How to wear the Morris & Co x H&M

On how ‘How to wear the Morris & Co x H&M collection’ and more! I am a big William Morris admirer – the moment I discovered his beautiful, unique prints and meaningful quotes, I felt inspired and happy, and I wanted to buy as many pieces of William Morris as possible! So, it seemed fitting when then Morris & Co x H&M collaboration was announced to save as many pieces as possible in my online cart and then, later on, to rush in the H&M store in Edinburgh and buy some pieces. To my surprise, there were many pieces left in store! After loafs of trying on and thinking, I bought this blue shirt dress and a pink printed sweatshirt, albeit right now, I regret not buying more. The star of the show though, is clearly this blue dress, so here today I am going to tell you how to wear the Morris & Co x H&M, in case you find difficult to style prints.

“Love is enough: though the world be a-waning, And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining.”
— William Morris

Loads of people asked me ‘How to wear the Morris & Co x H&M‘ after watching my Instagram Stories last week. I love mixing prints with stripes and denim so to me it came natural to wear the blue dress in a classy and casual way, pairing it with my denims, as it was a very cold day and my trench coat. Ultimately, I wore it as a shirt rather than a dress but it worked out very well. The straight cropped jeans and mid-calf length of the dress paid homage to one of my favorite decades – the 70’s! I went with a classic pair of leather brown boots from Office for footwear, and a statement necklace to jazz it up. How to wear the Morris & Co x H&M collection

      Oh that’s a shame! It’s a beautiful print, isn’t it? Have you tried online?x

    What a beautiful dress, you look stunning in it! I really like the way you combined it – if I had just seen the description I wouldn’t have assumed that this combination works but it actually does! I really like your trench coat, too, I have a similar one and I always feel like a detective when wearing it haha. xx
