Todays outfit focuses on the technique of colorblocking. For those who are unfamiliar with what colorblocking is; it is the technique of piecing together different colored clothing pieces. This is a trend I believe can be reciprocated in all seasons not just the summer. Colorblocking is usually done using really BOLD, VIBRANT, colors as you will see in my outfit below.
Why it works:
The pink blouse and coral skirt are in the same color family with similar hues. The color tones allow for the pieces to work cohesively and not fight each other.
Why it fits:
In the past, H&M carried plus size clothing however, I havent seen the line in any H&M I've been to in over 2 years. The top is from the black label sub-label of H&M and is a size 12-the largest size it goes up to. I AM NOT typically a H&M size 12 however because the shirt is meant to be worn loosely and somewhat baggy, I am able to fit it like a regular button down. The only downside is I should have worn a different bra. That would have eliminated the gaps between the buttons :/
The skirt (sz large) has an elastic waist which, in my opinion, allows a size xl to a 2x the ability to wear it. Because it is pleated and flowy, it doesnt cling to the thigh or waist.
The skirt is pleated lightweight skirt purchased from H&M for $17.95
The Blouse also from H&M for $12.95
The Cognac colored leather and fabric belt from H&M for $5.95
I decided to throw in a brightly colored turquoise statement necklace for contrast along with a matching turquoise ring.
