend, they are long enough to wear as dresses with tights for the body-confident, but would look absolutely fantastic teamed with leather trousers too.

I’m definitely going for the Lamé number, the sparkles in the fabric are subtle and the sequins are more matt than the other pieces, I also like the button detail at the back of the neck. If you are still unsure about whether a statement shoulder jacket will suit you, buy Tesco’s tuxedo one for €35 and it won’t matter if it doesn’t because you could remove the shoulder pads and try a more subtle look.

Tesco womenswear is available at the folloing Dublin Stores: Clarehall, Finglas, Tallaght, Nutgrove and Jervis Street.

      Blisters are looking… well bit grim really… but defo not hurting as much. I shall never forget to carry flats with me when I’m not 100% sure where my meeting is, ever again! Getting lost in heels is like getting lost in a car that’s run out of petrol.
