Nothing is wrong with TARDIS t-shirts. I own more than a few of them. But in addition to my casual geek apparel, I like to have dressier and more subtle options. Her Universe has been putting all sorts of those options on the table, and their new Doctor Who collection hits all the right chic notes. This plaid forward line (there are three different custom TARDIS themed plaids in this release) brings lots of TARDIS blue into cozy cardigans, coats, blouses, and leggings. The overall aesthetic is inspired by 1950s British lifestyle.
I can already tell I want to live in the cardigan pictured above. The Police Box wrap is the only indication it’s a Who design, and I like keeping it under the radar sometimes. It would pair well with leggings and jeans and just looking at it makes me want to grab a cup of tea and curl up in a comfy chair.
The plaid is more of an accent in other pieces, like the necktie on the white blouse in the above photo. The top works as styled, with a Doctor Who skirt from the line, but the cut would look fantastic with any ol’ pencil skirt or slacks.
Take the TARDIS to the gallery below to see more photos from the collection. When you’re ready to shop or add items to your wish list, you can get purchase some of the designs at Hot Topic and Torrid now and the line will be available directly from Her Universe soon.
