The Gillian Anderson Inspired Silk Shirt Edit


The Fall returned to our screens this autumn for a third series and whilst we loved the thrilling storylines and the handsome serial killer, one thing stood out to us - Gillian Anderson's fabulous silk shirt collection.

The silk shirt symbolises an iconic feminine piece and in The Fall it mirrors Gillian's character of DCI Gibson. It's a power blouse. She's a woman on a mission and her wardrobe reflects her work ethic, unapologetic and determined.

If you're inspired to get your hands on a power blouse, then look no further than our edit of the best silk shirts available right now. If you really want to pay homage to DCI Gibson pair it with a pencil skirt and high heels to complete the look.
