Separates

29 Jul

I pretty much live in dresses, come rain or shine, but sometimes it’s good to rock separates.

This size 18 New Look Inspire Aztec print skirt is just my style. Fitted, jersey, knee length and patterned.

I am 5’7 with a dislike of my knees, and the length is spot on for me. My bum falls slightly outside the 18 size range and so I really use that stretch, but it doesn’t distort the pattern or look too tight.

Sadly the Harry Potter shirt sold out in SECONDS! But I feel sure that Etsy could provide for you if you are in love with the idea of Hogwarts boobies.

Trousers are tricky creatures for me. I can squidge into smaller sizes in dresses and skirts and use belts to make them work, but my ginormous bottom and robust thighs do not play well with trousers. They do however, adore a bit of that magical substance known as bengaline…

These New Look bengaline trousers are incredible!

I wish I had gone for an 18 not a 20, as these bad boys have some serious stretch! They are a fab length on me as for me, skinny trousers do need to hit that sweet ankle spot to really work.

I am not sold on the zip feature as I think it draws the eye to my triplet bearing hips, but that’s the only thing that lets the trousers down. Fingers crossed that they restock them asap!

What is your go to shop for great separates?
