Take 10 Challenge 21: Debenhams

Take10 has had a long and unplanned hiatus, but we're back. After a couple of line up changes, we're super excited to welcome Olivia and Fritha to the gang. Can't wait to do more challenges with you guys!

This month's sponsor is Debenhams, once again, and this time we picked something from the H! by Henry Holland collection. I have a few pieces from previous H! by Henry Holland collections and still love them, so I was looking forward to trying something from the new collection out.

I actually quite liked the skirt, especially since it was something I wouldn't have picked out myself (one of the major perks of blogging). I like how the maxi part of the skirt is sheer, but there's a shorter polka dot skirt under it, and it looks cool peeking out from below. I never fully embraced the maxi trend, so I decided to do something different, and pinned the front so that it became a mini/maxi (mixi?) skirt instead, which I was much more comfortable it. Oh, and a bit of spiked Sam Edelman always adds some glam to a look.

It's a pretty skirt and was a lot of fun to style. I think I need to incorporate more sheer in my life!

And here's how everyone else styles their piece. There's an even split as we decided on two different pieces: the sheer skirt, and a lovely kite printed dress.

Do you prefer the dress or the skirt? How would you style each piece?

Although I usually love the brightest and most colourful clothes, I think I like the skirt best, it looks really unusual. I think I would wear it with a strappy black top and some statement jewellery (when the weather warms up). I love the way that you have styled it, especially the amazing shoes!

The maxi like skirt is pretty! The polka dotted skirt peeking from beneath is so adorable! Love it!

I love this skirt, I keep seeing maxi skirts around but this one is a little different with the polka dots. I have a couple of H by Henry Holland pieces and really like the range. x

Nice + simple outfit, the skit really takes the stage! I adore the yellow dress.. I'd wear it with a navy belt and cardigan :)

I love how you styled this skirt, Sherin! Shortening the front was a great idea and it works perfectly on you! Plus, those heels are amazing!
