An OOTD From The Archives: I'm Blue...

23 July 2017

Playsuit - Zara (this year's version here)
Handbag - Whistles
Shoes - Next
Sunglasses - Ray-Ban

So as you may be aware, I am so behind on my blog's content that these pictures were actually taken last year... but as Zara have brought out an update to this playsuit this season (with long, flared sleeves), I thought I'd dig this content out of my archives. 

In the last year or so I have found myself reaching for looser and baggier silhouettes, and this cotton poplin playsuit is no exception. Some 'fashion rules' dictate that you have to dress to to your body shape, if it's not 'flattering' we are made to believe that we shouldn't reach for it. For years I thought baggy clothes were no good, that I needed something that would cinch me in at the waist to prove I had one. However, fashion trends such as the move away from skinny jeans to straight leg and Mom jeans (and Zara in general), have allowed me to explore bigger shapes that don't necessarily 'flatter' my body shape.

But although this playsuit isn't the most 'flattering' of shapes I love it. With the skirt of it starting at the chest and flaring it out, I quite like how it hides parts of my body and can make my legs appear smaller than they are. The cut out detailing on the back is another favourite of mine, along with with gorgeous pale blue shade.

With this being quite a statement piece, I have paired this with some trusty simple staples like my Whistles handbag and my blue Ray-Ban Clubmasters. Now I just need the really warm weather to return to the UK (or alternatively a holiday), to wear this again.

What do you think to this outfit? Do you always dress for your body shape or do you like loose silhouettes too?
