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^
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,
