Fashion brand full of surprise 2021

Happy new year everyone. I wonder what 2022 will have in store for us? Since the pandemic have you learned to shop online more? Do you prefer it? I know I do. And with that, I want to nominate a fashion brand online that really surprised me in 2021 and I look forward to seeing new collections from this brand over the coming new year.


The brand in question has to Damart. You may remember my first post in late summertime? I’m still wearing those items now and as for the green trousers. I literally live in them!

This is the second campaign that I’ve partnered with Damart and when I was asked to choose some items I didn’t have any problem finding items at all!

Take this leather biker. At an exceptional price of £84.50, I fell in love with the rich chestnut colour that you don’t often see and I liked that it didn’t have shiny hardware. The leather is like butter and far better quality than my other two leather bikers that I own.

It’s certainly going to be worn so much over the coming months. It’s great with dresses, jeans and jeggings. I’ve already worn it a lot. I also like the lapels snap down with the press-studs. No flapping about!

The day to night dress

Worn under the jacket is this gorgeous shirt dress. I love the unusual print and the on-trend colour green. The dress has a pleated skirt and It’s really comfortable with its self-tie belt. I’ve styled it on YouTube with a tan leather belt and this also looks good. I prefer the sleeves rolled up for a less formal look though.

This dress can easily adapt to a nighttime look. I’ve also styled it over the festive season with a gold belt and heels. The mustard tones in the dress work really well together. It would also work with a black evening bag and heels too.

Damart was the fashion brand I chose to wear at Christmas for comfort

Choosing something to wear over the Christmas period I had my heart set on this printed top but it had completely sold out. I opted for the next best thing, a similar style in again, this year’s on-trend green.

Looking on the website, I have to say that the clothing looks dowdy. This is the only downside to this fashion brand. They just need to update it. Take a look at Damart’s Instagram and you can see how the media team have styled and put items together. This is where I start to purr!

The devore material, (the body of the blouse is lined) covered buttons and full puff sleeves are what caught my eye. It’s a really loose-fitting blouse with the smock detailing so I added a gold belt to dress it up and create some extra shape. This came off after my meal I must add! The belt is from the seventies. It was mums. It was a nice surprise that I could still fit into it. Gold shoes finished off my festive look.

The trousers are super comfortable, just like flared leggings. I loved them so much I have them in Black and Navy too. I’m going to pair the navy ones with the chevron print top from the last Damart post. A soft elasticated waistband, a seamed front for smartness and they don’t crease. Really pleased with them.

This years new years eve outfit

Yes. This will be what I’m wearing to see in the new year of 2022. The Covid finally got me. I have to say I’m relieved. I’m actually not suffering too badly either. Not being able to have the vaccine and advice from doctors to be extra careful because of the over-active immune system I have, I’ve been so worried for the past two years about going down with this virus. I almost feel like celebrating this along with the new year. It’s such a relief to get this over and done with.

So I have the cosiest of pyjamas to wear. And trust me these are now the most worn out of the three outfits. They were just what the doctor ordered! Why I haven’t had a pair of cosy winceyette PJ’s in my draw is beyond me!

Happy new year to you all. Here’s to a better 2022!

Keep you and yours safe and well xx

    I’ve made a decision to not buy any clothes, including underwear for the whole of 2022. I now have both sets of wardrobes in the UK now and far too many clothes.Thanks for linking with #pocolo and hope to see you back soon.

      Yes. I can imagine you have quite a few items putting two lifestyles into one Suzanne! xx

    Ilove these outfits Laurie, and what a great price for the leather jacket. I have motos in other colors and prefer over black. These green pieces are stunning on you, a great color. Pjs look very cozy too!
    thank you for linking!

      Thanks Jess. It’s the best jacket I’ve found via price too. So happy with it. xx

    I’d never heard of Damart until you mentioned the brand last year, Laurie. I’m keeping my eye on them, although it is a bit of a pain buying from the UK since Brexit! I love everything you’re wearing here, especially the dress with the boots and leather jacket. Gorgeous!
    So glad that you weren’t hit too badly with Covid, and that you’re recovering well.
    Happy New Year.

      Thanks Suzi. Glad to get that virus out of the way. It’s left me feeling pretty tired is all. I’m so happy with all the items from Damart this past year xx

    I love that leather jacket – what a great colour! A moto jacket will always be a classic I think! 🙂 And that dress is so pretty too. Sorry to hear you have covid, I hope you get over it quickly. I sadly know a couple of people with Covid as we opened up the borders and there are now over 10,000 cases daily. It’s hit them hard so I hope you get a mild case!

    Thanks for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! Hope that the first week of 2022 has been a good one for you 🙂

      Thanks Mica. Considering I haven’t had the vaccine I think I got off quite lightly. Just a bit tired now xx

    I love all of these gorgeous pieces, Laurie! I am sorry to hear that you caught Covid, but I am glad that it hasn’t been too severe for you. Wishing you all the best in the new year, my friend! I am featuring this post in tomorrow’s link up.

    I love hearing about brands that turn themselves round, and reinvent themselves. Hotter Shoes is another one. The leather jacket looks very classy and far more expensive than it is.
    Lovely pyjamas, even though you had to wear them with Covid!
    Thanks for linking,.

      I agree Gail. Now Damart just needs to sort the website for the final push. I’m loving the brand though! xx

    What gorgeous colours Laurie, it is lovely when a brand surprises us!
    Happy new year.

    I just love finding new and different brands like this Laurie. That jacket is something else, and I would wear that dress in a heartbeat!!
    Happy New Year,

      Happy new year Jodie. I’m super happy that I got to discover the Damart brand xx

  12. January 3, 2022 / 1:06 pm

    That’s interesting that their website doesn’t match their instagram. That might deter some shoppers as we often take inspiration from how it looks on someone online. I do love the leather jacket quite a lot and you sure have found things that really match your style.

      I agree with you Mirielle. I hope they change it xx

  13. January 1, 2022 / 6:10 pm

    Can’t believe that leather biker and that divine dress are Damart!
    I was going to say sorry to hear the virus got you, but I’m definitely hearing you on it being a relief in your situation. I’m glad to hear, though, that you haven’t been feeling too sick! Wishing you a happy, virus-free 2022, Laurie! xxx

    Happy New Year to you both. Get well soon. You are so right about the Damart website. The clothes look so different on you and the Damart Instagram page. x
