‘Wardrobe essentials’ now include little black dress, skinny jeans and a Guns ’N Roses T-shirt

ALL women should have a little black dress, pencil skirt, all-season blazer and a Guns ’N Roses T-shirt in their wardrobe, fashion magazines have decreed. 

The T-shirts have been declared an essential for every ladies’ wardrobe after three decades of popular wear for everything from walking the dog to Royal Ascot.

Fashion writer Francesca Ryan said: “Whether the classic crucifix-with-original-line-up-skulls design, the entwined flowers and pistols logo or one of the more outré styles, every woman should have one.

“Once a badge of the rock subculture, they’re now a fashion neutral that can be dressed up with jewellery, dressed down with jeans or worn oversized as a dress for an outdoor function.

“And best of all, there’s no need to worry about sniffy men challenging you to name three of their songs, because you know them all. Even if you don’t realise it, you know them all.”

19-year-old Eleanor Shaw said: “The costume dramas of the 22nd century will outfit everyone of our era in a black tee bearing the motif of a skull in a top hat smoking a cigarette, and they’ll be right to.

“Unless they’re still wearing them, of course, which I wouldn’t rule out.”
