A Splash of Colour

It's always a good sign when brands branch out and create a plus size line, but it really can go one of two ways. Thankfully, Missguided have gone the right way with their very first plus size collection from last year which had many plus size babes, including me, with a extensive list of items in their virtual shopping bag. I ordered this fab two-piece. 
Crop Top: Missguided^
Skirt: Missguided
Boots: Simply Be^
Now, the problem with being pixie height is that crop tops are very rarely that. I don't have a long body and thus, crop tops are often mid torso on me. This was the case with Missguided's crop top but I didn't let that deter me as I still think the look works with me tucking the top into the skirt. It gives the illusion of a dress and still looks great with the chunky boots I chose to finish the look off with. Missguided's sizing is very generous and I could have easily sized downed, particularly with the skirt, and being 95% Polyester make both items very stretchy and accommodating. 

I love the literal splashes of colour on this two-piece, and the colours work so well with my skin tone and gives a really good balance. I've worn these pieces in various versions as single items which goes to show that despite the array of colours, they still work incredibly well on their own. I love that the top has sleeves long enough not to need a cardigan and with it being spring, this will look great with so many of my bright and colourful skirts. 
It's clear that Missguided are on the right track and creating plus size collections that are fashion forward, affordable and versatile. Long may it continue. 

'til next time!

Love and hugs,

  1. I always forget about places like Missguided. The colours look amazing on you!

    1. I know what you mean. There is slowly but surely an increase of brands expanding to plus size items. I really love the Missguided range and there are a few items on sale now. :) x

  2. I love this on you, you're right the colours are so great and I like that they can be picked out and matched with other items. Very versatile. I actually like the illusion of a dress rather than a 2 piece,but then I'm not much of a crop top fan.

    1. Thank you! I love the colours too and these items are so great for any time of the years with mixing in other things. I think the skirt will get a lot of use as the temperature heats up. :) x

  3. Looks fantastic on you! The colours are great for transitioning and love the length of the skirt!

    1. Thank you! Yes, the skirt is a gem and Missguided really did well with their first plus size collection. I hope there is another one on the pipeline soon. :) xx
