The Great British Bake Off. Say no more. The whole country has gone multi-seed mental for Mary Berry and her macaroon infused innuendos- and even for old pervy Paul. Now in its fourth series, the BBC2 show has become a national phenomenon and golden crusted treasure; staying in is the new going out, for baking has overtaken twirking as our favourite pastime. (Mary over Miley any day of the week, not just on a Tuesday.)
And what could you possibly wear to sit down and gorge yourself on a selection of scones, pastries and pies… a tea dress of course! Hardened up with a graphic print and black biker boots, the look has come a long way since Kate Nash, circa 2007. Less pastle, more vibrant and not just for the indie Cindy’s with the Lego haircut- for now we can all sling over a battered leather jacket and pop in a pair of chunky gold hoops without being judged- baked or not.
So sit back, put the kettle on, turn off the oven and let the brutal comments from the judges on the remaining contestants, apple strudel commence. X Factor who?
