The time has come folks… restaurants are polishing their silverware, cafés are filling with the smell of espresso and fresh baked goods, bartenders are back in training to get their cocktail shaking guns back in shape… and we all have to accept that pyjamas as a legitimate fashion choice just aint gonna fly for much longer.
Luckily, Wilbur the Label have us covered with some choice wardrobe additions that are so comfy those flannel co-ords will feel like a distant dream. The dream child of mum of two, Rebecca, Wilbur the Label is a local Perth business established back in 2017 with the aim of providing flattering fashion to busy women – designing pieces that can easily be taken from one aspect of your busy life to another. I was lucky enough to test drive some of my favourite pieces from their website…
The Milano Overalls
Oh lord knows I love me pair of overalls, especially of the baggy linen variety. Baggy being the operative word here as we navigate our way out of a WFH diet of second breakfasts, elevenses and afternoon tea… *stomach gurgles at the sheer thought of an afternoon tea cinnamon bun*
When I tried these babies on for the first time a multitude of styling options flashed through my head… turned up hems with some killer stilettos, a cropped long sleeve knit and platform sneaks, not to mention all the potential belt swap out options. They are a linen cotton blend making them super easy to care for, as well as being sturdy enough to stand the test of time. If you don’t have a set of linen overalls in your wardrobe, rectify that immediately. This makes three for me!
The Tee Dress
One thing that stood out to me most while scrolling through Wilbur the Label’s website is how versatile each piece is. They have a great range of tee dresses which, let’s be honest, are one of the greatest wardrobe basics ever invented. Last minute dinner plans? Leather jacket, heels…. T-shirt dress. Going shopping and need to dress for easy try-ons and lots of walking? Comfy sneakers plus… t-shirt dress. Planning on setting a new record at one of Perth’s many epic buffet restaurants? Hun you know a stretchy t-shirt dress has your back when you go back for that third lap around the dessert bar.
I went for one in a navy stretch rib fabric, and a fancier one in a black and silver sparkle. The styling possibilities are endless!
Basic Long Sleeve Tees
Wilbur stock some great long sleeved tees that are perfect for layering up during these chilly months. Available in black and white, they would go great under the overalls as well as being a quick and easy style up with jeans and heels. Their light weight fabric makes them even more versatile as they could easily transition through spring and early summer with some denim shorts or a high-waisted linen skirt. *Makes mental note to hunt for a linen skirt come spring*.
Happy shopping my loves, and yay for having a reason to get dressed up again!
