The collection includes 47 pieces ranging in price between £8 and £50 so the stunning items are all at reasonable prices and there really is something for everyone. There is currently 30% off all tops and dresses so now is the perfect time to shop the collection. The collaboration features casual pieces such as sweaters and oversized t-shirts as well as gorgeous dresses which are perfect for a winter evening.
" The iconic number and flame graphic transform these casual tees into recognisable, statement pieces."
The oversized t-shirts are ideal for a more casual look, offering both long-length and a cropped-cut. The iconic number and flame graphic transform these casual tees into recognisable, statement pieces. There is an abundance of colour-ways, from versatile neutrals such as black and white to neon orange and green which will be sure to add a pop of vibrancy to any look. This is not exclusive to t-shirts as the same concept is used for sweatshirts, which are perfect as the winter months are fast approaching. If these bold pieces aren’t your style, there are more simplistic designs with the slogan “minimalist” across both the front and sleeve of cropped sweatshirts which offer an alternative that will cater to Lipscombe’s diverse audience. The “minimalist” theme is carried across a variety of pieces including joggers and buckle strap tops and dresses which allow you to create an your own co-ord for “every day”.
"If you are seeking a dramatic look, the monochrome grey snake print midaxi dress is everything you need."
Now lets talk about the dresses! My personal favourite is the faux leather milkmaid hook and eye dress which is very on trend and a highly versatile piece which could be dressed up with strappy heals for a christmas party or layered for an edgy everyday look. This faux leather range also includes a milkmaid crop top as well as utility shorts giving shoppers a variety of options that will cater for their looks. If you are seeking a dramatic look, the monochrome grey snake print midaxi dress is everything you need. Paired with statement jewellery, this glamorous piece is ideal for any formal occasion. For a more casual look, buyers can opt for a slinky co-ord or even a high neck mesh bodysuit with the same iconic monochrome snake print. The champagne bust cup dress is perfect for the party girls out there, with a satin finish this figure hugging piece is truly beautiful for a night out on the toon.
The collection has faced backlash online for its lack of sizing inclusively, with some of the items only stocking sizes 6-14. Some have labelled this “disappointing” as it doesn’t cater for a large proportion of Lipscombe’s audience. Although, there appears to be an attempt to include a bigger range of sizing with some pieces stocking sizes 4-28. Lipscombe has seemingly hit back at this criticism, liking an array of comments that elude to her having no involvement in what sizing Missguided will be stocking.
Ultimately, this collection is everything that could have been expected from Lipscombe, albeit you are within the small scope of sizes for the more glamorous pieces. Since the initial launch, Missguided have stocked a bigger range of sizes for some of the pieces due to demand and backlash, but this isn’t across the entire collection. Considering this is her first major fashion project, the collab is very impressive and definitely representative of her unique sense of style.
