The River Island Polka Dot Shirt is an item that was only featured for a couple of seconds, but it’s still a very cute shirt that has found its way into my everyday wardrobe. This is probably an item that most Clara cosplayers only go after if they either find it by accident or have already collected most of the main outfits. The second was the case for me, but it really is an item I don’t wanna miss in my wardrobe.
The shirt can be found on all the platforms and is quite common and easy to find within a few weeks. The price is also very agreeable in most cases, starting at approx £5.
The fabric of the shirt is really, really light which makes it perfect for a nice, warm day or a cooler day with a cardigan on top and I’ve worn it to the office more times than I’ve actually worn it for cosplay reasons. However, if synthetic fibres aren’t your thing, you may not love the shirt so very much. It is made from 100% polyester. I sized up when I bought the shirt and I don’t regret the decision because even though it’s very loose overall, the shoulders are still a bit tight. So if you have regularly sized to broader shoulders, sizing up is the better option here. The shirt closes with a small button on the back of the neck.
This is an easy to come by teacher!Clara item that is very romantic and cute and fits quite nicely into the office wear section of any wardrobe. Also, the scene can easily be recreated with a desk, a pen and some papers.
