Republic SS10

Posted in Daily Outfits, Fashion.

You may remember a certain lace dress that I’ve worn time and time again. The Mr bought it for me from Republic and I wear it over and over.

Now, I must admit – before this dress, Republic was not a shop I frequented. I was under the misguided impression that it was all urban sportswear. But take a little look at their website and you’ll see I was wrong – it’s jam packed full of beautiful maxi dresses, on-trend pastels and rugged denims. The gorgeous people at Republic kindly sent me some key pieces from their SS10 range to have a play with – everything you see is either brand new in or about to land. Let’s take a look…


Dress by Crafted at Republic, H&M chambray shirt and floral tights, TK Maxx sandals, thrifted bag
I ♥… the fab zip detail and acid wash denim on this dress. Such a rock ‘n’ roll look!

Knotted tee by Miso at Republic, ASOS dress, Primark tights, New Look sandals
I ♥… how this tee can instantly transform an outfit and make it look brand new! It’s so easy to wear. 



Dress by Miso at Republic (worn as top), Primark shorts, pumps and bag, River Island tights, Eclectic Eccentricity necklace
I ♥… the sassy shoulder detail on this dress – those shoulders give it some ‘tude!


Nautical jacket by Miso at Republic (not yet available to buy), faux snakeskin bag by Miso at Republic, H&M jeans, Gap tee, eBay wedges, thrifted necklace
I ♥… the beautiful anchor detailing on the buttons of this jacket. So adorable!

I’m in love with absolutely everything here, but my favourite has to be the nautical jacket. It’s so versatile and I love the Chanel-esque added touches to the sleeves. Everything is so easy to mix with my current wardrobe and the quality is great too. Do you have a favourite look? Tell me by leaving a comment below, or tweet me using the hashtag #RepublicSS10. I’d love to know!

PS – Have you entered my Temporary Secretary giveaway yet? Go have a peep!



I love republic, they have some gorgeous dresses but they’re always waaaaay too short for me which is a shame!

You look fabulous <3 xo


Wow you lucky girl!! You look lovely, there are some lovely pieces there, I especially love the knotted tee!


I so wanted to know what you were going to choose! Don’t you loveeee the nautical jacket? I’ve just tweeted you saying that I think I’m going to exchange it for another size, but still love it. Love the denim dress too, funny we picked 2 of the same things. You work the denim dress so well with that shirt. Fab! Loving Republic xx


Loving the striped floral dress, its so pretty! Just went on their website to have a look, they have some lovely pieces….but the best bit is they let you check if your local store has the items you want in your size!! How fab is that?! I always though that would be such a good idea, as it saves you paying the delivery charge. My new favourite shop!



Love the knotted stripey top – and also that red dress. Wow – such a beautiful, vivid colour. Thanks for your comment – glad you managed to find me. I’m new to blogging so prob haven’t set things up correctly! Yep, I’m in agencyland too. In client services. Part of the reason for getting into Facebook, Twitter and blogging is that clients expect me to know about it all – and now I find myself totally addicted! x

Some lovely looks there, Jen! I’m particularly loving the chambray number at the top, you wear denim so beautifully.
I’m sure I have your ebay slingbacks in purple, I love ’em but they really hurt.


Wow lucky lucky you!!
I love the knotted tee, and the nautical jacket is amazing. Might have to invest in that.

Great looks you’ve put together.



Republic’s great – wish they’d send me clothes :p

I don’t have one of their stores near me, which is a shame, but it makes it that bit more special when I find one when visiting a city!

Coincidentally, I am wearing a top today that I bought from Republic last Summer, when visiting Nottingham – then forgot about & have never worn before – this is the first time! Strange huh?

Anyway, I am in love with that denim dress. I happen to have bought a denim dress today, but it’s nowhere near as nice as that one!


Aloha 🙂

I random found your blog. And you are amazing. I love the way you dress you 😉

I love to invite you to visit my site too.



Oh you are so lucky but deserving! I’m wearing my denum jersey dress today by Crafted at Republic, they do have some great maxis right now.

I LOVE Republic. I have found so many amazing dresses for summer on that website. You look absolutely stunning in all of your pictures, Jen. I just adore your style!! 🙂


oooh i’m liking what i see on the website! i love those fierce shoulders on the stripy floral top.


I don’t dare check out the website – given the lovely things you’ve shown us here today, I’m bound to end up buying something!!

I will admit that i’ve never been into republic myself, sadly i’ve tarred the shop with the same “urban” come chav sort of clothing. I’m happily surprised by the clothes you’re pictured in – I would never have assumed they sold such clothes.

I may have to pop in and have a look!


Amazing outfits you’ve put together here! I usually disregard Republic too but I’ll definitely be having a look in there next time I go shopping. I love the knotted top – it’s really unique but definitely something I think I’d get a lot of wear out of as it could be paired with so many differnet things. x


I LOVE those ebay wedges! Wish I could find some just like that..soo cute! I love the red dress with the striped shirt over it, too. Very clever!


I work in republic, & I own that jacket, striped top & the denim dress! i love your take on it. it can be hard finding things to put with these clothes on the mannequins, as we have a lot of crap among the beautiful finds. you’ve made this stuff look fab!


so cute! i love that acid washed dress too! usually i stay away from white tights, but you make them look so good!!



My favourite is that knotted tee, it plays right into the whole nautical vibe while being unique!


Agreeing with some people, my favorite is also the knotted tee and bright orange pop of a dress! It is so great and matches your bright smile!


I love the knotted tea and red dress outfit – as you say, it transforms an already lovely outfit into something completely new!

You are so lucky. Republic has become one of my favourite shops since a new one opened in Eldon Square. I adore the knotted tee outfit, so nautical and so cute.

Love, Amy Marie


That nautical jacket is so lovely and versatile!

I’m currently coveting a long floral maxi from Republic, well, soon as I’ve sold some of the excess bits and pieces from my wardrobes!


I’ve never heard of Republic but they seem to be very generous people… You’ve put some great outfits together, the last one being my favourite. Will fit everywhere and take you anywhere.
