All I Have To Say Is W.O.W! - A Zizzi Fashion Review!

What can I say except WOW! Not often do I see a clothing collection and fall in love with it at first glance! When Hanna came back from a trip home to Finland she had many fun and interesting stories to tell me but in addition to that she also had some gorgeous look books from her trip that she thought I'd like to see. Danish brand Zizzi have a collection that is fun, fresh, sexy and a little different. They call it W.O.W (Wardrobe Of Wonders). I have to say I think the name of the collection is the perfect title for such a gorgeous group of clothes and accessories. 

I first discovered Zizzi last year and I have to say they have fast become one of my favourite brands! The quality in their clothes is second to none, the style always hot and they definitely bring something different to the table style wise. When I first laid eyes on this Navy jumper and kilt set I knew I HAD to get my hands on the outfit! Keeping a close eye on the release date for the collection in anticipation, Hanna let me try on one of her outfits that she had been given by the brand to review before the release.

What I loved about this particular outfit is the way it embodies so many different style genres. I see hints of the 1950s in the shape and length of the kilt, the jumper gives off a fun and youthful vibe that would be suited to the 80s and 90s fashions. The richness in the navy and gold tones give off a regal feel that is really high fashion and the styles mixed together present something really fun and modern. This particular outfit is available in a series of colours from baby pink, baby blue, navy and black and white box grid print. I'm wearing a size L jumper and an XL skirt. I had planned to purchase this outfit on Navabi when the collection was released at the end of last month but unfortunately these items are not available on the website. Navabi is the only online outlet that sells Zizzi clothes to the UK. I had planned to get the top in an XL and the skirt in an L for a slightly better fit. 

The Jumper is a really stretchy and thick fabric that feels silky smooth to the touch. I really like the length of this one as it perfectly sits in the right place for a skirt to be worn with it. The kilt is a warm and thick material that would make this easy to wear towards the end of winter and would be a comfortable selection for the spring and summer. 

This outfit for me is really adaptable for a fun and playful look or a more casual chic feel. I really like the school uniform feel of this look. The deep navy tones and the rich gold allow for fun and playful accessories. I decided that I would wear a shiny black hair scarf to compliment the sheen in the jumper and a gold scrunchie in my hair to tie everything in. I completed this look with a simple pair of open toe nude heels and a clear perspex clutch with gold clasp.

Despite not being able to buy this outfit I was so excited to learn that I was the lucky winner of a Zizzi Instagram competition. All that was required was for entrants to post what size they would like to wear the jumper with a matching blue tube skirt and a winner would be selected at random. Like most things you never expect to be the person who wins the prize but I have to say this really made my day! I have loved this collection since first viewing the look books and I can 100% see why they called it W.O.W. 

The gorgeous Hanna has styled this outfit in another post check it out here. Check out her review of the digital print outfit here too. When Hanna, Lucie and I met up for a bloggers day of fashion and fun we just knew that Lucie would look gorgeous in the digital print outfit, she even had the perfect hair to match.
