Viewers tuning into Tuesday’s episode of This Morning were left unimpressed at the show’s fashion segment with TV presenter Lisa Snowdon. Hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby welcomed the 50-year-old to the ITV studio as she updated fans on all the latest fashion trends for spring – including statement shirts, which you can watch in the video above.
Opening up the segment, Lisa said: “So we’re having a little taste of the sunshine today that’s promising to stick around, and I think this is the perfect season to inject some fun, some colour into what we’re wearing. And I think the statement shirt is the perfect way to start your spring wardrobe.”
Model Diane was first up on the runway, showcasing a retro patterned £35.99 blouse from Mango, sported with a pair of dark green trousers from Marks and Spencer worth £49.50. Lisa talked through the outfit, describing it as a “super chic” look that can be worn day or night.
Next up was Gerry, who was flaunting a “pretty in Prairie” white “boho” blouse worth £65, with jeans from Topshop. Lisa then took to a clothing rail to give viewers a close up of some of her best picks – including a light blue frilly collar blouse from New Look and a white floral shirt with see-through sleeves from NeverFullyDressed.
Diane then returned to the catwalk in a brand new outfit consisting of an bright pink oversized striped shirt from Primark that was matched with a snakeskin bag from Debenhams. Lisa expressed how much she loved the look before bringing back Gerry to the studio runway, who had on a floral patterned collared blouse tucked in to a long denim skirt.
However, it would seem that not everyone watching shared the same enthusiasm in the looks as Lisa did. Many fans took to their keyboards to discuss the garments – with some even describing them as “hideous” while others complained at the “expensive” prices.

“Urgh, she looks like she’s wearing a shopping bag! #ThisMorning” @mostlystupid said.
@ScheissShowUK asked: “Statement shirt”. Does ‘statement’ basically just mean ‘expensive’? #thismorning.”
“Looks like a garden trellis #ThisMorning,” @Jo_DoeUK added.
@Rise_and_grind7 quipped: “That blouse looks like decore in a 1980s office #thismorning.”
@Hyther12 put: “A statement collar? Get the little house on the prairie look ladies….. #ThisMorning.”

@Beckie_Miller_ admitted: “wouldn’t even let you bury me in this shower of hideousness #ThisMorning”
@dancingmoose42 added: “Wear some of these and you’d look like Alice from Wonderland… #ThisMorning.”
One viewer was left cringing at Lisa’s choice of bag and shoes, tweeting: “Frumpy big collar… The bag ruins it, oh lod and those nasty shoes…Stripes and snakeskin…#thismorning” while @mrscarter22 posted: “Is that blooming crimplene? Crikey! Hideous!”
@VAS6323 was shocked at the price of one of the blouses, writing: “Hideous… £65 for a blouse? #ThisMorning.” @jayhwarne was also taken aback, tweeting the same thing: “£65 for a blouse!”
@ScheissShowUK also questioned the price: “£65 for a genuinely horrendous ‘statement shirt’ blouse?”
“People are receiving their utilities bills right now and they are showing blouses that are £65” @Dc7073Bloss argued.
