I will hold my hands up and say that I am not the best at keeping tabs on independent designers, especially affordable independent designers. There are a lot out there and, if we are being frank, that includes a lot of pretty bad ones – it is much easier to skip straight to high street and online favourites like ASOS or Topshop than sift through 100 generic ‘t-shirt companies’. Capitalism, baby. That being said, finding a good indy brand is worth the slog.
Emma Warren got in touch with me after I commented on this freaking adorable pink dinosaur sweatshirt on somebody else’s Instagram post – she makes adorable and affordable embroidered and printed t-shirts, sweatshirts and more. I would go as far as to say that it is impossible to be unhappy while wearing a pink dinosaur sweater.
For a chilly day I layered the jumper over a white rollneck and dark brown vinyl skirt, and finished the look with big hoops and Air Max 97s.
