Can’t help myself when I see a match between two prints. And I do see this often.
It can be a match on the colors, on the patterns, anything really. It is kind of subjective, an intuition I’d say. But to mix prints is more like a feeling and a state of mind than a planned or ruled action. So, let your imagination guide you in the task of mixing prints in your wardrobe and play around.
The whole point when dressing up is to have fun and to follow your mood. So, just go with the flow and start matching up and dressing up.
Here I am wearing Lindex Pencil skirt from their Holly & Whyte line. Recentlly Lindex added larger sizes to this specific line (they already have the Generous plus size line) and are planning to soon add larger sizes to all their collections. How great?
This is indeed a major step towards a real democratization of fashion. Not only in the speech as many brands do, but a real action, increasing the sizes and including more people in their shops. It does make me happy.
I paired the skirt with a plain white V-neck tee and a gorgeous Kimono from River Island Plus Size RI PLUS – their plus size collections are classy, colorful and very well made with affordable prices. I have posted here other looks from RI Plus – this beautiful long dress and this amazing occasion dress.

I have noticed that mid skirts can be sort of polemic in the plus size wardrobe. Some people appear to think to be looking bigger when wearing the skirt model. Ok, I can see where it comes from, but, then again, what increases volume is a diet not clothes, right? hehehe. Also, who would not pick a favorite piece for being afraid of looking bigger or something?
Real empowerment is to feel entitled to wear what you like and better suits you, according to your standards, this is key!
Here you can see two of my favorite looks wearing midi skirt. A retro look here and a funky modern look here.
The skirt in the picture is from H&M’s regular collection. It is important to keep eyes open for other collections and not only look for coool stuff in the plus size areas. As we well know, the coolest stuff are unfortunately not there all the time.
But mostly, whats really important is to be comfortable wearing what you choose. And to choose carefully when it comes to a more conscious consumption in fashion. I mean, all the time we are exposed to shopping inputs, like you may be now with my post. The difference is that the idea here is to present an outfit a bit more out of the box, making new usages for old pieces, like the layering collar top I have over the lurex top. It’s been here and used a lot but I preffer it as an overall than inside another top.
Anyways, message is: keep your eyes open, buy conciously and wear what you like and how you like.
