Bella Bella!

15 Apr

As you may know I am a massive fan of Collectif – especially the flared Dolores dresses. However, I thought it was about time I tried a skirt before my Dolores collection got out of control!
The skirt I decided to go from was this gorgeous Bella skirt in green. I am a huge fan of fitted pencil skirts, but I thought it would be fun to see how a fishtail style would work on me and my shape. Due to the size of my hips and bum I decided to go for an 18.

It was pretty spot on! I am 5’7 and found that I had to pull the skirt down towards my hips to make the length work for me, plus it was big around my waist and would not sit there. The fabric is fabulous, it was barely creased and is fully lined. I have split many a skirt and dress in my time due to my love of fitted items and my big bum, and so this fishtail style felt perfect on my proportions. The colour fits in well with wardrobe and I think it looks fabulous with the Bravissimo shirt from many seasons ago.  It is versatile and I can see it being perfect for office wear and then dressed up to hit the bars after work. As you can see I teamed mine with a belt but do you expect anything else?

I do struggle to wear skirts as I have such a huge dress collection and I tend to favour them, but I may start to wear them a little more now, especially as I know a great place that does amazing bust friendly tops

So check out Collectif’s amazing skirt selection now, something that is sometimes overlooked by the fabulous dresses but really shouldn’t be!
