Spring/Summer Fashion with Fashion World **REVIEW**

**Advertisement Feature**

Spring is finally here and that means one thing... time to add some new bits to my wardrobe, ready for the warmer weather that is hopefully on its way! So when Fashion World recently got in touch to ask if I would like to pick some pieces for the new season I couldn't wait to find some new pieces. 

If you haven't heard of Fashion World before they are an online store selling a huge range of clothing designed to offer the best fit at the best value, they also specialise in plus size womenswear too! 

I was able to put together three different almost complete outfits for around £100 which I think is pretty impressive. I went for a going out look, a daytime look and of course some cosy pyjamas, I even managed to get a pair of shoes in with that £100! Keep reading to see the outfits I put together... 

My first outfit was this summer going out look. I rarely wear bright colours, often sticking to blacks or greys but this year I am determined to inject some colour into my wardrobe and this beautiful ochre colour wrap front dress. I paired it with my trusty black leggings and some sandals for a chilled out summer evening vibe. 

I absolutely love this dress, which shocked even me given the bright colour! It just feels so good on and fits really well. It skims over the bits of my body I would rather hide and fits in all the places it should. The wrap front is a lovely touch and I think makes me waist appear smaller by pulling it in and around. Of course every mum needs several pairs of black leggings in her wardrobe, they are my go to staple for every day wear. However I think also pair really nicely with this dress and lets the bright ochre colour really stand out. They are also high waisted providing great coverage and holding everything in. 

These are the items I purchased to create this look - 

The next look I created was a day to day look that I could run around with the kids in at the park, or enjoy a nice lunch out with my husband in. I seem to spend a lot of time running around after the kids, playing mums taxi and need to be wearing something that is versatile for any occasion but also comfortable and this outfit ticked all of those boxes. 

The outfit consists of these high waisted shaper jeggings and a black wrap around skater dress, I then paired the outfit with a pair of black lace up pumps for a smart but casual finish. As I mentioned above the outfit is really comfy to wear but I think still looks great too. I usually always live in leggings as I can never seem to find a pair of jeans that fit right, but these jeggings which are a mix between jeans and leggings are a great fit! They are made from a super stretch denim fabric that fits and shapes your body perfectly, there are also several elasticated inserts along the waistband meaning the jeggings can bend, stretch and shape with you as you move around ensuring a comfortable fit. 

The dress features a "mock" wrap front and gold round buttons down one side which makes a lovely extra detail on this black dress. It is a little shorter than portrayed on the website, on the website it is shown as being worn as a dress with no bottoms however you would definitely be flashing more than most would be comfortable if you did that! It does however make it perfect to wear with jeans/jeggings/leggings. 

To finish off my outfit I teamed my look with some simple black lace up pumps which look great and are practical too! They are super easy to slip on and off with ease and felt really comfy when chasing after the kids or being on my feet all day, which definitely gets a thumbs up from me. 

Here are the items I used to create this look -  

- Ellis lace up pumps (Wide Fit) - RRP £16.00

Finally I just had to put some pyjamas in my bag, after all as soon as I get home my pyjamas are usually straight on! There were so many choices on the Fashion World website it was so hard to choose but I finally settled on this set, it consists of a longline t-shirt style top and some super stretchy crop leggings. 

I can confirm this pyjama set is super comfy and perfect for cosying up on the sofa on an evening or snuggling down to sleep. The crop leggings feel perfect for warmer weather as the material feels quite thin and breathable without being see through at all. The top is a lovely fit, as a bigger chested woman I often find pyjama tops come up really short and tight around the chest area making them really uncomfortable. But these longline tops are perfect for exactly that and offer good coverage, fit and comfort which is a must for nightwear. The leggings are also a great fit, they stretch enough to be comfortable but not so much that they feel baggy. They also come up pretty high too offering that extra bit of coverage when laying in bed.

This is the pyjama set I am wearing above -

- Perfect Secrets super value crop legging set - RRP £10

In total my three outfits came in at £103.25 and I am so pleased with all of my items, in fact for the first time in absolutely ages when ordering clothes online I dont have to send anything back! It all fits great, feels great and for great value too.

Which is your favourite look from above?
