Taking Shape - How to wear

I was gifted two items from Taking shape to review. As explained the brand is a new brand from Australia taking the UK by storm. With 13 stores in the UK already with more in the pipeline Taking shape are a new fresh concept to the UK high street.

I chose these items as I felt they were more me and more adaptable to style. 

This skirt is a XL, which by the sizing guide is roughly a size 22. It's a bit bit around the waist as I size in at a size 18 (smallest part of me). I LOVE this skirt. The length, the material, the fit and everything else about it is amazing. I wore it to the press day with a grey boyfriend top and my chunky boots. It's just so easy to wear smart, casual and glam. The zipper is workable and has no material behind, so if you're feeling cheeky and want to bare some leg just undo it. I honestly can not find any fault with this item and would be happy to pay £50 for it. The attention to detail and quality is amazing.


This dress is supposed to be layered but me being me would honestly wear this without anything underneath. The dress sent is a size 20. The length of the thick jersey cuts halfway down the thigh and the sheer fabric sits below the knee. I styled this dress in a punky way which I think suits the dress. I simply love everything about it, same as the skirt. It's easy to wear, I love the fit, detailing and the quality. I know the styling probably doesn't suit the brand but I think it suits me to a T. 

Has anyone else purchased from Taking Shape or visited a store? I'm hoping to visit the Kingston branch soon.
