Styling My 'Must Have' Pieces From Great Plains + WIWT

Top Picks


Morning ladies today I wanted to take a look at Great Plains latest drop as there's some real timeless beauties.  You may recall that I featured their earlier collection for the season here but there's already been a new release to add to the temptation!

I've picked my top 10 pieces from the new collection above but today I thought it would also be fun if I shared with you how I'd style each item, to help give you a little bit of inspiration & some food for thought for the coming months.

Now I've been lucky enough to have been allowed to pick a couple of pieces & after much consideration I decided to go with their Timed Out Tencel Culottes & Batwing Sleeve Oversized Shirt.  Two timeless 'must have' pieces that will go with so many pieces in my wardrobe.  The culottes in particular remind me of a similar pair that I bought in black last year that I found really useful last summer.  Of course you never know until you try culottes on if they're going to be the right length & from looking at the picture online they did appear a little on the short side but luckily when they arrived they're perfect & not too wide either.  In terms of sizing I'd say they're true to size & have gone for my normal size 8.  

As for the shirt who can resist a stylish silk shirt & I just love the batwing sleeves on this, giving that extra detailing I have such a weakness for.  Plus being oversized it's perfect for creating a relaxed vibe.  And the best bit is the culottes & shirt are a perfect colour match so idea for giving the illusion of a jumpsuit as much as wearing separately.  Imagine the shirt teamed with jeans & heels for a meal out.  Or the culottes paired with a simple breton/white tee, trainers & denim jacket for a casual everyday look not to mention how I've styled it below with a biker.  Like I say lots of possibilities, which makes both these items worth investing in as cost per wear they'll end up owing you nothing & like I mentioned earlier timeless so will never date.

Here's how I've styled the culottes & shirt for their first outing.

So ladies are you loving Great Plains as much as me?  Perhaps it's somewhere you regularly click through to see what's new in & you've already got your eye on a few pieces.  If so I'd love to hear what's tempting you to 'click that button' or maybe it's a brand you've never really paid that much attention to.  If so believe me their SS17 collection is definitely worth taking a peek.

Enjoy your Sunday ladies & as always I'll see you in the morning.
