I'm size 16 & my Matalan haul left me with mixed opinions – but fashion fans are obsessed with a £27 co-ord I picked up | The Sun

A MIDSIZE fashion fan shared her Matalan clothing haul online – but was left with mixed opinions.

Leah Jane, who is a size 16, ordered a selection of spring/summer clothes from the her local Matalan store in preparation for the warmer weather.

First up, she slips into a 'red frill sleeveless top' which retails at £12.50 and coordinating £15 'red floral midi skirt.'

The sleeveless blouse is trimmed with flouncy frills and a high neckline for a demure finishing touch, while the timeless, floaty midi skirt features a red base-colour, making it easy to tie into your transitional wardrobe.

However, much to the shock of social media users, she isn't totally convinced and opts to return it.

Next, Leah tries on the 'blue tropical linen blend mini skirt' and matching 'blue palm print square neck top,' both £15.

The palm print leaf top features a flattering square neck and a button up front, while the coordinating mini skirt is crafted from a soft linen/viscose blend to help keep you cool and comfortable.

But while fashion fans up and down the country were fans of the look, Leah again decided against it.

However, things looked up when she styled the 'stone linen blend cropped trousers' which have an elasticated waist, two side pockets and functional drawstrings.

She paired the £17 versatile trousers with a casual white T-shirt and coordinating stone blazer – and was delighted with the look.

"Love the red dress," praised one.

A second penned: "The red dress looked lovely on you…"

A third agreed: "The red dress was stunning on you!"

Meanwhile, a fourth who was desperate to get her hands on the co-ord asked: "Do you have details for red/white dress please?"
