I am a long-time fan of bamboo clothing. I love its luxurious feel, its lovely drape, and the way it holds it shape and softness after hundreds of washes!
I already have quite a few basic tops and one pair of 3/4 length leggings that I wear on high rotation throughout the year.
A few months ago, I tested out some beautiful, light-weight knitwear from Bamboo Body and utterly fell in love with their range. This new season, Bamboo Body have launched a stack of new styles and have re-stocked a lot of their best sellers too.
I also have a special 15% off discount code for all my readers – which lasts all Spring (till the end of November)! Scroll down to the end for details.
Today I’m showing off some pieces that – ordinarily – I wouldn’t have chosen. To my surprise, I really adored them and am so happy that they are part of my wardrobe now!
First up: Bamboo Pocket Pants
Being a skinny jeans lover, I never took well to wearing wide leg pants, palazzo pants or drop-crotch pants . Heck I don’t even wear tracksuit pants out of the house. But these bamboo pants are soft, relaxed, breathable and so comfortable to wear!
I love that you can adjust the height of them and they fall so nicely. When they are full length, they swish and sway so elegantly and kind of elongate my legs. I really like them!
I can’t wait to wear them in warmer weather with a little white lace camisole and flat tan sandals.
I picked out this Taylor turtleneck top and I thought it would be good to layer under jackets or knits. They are!
But I have ALSO been wearing it on its own, with a skirt or jeans. I really like it because it looks elegant, stylish and a bit different to all the other tops that I wear. It’s nice to have a change.
Plus it feels absolutely lovely next to my skin and it’s actually rated to be SPF50.
This Grey Ruched Skirt is such a simple and lovely piece. I think it suits me quite well.
It has a modest length, the ruching is nice, it is soft and comfortable, not too tight, a versatile style, and it also comes in black, grey stripes, tangerine.
I’ll be wearing this a lot through the warmer weather.
This Navy Gemma Dress is incredibly soft, comfortable and drapes very nicely. But I thought it was a bit too long and loose for me, even though the dress was a XS.
So I hitched up the waist, with the matching belt, and wore it as a short dress. I thought it looked much better on me and it suited my style more.
70’s fashion styles are very popular this season, so the classic A-line shape is very in vogue. It looks a bit like a playsuit, I like it!
Lastly, I can’t go past good old basics for the new season.
The Bamboo Scoop Singlet comes in khaki, grey, grey marle, black, white, navy and taupe. They are such good quality singlets, soft, comfortable, not hard, stiff or scratchy, doesn’t have a weird sheen to it (as most brands tend to have).
The fabric is a blend of organic bamboo, organic cotton and a bit of spandex for that extra stretch. They are the best!
These Soft Bamboo Leggings are also the best everyday leggings ever! They are great for layering in cold weather, wearing them with boots, wearing for light activity, or just wearing them around the house. I’m wearing them right now, with a t-shirt, a light knit cardigan and sneakers!
