I popped into Westfield Stratford last week and happened upon the Missguided store there and of course ventured in for a good old browse. I spotted so many bits I loved and despite the fact that the some of the stock is not really my cup of tea (as I'm a bit past wearing bodycon) there were plenty of items that caught my eye. I suspect many people think Missguided is not for them, especially if they fall in the thirty plus bracket, but I'm here to tell you there are lots of gorgeous items you might be missing out on. When I got home I headed straight online and ordered a whole heap of stuff and I thought I'd share my favourite five items that I think will prove that anyone can wear Missguided after 30!
This Floral Frill detail blouse is so so pretty. Now I bought mine from the tall range as so far I can't spot it in the normal range (it also comes in plus size and petite too!) but that doesn't bother me as the fit was fine to be honest. I sized up to a 12 just so it was looser too. It does have a pretty plunging neckline which won't be for everyone but you can always add a vest under, either nude or a contrasting colour. The main selling point of this blouse is the sleeves! That is some pretty gorgeous frill and tie detailing and I also love the print so much. This blouse will most definitely be your go to Spring piece, perfect with denim.
I really like Missguided denim. I think once you have your size sussed they tend to come up very similar across styles and they are a good thick denim and worth the money I believe. I wear a size 10. These Floral Embroidered High Rise jeans are gorgeous, not only do they fit well, they are a great thick denim with the prettiest blue embroidery. Love the roll up detail too, these jeans will be so easy to wear with trainers and sandals (come some proper sunshine).
This Blue striped tie shirt is working all sorts of Spring trends and I love it. Stripes - Check, Tie front - Check!! This is one gorgeous shirt and one of my most favourite items from the five. It comes up a little bit large so maybe size down depending upon the fit you could like although of course the tie front does nip it in! Love the casual vibe of the blue stripe but the tie just makes this shirt standout. Tie it in a bow like me or just knotted and loose - your choice. I've also linked a couple of other shirts that almost made it into my online basket.
This Missguided striped bardot jumpsuit is all kinds of gorgeous. Now ok its not the item of the five that you'll get the most wear out of day to day, but LOOK HOW PRETTY IT IS!!! I love the frill, the stripes and the culotte trouser shape of this jumpsuit. This one is a bargain too at £28 but its selling out fast so you better be quick for this beauty. Wear it with trainers like me for a full on Spring casual look.
I LOVE a good pair of culottes, I must own at least 10 pairs now but I am sooo happy to have added this pair of Missguided Grey culottes to my collection. Smart enough for the office but also lightweight enough to be causal these culottes are a bargain buy too at only £22. I've styled mine up quite casual but I also think they would look gorgeous with a shirt for a much smarter look. They fit like a dream too, I chose a size 10 and they were perfect!
So that's my five items that prove you can wear Missguided after 30! Let me know which is your fave and of course your thoughts on shopping at Missguided and indeed other stores after 30 as I'd love to know your opinions??
