In August, H&M announced a collaboration with Richard Allan – a London-based scarf and wearable art label. When I heard about the collaboration, I was so excited – silk scarves, bold prints and chic matching ensembles are what I am all about.

A collection full to the brim with beautiful pieces – the Richard Allan X H&M collection isn't for the timid.

Combining on-trend colour palettes with chic garments at affordable prices, this collection is perfect for the savvy fashionista.

Richard Allan formed the company in 1962. In his first year of selling his beautiful scarves, he sold over 50,000. His popularity grew and grew – his scarves were sold in Liberty, Harrods, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and many more large department stores. In 2014, his daughter Cate Allan relaunched the company. 

I think it's truly amazing that the legacy still remains and I absolutely love the fact that Cate Allan has continued her father's fabulous work.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on multiple pieces from the collection (thanks to some birthday money from my 22nd) and I am deeply in love with everything (and yes, there are still some bits I am in need of buying). Each piece is so unique and I love how they mix and match – great for daring darlings!

This outfit is probably my favourite ever outfit... and I'm not even exaggerating. Bold, beautiful, chic, classic, classy and just a dash of sass – there's nothing I dislike about this look.. in fact, I think this look sums me up pretty well.

I teamed the dogtooth roll neck top with the dogtooth pleated skirt to create the most striking and traffic stopping look. I then added some vintage clip on pearl earrings that were once my nan's, my Louis Vuitton Damir Azur handbag, a pair of Jasper Conran kitten slingback heels and some cat eye sunglasses. I obviously paired this look with a bright red lip and a 1950s inspired eye look – my go-to makeup look!

I truly believe that this outfit is a perfect all-rounder – perfect for any season, any occasion and any mood. I cannot wait to style this up in various different ways to create a whole different look and vibe.

Imagine this look with a red coat, a pink coat, a burnt orange coat, red shoes, trainers or courts – I can honestly envision so many beautiful looks and I cannot wait to rock them in the future.

I also think that this two piece is timeless.. I can bet you a million pounds that I'll still be rocking it in my 30s and even my 60s – it's just so timeless and that's what I love about it most!

The roll neck modal top was £9.99 (I also bought another pattern, stay tuned for an outfit post) and the skirt was £29.99. Under £40 for this outfit is such a STEAL.. I just wish they done this exact skirt in each of the beautiful patterns in this collaboration collection – because I would definitely be snapping them ALL up!

I adore H&M and their amazing collaborations. This collection with Richard Allan is by far my favourite.. it's affordable, chic, classic and has the most amazing modern twist. I cannot recommend it enough!
