OOTD: ’70s Suede

Cardigan – Primark  //  Top – Boohoo  //  Necklace – ASOS  //  Belt – ASOS  //  Skirt – New Look  //  Bag – ASOS  //  Tights – New Look  //  Shoes – New Look
When I tweeted about this faux suede skater skirt last week, opinion was pretty divided but after a couple of days weighing it up I knew I’d end up regretting it if I didn’t snap it up. A couple of people suggested I wait until after the Summer since it’s more of an Autumn/Winter piece, but unusual items like this come up so rarely in plus sizes – especially on the high street – that I just couldn’t risk it.
I went for a size 20 since I was pretty worried about the lack of stretch in the “suede”, but I could have easily sized down to an 18 without any problems.

With the skirt being such a statement (I love the ’70s vibe it gives off) I’ve been mainly pairing it with all black outfits to keep it looking sleek. It’s definitely a versatile piece & I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of it (even if it means having to crack out the ironing board every so often to keep it looking its best).
