When Uniqlo offered me the opportunity to style a piece from their recent Celia Birtwell collaboration, I jumped at the chance. Celia Birtwell is a legendary textile designer whose iconic prints epitomised the 60s/70s. And I am happy to report her Uniqlo collection is sartorial perfection.  Not only is the collection gorgeous and wearable but the price points are extremely affordable too, starting at £9.90 for a printed scarf and ranging up to £29.90 for a shirt dress. With such good value on offer, I would highly recommend investing in a capsule collection of 3 or 4 pieces to mix and match in your Summer wardrobe.

I opted for a pair of pyjama pants (designed for daywear) having ogled them in the Grazia fashion charts. With an elasticated waist and relaxed shape they are extremely comfortable and easy to wear. With a skirt/trew hybrid such as these, I recommend treating them like a midi skirt if you are looking for styling ideas. However, they are definitely a spring/summer style so I wouldn’t recommend wearing them with tights. I’ve paired mine with a modern classic: the Breton tee (mine is Uniqlo) for a subtle print clash. The pants would look great with a flat ballet pump or a pointed court, but I have opted for my Aldo flatforms with mine for an east-meets-west feel.



 Uniqlo are running an Instagram competition at the moment to celebrate the Celia Birtwell collaboration.  To enter all you have to do is style an outfit featuring your Celia Birtwell purchases and hashtag it with #styledincelia. The competition will be judged by Celia herself with an exclusive signed Celia Birtwell print and 5 signed Celia Birtwell books up for grabs. The deadline is the 18th April so get Instagramming!
