hope and harvest yolo skirt plus size fashion-1

This pretty darn impressive skirt has been hanging over the back of my office chair for weeks now. Taunting me. Mr Suger hasn’t been around to grab any photos and I wanted to be sure to do it justice so I’ve been gazing longingly at it, unworn and lonely. It’s time finally came! Paired with simple black to let the subtle pattern and colour of the skirt standout, I was all set for some pics.

And boy oh boy. He nailed it. But let’s not tell him, that dude’s head is the size of a house from all the blog photo compliments he has been getting lately. Lucky he’s cute, even with a giant head. These pics perfectly capture the almost letterpress pattern of the material and the richness of the maroon of the skirt. Perfect.

Now, I bet you’re curious about the skirt itself. Well, it’s looong. Really it is. It’s midi length on me and I’m wearing it just below my natural waistline {about an inch and a half below the belt}. It’s the sort of a pencil skirt that you could wear to work with a blouse just as easily as you could wear it with a bodysuit out on the town. Though the straight line of it gives me one heck of a belly line so that might not be an option for everyone. I’m thinking a leather peplum top would work too.

But you came because you want to win one, right? Well, hop to it. The widget is at the end of the post. Good luck!

    I have a really cute peplum top with leather-look embellishments, and it would look *killer* with this skirt. I love wearing jewel tones in clothing, like maroon, emerald, nice and deep in tone, but still colourful. It’s the best for winter, to stop from feeling drab and dumpy.

    Loving the texture on this skirt, and you look great, as always.

    Stunning! I love love love the YOLO skirt! The pattern, texture, fabric, style, everything! Pretty darn impressive skirt, which looks mighty darn impressive on you Melissa! Gorgeous photos and how kind of the sunset to step up for you!
    I’m thinking YOLO will be trans-seasonal – winter in my Sonsee Swarovski bow tights with ankle boots, Hope & Harvest peplum top and cashmere scarf…. or a simple black T underneath a cropped jacket. Warmer months will rock the YOLO with strappy sandals and white sleeveless top, for cooler nights a H&H kimono jacket belted at the waist would be stunning. The possibilities are endless! Ok, I’m off to stare at it and drool a bit more! Thanks gals xx

    I must have this. It’s that simple. I. MUST. HAVE. THIS. SKIRT.

  • Mahina Hathaway

    Ugh that skirt is amazing! I love midi length skirts. They suit me and I feel like a million bucks in them. My wedding dress was midi length and pencil shaped. I wear these kinds of skirts to work, match ’em with a killer blazer and pretty heels and I can conquer the world. Or day time, with flats and a tshirt… Now I am mentally going through my wardrobe matching this skirt to what I have already! It would be so great to break the black that I tend to use as my safety colour.

  • Siggy

    The skirt looks so lovely. great look!

  • H2289

    This skirt is a classic all rounder- stockings and ankle boots in winter or bare legs and wedges/heels in summer. Not that I need anymore clothes haha

  • Becc

    This skirt is divine! I’d wear it with a black wrap top and black knit cardi.

  • Suger, you look stunning in this outfit.
    I would wear it with black or white fitted shirt tucked in, and the skirt pulled up really high.

  • Kim Donaldson

    I love the skirt and would team it with my black wet look peplum top and a killer statement necklace and ankle boots.

  • murphy scanlon

    Oh gosh. I don’t usually enter competitions – but I NEED this skirt in my life. If I were fortunate enough to get my mitts on it – I think I’d go for my black and pleather peplum & some chunky wedges. I might even venture into some *GASP* gold jewellery! Oh man. I’m styling it over and over in my head and mentally buying sooo many accessories. I definitely think the detail calls for something simple but edgy to the skirt shiiiine!

  • Mel Watson

    I would style this with a chambray shirt (front tucked), my new Erstwilder Julpar the Jaguar necklace and possibly my tan wedges. =)

  • Megan Gerathy

    I loooooove this colour and cut for a skirt. The imprinted pattern is such a nice touch. For a nervous pattern clasher like myself I’m picturing this paired with floral or stripe. It is fab, gotta love me some Hope & Harvest.

  • Ohhh that skirt is so pretty! I love the cut on you Suger 🙂

    I’d style it with my sheer black bodysuit from Chubby Cartwheels – alllll the sexiness in one!

  • Fiona Winckens

    I would not usually wear this colour but I just adore this skirt with the subtle simplicity of this pattern and the clean line of the skirt. I would style with a peplum top or my Harlow gothic glamor shirt. Love it!

  • Emma Hinchliff

    You should tell hubby and watch his head explode hehe.

    I love this skirt to death! I have the perfect black peplum top to pair this with!

  • Ashley Olund

    Gorgeous color! I would probably pair this with my wedge booties.

  • This silhouette on you is KILLA. 🙂

    Love this look – I will like to know more about the top and belt?

  • Karen Crawford

    Def love it for Winter with high boots and a black roll neck jumper.

  • Bec

    OOh I would wear this skirt with my tall tan boots, black and white leopard print shirt and maybe black crochet poncho! 🙂 x

  • Rachel Bos

    Love this skirt, so simple, but not at the same time :). I’d wear this with my black peep toe wedges, and my black box pleat peplum.

  • Denise McEvoy

    It’s Red! And I love the pattern, great to see it paired with my other favourite: Black!

  • Joanne Emery

    knee high black wedge boots, longline white boyfriend shirt and big hoop earrings!

    Love the colour – it’s a deeper rust red which works better for my pale skin tone! Love the outfit xx

  • Tania Male

    as the moment its cold, so these boots are made for just about everything!!! yep, black top and black boots deserve some colour!

  • I’d go for a monochrome in red look: blousey burgundy chiffon top tucked into the Yolo skirt, and suede burgundy wedges. Delicate pewter chain harness over the top.


  • Penelope_Cherry

    Oh that colour is divine. So many ways to wear it popping into my head.
