Just a quick review of the Playboy collection at Missguided! My person Opinion.
From what I can see the collection is mainly lounge wear, very kim Kardashian esc and Instagram model. These items in the collection I can imagine would look cute if you wear relaxing with your partner or travelling and I think will appeal to a larger audience.
The main problem I have with the collection is the playboy logo splashed over all the items. In my opinion it makes the clothes less wearable for everyday and honestly quite trashy.
I just can’t see many other people wearing these items other than Paris Hilton in the early 2000s. For example the dress below, the fabric looks poor even on the website! However for £50 this dress should look better.
Without being all negative, here are a few of my favourite pieces from the collection, which I think would look cute and make you feel sexy.
I think this hoodie is cute.
However £22 is a lot for a cropped hoodie and personally the matching sweatpants are too much for me.
For £15 this crop top is cute.
The collection ranges from size 4 to 24 however not in all items, which isn’t the most inclusive collection for all body sizes at all and I still do not understand why brands do not include all sizes in their clothing! Especially as the average size of women in the UK is a 14 in the first place.
The collection basically consists of hoodies with cycling shorts, sweat pants, cropped hoodies and tops. A few short dresses and a chain mail top. The colours are nude, black and white.
I think you can find everything this collection has too offer others stores like Pretty Little Thing and they have been doing these pieces for a while and in more colours, sizes and cheaper!
Overall, not innovative but I suppose it does fit in with the playboy brand and will appeal to a certain type of person. Plus the items will naturally be more expensive due to the brand.
The jewellery collection will be landing on the 28th.
